I know it was said that no FM changes were done... but it seems that the P-51 has changed for the better. I dont know.. I had to uninstall and reinstall FB to install Pe-2.... maybe thats it.. but it seems to be a tad more ballsy... and less twitchy..... I also notice that the gun effects on all the planes seem to be better....

The Pe-2 is a beaut.... overall I like it and think it was worth the $$ spent...

Last two day's I've been flying online with the Pe-2/3, and I've got say: What great aircraft http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I'm shocked you can DF with them, let alone survive the encounter.

I haven't seen any changes to any planes FM's or DM's.

I think its a placebo effect bearcat.

Being a long-time VVS fan, I am really happy with the Peshka - the 1 BIG ommission from Il-2 up to now. I adapted a dive bombing practice mission with a couple of ships cruising about the Black Sea. Great to have a dive bomber where you can actually look thru the underside of the a/c and have a decent field of vision.

The plane's notorious landing characteristics are well modelled as well and my Peshka's have been merrily bouncing off the runways all over the Eastern Front.

Good stuff!

Maybe.. either that or the fact that I had to reinstall the sim changed something in my settings.. in any case.. it seems different...

re: landing characteristics, I love what they're doing now with the new aircraft. The Mosquito was a revelation - it's a really hard aircraft to taxi, let alone land - requiring careful use of power and speed to avoid slamming down and snapping the undercarriage. It actually FEELS heavy, unlike the previous "heavies" in game.

Pe-2 similarly interesting!

Everytime I reinstall things turn out different with this game! Just having a few minor differences in the control setup seems to have a huge impact...and I can never seem to get a control setup i'm happy with. For one plane it might work great, for another, utter rubbish, then I change it every time I reinstall cause I forget to take a backup of the conf.ini. oops. I really hope in BoB you can tailor your control setup for each plane individually, or even have plane profiles for multiple setups for the same plane. That would make my day.

I heart the new ground objects. I do.

Yeah, the landings are a bit fraught, it must be said. The right wing just drops away so suddenly below a certain -as yet to be determined by me - speed. I really like this plane though. Anyone else think it looks like an A-10, especially when you come scooting in low over the hills witha big shark's mouth on the nose. I love it. Really nice visibilty, too. I'm going to have to try out the 110 again, too. I can see big changes to my flying habits, thanks to this add-on. Twin engines is new best!

Very happy here too.

One thing I dislike however is those ghastly retro FB version 1.0 skins they packaged with it. Bleh! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

All things considered, quite a bargain. I look forward to my next purchase ASAP!

I think a re-install of the game is pretty healthy.


One thing I enjoyed about 4.05 was that coop w/ your squad last night BC, but I'm not sure of the wisdom of carrier ops in a thunderstorm.

To be honest I don't really fly russian planes

I only bought it to help Oleg's cause and for the fact that I must own it to apply the other addons

I think the Pe-2/3 series is a lot of fun. I bought the addon more to keep up with the series but I have to admit I've been having a blast with the new plane. I'm not a huge bomber fan so I don't know how long my interest in the Pe-2 will last but its fun for now.

The Pe-3 is a lot of fun for me. Its big, its undergunned, and it lacks substantial pilot armour but for some reason I can't stop busting in to large formations of 109s and 190s and having a go at it. I usually come falling down in flames but its one intense fight.

I find the Pe3 to be the plane I thought the Mossie would have been...does that make sense?

Don't get me wrong - it's a great add-on and I'm loving it. Great to see some positive comments now the bru-ha-ha has died down.

I love the bomb sight its so simple I can frag a womprat at 2000 meters with this baby and the tie fighters don't know what hit em.

Peshka - just like ronseal it does exactly what it says on the tin http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

You must keep ur speed up in the PE2 otherwise you will stall on approach. Very nice feature.

Visibility in the plane is great, nobody should crash on takeoff, but noobs will always.

Trim switches are sweet. Only thing I dont like are low ammo in tail gunner, and not enough 20mm in PE3, and forward armament in PE2 is weak. But those are historical... makes no sense to me though.

I´ve been chasing Me 110:s and it sure is more fun with Pe3 bis than Mossie.
Did they ever use rockets with Pe:s?
I love the campaign intros.
Dont know about the FM, but after reinstalling (2 times) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif it seems to be better!

I don´t know about possible changes in flight model. I have not flown that much yet with other planes. But the Petlyakov is very nice. I like it. Of course it was worth of the few :s. It was worth of it even if I wouldn´t like the aeroplane itself (for Oleg). But I really like the one!

Have fun,

Flying can be so lonely, even in a B-25 I feel like I'm in a plane inhabited by ghosts. Imagine my delight when I looked over my shoulder in my Pe-2 and saw someone else, someone to talk to...

Groovy plane(s), and I'm always happy to give Oleg a tenner now and then.

I have been enjoying the heck out of it. The Pe-2 is a great AC to fly, and once you get the sight straightened out, a hell of a lot of fun to bomb with as well. Especially since pickling off manually means you can really plug a target! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

While I do know that the FM wasnt supposed to have changed, I have noticed that everthing seems a little tighter, and I have DEFINATELY noticed a change in gunner. Flying my Ki-43C, I have blown the tail assembly off of a Buffalo, and killed a Hurri in just a couple of rounds through the bottom of the AC. That never used to happen! I used to have to practically empty my guns into the Buff before to get em down.
