There I was, sweating our yet another mission over the desert. Whoever said it never rains here should be courtmashalled. The clouds are thick today. How am I supposed to protect our Africa Corps....WAIT! what is that? Out of the clouds climbs a formation of factory fresh Green P-39!?!? Oh stop! I forgot to put skins on this squad. STOP everything. In my impersonation of a spoiled Hollywood actor voice I say, "I cant fly in these conditions" I open up the FMB and dress them up in desert battle dress. Take two... ACTION!
I dont know about you but what provides the total immersion to me is how realistic the aircraft are. Whether they are friend or foe, they should look the part. Snow cammo over the eastern front, MC200s over the desert in tan, Checkernose Thunderbolts attacking a train, ect. It all has a place. And it is all made possible by the skinners. Thanks to all of you guys.
I have tried to recreate Battle of France in this series thru the years. Had a great time in my 109s fighting the Hurricanes and MS-406. However once you fly against the weakenss of this craft the 109 seems untouchable.
Enter Mr. Rudi Jaegar. His new skinpack for the Ki-100 is a brilliant idea. The Ki-100 is a worthy adversary to the 109 and in Bloch MB-152 livery it is very convicing. I proved real nice change to my BoF scenery. Suddenly the 109 is not so invincible. I set the stage on the Normandy map. I set up 12 Blochs against my 8 109E4s. They attacked ground targets and we intercepted. The MBs were a joy to fly against. I twisted and turned like never before(in a E4). At least four times I had to shake one off my tail while taking a few hits. I would allways have to break my own attacks early as another got on my tail. At one point I protected my wingman while he was attacking. Out of nowhere a Bloch fired a near 90 degree shot and blew him to bits. It was pure addrenaline. In a long stall fight at the end, I finnally managed to down my oponent. As the fight ended, I realized all of my squad had been eliminated but at least four Blochs survived. I ended this single mission and realized I had only ONE kill. But I was exhausted.
My hat is off to Mr. Jaegar. Outstanding work! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif
