Tactical Air War

IMO is IS the fighters thats is making the difference.


Things I have noticed -

 

1. Russian fighters always seem to have air superiority over the majority of their targets. I have not made a single bombing run (Apart from depots) where I havn't been intercepted.

2. Russian fighters always escort bombers and attackers. I have not attacked an Il2 or Pe2 yet without being immediately pounced on by and i16 or P40.

 

I think the Russians were just playing smarter (Also they destroyed out depots pretty quickly while we did minimal damage to theirs).

Even when Axis had higher numbers, I16's were still able to escort and intercept every flight I've been on.

 

The 87 is a great tank killer, but try flying it anywhere near an objective and you'll be made of Swiss cheese.

 

 

So is it a gunners problem or a Pe2 problem? Seems like most of the complaints are specifically against the Pe2?

 

Why are the Pe2 gunners so much better than others? Is it just down to the amount and their large field of views?

 

The Pe2 gunners especially on PE2 series 35 (which we have now on current maps in TAW) have very narrow field of fire (except pe2 series 87 with turret)- The problem is with wannabe hartmans whose only tactic against the bombers is to sit on target six within 100m and be totally astonished that the gunners hit them...

 

Some time ago someone post stats from WOL where the best def ration against fighters had HE111 -16 the 2nd was PE2 series 87 - both have top 12,7/13mm guns with good fields of fire, range and hitting power so comming close to their 6 is even more deadly than other bombers - just shoot from a distance to get them or make slashing attacks from the sides without breaking the 100m range barrier

 

Generally as i wrote earlier - gunners are generally ineffective UNLESS YOU SIT ON BOMBER 6 OR FLY BY DURING THE ATTACK CLOSE TO THE BOMBER WITHIN THE GUNNERS FIELD OF FIRE. Just shoot from a distance ~300m and You'll be perfectly safe. or make slashing attacks from the sides without comming to close

What i find most interesting about this clip, (apart from the good flying)

is he never once looks at the Temp gauges, lever positions, rad positions etc.

instead relies totally on the technochat, 

Even though people say it gives you no advantage.........really!!!

The advantage is minimal. An extra glance at the temps wouldn't have made any difference to any of those engagements.

Not being a map maker, I have no idea how long things take, although I appreciate that it is not as easy as some might think.  That said, I was unable to bomb one of the targets because I was unsure of the orientation of the target and unfortunately I went for an airbase at 6K and was subsequently shot down.  Therefore, with the greatest respect and with cap in hand, may I ask how long that work in progess will take please?

 

Thank you

Hi,

Nothing is easy to do in this campaign - logarithms, mission maps, planeset, suply and tank columns, airfield pictures or other graphic contetnt also. We all are doing what w can, to get it work correctly, without problems, bugs and ofcourse delay. But sometimes one thing need more time to be finished than other, in particular when everyone has a different amount of time.
I can assure you that all pics will be finished asap, day or two.

Cheers!

The Techno chat defiantly has its advantages to just using the gauges, but also keeps the server a little bit more accessible for the more casual and less skilled players (ie:me)

its your decision to play without warnings. Not the others problem. And you have to check temps regardless. and he does btw. at 8:15. 
its obv. easier. But nothing to complain about. at least not here.

The name has to be exactly the same. Login and change the name

No joy although I've dropped the underscore character at TAW. What is the source of the lower login?

I have no real appreciation of what work is involved, however I do appreciate the fact that you guys do this stuff for the enjoyment of others.  I would sooner wait and get the usual quality from you guys rather it being rushed, but was just wondering how long it would be roughly and was not wishing to appear demanding.  However, thank you for that clarification.

Admin,

 

I have just realised that your website stats update almost immediately after every sortie.  I haven't noticed this before and always assumed it  updated at the end of each game. 

Nice touch to be able to see how a flight went, even after Supply mission!

Cheater or not I don't know him, give us a proof I'l be happy the pay the beer. Until then it's just ear says and borderline crusade.

 

That's correct and the reason why i haven't brought up his name. I simply stated that his video doesn't proof anything in one way or another and that it is naive to think otherwise. However it is interesting to see how there seem to be only 2 narratives. He is either a cheater or a god.

 

In the end, there will be no end to the discussion. If you think he is a cheater, stop playing when he is around. If not, just keep going.

I didn't get to play the last campaign so missed out on that!

However, having real time stats is just fantastic, as it certainly allows me now to plan better if I need to recover CM points!!!

Thank you guys!

Gents,

 

I for one am totally over the moon that this video has attracted so much attention and "up-votes" and "likes" from so many players as I'm sure that any video(s) that will attract more players into this sim and even more into the MP area is good for us all in the long term and hopefully will generate greater revenue for Jason's team and hopefully we will get more Great Battles. 

 

However, having said that, it is just a shame that there are a few players who have mentioned this video or continually keep trying to highlight it in this forum, do not actually appear to be currently playing in this latest TAW campaign or indeed appear to have little inter-actions in WOL, which is another very popular MP. 

 

Therefore gents, please do not feel shy, as I'm sure if you are able to mock me in this open forum, although you might be from another forum, I'm sure we would all like to perhaps see you in this latest TAW campaign, as since the latest patch up-dates the game is amazing and the TAW guys just seem to be making the campagins better and better.  That said, we have a lot to thank these guys for and I will certainly be making a donation to TAW and would encourage everybody to do what ever they can to keep this server running. 

