This sim never ceases to amaze me. I discovered last night that the P-38 climb/boost problems could be overcome by the histocical method €" ie the €˜.50cal assist€. Its easy. Just get your wingman to shoot at the rear of your €38 with his .50cals (NOT the cannon aswell though, mind), and the pressure of the 450lbs of AP ammo will push your aircraft that extra distance. Don€t worry about aircraft damage as these are .50cals of course! They used to use this trick often in the Pacific Theatre, be sure.

Now. On the subject of .50cals. Many here have claimed that they are too €˜weak€, and that they are €˜porked€ as they cannot significantly damage a FW190. You fools! Clearly you are shooting directly at the enemy plane. That€s never going to work. You need to BOUNCE the shells off the ground €" preferrably an asphalt surface €" into the underside of the FW190. They are unarmoured there and will be destroyed.

I fully expect the Tempest to climb, dive, turn and roll better than everything else in this sim. If it doesn't it just would not be historical. I have charts.

Better firepower than EVERYTHING else too. Otherwise I will whine.

:P

Actually, I REALLY want the Typhoon rather than Tempest.

I want a fighterbomber that can rip its own tail off in a dive. Oh yes! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I don`t understand, I got my wingman to shoot at the rear of my P38 and it shot my tail off. I thought you said it would just push me to a faster speed.

Why did you lie? Why?

WHYYYY?
