  1. JOKKR, take a bow you were top dog for the night. >S<
  2. A Friday Night Flight memory from Oct, 14, 2019
  3. I'll get with Moostafa and see if we can't come up with a "Supply Flight" Merit award. We'll just have to get an idea of how to get the credits, for JU52, automatically like the stats page we run now. But you do have a good idea. >S<

    you'll need to get Bodenplotte from IL2 though. A lot of maps are running the newest plane sets from there. https://il2sturmovik.com/store/battle-of-bodenplatte/

    Get at least Stalingrad from Steam. That will be the primary account. You'll get Steam Downloader for future updates. Then get the rest from either one, whoever has the best pricing when you're ready. You can always look here and see what you are missing and the current pricing on steam https://store.steampowered.com/search/?term=il2 Good to see you back Viper/Ginger >S<
  8. >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<
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
