Why do you say it is the only VVS fighter bomber?  Quite a few VVs fighters will carry two 100kg bombs which is about 450lbs compared to the P40s 500lb bomb.

You Person; It's a 500kg Bomb. that more than 1204/956 of your units. Add to that 4 Rockets. Or 64/16 in your way of counting. .

Umm..OK. I was mistaken.   Not sure what the 1204/956 or 64/16 comments were about though.  :huh:

yay ! F4 vs I-16 all maps :biggrin:

Honestly if you want to change something by making a suggestion than make a good reason for it.


Let's do it! Haha I was just joking around about the Rata, though I always miss it once it goes away after a few maps

Do you have to register for TAW or are you automatically registered the first time you fly on the server?

This far we've been automatically registered the first time we choose faction the first time joining the server. Pre-registration has been there mostly for squadrons. Afaik it'll be the same the coming campaign.

I think they're actually planning to get rid of auto-registration, to prevent people coming in and screwing around every time Wings crashes, like last campaign. I believe it was mentioned a few pages ago.

I'm looking for a English speaking squadron to fly with on the axis side, I only have BOS so far so I will be limited to Stukas and He-111's for the first few maps. Please pm me if you have a open slot for a fairly green pilot, cheers!

Yes, I believe so. The idea was just to get rid of the AUTO-registration. Now everybody will have to enter the website and register otherwise they will be auto kicked when they join the server I guess.... ?

I sure do hope the soviet lineup is bit more balanced this time. Last time it looked like it made by some very biased person towards LuftWaffels... and they still lost.  :rolleyes:

 

It is night unacceptable to have the last 2 maps of the campaign flown by Lagg-3 +1 instead of, say a derivative of Lagg-3: a mass produced plane like La-5 (that replaced Lagg-3) as a principle +1 plane, along with YaK-1 as a +1. You can keep the Lagg-3 as a 23mm interceptor/attacker along with P-40. The VVS had the air-spam figured out by the late 1942, please make the plane lineup more reflective of that fact. 

 

Meanwhile we got 5 maps of non-stop Hartmanns Hartmanning with F-4 all day erry day, 3 of witch the F-4 is +1. Stick em in +1 G-2's and G-4's and phase out F-4 towards the end.

I think its somewhat balanced, changing the F4 to G2/G4 wont make the hartmanning stop. Anyways, just like you argue about the soviet plane spam the LW guys could argue that in the early stages of the war VVS would mostly be flying I153 and I16s against F2's and F4's, which would do no good for the gameplay of the server. Besides, the F4 only gets CM+1 on map #5, when VVS already have planes like Yak1B, which can EASILY fight it off.

 

Also, just like you said, despite having the better planes LW still lost. 

 

-edit-

 

Keep in mind that the plane lineup is not purely historical, its kinda on the middle ground, thinking about gameplay AND a bit of historical scene.

Agreed, as much I enjoy historical context with regards to the planes available. The team does need to make it fair for everyone as well. Looking forward to next rotation of TAW.

Nothing in VVS arsenal can EASILY fight off anything Germans field until late 1943.

 

And sure, if you want to invoke the historical planes, then let me also  invoke historical numbers. VVS had numbers advantage, do the teams should be capped 40/60 in VVS advantage. But then someone would cry bloody murder because we [the virtual VVS] got "radios" and somewhat trained pilots and whatnot. See where i am going with this? 

 

And like you said, it is not historical line up, it is middle of the ground. And the last 2 maps were complete farce as of attendance and balance. VVS really just did not show up, and i cant blame them. Campaign was won and plane lineup was atrocious. So, no fun and no point to show up. 

 

But let me reiterate again, NOTHING in current VVS arsenal can deal with Luftwaffle stuff easily. Best you can do is achieve relative parity in low altitude scenarios.

New TAW campaign starts on Sunday 05.11.2017 in the morning

 

What's new:

  • the script works in online mode. All events are analyzed during the mission and pilot's hangar is updated after each sortie,
  • the Stalingrad_Center map has been extended, we added additional airfields,
  • the Kuban map has been added,
  • new layout of all buildings on the airfields. Now each airfield has it's own layout. You may check new recon photos on the main TAW page by clicking on the airfield name. Sirens and info about enemy plane near airfield were added,
  • aircraft are shifted between maps. If pilot has more aircraft in his hangar at the end of the map than aircraft in the next map according to the plane set then additional aircraft are shifted (but no more than max quantity),
  • if paratroops don't manage to capture enemy airfield,  they at least damage this airfield,
  • airfield can be supplied by air transport no more than 30% during one mission,
  • color of the icons on the map has been fix. Axis are blue and Allied are red. Please set "USSR always red" in game options,
  • added info in the briefing how many mission particular airfield is closed,
  • bug when enemy aircraft is shot down after end of pilot's sortie was fixed,
  • new plane set:

planeset_v1.5.1.jpg

  • maps rotation: #1 Moscow_North, #2 Moscow_South, #3 Stalingrad_Center, #4 Kuban, #5 Moscow_North, #6 Stalingrad_Center, #7 Stalingrad_South, #8 Kuban

 

Registration is open.

 

 

Good luck!

 

 

 

P.S. I haven't checked this topic for a long time so sorry for not answering your questions.

Agree! It’s my favorite plane in the game. Historically, shouldn’t the E model be present for all the battles covered on all maps? If it was, I don’t see how the P-40 would unbalance the map when compared to late axis aircrafts. Either way can’t wait to start. Hopefully NA time zones will have balanced teams this go around.
