wow palm trees, yeah you can watch them as your plane stalls from 3000 meters and crashes into them

If you guys actually like this patch then they won't change it.

As I said, I'll be back dating and running a server for the version before the patch from hell.

By the way the hurricain won the battle of britain which shot down FW's, bf109's and a tons of bombers, as it stands now it would have a hard time shooting a blimp.

Are you trying to tell me that a russian planes made out of bicycles and old tin cans at a point when the country was so broke it could not afford to pay attention built a better plane than the free world. The YAK was like thier tanks. They were not great by any stretrch of the imagination but they had a lot of them. Almost 40% of all flights did not return. But hey who am I to argue, according to UBI, history has been re-written, and the russian planes are much better, sounds like the movie 1984.

Get a grip and do some reading. Do you know why we did not idolize these planes when we were kids.? because they were crap in real life.

If you are refering to the FW190 then the Hurricane did not confront them during that battle because the FW190 was largely present only from the summer of 1941 and on and not the previous summer which was when the Battle of Britan was going on.

Most of the time the Hurricanes were employed by the RAF against the German bomber formations, only engaging fighters when absolutely necessary. It was found that the Hurricane was not a good match for the BF 109 and that while it could out turn the 109, it could not outdive or out climb it. So the Spitfires were generally used more as the hunters for fighters while the Hurricanes went after the bomber formations...a task that it did very well at. This seems to be generally agreed apon by most books and documentation that I've read.

I also disagree with the blimp comment. I still fly the Hurricane online...pre and post patch (as some will start to find, I fly ALOT of different planes to keep myself interested) and I can beat lots of people by turning inside their boom and zoom and then catching them on the uptake.

Its not just a blimp shooter...

My God! Whoever this LastRights guy is, he can't give it a break. Just gaze at the palm trees and chill out, man. Me, I can't wait to fly my Zero (hurry up Add-on, please) over those trees and pop a bunch of Hurricanes, which by the way were inferior to the Bf109 and couldn't have fought FW190s in the BOB as the BOB was essentially over by the time the FW is in production.. Oh well.

Since when were FW's involved in the BOB...

hmmmm... just trolling I think. wasn't the Yak the first Russian plane to really be competitive against the Luftwaffe, AFAIK it was early VVS tactics which were ineffective and a major contribution to losses, at least thats my take from Black Cross Red Star.



The palm trees are great and welcome additions IMO, and improvements in the patch outweigh the faults, as everyone knows its still beta.

Enjoy your server, I don't think too many people will be going back to v1.0.

Did you read up on the BOB?, but then I believe your just trolling.

You're completly right LastRights. Yaks are crappy. In fact that must have been the exact reason why the Normandy-Niemen chose them above all other available ac. Don't you think?

Maybe you're the one that should do some reading /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Didn't see the palm trees but found several weird\odd structures\features on the various maps.
Now, granted I cant land for crap, but it was a shot up He-111...and touching down on roads isnt grand thinking in a wide wing craft, but I did snap a pic....I'm IDC_Love2Vulch.
Long story on that squad, you'd be amazed at who's in it /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Football man! Call it football! Anyway, the palm trees look sweet, and they'll stay ssweet as long as they don't try making a forest full of them using 1C-Maddox's custom patented 3tier trees technique!

Makes you wonder!

Where do you have Palm Trees?

North Africa, Southern Mediterranean, Pacific

Are palm trees in Russia, Finland, Germany, Britain, Baltic States?

Is this a hint about the next war theatre for FB?
