This is part two of my Corsair views. RL pics are of a F4U-5.

These pics are so cool!

Nice similarity and a great comparison of the view you get in Pacific Fighters Corsairs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Any chance you know which model of Corsair that was? From that cockpit I'm going to guess it's a later version of the F4U-4 because it's slightly flattened at the top of the canopy. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

EDIT: Whoops, just noticed your other pics, it's an F4U-5, way cool! Again, great comparison shots between Pacific Fighters and Real Life. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

F4U-5 has bulletproof glass in front: models we have don't.. that's where you get the major difference

Is it just me or does the real one have a 4 blade prop? The one in the sim is only showing 3 blades.

The Corsairs in the game, F4U-1 series, all had 3-bladed props. The F4U-4 and later had 4-bladed props.

Thanks skychimp. So are these models a good comparison to each other? Are the views different in the 4 series in game?

Great pics. We gotta give Oleg credit this time, the in-game views are spot on with the RL views!

hi,
indeed there is a progress in view design more to real things.
Anyway, most of the forward view in camera view system to rest of fighters is a so called
'gnomish pilot's view' http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
even to FW-190 and 90 % of cockpit forward view and of cousre to left and right view.
in general the hight of pilot's view is too low in the running normal view, even in combat view.

this need also also a fix to higher mounted revi/gyroscope in some cases... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

old problems since IL-2 first design
