Some fighters in this game was eguipped with pressurized cockpits.
They should have benefit for this.
A a/c like the I-16 with a more exposured cockpit should get something like "wounded pilot" above lets say 5K, today its got benefit because of the good visibility.
I think that the Ta-152 got pressurized cockpit and therefore the great bars around the cockpit. The bars act as blinders and reduce the view very much, so the high-tech solution in this case is bad for the a/c.
I read that some modern a/c got heated ammo, to prevent freezing and malfunction. This must have incrased the weight.
Put in malfunction of cannons and MG:s for the a/c not equipped with the antifreeze device.

I would love to see the modelling of parts reliability, e.g., unexpected engine, gun, or instruments failures.

However
1) high-tech stuff is usually unreliably until it becomes mainstream (=produced and used in high quantities)
2) this would open a huge debate, because parts reliability data is not available, so all would have to be 'guessed', and everyone would guess in a different way.

Just imagine yourself, taking off in a Ta-152, climbing to 8.000m and then suddenly loosing oxigen supply and loosing conciousness in a matter of seconds. Wouldn't you start complaining that the reliability is wrongly modelled?

Yep.

Bring on them Gremlins!

Would be nice if things just broke up for no appearent reason ... other than that it happened in reality.

(Wait a minute, some of it is modelled already. Put me in a plane and turn on CEM... some engine trouble will surely force me to RTB early http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif )

Have Fun!
