    TFS Developer Update – Nov/Dec 2018

    Thanks for the update Bonks!
  4. Thanks for the reply. Will there be skin templates released?
  5. Yes, CH will last a decade or more, like mine which my dad bought in 2001 or something, but they are not value for money nowadays. Like not at all. They are not very precise and cost too much for what they offer.
  6. How do you diff breaking? I've thought of getting these and the issue of toe breaks has kept me away. If I had the cash, I'd go for Crosswinds.

    BF 109 pilots flying without canopy for best vision

    Yes, but 109 pilots should be able to do it even if it rips away from the speed.

    BF 109 pilots flying without canopy for best vision

    It's not cheating the game, visibility is lower in the game than it is in real life. Therefore I find opening the canopy for a bit of extra visibility fine. I open it when looking for contacts, when there's no need to be going fast. I then close it before a dive. It should not be considered cheating and should be kept in the game. Pilots used to open the canopy for take-off and landing anyway...
  9. Will we be getting Hurricane IIc's with 2 out of 4 cannons installed? No. 238 Squadron removed the outside cannons to improve maneuverability.

    If they want to fly like that it's their choice, they eat all that drag anyway and are easier to PK. I fly with the canopy open on my Mig-3 all the time.

    [RESOURCE] ON HOLD- Unit Emblems IL-2 Great Battles

    I found the emblems for No. 335 and 336 Greek Squadrons RAF and I trying to find out what colours would have been used for these. The first one would probably have used the standard HAF blue (4f81a6) as the field, but other than that I cannot guess.
  12. Hello gents, this is an info thread for TF5 and two squadrons very dear to me which flew around the Tobruk area at the time. Major Xenophon Varvaresos, Commanding Officer of No. 335 (Greek) Squadron, in front of a Hawker Hurricane at Aqir, Palestine In April 1941, the German Wehrmacht overran Greece. The Greek government under King George II fled to Allied-controlled Egypt, where it began to establish expatriate Greek Armed Forces. These were formed out of personnel that had been evacuated from Greece or fled to the Middle East during the Occupation, and were equipped and organised along British lines, coming under British command. They had also been formed from Greeks who migrated to Egypt or were born in Egypt before the War. No. 335 (Greek) Squadron COs of No. 335 No. 335 (Greek) Squadron was based out of the following fields throughout the war: No. 335 paintschemes: Photographs of No. 335: Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIb, 335th (Greek) Sq, Squadron Leader X. Varvaressos, South African Lieutenant Colonel D.H Loftus and Squadron Leader J. Kellas. 6 September 1942.

No. 336 (Greek) Squadron COs of No. 336 No. 336 (Greek) Squadron was based out of the following fields on the TF 5.0 Tobruk map: No. 336 paintschemes: Photographs of No. 336: The Greek Prime Minister, George Papandreou (third from right) and the Greek Air Minister, M Fikioris (second from right), accompanied by Air Commodore G W Tuttle, Air Officer Commanding Air Headquarters Greece (seventh from right), and other Allied officers, inspects a line of Supermarine Spitfire Mark Vs and pilots of No. 336 (Hellenic) Squadron RAF during an official ceremony at Kalamaki/Hassani to welcome Greek units serving with the Allied Air Forces back to their homeland. No. 337 Wing RAF, of which Nos. 335 and 336 (Hellenic) Squadrons RAF and No. 13 Squadron, Royal Hellenic Air Force formed part, arrived in Greece on 16 November 1944, and continued operations there until its disbandment on 15 June 1946, after which the Greek squadrons were transferred to Greek control.

Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIc, 336th (Greek) Sq., 219 CW R.A.F., (Psilolignos C.). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ In November the Greek squadrons returned to liberated Greece, where they were engaged in operations against the remaining German garrisons in the Aegean islands and Crete. On 31 July 1945, the squadron was disbanded from the RAF and transferred to Greek control. The motto of the 335 Squadron Αίεν Υψικρατείν ("Always dominate the Heights") is now the official motto of the Hellenic Air Force. And here is a test CloD skin I made a while back for the No. 335 Other paintschemes. All paintschemes for these squadrons are widely debated as to their accuracy.

    TFS Developer Update – October 2018

    You said it yourself "In Clod you can click how many things 2 or 3 to be ready to go ?" That's exactly my point. It requires some pilot input. I grant you, not very much, but it's something. At least I'm doing it myself and not one button for me. The most amazing thing would be a mix of the two. Click a few buttons to get going and then the button press takes over for the rest of the more complicated stuff.
