Why is the reflector glass smaller in the Fw190 compared to the La-5 when the glass was the same width (60mm), yet the seat of the La-5 is further from the gunsight?

Why is there that crossbar that cuts off the bottom third of the gunsight when in the real thing it was nearly invisable? Answer is same as for all other comments and questions, "You is wrong."

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.</center>

And where is the bad glass the sovs were making, how did it end up on the late model 109s?

You is wrong. Soviet pilot must be slouched forward when seating. Be sure!

Because Germans pillaged everything they could. In this case russians were lucky when germans stoled the poor plexiglass they had to take it from those millions early clean-windowed Me's that have been shot down earlier.

I remember the first time I loaded up an FW 190 in the original IL2 when it came out and immediatley thought: "You must be *#%%ing joking!"

Just wait for Oleg's next sim featuring Soviet submarines of the cold war. The periscopes are being modelled to the nearest fraction of a millimeter using real historical documents (which Oleg is not allowed to share).

Can you imagine how great the view is going to be?

BTW, I don't think the problems in this sim are due to pro-Russian bias. It was merely sloppiness, combined with stubborn arrogant developers.

Ever hear of GAME BALANCING? The new feature in UBI Soft sim realm, just wait for LOMAC and you'll see it there too....Fw190 is too much deadly even without correctly scaled REVI.
