  3. >S< I'm speaking of the 262 here. She's a sexy beast and if we were to fly it right no one is going to touch it with the exception of the laser locked AI tail gunners. I flew it on single player mission as an air start and killed an A20 and a PE2 and only took a single plink from the PE2. Both aircraft were wing off deaths. The unfortunate part of the 262 is the ammo loadout. It's light, Real light, I'm talkin' 8 seconds light if that. After the A20 and PE2 there are ground targets. I hit the convoy and got one truck and I was out of ammo. If you haven'e seen the Air Combat Tutorial youtube account on the 262 you need to see it before you even try to get one in a server. I kept overheating engine 1 while starting engine 2. And for those of you that fung schwayed your keymapper and can't start multiple engines on a single stroke of the E key you're Shit out of luck. There is a lot of little things to do during the startup process. I have to figure out how I can reset my igniter buttons for each engine to get them fired at certain timing during the start. She's a slug on the bottom while landing and taking off but, once she's moving she really moves. You will also need to setup your elevator and rudder trims to keep her in level flight. She's touchy to the elevator change and if you change 10Km/H you'll be changing the elevator trim to keep up. With the turbine at 8400 RPM I was able to get 682Km/H in level flight with trims alone. Again watch the Air Combat tutorial guide before attempting to start one on the ground. >S<
  4. They called it the Great Crusade (Operation Overlord). My Grandfather called it the day he lost a brother to the madness of mankind. My Grandfather Donald with the grace of God waded ashore on the beaches of Normandy at Utah Beach. He was an engineer. My grandfather was awarded a Purple heart for his wounds sustained in the leg while clearing an obstacle. His brother Ora was in the landings on Omaha beach. He made it to the bluffs before succumbing to wounds. He is buried in France. My Grandfather was again wounded later in April 1945. He returned home to a 196 square foot house where my Grandmother, mother, and aunt awaited him. It was located 280 miles north of Detroit (Were he was released from active duty). While hitchhiking home my Great Uncle just happened to be driving from Bay City and saw him on the road. A ride for the final last 100 miles going home. He never really had much in the way of possessions, and what he had he gladly shared with others. He was appointed the Postmaster of his small town (at the time pop:480), Along with the postmasters position the U.S. Government built him a home for his service on a small loan guarantee. As new people moved in to town they were always invited to dinner. It might have been venison, Fresh trout, or a recently butchered hog from my Great grandfathers farm. You never knew what was for dinner but it was always enough to feed more than those that sat at his table. He knew everybody and I do mean everybody and everybody knew him. When he retired from the Postal Service the towns population was 2400. Everybody knew him. Nobody ever said a bad thing about my Grandfather. He passed away in 1991 and I miss him to this day. He's my hero and I try to be more like him every day.
  5. If you bail out of an aircraft you also will not lose a life. It's only when you die in the cockpit or are killed in your chute. Last map I had 1 death early with 4 ditched or crashed and 2 bail outs the rest of the map and was still at 3 lives near the end of the map. CAP engage and run if you get any damage and you'll be fine.
  6. I have been flying on the TAW server with OGG and Djuroslav for the last two weeks and even with the new ruleset I really have not noticed any difference other than I am not flying any ground attack missions. The main reason why is that we are usually outnumbered and it would be to dangerous for little gain. It has been a lot of fun with some really whit knuckle moments. I would really like to see use try flying on this server on a Friday.
  7. Version 4.3.0 was released on May 26th 2019.

  13. I'm over to this spot.... I registered with the site mentioned. Mingus is migrating me....
  14. Good builds everyone. For those of you who do not want to build your own I bought a pre-built gaming computer from best buy. Got it for $1199 https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cyberpowerpc-gamer-master-gaming-desktop-amd-ryzen-7-series-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2070-2tb-hdd-240gb-ssd-white/6315148.p?skuId=6315148 It goes on sale often and has some good stuff in it. The only thing I had to add was a better CPU cooler the one they put in it was crap. Runs real strong.
  15. I did some math with the help of the TAW stats pages. The top 5 fighters all have more than 20 hours in the game since the server started on Sunday. That was 89 hours ago. The time played by those players equates to more than 7 hours a day in flight on the server. One player had what equated to more than 8 hours per day on the server. These are professional gamer times being mustered up here. They are playing what is damn near a full time job. And TAW wants to punish us for having a life outside the game. For those of you with acess to their forums I ask you go read my last post on page 338 and you'll see the frustration that is seen by everyone that posts about problems. It's a good read. >S< Ogg
  16. The Hs129B-2, is an extremely interesting aircraft with many features. It is equipped with French production air-cooled engines Gnome-Rhone 14M, with automatically adjustable oil coolers and a constant speed screw (2750 rpm) with the possibility of manual direct control of the pitch of the screw and the mode of feathering. The airplane is equipped with flaps with a hydraulic smooth extending system, which includes a special metering cylinder for extending flaps right to intermediate take-off position. In the cockpit, there is a folding armored seat for easy getting in the aircraft. The instruments for monitoring engine parameters are installed directly on engine cowls, outside the cabin. Front-firing weapons of the aircraft are installed in the central part of the fuselage, behind the cockpit, and fire through special channels along the sides of the cabin. Despite the tightness, the configuration of the cockpit canopy provides the pilot with excellent front-to-bottom visibility, which is extremely important for the attack aircraft. Collimator sight is installed very unusually - outside the canopy, in front of the armored windscreen, which is also unusual in itself because it has a curved shape with a multilayer structure. The "Revi C/12D mit Zieleinrichtung" gun sight is equipped with a special mechanical sighting device for level bombing at fixed altitudes and speeds; How to use it in detail is shown in the images below.