 

So please feel free to join us in this fantastic MP server, as it would be really good to see some of you actually in the MP game on a regular bases and perhaps you could wing up with MK.MRx in a big sortie and chase those bombers with him and perhaps make your own videos of shooting me down, how exciting would that be for you, hey!?  However, if you are new and TAW is a little bit too hard-core for you, WOL is another server, although that has GPS enabled.

 

 

Regards and happy hunting!

I have to say that the weather parameters that we get when it rains are quite horrible, also theres a rendering issue making the planes appear white from a distance and when you get close you can't see anything behind you because of the rain drops so at the moment one could argue that this is not very viable gameplay wise at least with these settings.

Also correct me if i'm wrong but when there was such heavy rain and low clouds I'm pretty sure that nobody would fly the rain would make the ground soft and make it impossible for most planes to take off at least in dirt let alone see anything and navigate (in the real war).

Could it be possible to get at least a bit less rain if thats even possible or at least a better visibility with a higher layer of clouds?

 

Also please do something about AAA at least on the objectives theres so much of it (on depots) and it's so accurate because ace AAA is basically aimbotting that it makes dive bombing near impossible and very deadly and I doubt its very realistic that AAA gets hits most of the time in a dive and also with poor visibility let alone the fact that AAA is just broken in this game and will hit you throught forests and see throught obstacles so i'm asking you please no more ace AAA on objectives it's already hard enought to dive bomb due to the sheer amount of batteries sometimes and it kinda ruins the fun.

Honestly TAW is the only server where I get shot down and murdered  by AAA more often than by enemy fighters.

Eeeeh, I just got captured while bailing inside German territory while flying German... I was pretty close to front (maybe 1km), but i am positive I was in german territory

Is that due to :

- Frontline on map does not accuratley show the 'real' frontline?

- there is a chance you get captured, even when landing in your own territory if it's close to the front?

The latter.  I think the chance of it happening decreases incrementally from the frontline.  It's probably in the manual.

 

Once, a few campaigns, ago I was captured at my own airfield!

Something doesn't seem right. Normally on your sortie statistics it states the sector you bailed or were captured in.

For your captured sortie, that detail isn't there.

Hello LG / Admins,

 

during this sortie http://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=16850&name=Fenris_Wolf the pilot =FPS=Cutlass rammed me at 15:20:00, who was too horny for a kill.

 

He hit the target once, it appears here in the logs: http://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=16909&name=III./JG5_Golan_Heights

 

His plane was invulnerable and did not take damage. It would explain him being reckless? How can this be? Null damage even though he crashed into me? He did not even apologize. Here is his sortie log. http://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=16937&name==FPS=Cutlass

He took not one ounce of damage, and I got captured.

 

Please take a look at the time-stamps. Please look at your server logs. Thank you. :unsure:

Wellenbrecher, you mentioned cheat. Let's not dive into such a discussion.

 

 

So, an aircraft that was not there hit me, and didn't get damaged by itself, but I got rammed and I lost plane by a ghost - a ghost which didn't hit me? :o: My pilot is now in Gulag.. :dry:

You're the one insinuating it, don't try to put the blame on wellenbrecher for going down that road.

 

He probably didn't take damage because of lag - to put it very simply the game has to predict where the aircraft are moving to a certain extent, and on your end they collided, where on his end they probably had a near miss.  This happens all the time.

that is a common occurance. The networking of the game works in a parcicular way that allows for such things. Its easy to say "that must be fixed". But netcoding is  a complex thing. If you ever played the Battlefield series you might remember the "TV Rocket" bug. A rocket hits a moving target but does no damage, but impacts the object physically.
Similar story here.

Guys! I will be the 1st person to agree with anyone that has unequivocal (not open to more than one interpretation; unambiguous) proof of cheating. 

 

It is in very bad taste to come here to this public place with no evidence other than "what you think happened". It's disrespectful and juvenile to insult someone because your virtual  pilot (i.e. not real - no matter how much "real" time we spend playing this game) died and you are pissed off at yourself for not zigging when one should've zagged LOL.

 

Life isn't perfect - deal with it!

That kind of attitude does nothing to help the fact that there really are cheaters out there playing this game.

 

They are very hard to catch with irrefutable evidence (as not everyone is both aware of the cheaters whilst regularly recording tracks/compiling videos). However, it becomes orders of magnitude less hard if enough awareness and suspicions are raised around a certain individual.

 

Evidence can start coming from there and therefore if these suspicions aren't raised in the first place, people may as well bury their heads in the sand and nothing will get done whilst the cheating goes on with impunity.

 

A cheater was caught red handed on another server just recently after people started calling him out. It could have been very easy to dismiss these claims as being mistook for lag in this instance, and I'll admit that I straight away dismissed it at first. However, people were made aware and he was luckily recorded and caught red handed in the act with action taken against the reprobate.

 

For all we know, this said cheater could be playing on this server, and it would certainly not help to remain head in sand and belittling anybody for calling out such reprehensible abuse.

Fenris never accused anyone of cheating. Only the likes of Tuesday and Wellenbrecher have put those words  into his mouth.
