I came home from work during my lunch break just to try it out. Got 3 I-16's and a TB-3 in one (and only) mission. Was rtb with base in sight when the map changed to Italy '43 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

Agreed.

I was just leaving when you came in.

Bagged some Polikarpovs, and used the Nate for some ground pounding as well. It's amazing what an accurately placed pair of 25kg. bombs can do.

It's a great little plane.

I may need a new sig pic.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

So how is the iron hard I-153/I-16 damage model holding up against the Japanese light machine guns? This has been my biggest concern for a while now.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

*Back at work now*

I didn't encounter any I-153's but I found the human I-16's a bit easier than the ace QMB ones i've been practicing against. You can get them so rattled with a few good hits that they crash through error, rather than battle damage. Something the unflappable AI never does. Interesting that Oleg promises fear as a feature of Bob AI...

With the TB3, my first pass was a beam attack with a zoom and follow up from a high six position. I was able to walk the bullet stream up the length of the fuselage, and distinctly saw the bullets entering the backs of the pilot and co-pilot.

Sadly, that one time was the only occaision I found the Ki-27 on one of the full-switch servers http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif.

The Shiden Kai seems to be getting quite a workout, but the Nate is nowhere to be seen. Do fixed undercarriages cause too much lag or something?

I see it all the time.

"Those early war planes ar too slow."

"The map is too big for those slow planes."

"etc...etc... whine..whine..."

Translation: I need 1500+ BHP to compensate for my poor skills. And I need a 30mm cannon cause those "pea shooters" don't kill with my poor aim. blah blah blah...

I think that about covers it.

Sadly.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Early war is where the fun is. This FR server admins need to realize that. Several of them started out with early to mid war stuff and were always packed with pilots. And then you get a couple uber war whiners in their forums and all of the sudden the early war maps start to be few and far between. This and this alone is why several of these servers have become vacant.

Wise up fellas and bring back the fun and actual WW2 tactics that work as they should. Early-mid is where its at.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Thanks for the agreement HaVoK.

The early mid planesets are by far the most balanced. Either side has a fairly equal chance, unlike late war, especialy in the Pacific, where the more advanced Allied types can simply dominate.

I would much rather have a hard fought engagement, win or lose, than a quick bounce kill from the stratosphere.

Kinda makes me wonder how many folks will actually purchase Gennadich's WW1 sim. I know I will.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
