  1. From what I have read so far in America's Hundred Thousand, wing guns were cocked on the ground for the P-40. I suspect that the other 6 or 8 gun fighter wing installations were the same but I haven't gotten there yet in the book LOL.
  2. Are you firing "unloaded" or while pulling the stick? I find that pulling any Gs at all really forces the bullet hose down below the nose.
  3. If you don't like how the developers are managing Bodenplatte, that's your prerogative...but there's no need to continually cry about it in this thread. You're just ruining the ride for everyone else.
  4. Indeed...I was more alluding to the "suspension of disbelief" difficulties that some users may experience when seeing 262s take off from rough dirt fields 🧐 Would not impact me one way or another.
  5. I believe he meant operating off a dirt runway in a jet without some sort of "gravel kit" to keep the intake from inhaling FOD.
  6. I also recall reading something about how the build quality of some LaGG-3s was so bad (for obvious reasons) that they weren't even getting the performance that a properly constructed airframe was capable of.
  7. Agreed...the poor Soviet dude looks kind of shabby in his piss-yellow jumpsuit 🤣
  8. Can't imagine why you would get any Flak over this post...the "Kept trying to bite the doctors. ( wtf?)" was worth the price of admission, LOL. Glad things have worked out for you and that you're here.
  9. Nice! I hated Catch-22 and gave up on it the first time I tried to read it back in the day. 22 years of active duty later it made complete sense to me 🤣🤣🤣
  10. Check M4T: http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=336
  11. Thanks gents! That is a nice paint, Tom. Hopefully in future they will standardize the models...I'd love to be able paint the P-40 like I did with the P-39.
  12. One of the benefits of being a Coastie was eating off China plates every meal aboard ship...never even seen a can opener used in anger LOL. My first cutter was a WW2 veteran and we must've had original equipment silver utensils and serving bowls in the wardroom...heavy stuff, you could drive nails with the spoon! I remember thinking "I could get used to this" 😂 Alas, progress did away with that kind of thing. On the topic: wolololo
  13. Yes, once you add the line to the config, it will save an acmi every time you record a track.
  14. Hello all! I see that as of update 3.001, the P-40 is supposed to have enhanced "bare metal" abilities like the A-20 and P-39. Unfortunately, I have not found this to be the case in practice...in other words I have used the same diffuse and alpha texturing techniques on the P-40 that I used on my P-39 skin but the result was not the same. The P-39 looks like aluminum that has been polished to a mirror shine whereas the P-40 looks like a very glossy silver paint at best. Any other painters observe this as well? Worth a bug report?
