Wow... I see alot of people wanting balance, but then i see others wanting historical accuracy. 

 

PLEASE SELECT ONE, THE PLANE SET IS OBVIOUSLY NOT GOING TO BE FAIR IF YOU WANT HISTORICAL ACCURACY 

 

The current plane set is neither historical nor balanced.

 

also there is a discussion a couple of pages back about balance.

 

this is a sim game. Balance has no place in it.

New TAW campaign starts on Sunday 24.06.18 European morning.

  • Randomized level of AI gunners,
  •  Pilot will not score AK if he dies earlier or AK happens during the new sortie (example: pilot damaged enemy aircraft then landed and started a new sortie and then enemy aircraft crashes)

 

How random are the gunner skills? Do they go all the way from crappy to super, or medium to super, or bad to medium, or...?

 

Why the change to AK scoring? Is it a technical limitation, or is it just because it is an "unobserved" kill, or...?

 

And one thing about the planeset: How come the Germans get the 109 F-4 on map #2? The F-2 is superior to the MiG already, and it's not like the P-40 can compete other than in turn radius and dive speed, even against the F-2.

In the first place I do not see very right that the red team has to wait for the fourth map to have a lagg3 with cannons

 

Lies.

The Lagg3 comes by default with 20mm cannon and a single .50cal which was by far the most common loadout for the lagg3. Saying that the lagg3 comes without a cannon is simply not true. The 23mm cannon was so rare on lagg3's that you could count the number of planes fitted with it in a single hand but in game everyone and their dog uses it; and the 37mm only comes on the late series, but I guess you reds forgot about that.... :rolleyes:

Lol, i love how people were abdicating for a more historical lineup, and when the TAW team does it, everyone complains

 

Give them a break guys, they did what YOU asked, the f4 WAS present in the battle of moscow.

Just because the F-4 was present doesn't mean that this is a correct way to put it into map 2. 

 

As it is now you will see as many F4s in the air as F2s which is far from reality because very few units were equipped with them. Of course you can argue that this justifies it putting it on 0/1 but in my opinion this is a slippery slope because it would/should be the case for other aircrafts as well.

Especially cause the Russians don't even get an extra mig to compensate.

True. In historical plane set we would have Ju 88 from the start.

You can make some of the people happy all of the time, but none happy all the time. I am just glad it is kicking off. For at least a few maps the reds are slightly at a disadvantage, especially with the F4 but that seems historically accurate in a broader sense of the actually war, not plane set :)

And the 1941 F-4 would be limited to 1.3 ata as well IIRC.


@StG77_Kondor imho considering the most competitive way of dealing with tank columns for both sides is carpet bombing with 50 and 100 Kg bombs I don't consider the IL-2's 23mm a big issue, it's effectiveness is also decreased by crosswinds and low level turbulence which tends to be common in TAW missions.
 For what I could test the 23mm needs 20 impacts to destroy a Panzer IV in the side (15 to set it smoking), the 30mm needs 8-9 hits to destroy a T-34 in comparison (7 to set it smoking). So the 30mm is more powerful, but the IL-2 has two cannons and they have higher rate of fire which makes a one pass kill possible. If there was an Me 410 with twin MK 103s in the nose killing T-34s in one pass would be possible and maybe even easier than with the IL-2, seeing it would be a shorter burst and from center mounted guns.

don't wanna make a thing out of this, but fact is the Ju 88, Pe-2, and A20B are also significantly impacted by crosswinds and turbulence when hitting tank columns. if I had a buck for every time I've been knocked 20m off the road one second before drop, I could gift every game in the Great Battles inventory.

The problem is that F-4 with 1.3 ata is much better than F2.

@Norz I don't see how will affect how many times I've flown the ju-52 to the fact that red cannot air capture any bases so please don't step into personal issues if you don't have any real argument. What I'm trying to expose is that I don't mind flying or escorting transports to air-capture AFs, I'd just like to have a counterpart on the red side. And while we don't get one it's completely unfair.

 

@StG77_Kondor ask the finns how many AFs did they conquer on the last edition... and I'm sure a lot of people played their part on the air-captures.

 

and regarding the planeset, I did not enter into detail, we fight with what we have, but it shocks some of us the fact that we are not getting any shvaks in the first missions nor VYas but there are plenty of Bk-37s and gunpods for the blue side (except italian 20mm gunpods *only* on the first map). Fine.

 

Anyway, check out the pilot's ratio: the war is ours comrades!:)

Well give us the 20mm on the i16, if you are not afraid to die.

By the way Yaks and Migs also were present in the battle of Moscow

Stay historical its the way the server is meant to be from  the start.  

Reds have won most campaigns anyhow .So things not that bad for red.

Well in this case stop talking about Historical, things are set unbalance until blues win.

We dont have the early Yak that was present on the battle of Moscow ingame.

 

 

I guess blues arent allowed to win or have any type of advantage huh ? Any minor change that makes the life of blue players a tiny bit easier is met with strong disagreement from reds every single time

Stop being ridiculous.

 

We neither have the early F-4 in the game. I am all for Blue winning once but saying that they don't have an advantage, especially in the fighter department, is just plain ignorant. The F-2 is already outperforming the MiG in every aspect except for flaps deployment speed.

We all know the Yak and Mig, while present in siege of Moscow, was far too powerful to make for a fair fight for the Luftwaffe. Yes, having anything but Rattas seriously puts Hans at a great disadvantage.  Therefore, on the grounds of balance and realism, it should not be present in TAW.

I never said that the germans didnt have an advantage on the figther department, stop putting words into my mouth.

If the F4 is so much better then remove it from the map 2 and make it available only from map 3 onwards, its the first time we have the F4 on the second map and I wasnt the one who gave the idea.

 Is it a real argument enough?

 

The mission with Ju52 is almost all the time a suicidal mission.

You loose your streak if you suffer a disconnect now? This seems a bit harsh if your computer happens to crash or internet connection drops out (as mine just did).

What makes you think we don't have the right F4 for the battle of Moscow? Some evidence would be great..

The problem is not to have a F-4, but that the one we have has 1.42 ata although that shouldn't be available for Moscow.

Im confused? Why shouldn't it be available? I've never heard of such information, i'm not doubting you but i've just never heard that before, like i said some evidence would be great.
