I've been reading a thread somewhere here and found some special words (or signs) the meaning of which I could not comprehend. Could someone help? These are: "1-3", "1-4" and something like "Vne". ????

I am not sure I know what you mean.

The thread is here http://forums.ubi.com/eve/foru...3110283/m/7131025438 (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/7131025438). The "terms" were used in the following context: "He can instantly break seeing he cannot do 1-4 wisely and climb continuing the attack to set up for a second pass and retain the advantage.
5 is his ONLY option.....9x out of 10 he will do 1-3..." and "..if you have a nicely diving kite, like a P-47 dive away with Vne towards home base."

Vne = velocity never exceed

the indicated airspeed you should ... well, never exceed

I think you are looking at LeBillfish's post. She lists a series of defensive manouvres numbered 1 to 5, then refers to manouvres 1 to 4, 1 to 3 etc.

And to clarify what VNE is, it is an Indicated Airspeed that you should never exceed because you risk either (a) breaking the plane (bits falling off, possibly including a wing), or (b) having insufficient control authority to pull out of the dive. Just because you should never exceed this, don't take it as a guarantee you can do anything you like below this speed - with the next patch from Team Diadolos introducing more realistic G limits, jerking the stick about at high speed will be asking for trouble long before you reach VNE.

My advice it just to ignore any part of a thread that is not intelligible, it will make more sense and be more helpful if you just pay attention to those who are sensible and sensitive enough to use plain english.

Don't worry that you are missing anything, as in any facet of human action, 90% of what is produced here is garbage anyway. And in time you will learn which contributors are 100% garbage. Good luck.

You refer to a post here Jumo, or are you just having a hard day?

Please don't hijack the thread Jumo. The off topic area is available if you wish to vent a bit.

The only not in -plain- English terms there are all in Pilot-ese which given this is the IL2 forum
should not need to be re-explained or even have definitions linked to every time they are used.

Semi-on is right enough to ask since that is a way to find out and the posts he refers to are not BS.
There are plenty of members willing to help as this thread shows. I bet he knows what Vne means!
