I thought that the U3 was unarmed!?

 

Nope, it had a solitary MK108 in the nose.

Sevenless,

 

I stand corrected.  Thanks for that as I didn't realise it was standard on the U3, so I'm always happy to increase my knowledge about these aircraft.

 

Regards

It was not standard on the U3, some carried cameras only and some  carried one 30mm cannon.

Great. A year ago it would be hard to believe such planes will appear in IL2 serie.👍 Now the western front slowly becomes reality.

The underside of the rear fuselage looks a little too angled up to me, but maybe just a result of the perspective.

 

Very excited about all the a/c coming!

I think that angle will change when the aircraft is placed on its undercarriage. When you look at the full size example it exhibits a different rear fuselage "angle" due to tire and undercarriage oleo compression.

It was good for shredding bombers, fast bombing and reconaissance missions as carrried out by NAG 6 with 262A1a/U3.

Yep, but the question is what it will be good for in BoBp. Currently reconnaissance doesn't play a significant role in the game, in BoBp we won't have bombers to shoot at for quite some time, so fast bombing is the only thing that remains. I don't think that turning and repeated attacks are a good idea in such a plane, so "take off, fly fast, drop the eggs in one pass, get the hell out of there, and pray you're not bounced upon landing" is what I expect. Another question is what Scharfi and other Experten can stunt with it in MP.

Hi, thanks for that Information. Can You suggest any sources about them not having  the MK108? Was it a field mod?

 

I found some interesting Infos here:

I think you can very well shred A20s and B25s, and with a little skill (Meow.Scharfi like) can annoy the hell out of fighter pilots with booming and zooming.

Fast bombing and recce are actually very interesting missions. And so much more important to the war-effort than shooting down a fighter a piece at 20000ft.

Alone, unarmed and unafraid.

That's funny because BnZ will be the preferred counter tactic, too, and some BOBP planes can climb higher.

Sure, but I guess pony hunting will be as possible as it was with 1946. See here:

I AM SO READY. 

Is the photo taken at aviation museum Kbely ??? It looks at least very similar to it with this layout

so this will be the best rendition in any flight sim for this aircraft. I was hoping the IL2 boys would do one eventually when they announced BOS all those years ago. It’s finally going to happen.

 

if anyone is interested the 4 volume series by Classic Publications, from authors J Richard Smith and Eddie Creek is very comprehensive.

the 262s service ceiling is about 38000 ft, are you sure there are prop planes that can go higher?

I guess you meant 'climb better' instead of 'climb higher'.

P-47 and P-51 both had service ceilings over 40,000ft.

Then unplayble tank online will be fixed? Why team make P-47, but not fix critical bugs?
