Hi Guys,

 

Very good DD!! In contrast to what i expected i like the looks of the Yak-7. It looks bulky and sturdy. And the fact that are going to backtrack to fix existing assets on the Moscow map shows dedicating and loyalty to the customer base. 

 

Good work!

 

Thnx

Awesome update. Are you going to implement independent mirror view for each eye in vr?

Is IL-2: BoK going to be the last batch of aircraft for the eastern front or can we expect one or two more premiums before the  pacific theatre?

Shoot, I totally forgot what day it was!

That's great news about the optimised airfields.  I had a pretty severe fps hit on them and was wondering if it was just me.

Nope, BoM especially suffered in this.

 

Great news indeed!

Very very excited about the Tacview implementation. I feel that's the hidden star of the DD this time. Maybe with this tool people can properly analyze their engagements in the future, which will dispel some weird myths about the performance of planes in the game. As an avid DCS guy one cannot understate the value and importance of proper analysis when it comes to "Why did I lose this engagement? :'("

The P 40 had a mirror too, I hope they add it to the sim.

Really happy to have a first look at the Yak-7B! Thanks for the update.

 

Though I haven't really had any performance loss over Moscow airfields, I'm sure the improvement will be a welcome one for many. The mirrors sound great!

I think rear mirrors are totally superfluous  :excl:  :excl:  :excl:

 

We could use those expensive developing hours on much need mods for the planes available.

 

I would easily trade my 111 rear mirrors for turrets. More fun for players, no performance hit or endeless bugs which will consume more devs hours to solve it.

Considering AI gunners don't warn you in any helpful way or even on time, I wish I could replace them with mirrors

Jason said, shortly after the BoK announcement, they would like to do a 109 G-6 and an La-5FN. There is no timeline and no guarantee but they know the community wants them. If they are ahead of schedule and there is time they will. The team, however, is on an extremely tight budget for both time and money. If it can't be done within those parameters it simply won't happen. They cannot extend any timelines to accommodate two premium aircraft before moving to the Pacific.

Awesome!

 

Mirrors will be interesting, and the airfield optimization is always welcome.

 

With the long cockpit the yak looks like the soccer mom van of all fighters. :)

I got more of an impression that they're working on them, not finished yet.

Your pain, I feel.

I've just made an online flight and record a track and when I've wanted to share it with my friend I saw the ACMI file in the folder  :biggrin:

Amazing ! It's already working even if it's missing some stuff ! that will be a great addition when it's gonna be fully implemented  :)

If I remember correctly from what i did read in Yakovlev memories (a long time ago and in French) the Yak7 fighter was a development extracted from the Yak 7 UTI two seater trainer with at first little changes then when the series did progress more and more so as to have a pure fighter but still with light armament.

I say thanks to the development team that tries and succeed in improving the game, making it more complex but not hungrier for machine power, thanks!  :salute:

Any word on whether there are plans for a bubble canopy Yak-7? It is my favourite Yak. :)
