Can anybody notice any difference in performance between the A8 in version 1.1 and the A4 in the original? If no, is there a patch coming out?

Thanks.

What game are you playing? FB or IL2? If IL2, what is the latest patch you have? And finally, what exactly are you asking?

Il-2, 1.1, does anybody else notice that there appears to be no difference between the performance of the A4 and the A8.

Thanks

the current patch for the original il2 is version 1.2

note do NOT update to 1.2ov you need plain 1.2

Download patch 1.2 and yes there is a BIG difference between the two. The A4 is armed with 2x7.9mm MG17's, 2x20mm MG151 (high velocity cannon) and 2x20mm MGFF's (low velocity cannon). The A8 is armed with 2x13mm MG131's (heavy machineguns) and 4x20mm MG151 (high velocity cannons). As far as handling charicteristics and speed, the A4 turns better but the A8 is around 60km/h faster at sea level.

Few of us fly Il2 anymore, Gary.

Quite a difference in FB though.
No "erhohte Notleistung" in A4 in FB. A8 has lots of power and speed. Both suffer from a lack of pitch authority.

And both have dysfunctional Kommandogerat.
Wait for the patch. (ho hum.Yawn.Waiting.)
S!

Thank you all for your help. I think I'll get FB from what I read here.


Thanks again.
