the LW used almost 80 % the FW-190 D-9. The rest were Ta-152. The russians relied on the much feared LaGG-3 and the high interceptor I-16. Are you making a historical server? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Edit: sorry, just saw you are new. First, welcome and then on the question : The LW used Me109 G-10, G-14, K-4 variants and FW-190 A-8/A-9 and D-9, the latter is with inline engine. On the russian Side you will find Yak-3, Yak-9U and La-7

hi, http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

i used to play Aces High

Fw-190A-8 seems/feels slow there (especially @ deck)

How come the 190A-8 now feels a bit faster here? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif does IL-2 190A-8 use different engine? (sry, just curious)

with the exception of maybe two dozen people who are never pleased, the general consensus seems to be that IL-2 is as realistic and historical as you can get without spending ten grand on your software.

the A8 historically was a quick plane. Not the fastest, but very fast nontheless. And with the 108 gunpods, its a beast.

well you are asking the wrong person... I'm just a mediocre simmer http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif and besides IL-2 I've only played Janes Fighters back then... I will be only guessing but it might be the optimistically modelled performance sported by ally birdies or the undermodelled Axis fighter. And once more, welcome to IL-2 Forgotten Battles : Pacific fighters v4.01 Universe. Enjoy the hitchhiking http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
