If our figter's would been this good in 41-43 Naziz would not ever get in Soviet union. Here are some fault's that i have noticed after 4 hour test flight whit I16.

1. Acceleration is superb compared to real thing. In real life I16 was very slow to accelerate. in level flight it took a bout 10 minutes to reach 420 km/h. Emils managed to reach this in 3 mins. This was the main reason for heavy losses we had no chance at all against Emils in 41. Because of this many pilots bailed out before fight even started.

2. Shooting. in reality hitting was imposibble longer distance than 350m and only true aces managed to give good hits in 300-400m range. Realistic hitting range was beetween 50-200m.

3. Diving. In real life steep dives were very risky. Engine was almost surtain to over rev. This was very bad thing because we could not follow Emils in to dives.

Overall I16 was very bad plane to fly. Oleg you have very nice game here but it is not realistic. This game mock Soviet pilots because it makes you think that how could our losses be as big as it was in 41.

Agreed with all the points except number two. I found that the 50 meters to 200 meters is definately my optimum firing range and I can't kill much past that unless its unlimited ammo and I'm spraying the sky full of bullets.

As far as i know many many VVS planes have been destroyed during attacks at the airfields close to the borders.

You use version 1.1 Final for your tests?

My squad flying for OKL in VEF,VOW.It's also rare to see me in a VVS plane (exept P-39,40,47).

If FB is more a game than a sim would you please name a real sim?Or better a game closer to reality than IL2/FB?

/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif Late I~16 was competitive with 109 Email. Soviet training, tactics, and deployment were not.

Of course no FB simmer "sims" a newly trained fighter pilot or "sims" being ordered to fly with inferior tactics. You can see why.....

Just thinking, if the real Luftwaffe aircrew were anything like the FB arcade whiners here, the Polish Air Force would have shot them all down, saving Europe alot of trouble.

LEXX_Luthor. I have flown 12 combat missions in Smolensk 1941. I Know what i talk. I did not come here complain or start a fight. My grand son asked me to tell all of you what i think about it. I don't have the time or health anymore.

Can we keep these Game V Simulation discussions in General Discussion, they have no place in ORR
