  1. That last drawing even has Eric Hartmann's ground crew as good models.
  2. 109F-2 can wipe the floor with those fighters in that mission. That is actually a fun little campaign. Fly the F-2 like a jet - use your speed and firepower.
  3. Same MG as the A5, but better cannons in the outer wings. Primary difference is the redesigned wing that makes the aircraft more versatile.
  4. If it's as good as it looks, every computer related purchase I make (or don't make) will center around that simulation.
  5. Bully Lang was killed when he decided to fly and aircraft with malfunctioning landing gear. He knew it and took it anyway. Gear came down when he tried to maneuver in combat - his wingman saw it down before Lang went in. Try dogfighting with your landing gear down. Should have left that plane at the airfield.
  6. Wait. You mean it's actually possible to make the P-51 more maneuverable? Good grief. I guess that explains some of the nonsense I see online, but was unable to duplicate when I was flying the P-51 on DED. My understanding is that there is also an interesting mixture cheat setting but I've not tried it.
  7. I've got I think 3 K4 from JG27 - will have to check where they came from.
  8. Yes, the P-51 was well known to soak up much defensive fire in real life. It’s engine and cooling system was considered to be extremely durable and able to take a lot of punishment. Thats why you see so many photos of P-51 returning to base with heavy battle damage. Looks like the developers did a great job replicating that.
  9. I'll refrain from judging either Hermann Graf or Bud Mahurin. Doing so is neither arguing nor revisionist history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann_Graf In 1971 Graf made his own statement to the newspaper, "Bild am Sonntag", saying that he, along with others including Hartmann, had briefly joined the BDO (an anti-Nazi group of German ex-officer prisoners) as a way to survive the psychological deprivation of the imprisonment. Bergström et al say this is borne out by the Russian RGVA archive of Graf's POW file which makes no mention of extended co-operation with pro-Soviet groups. The BDO was disbanded after only a few months.[135] Reference is from: Graf & Grislawski—A Pair of Aces. Hamilton MT: Eagle Editions. ISBN 978-0-9721060-4-7.
