Missing Plane set Eastern Front 1941-43

Recommended Posts

Ah... Joseph Fritzl. There's just something about Austrians with moustaches and a steely gaze, ain't there?

Well, I love the 86's looks. And with the Turbodiesels it has got to be awesome. In a way it's Design Perfection.

 

Edit: Fixed the 86, made it a bit scarier.

You mean a bit more glorious.

Well, I believe a World without Maggie T is better off, than the World Dame Maggie Smith will leave behind. She is probably one of my favourite People out there, together maybe with Sir Patrick Steward, Bud Spencer and Terence Hill, and Eric "Winkle" Brown and my Little Sister. 

 

I started watching her Old Films after going through Downton Abbey, and she is amazing in the Aristocratic Roles. She has great Comedic Timing.

The only time (THE only time) I agreed with what she said was her  "the state should be your servant not your master" quote. No doubt a bit of rhetoric but still.

Sir Patrick Steward

 

He is just far too much of a luvvie!

 

What about "The Bat?"

Or even the Beriev Be-2 to pick up those pilots who ditch in the sea.

The P40k would be nice too.

Carrying bombs would be more easy and some were used in Kuban area in 7th IAP (and maybe in 62d IAP too).

But they were P40k-10 with the long tail, need a motorisation and a model change. 

We'll probably not see them in this game. :sorry:

I guess a Pe3 would be a fast addition with some modifications  :)

I'd enjoy that. You could hide the Pe-3 among the Pe-2s it's escorting! :ph34r:

Which Allison variant did the P-40K have?

 

The Alisson 1710-73 of 1325 hp, that' s make the P40K one of the fastest P40, under 6000m, P40F and N were faster above this altitude.

Yeah would love to see the Su 2 (especial the M-82)

 

It can also be used as a ... not so good fighter with its 4x ShKAS MG's

So I guess it would have similar manual limits as the  -63 in the P-39L? (15 minutes at 45" and 5 minutes at 51"). With those more relaxed limits, and automatic manifold pressure regulator (which I guess it had) it would be a very good improvement over the E. Did it have the Curtiss electric propeller or it was an hydraulic one, for a faster reaction to mantain the RPMs.

For the limitations of the 1710-73 (F4R) I find this:

From the Handbook of Operation and Maintenance for Allison V-1710 "F" Type Engine.

 

 

All F4R got a manifold pressure regulator same as F20R (P51A)

I would definitely pay for a Dornier Do 17Z-2 bomber,other than that,I'd also fork out for a Hurricane,these two iconic aircraft are woefully missing from our Eastern Front 1941-43 aircraft set.

By the way, a quick question. Is the I16 the same as I15 but with a single pair of wings? I mean, is it possible to modify the I16 plane we already have and with two pairs of wings and some other minor modifications create the I15?  :huh:

Awesome Idea, would really lessen the Devs Workload. I think the P-36 should be made as a Mod of the P-40. It's basically just a tiny Engine Mod and then we can have Finland.

Far from it, and even if it was, replacing the wings of an aircraft with completely different ones essentially means building an entirely new FM for it.

 

Although they share much the same shape of the fuselage and are powered by different versions of the same engine, the I-15 and the I-16 are completely separate designs.

You are funny. It's obvious they are just small variances of one another. Look at it, they look the same, like Bats and Birds. As a believing Creationist Chritian they are absolutely the same because they look vaguely similar.

They both are beautiful though :)

 

I certainly wouldn't mind an I-153 and a finished Odessa map.

The funny thing is, that in this case common design actually does indicate a common designer ;)

But are you comparing I16 to I15 or to I153? Make up your mind man!

The I-153 is just a slightly modified version of the I-15. That’s MICRO-evolution man! Now an I-15 crawling out of the mud, losing a set of wings and growing a new landing gear, that’s MACRO-evolution, which is clearly impossible.

Were you there? Were you there? You are just interpreting your Evidence differently than I do. 

 

Have you ever observed a Biplane becoming a Monoplane? I believe in a World View that's different and gives life more Value. I believe that Monoplanes become Biplanes, here are my Examples.

I mean old Planes were just better and we are regressing because the Wright Brothers are disapproving of Men wearing Prada Handbags. Just look at it, 100 Year old Planes managed to live 100 Years, but 20 Year old Planes, well, the proof is right there, they only lived 20 years.

I-153 was used in all battles, if i not mistaken, i.e. in BOM, BOS and BOK, and it is interesting little fighter-bomber (and just first biplane in game)

but we already have similar type, i.e. I-16 type 24/28

and we don't have blue analog
 
plus we don't have blue fighters except Fw 190 A-6 etc

so, looks like that if we talks about exactly new fighters, it is must be - IAR or C.200 (or even something finnish) + Hurricane or, for example, Mustang Mk 1

I’d love a Hs 123/I-153/CR.42 combo package :biggrin:

The I-153 is a later design than the I-16 actually.

 

The I-15 is older than either of them, and is substantially different from the I-153 or I-16.

We know. In case you didn’t notice, Klaus and I were parodying creationist arguments.

I seem to recall forum rules here frowning on that sort of behavior.

Oh yes! That was an epic thread.

 

I've spent a considerable amount of time flying aircraft that were considered "crap" or just far earlier than the other aircraft being flown about.

 

I remember flew on one of those air quake servers flying I-153s or Cr42s against La-7s and Bf109Ks. That was hilarious. And I got some good kills too!

Ah and i am not sure if it was already mentioned but one of the most incredible planes i really want, are the finnish F2A Buffalos.
