223
Hello everybody,

The Spring ends soon, and we're preparing the next update for you. In the next 2-3 weeks, we plan to finish the testing of the new game version, which has started already - this week we started the beta testing of Flying Circus S.E.5a and Albatros D.5a and today we add T-34 UVZ mod. 1943 from Tank Crew project to it. And the next week the beta testing of the long-awaited Me 262 A for Battle of Bodenplatte will begin.

For Bodenplatte we also have the Summer US pilot ready, German and British pilots will receive their summer outfits soon. We can show you the US one today:

5!!

 

For instance, if you remove the nose gun armor and two guns, it becomes so tail heavy with full tanks that it is dangerous to fly. 

 

Finally some real aviation limitations :ph34r:

Good choice about the 262 engine.

The B-1 was the main production model anyway (*), the B-0 was used mostly on prototypes, the B-2 didn't leave the development stage much and whether B-3s ever saw the light of day would have to be discussed.

I hope though that the throttle movement stay a critical factor because it wasn't all that much improved on the B-1, just when RPMs went up you were allowed to move the throttle slightly faster.

I might be wrong but I just read an article about the 262 and it said that, you had to remove the top two mk108s to be able to carry bombs, in the Pic shown above you can see all 4 fire and also bombs are carried.

 

 

Just saying

You are indeed wrong. KG 51 was using 262s with all 4 cannons along with bombs fitted. What they were doing in those cases was removing the nose armor to compensate.

Of course, this feature is linked to another - the possibility of field repair. It is also being worked on and most of it will be usable for aircraft as well.

Sure thing. :) Unfortunately, sometimes bad info is repeated for many years before new research comes and corrects old mistakes.

Excellent News about the 262:

 

Quote

- EZ 42 gyro gunsight with automatic deflection calculation,
- R4M unguided air-to-air rockets, 12 per mounting,
- Armored pilot headrest,
- Pilot back armor,
- Removal of the gun mounting armor for making the aircraft less nose-heavy,
- Removal of two Mk 108 guns,
- Bomber variant capable of carrying two SC 250 or one SC 500 bombs. 

 

I love that skin of Heinz Baers Red 13. Great! Can´t wait until mid june.

Stunning news as always!

 

The possibilities for the tanks (and later for the planes) sounds extremely exciting! With the Albatros and S.E.5. you did a great job and just like the Me 262 I can't wait to fly them.

The American summer uniform looks good. I'm curious what the Royal Airforce pilots will look like. I hope that sometime in the future the Russian and German uniforms will be brought to the new standard.

 

Thanks for your hard work Il-2 Team

 

best regards Rico!

Have a very important question: will you have to combat infantry in the future, even in "tank crew"? Without infantry much was lacking in the autheticity !!!!!
