  1. Damn, a crane with a glass cockpit! Nice! Does it have lift-by-wire?
  2. It has been brought to my attention that I am in fact 3200km from home and only arrive on Friday afternoon. I might make it, Father Time will be the judge though so make me a standby entry please.
  3. Unfortunately this Friday it was indeed very troublesome. From our channel with the Il-2s and MiG-3s we only received whispers from Tip and NN, but for some reason our replies were not reaching. This time we failed to do proper whisper checks between channels and, well, the result was that. We need to get back to our old ways, these cross-wearing weirdos in their tacky Messerschmitts are having too much fun for their own good On a lighter note, here's Pod getting his MiG-3 up to speed: Nocke and Cat ready to go in their Il-2s:
  4. By all means take a day to go north (car, bus, train, whatever) and visit the Duxford museum. RAF Hendon is nice but Duxford is on a whole new level.
  5. I'd love a Rafale but I'm more than happy with the Dorito 2000. Had a little run-in with an S-300 site the other day, managed sneak in and take it out up close and personal with rockets on the F-5!
  6. Jizzo and I were about to do our best Maverick and Goose impression with a show-off fly-by in Indian territory but five spoilsports decided to interrupt our art so we had to shoot three of them down.
  7. Picked up "Iranian F-14 Tomcat Units in Combat" by Tom Cooper for the non-fiction read, and a short story collection by Murakami called "Men Without Women" for the fictional side.
  8. Without getting extensive, to me Il-2 Great Battles is easily #1 right now, followed by DCS at #2. 1946 was great for a long time but it was already showing its age by 2009, and the only reason modders and Daedalus had to support it for so long were the Cliffs of Dover development problems. It remains, however, the most influential combat flight simulator to date!
  9. This is going to be a blast to fly, and Tank Crew will make it even cooler! Imagine that, hanging out over the tree tops picking up targets for your fellow tankers?
  10. I think r/il2sturmovik works well, it's good to have some direction. Thanks for running it, GridiroN!
  11. Whatever the case, FIFA and WADA, coordinating with McLaren and Rodchenko, actually did a thorough investigation into the Russian national team and found absolutely nothing out of the ordinary. They have a good bunch now, a healthy mix of experienced leaders and hardworking youngsters. I'm looking forward to Sunday.
  12. Fantastic work, this is looking even more exciting than I imagined!
  13. While I think the direct comparison is somewhat useless, here's my €0,02 - entirely subjective, not some one truth to rule them all. Both simulators are very good. I spend my simulator time evenly between the two, and I'm very happy with that. Terrain: We can actually make a direct comparison, with the 2.5 Caucasus DCS map and the 3.00X Il-2 Kuban map. DCS looks fairly better from high altitude, but from 3000m and lower Il-2 beats it by far. The trees and shoreline blend in better, the fields look natural and grassy, the towns are built in a more believable way... it's all th
  14. I'm a bit late, but check these links: In English, mostly late war unit markings: http://wio.ru/simbols/sov-en.htm In Russian, about early war markings: https://warspot.ru/6593-bukvy-i-tsifry-na-ishakah-i-migah In Russian, unit markings: http://wio.ru/simbols/iap.htm
  15. Skins by me (2º/1º GAvCa, foreground) and SuperSixRS (1º/14º GAv, background).
  16. Good win to get things started, I'm excited for them. Tomorrow there's Portugal, but I'll have to wait until Sunday to see deary old Brazil in action.
