I'd like to see some of that stuff in Oleg's SoW...
So there would be no more ridiculous vertical +700kph dives and full trim up actions http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif .

Tell me you're not referring to the trick where you crouch, take 10 deep breaths and then have someone pressure you against the wall until you black out?

Coz if you do..we did it aswell!

May the gods of sims listen to this prayer!

The most shocking thing is not only to see people doing such maneuvers in IL2, but the fact that right after them (less than 1 sec or 2)they are again fully in possession of their sight, concentration, and aggressity, to aim for an accurate shot or to dodge one more time using the same kind of maneuver... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

This is far more unrealistic than any DM of FM "errors" in the game.

I too do hope that there will be some physical penalty in the next sim, like sustained blurred vision and fatigue for instance.
That would be very nice, anyway there is nothing bad in dreaming, isn't it?

I doubt that WWII fighter aircraft going 700 KM an hour could pull and sustain 9G's. No fly by wire, No massive thrust to keep the speed envelope high.

I would imagine that say a P-38 screaming down would have the pilot pulling on the stick with all he has and probably would still only be pulling 7G Cause the faster you go the harder it is to pull out!

I like how Steve just nods "Yeah, whatever" as the pilot is explaining the Immelmann . . .



I was laughing too. Yeah, I was thinking, 'Dudes going to choke on his gum'. I wouldn't chew gum either . . .

But didn't a few WW2 fighter pilots smoke cigars AND have oxygen masks (Pappy Boyington?)

so I guess if you can survive with it . . .

I dunno about the cigars but I remember reading an account where one US pilot would press his veins in the neck to prevent blood from leaving the head during hard manouvers. According to him that kept him councious for longer. Another report was the guy who was turning really hard with a 109 and needed more power but he couldnt reach the throttle with his left hand (that for some reason left the lever) and due to the violent G manouvers his hand was too heavy to lift so he couldnt get that extra power to turn with 109 unless he eased off on the Gs but the he would also lose the turnfight... That tells u some of the stress these guys had to go trough....
