I never imaginate that most of the the early Soviet aicraft equiped with radios didn't have two radios.

when I play with my friends with the VVS - only the leader and the second wingman going to be able to use two way radios - to be accurated with history.

Well, they could and did use hand signs extensively on all sides during the war, trying not to break radio silence unless absolutely necessary. Something you can't do in IL2.

you are rigth TinyTim.

my brain didn't worked very well when I say that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

it would be interesting to have a realistic communication system in SOW. altougth most online players speak english.

in offline and coop mods we can set the radio to open frequency and hear the conversations from the enemy. and even if we not speak the langague of it, wich was probably not something that most pilot's don't do, we have the subtititles. but it's simple to solve this - just don't read the substitiles. but by hear the enemy conversation and know that the enemy is in the area is enough and I think that at least some similary to real life.

sorry again, I still think that I are not saying something with sense, but that's wat came in my mind.

Yippee.

I-16: The I-16 s engine would not shut off immediately, if the stick was pushed forward, or even if the plane flew inverted. There was enough fuel for 2 or 3 minutes before the engine stopped working (unlike the game - it stops immediately).

Very interesting. I think they made a little mis translation when he said the P39 had a sliding canopy, but It had some useful info. the escort formation was different than what I expected.

The interview was done by me, donated also to JO (our IDF website is not operational at the moment).

There is no mistake about the canopy - there was one P-39 model with a sliding canopy, used in the USSR. It's picture was published with the original interview at my former website.

Which version of the P-39 would that be? I've never heard of that one before.
