  1. I still have this issue . Would you please post how you worked it out ? Thanks in advance.
  2. I finally had the time to enjoy the update. It is a beautiful pirce of software. Outstanding job by all concerned. Very much looking forward to the final content, winter map etc.
  3. The P-51A used the same 4 X 20mm , years earlier.
  4. To truly appreciate how superior the P-51 design was consider the weight difference: P-51-25 Spit. LF mk.IX BF-109G-6 Empty: 7,125 5,800 5,900 Normal loaded: 10,100 7,500 6,950
  5. You decide the validity of a source and than rewrite history. ... Not interested.Name a German aircraft that didn't perform well against the VVS. Hell the Brewster Buffalo had a better K/D ratio than the 110 against the VVS.
  6. "doubtful and dubious" ,I did not quote a source,nor have you. The Hurricane is credited with more total kills than the Spitfire during the BOB. Does this make the Hurricane a better fighter ? The BOB lasted 6 months , the war lasted 5.5 years for the Luftwaffe. History tells the 110 was poor at what it was designed to do.
  7. The Bf-110 and the Ju-87 were rendered obsolete during the BOB,in fact the 110 had the dubious distinction of needing a fighter escort . If the 110 did have better k/d ratio it would be because the 109 had no range and could barley engage before needing to return to base. The Luftwaffe was forced to use the 110. No myth, when the were used as intended as an interceptor against the bomber stream they were annihilated. However, like other poor designs including the Ju-87 it went on to be relatively successful against the VVS.
  8. Slight correction the P-80 was originally designed by Bell,. Lockheed took over the project and kept the original Bell design.
  9. When you freely admit you are not an expert, however make statements as though you are .You continual prove the former . I am certain through your exhaustive research you have gleaned the following indisputable facts. The Luftwaffe lost more aircraft to the West than the VVS. Secondly, The US lost more aircraft to German AAA than the Luftwaffe. What I find hilarious are Luftwaffe pilots when outnumbered by VVS planes considered it a target rich environment, adding to their scores. However, when outnumber ( even though at the point of attack they frequently outnumber the US escorts) against the west they were annihilated.
  10. You have certainly proved your point.
  11. Hitlers biggest mistake was to declare war on the US, game ,set and match. The Germans never had anything but a tactical air force with limited range .
  12. I just hope they model both of them !
  13. Just as a reference my post was not referring to the Russians. I am not referring to the Russians.
  14. Yes, it is accomplished with vastly superior leadership skills married to a superior plan to prosecute a war..
