Macchi MC 202 Folgore VII s MP dogfight

Recommended Posts

After last update 5.005 it's now flyble much more the beginning.

 

IMHO this is the list of esthetic things that could be refined:

 

1-Gear down advisory lights are few brighting;

 

2-Altitude thousands needle too;

 

3-even Televel fuel sign is few visible;

 

4-no emergency firing sight, to use in case of broken San Giorgio;

 

5-option to let down the 2 wings' machine guns (as many pilots used to do);

 

6-7,7 mm guns's sound is too similar at 12,7 mm.

 

This is my first MP dogfight

At 9:09 my omage to Maestro Ennio Morricone R.i.p.

Pick the Series III then. The only difference between III and VII ingame is the armament.

Why someone would like to do that?

The more bullets in the air, the better.

Series VII also has pilot armor.

Italian pilots during WWII used to put away 7,7 because they were ineffective... they have only ball bullets, not piercing or explosive ones. So they prefer a higher manuverability than more bullets.

I'm usually the "less is more" kinda guy who prefers a reduced takeoff weight over more firepower but with the Macchi I feel like every little bit helps and even the 7.7mm MGs can start an engine fire or shoot out controls. The two 12.7mm Bredas on their own leave a lot to be desired. Besides the two machine guns do not add a lot of weight and drag as they are fitted almost flush with the wings leading edge. Only a tiny bit of the gun barrel sticks out.

In CloD there's a number of projectiles to choose from:

Ball, AP, I, APT, API

Thanks for the lesson how to use the sim, but this is not what I'm referring about my 5 point.

 

I'm referring to the chance to have an option to leave the couple of 7,7 at home base, transforming a vii serie to a iii serie.

 

I don't ask a logical solution, but the chance to simulate, with historical accuracy, the 7 serie and related matters.

 

If this is not possible, no problem anymore.

 

Thanks for attention.

 

Ciao

Is this doable and without too much of an upset to the existing program, and could it be implemented in a later patch?
