real gun camera footage of ground attacks seem to be in slow motion as compared to trying to zero in on a tank in
this sim. is the speed not realistic or did the pilots in real life slow down to make it easier to aim?

The apparent difference is in part due to FOV differences. Straffing runs in Zoom view look much more like the gun cam footage than in Normal or Wide view.

and I bet they steadied the plane more easily than we can with the aid of trim.

When you go oscillating, it also adds to the sense of speed.

I have noticed that even though the view is quite restricted zoom view sees to be the on that gets the most approximation to real flying....IMHO of course.. Try landing in zoom view....it's hard because you vcan only see what your monitor will allow...but look at the perspective interms of actual sizes and it seems dead on to me.....

Some time ago [back in the IL2 days, I think] there was a very detailed comparison done between what gets drawn on screen and the 'real' size of actual aircraft at the measured distances.

"zoom" FOV was shown to be almost exactly accurate down to a very fine level. When you use Zoom view, you are more or less seeing what you would actually see if the object you're looking at was at the distance shown in game. That is of course taking out factors like different monitor sizes, draw distance level, etc.

Note that this does not hold for ground targets, almost all of which are a good 20 to 30% smaller than they were in real life.

That a 'ground attack' sim has mis-sized ground objects to such a degree through two full priced sims and 5 main patches is .. well .. pretty funny when you think about it :>

Very true. Its funny watching a tank destroyer only take up 1 out of the two tire tracks on those dirt roads /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif .

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>
