The P-51 has about TWICE the detail of other cockpits. Most cockpits are around 2500 poly's. The P-51 has nearly 6000!!!! Great stuff.

I hope the collision model is improved someday--it would come in handy if you ever wanted to reproduce the method used many RAF pilots to down V1s. Often, the pilot would fly besides the Buzzbomb and tip it over with their wing. Try this in FB now and you'll shear off your wing. An improved collision model would also make tarans more of an option, a tactic first used by VVS pilots and later used by specially armored FW-190s against U.S. bombers.

I've also read about some U.S. fighter pilots playfully tipping their comrade's wing on the way home. Not something I would want to do in real life, but then some of these kids were only around 19, and I guess I was sort of a ******* at that age too.

Yeah the cockpit does look nice! Too bad we're still modeled as 10 year old kids peering over the instrument panel. Come on! are you telling me the pilot sitting in his Mustang could not see his engine cowling?

God I hope the graphics engine in the new sim let's them cure the clipping problem that forces them to do this.

A nice article on the show from 69.Giap (http://www.baseclass.modulweb.dk/giap/index.php/giap/content/view/full/833).

He's right about the sandwiches, you know. Damage effect was WAY overmodelled.

The wing tipping technique didn't involve physical contact. By positioning the fighters wing under the V1's the air pressure destabilised the bomb and uspet the gyro, sending it down. The idea wasn't to physically nudge the bomb off course by whacking it with your wing but to get airflow to do it for you.

SWEETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT TTTTTTTTTT


The free add-on will be available in the next two weeks as a download from the UBI site.(details on site).

The other two add-ons, or should I say expansions will be available on disk from December/January, these are not free. They will feature more flyable aircraft from England, Germany, Italy, Japan and the USA and include more maps covering Western Europe and Islands in the Pacific, although no mention was made about the inclusion of aircraft carriers. From what was said today the expansions will be the last in the IL-2 series of combat flight Sims.

With the time it is taking to get the Bf-110 flyable I can't imagine that the B-17 would be practical given the fairly limited time Oleg will be supporting FB.

I'd sooner see a flyable Bf-110 than a B-17 (not that I'll complain if the latter eventually appears).
