    Tank controls are ridiculous

    I don't know how you can say it looks arcady, it just looks old.

    A very unique P-51D

    Hype about ME262

    109 WEP doesn't eat at your combat power time as well, leaving you with only 5 minutes of combat power instead of 15. It also recharges on combat power. US/RAF WEP needs to be on continuous power to recharge WEP.

    That's because the British had the luck of facing nearly every Tiger tank the Germans threw on the Western front, the only major exception being the Battle of the Bulge.

    Hype about ME262

    Yeah, because the payload used to maximize tactical effectiveness is entirely equivalent to the amount of (or lack of) aircraft that operated.

    Sherman modelled in game should have horrendous gunsights, probably some of the worst fitted along with the early British gun tele/periscopes. It would have either the Telescope M32 mounted in M3 Periscope with 1x magnification and 11 degrees field of view or M38 telescope mounted in M4 periscope with 1.44 - 1.5x magnification (sources vary) and 9 degree field of view.

    You don't control tank turrets by pointing with the Mouse and the "turret AI" automatically pointing to where you want like in arcade games. You should have to give actual inputs. Best way to represent this is mouse joy like in steel beasts, where the center of the screen is a deadzone and, for example, you move the mouse to the left, the turret will continue rotating left until you move it back to the center And add inputs that dont conflict with aircraft of course

    Learning P-47 Thunderbolt acrobatics?

    http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/p-47/Naca_TN_2899__F-47D-30_Flight_Test.pdf P-47D-30, but as far as I am concerned, it is suitable.The two major additions, the tail fin extension was to counter yaw instability, and dive flaps to aid in getting out of a high speed dive. Not what we are dealing with.

    Learning P-47 Thunderbolt acrobatics?

    NACA report on P-47s flight characteristics describe the P-47s stall far different then they are in the game currently, namely that in an accelerated stall, lateral instability is easily controlled by the ailerons, ingame you drop a wing with no warning and with no way to save it.

    Are there plans to expand this to US/German Campaigns?

    My idea for for West Front 44-45 Battle of Normandy mainly focusing on the British forces which faced 85% of the German armor in this period M4 Sherman (75mm standard with 17 pdr as a mod) Tiger II P M10 (with 17 pdr as a mod) Stug III G Cromwell V Panther A Churchill VII Panzer IV H M4A1 76W Sherman Marder I or III Tiger I currently ingame can be have an upgrade to represent Tiger I in Normandy (new copula, mantlet etc) Battle of the Bulge focusing mainly on the Americans and not just Battle of the Bulge itself but also crossing of the Rhine (like how Bodenplatte represents a longer period) M4A3 Sherman (gonna need both 75 and 76mm turrets tbh) Tiger II H M4A3E2 Jumbo Sherman (with the 76mm as a mod) Jagdpanzer IV M18 Hellcat Jagdtiger M36 Jackson Panther G Comet or Pershing Jagdpanzer 38t
  11. None of the engines are pushed that hard to do that with the the exception of the P-40 as it has no regulator and can overboost way over Allisons WEP setting of 56"Hg (and even then RAF and RAAF units operated at 66-72"Hg for prolonged periods of time like 20 minutes without hurting the engine.) I personally would happy with the option to remove technochat with the exception of what power setting you are in. Gamey engine mechanics deserve gamey representation.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    Some corrections, M4A1 with the 76mm were only ever fitted on large hatch M4A1s. No large hatch A1s had the 75 mm (unless you count the DD Swimming Tanks which were based off large hatch M4A1s). I personally believe the Churchill Mk VII is more appropriate for Normandy as well considering it first saw action there. I would also replace the M5 Stuart with the Cromwell. Unless TC becomes far more in depth (i.e. infantry), light tanks don't really have a place. I would also replace the Tiger E (which can really be represented by ingame mod of current ingame Tiger) with the Tiger II with early turret which took part in Normandy.

    Asymmetrical flap damage Me 109

    Recently I had the P-40 lose 1 flap from combat damage and it was impossible to counter the roll induced when fully lowered

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    The problem with Korea is the plane set especially after 1951 where the communists sole aircraft model is the MiG-15. Meanwhile the UN Forces have a large diversity of aircraft currently not modelled available to them, I don't think the 5vs5 plane set would work. UN would have to have more aircraft modelled for them. Or they could go into what-if scenarios and add aircraft that could have taken part but didn't like Il-28
