I have always missed that feature and after today it only makes it even more sorely missed http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I remember. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I really miss the target views, this is one of the first things I asked for when IL-2 was released but to no avail.

I really miss the awesome immersion as well, especially the great radio chatter. *sigh*

radio chatter, remember this one "you could teach monkeys to fly better than that"

Well you *can* get a target to player view... Just a bit complicated. Use CRTL+F2 to cycle through enemies till you find the one you want, then hit F6 till external padlock is locked onto you.

I never ever touched that in EAW. Not missed at all.

yep korolov, I am aware of this feature, but here is where ctrl f10 at eaw and ctrl f2 at fb differ.

at fb the view is not fixed on the enemy plane, thus you have to keep cycling the view around by panning, and when the enemy plane is maneouvering it is impossible to keep up so that you can see both the enemy aircraft and your own.

at eaw the view was fixed on the enemy aircraft looking forward from his six. I believe its called track view. so you could see your aircraft and the enemy at the same time. you always knew which way to roll or turn your plane to avoid giving the enemy a shot. the eaw view I speak of would only be second to actually being able to sit in the enemy aircraft cockpit and still be able to maneouver your own aircraft.

that's exactly what CTRL+F2 then F6 does...
