What are your feelings on the trajectory of the weapons in game? Just would like to read today others thoughts. I feel it is lacking especially in cannons. Some of the long range shots I have takin and delivered are not possible IMHO.

Got data?

I think the trajectory of the shells is just fine. The problem is there are aerodynamic forces that are not taken into account, or modeled shorthand in dispersion. The bullet path is more predictable than IRL.

I don't know about R/L, but there is a huge difference in loft between different planes in this sim.

Try a Yak9T to a P39Q10. Both 37mm, but far less likely to get a hit in the cobra.

LaGG3-IT is a different canon with better rate of fire. That is like comparing the Stukas G1 canons with the il2-3m 37mm canons. No wonder you hit better with the LaGG, since the M4 speed is 140rpm, against 250rpm. And also the muzzle velocity is 610m/s against 900m/s.

Balistics are far better in the LaGG.

Check this:


There are other places with similar info.

some guns have lots of recoil, others dont.

czech out the il2's, the 23mm cannon shakes the plane LESS than the 7mm guns http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
