I feel a shame that I ever blamed the FW-190 series or - if not clearly blamed - at least agreed some statements conscidering the view out of the cockpit. The old story went like you can´t see out of the cockpit and expecially when firing etc...

Well! I have practised a bit with the FW-190:s and found out few things as follows:

1) The programmers have succeeded in creating highly real-feeling effect of sunlight. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

2) The limitations of view can occassionally overcome by rolling the plane a bit and using the wider views of the other parts of the cockpit than just the windshield. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

3) When playing with the padlock on, the restrictions of the view do not bother. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

4) When playing without the padlock, I am in trouble anyway, because I can´t easily find the enemy after any maneuvers other than just the simpliest ones. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

5) After having shot down the enemy, one would not be anymore interested in the restrictions of the FW-190:s cockpit view. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

6) After having got shot down by the enemy it doesn´t really matter if there were any restrictions in the views of the cockpit, because the enemy most likely was more competens pilot than me and he would have shot me down anyhow! (Most likely one of the toughest Russian fighters). http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

7) No matter what the view was, one can always escape the attacking fighter or at least try that, climb back to the attacking position and try again. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

8) There are moments when it is better to fly with eyes closed anyway, so... no problem with restrictions of the views of whatsoever! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

YES! I really feel a shamed that I ever took part in criticising the views of the FW-190. I have discussed, red the topics and found surprisingly lots of points around this matter and practised with the FW-190 so I want to clearly say, that this is a great sim and I trust on Oleg´s teams solutions no matter what they are. No matter how much I think about technical questions, programming etc, etc, etc, (of which I do not understand much about; LOL) the Oleg´s team has thought more.

Great, great simulator indeed! I remain happily practising with the Focke Wulfs and waiting for the patches, ad onns, Pacific simulator, Battle of Britain etc. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

I wish you all good flights and fights!

Wow, you must have worked your butt off to get those 40 posts so quickly.

When you log back in under your normal username, don't forget to agree with yourself, and then point out some minor flaw with your argument, otherwise you'll just give yourself away.

Though the post count is low, the poster has been around the forums for quite a while. I seem to recall posts under that name from some of the more interesting discussions http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Some ppl think before they make a statement and end up with low posting numbers. Others never gives their posting a thought and end up with thousends of them http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Heads-on firing was not a safe practice after all ?
Jussi Huotari: It was not specially recommended.....
And later, as the Russians were armed with 20mm cannons, it was unwise to meet them heads-on
