Am I the only one who noticed this google video?
Check out the rear ward view...that head protector doesnt interfere with the rear view like it does in the game.

It seems like the Rata from Spanish civil war.... those were perhaps earlier I-16 versions, nevertheless I doubt that there was some major (if any) differences between them regarding visual appearance.
So............they need to put the taller dude in teh cockpit next time.....the one who actually sits and looks thru gunsite at the same time....

This video was made by TUCKIE, a well known and dedicated member of my association (Aviadores Virtuales Asociados). He is an expert in the Spanish Civil War, and he is actually in charge of the SCW project: http://scw.aviadoresvirtuales.org/

The objective of the video was making a report of an early I-16 size 1:1 model being built at La Senia, a town not far from Barcelona, Spain, where we live.

Although dimensions of the model are right 100% acording to the documents found, perspective from the camera might not necessary correspond with that of the pilot in flight (goggles, parachute, seatbelts, etc).

As far as I know, general visibility is excelent from the Mosca (no more despective Rata moniquet please) and the maximum visibility angle just reaches the tips of the horizontal stabilizers.

If you want to address the autor of this video directly, he can be reached at our forums:

Do not be intimidated by the language barrier, you can write in English.

In all types one could se well past the fin when looking back, aswell as below the tail to some extent, so vis was really good to the rear.



I like it and often prefer it even if the opposition would consist of 109G2's.
Possibilities to RTB are minimal but when one succeeeds one really grins happily.

Regarding the I-16 one Unfortunately loses lots of energy searching the rear in I-16 in the sim but I found that lazy descending turns provide ok vis and leave best possible power balance to be able to efficiently take on atleast average 109 pilots.
109 experts tend to use their speed-advantage to the fullest and speed away after attacks and attempt to drag pursuers to give the next 109 in line a good opportunity to swoop down for an easy kill.

Seen lots of novices lose their virtual life trying to give chase with several 109's circling overhead.
Perhaps that type of thing happened to real people back then.
