Developer Diary, Part 104 - Discussion

104

 

Hi Everybody,

 

MC.202 entered the final stage of beta-testing. And it’s coming to the game really soon. Both visual and flight models are ready, and we’re testing them as a part of the version 1.102 release candidate. Speaking of the plane itself we can’t but share some of our observations, especially these five particularly interesting ones:

  1. Macchi is quite a well armed plane. It’s to high caliber machine guns are surely effective especially for taking down enemy fighters;
  2. A very good dive speed. The reference documents confirm that during flight tests the aircraft reached 765 km/h with no problem at all. This presumes that you can run this bird as fast as 850 km/h or even faster.
  3. Surprisingly its G-limit according to the original docs is 15.6;
  4. Impressive differences between specific planes within the same model and production series;
  5. Quite peculiar construction features such as: different wing size, reversed throttle controls, a designated marker drawn directly on the sight reflector and a fold-out metal back sight to be used with it, etc..

We hope you’ll like your first date with this Italian beauty. Here are a few pics with the Macchi for you, pilots. It’s coming really soon to Il-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Moscow early access program.

This has been confirmed. Italian pilots did report exactly what you say: "out of range" in the gauge, probably more than 850 Km/h.

Frankly, the Macchi is a type I'm really not interested in, but I must say it looks fantastic! And those summer map shots...you have no idea how much I'm looking forward to its release!

Looks lovely, but I just cannot, can not, wait, too much longer for those summer maps. They will take this game to the next level in my opinion.

 

Great work team
