    P47 dogfighter ?

    Literally untrue You can climb for 4 minutes like this at over 1000ft/min.

    It will literally climb at 55mph
  3. Hi guys Very frustratingly one of my careers was brought to an end prematurely by "automission start failed" yesterday. Instead of starting over I decided to do something about it and the fix is quite simple! You need this file "CP". BACK IT UP and close your game. and a database editor - I use this one which is freeware: http://sqlitebrowser.org To fix, open your database editor and load CP.db - if you change the tab to "Browse Data" and the Table dropdown to "career" you should see your careers listed as below: MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHICH CAREER TO EDIT. They are on seperate lines - you can figure it out by looking at currentDate (the day your pilot is on in the sim). It should be the same as the bugged day you cannot progress past ingame. The fix is very simple, however it may cause other bugs and glitches down the line - though in my opinion that's better than having no career at all. You can simply change the field currentDate to the day after your career's bugged day and the sim should then regenerate new missions and just generally sort itself out. You have to click "Apply" in the right side window where you change the data, then go up to File and hit "Write Changes". Reload your game and you should be able to log back into a working career. I recommend "Failing" a sortie by launching then quitting from the runway to skip over one more day just to be sure. One possible issue - I think this might tend to make you commander of the squadron, but that might be better anyway as you could potentially get around this bug in future by simply changing around the assignment of pilots and planes on the bugged day. This has worked for me to get around "automission start failed" and @DerSheriff to get around "mission save error" but please report back with your own results if it works for you. Tagging users I have seen with this issue: @LFL-EightyPLUS @Yogiflight @FlyingH @Utopioneer @Berimbau @PA_Spartan- @Lypa @Ishtaru @Willy_Winter @walter55 @ultraz @TWHYata_PL @19RAF_MJDixon @SFF_Make @LF_Gunkon @Ansirial @R6ckstar NEW FIX: TO STOP YOURSELF FROM BEING SQUADRON COMMANDER. Now you have this working you are probably Sqn. Commander. To fix this, load up your save, go check out your squadron population. Find another member of your squad and remember his name. Now what you do is navigate to the "Pilot" table and head to him. Set his "state" field to 1, then navigate to your pilot and set yours to 0. Log back into your game again and you should now be an average joe (you will have to "cycle" the day by failing missions until tomorrow to get this to update I believe).

    Gyro gunsight tutorial ?

    The best approach as was done IRL is to put the range control on an axis. If wingspan is set correctly then you wind the range until the target's wingspan hits the hexagon and pull the trigger. For the most part you'll be able to lead with some initial hits regardless of your convergence, but to make best use of this I recommend not below 320m which gives you a wingspan-width cone out to 640m. Reduce the range control as you close with the target to maintain perfect aim.

    Why I really want the Tempest

    I'm fully of the opinion that it still has yet to be visited in the first place.

    Why I really want the Tempest

    I really don't like this approach. It's been longer now since the P-47 was released than the entire time that elapsed between the 3D model reveal and inclusion in the game. In that time the FM has remained a magic-flap hovercraft with thoroughly unrealistic handling characteristics, engine limitations and damage resistance. 1C have not even commented on it. Are we to assume it's working as intended?

    2050hp for 1 hour 2400hp for 5 minutes

    It's not right, because the plane is not right.

    Why not drop flaps? The flight model is completely inaccurate regardless of flap usage or not. The only thing approaching reality on the P-47 is the speed at altitude graph.

    How to fly an 8-ton energy fighter Oh and you can reduce the stall speed from 75mph to 50mph if you remember to drop a few tons of ordnance.

    P-47 in BoBp is a turnfighter. Use flaps and the weight won't matter. Power-on stall speed with flaps is around 45mph. https://gfycat.com/wellgroomedelatedjunco

    A20 Bomber.

    One of the best interceptors in the game with the best short-term climb of any VVS plane. What's not to love? πŸ˜‚

    P-47D Level Speed

    Spitfire gains 15% power at +25lbs over +18lbs and initial climb goes up by (rough estimate) 40%

    When the P51 will be available?

    Let's not forget in May 1944 Tempests, Jugs on water, P-51Bs and Griffon Spitfires are shooting down G-6s and A-5s.

    When the P51 will be available?

    Because the P-51 was really flown with 150 octane fuel, the charts all calculate horsepower with ram for a realistic number. 1.98ata K-4s are so rare that the horsepower is calculated on paper, not measured in a moving aircraft with ram. I've been in discussion with the FM team on this topic and 1C need charts without ram for their engine modelling.

    Love those flaps πŸ˜„ Crazy climbing while what you assume would be fully stalled at 40mph!

    Down to 2000ft/min at 44mph Edit: pretty awesome angle of attack in those climbs πŸ˜„

    If you hold about 40 degrees pitch you can climb at around 3000 ft/min at 50mph though πŸ˜„

    Tried the K-4, back to the A3 :-)

    As long as you don't use any mode for longer than 10 minutes you can fly an entire sortie without ever using "continuous".

    Tried the K-4, back to the A3 :-)

    In the MW50-equipped 109s, WEP is allowed for bursts of 10 minutes then recharges in 10 minutes while at Combat power. This means you can go 10m WEP followed by 10m Combat before going back to 10m WEP then 10m Combat again. After this you will have only 5 minutes MW50 remaining for one last 5 minute WEP run.

    Kills the engine? You never even have to drop below Combat power for a sortie if you don't want to. You just have to make sure that you open it all the way when on emergency power to trigger the MW50 injection. A K-4 can fly a sortie like this without engine damage: MET: Power Setting: 0-10m. WEP 10-20m. Combat 20-30m. WEP 30-40m. Combat 40-45m. WEP Then it runs out of fuel. It's also faster at Combat than any other plane in the game at normal combat altitudes. WEP just extends that difference further. Being unable to escape from a Spitfire or Yak, both on 1943 engine settings, in your 1945 K-4 is unheard of. The K-4 is 100kph faster than either of those planes in a straight line and climbs better than both at almost all normal combat altitudes.

    Me 410 and Mosquito

    During my research into 2TAF I have catalogued the variety of Mosquitos and their engine types that would need modeling for this to happen: 2TAF Key: Mosquito VI IX XII XIII XVI XVII XVIII Tsetse XXX Night Fighter Squadrons: 418 140 264 29 140 219 219 219 Strike Fighter 605 409 400 488 410 Bomber 613 264 4 488 Photorecon 305 604 107 488 21 409 487 Engine M22/23/24/25 M72* M21/23 M21/23 M72*/73*/76*/77* M21/23 M22/23/24/25 M72*/76*/113* *=2sp 2stg SC It would make most sense for us to get a Merlin 22/23/25 Strike Fighter Mk. VI, however these are absolutely slow compared to the opposition in late 44/early 45 and don't have the power to climb high and level bomb without a 7-series two-stage supercharger.

    Tactical Air War

    Had a very strange sortie. This player @EG14_Victor teamkilled @PeterZvan after I set him on fire, then disconnected to end his sortie. https://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=74978&name=EG14_Victor
