Thread: Me-163B rocket plane | Forums

    I like it.

    I can't get it off the ground: is that a bug?

    But I can have it airstart in QMB and in new coop missions, and I am having fun with it. It is fun going after bomber streams up at 10K m, with the contrails and so on.

    It is a sweet plane to have fun in. Get in trouble, give it 100 percent throttle and point straight up!

    It's a fun plane to goof around in, but I am VERY GLAD it can't take off from the ground. That keeps it out of multiplayer dogfights. And let's face it--that thing makes even a Ki-84-1c look like a Volkswagen van with a hang-glider duct taped to the roof.

    Well, don't get used to the Me-163 being inoperational EMitton... Oleg and his team will fix it's engine bug with the upcoming patch.

    Still, I think it won't be a big concern, as many servers have already banned the other jets again, so even if she gets fixed now, the Komet won't be causing much trouble.

    If you ask me, it's kind of a loss not to have the jets and rocket planes in most of the DF rooms...

    It is wicked. Got to keep your eye on the fuel on the rockets, though.

    I beleive the original took off on a 4 wheel wooden float of a thing that came off directly after takeoff (look out for your flightmates below ) and you can hear this thing drop off as you begin the mission.

    Where is the fuel gauge on the 163? I can't find it.

    I gather you have 6 minutes of engine run time.

    Check out this page Me163 data click here.

    It's Oleg's latest favorite ride.

    Holy Crap, is this plane fun !!!!

    There is a single mission for this plane
    which is so much fun that I cry out loud
    for an Me-163 campaign !!!

    The first time I flew that mission, I got
    3 B-17 and another 2 P-51 when I gave the
    Bf-109 which shoulda cover my landing a
    helping hand .

    Played this mission several times and never
    runned out of fuel.

    Nothing can beat the feeling when you buzzing
    nearly vertical thru a B-17 box. It's also a
    thrill to be untouchable for the "american
    fighter hordes".

    Energy Management at it's best !!!

    "B-17 ???"

    "Yeah, bring 'em on !"

    I happen to know that a forum regular (not me ) has been beavering away for quite a while on a Me-163 campaign.
    I reckon it's going to be a blast! (Excuse the pun )
