I'll up that by one http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

hejbrigade- having an inappropriate or historically incorrect aircraft is not a cheat. Please be a little reasonable here. You were on an online server, and whoever made the mission put in a plane that wasn't what you were expecting. You, I, and anyone else are free to include any aircraft in the sim into any mission. That's not called "cheating"

AGAIN Peoples words being taken out of context....

He asked the simple question
"Was this cheat or what? Or is just part of gameplay script on begining of the map?"

As in was it part of the online game produced by the map maker or had someone added it possibly to fly...

we were telling him that it was possibly added as a stand in for the Okha

nothing more insidious, instead he gets quoted as "Was this cheat or what" as if he is accusing people and then people sadly jump on the bandwagon......

Cram it full of walnuts Tony. I'm not in the mood for your sermons today. You might do a touch of taking things in context yourself old boy. You charge in like gangbusters to do what? Assume I'm putting somebody down, and also to tell me him and everyone else just what HE meant. Bravo.

I explained the situation to the guy. If that's not good enough for you, I can provide a diagram so you can more easily cram it full of walnuts. Happy now?

As I understand this was mistake in mission making.
I played many maps on Zeke server and I also once played in Ohka plane... you started in air full responce from joystick and gas, but no cockpit.

I just saw this online chasing a Betty and taken a picture to show you guys just for fun and for thing to talk about!

Maybe it was mistake by mission maker puting V1 instead of Ohka.

Paranoia..... we all get it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I was on that server today for a couple of hours, and I kept seeing funny stall/spin behavior.

It really did see strange... but as far as I know, all the current hysteria has been based on the vague possibility of stuffing an "upgraded" FM into a suitable shell; such as a Mustang FM into a P40, for instance. I haven't seen any hints of any kind of "stall/spin" exploits as was once the case in AirWarrior.

Just goes to show how susceptible we all are once this bogeyman raises it's head!

It's meant to represent the Okha, as correctly mentioned above, as the Okha can't otherwise be represented in a DF server. It plays no real part in the mission, other than to add some 'atmosphere,' and to add a target for allied level-bombers - the launch site, not the rockets themselves - (I think). Mention of it is cunningly hidden in the briefing.
