View Full Version : I thought I'd flown all the available planes, but....

...I've just discovered one position that I've missed. The gunner position on the later Ju 87.
(Hated it). But I was chuffed to find something I've overlooked. It made me realize the ammount of choice we have at the moment..
I'm a happy bunny. (and I don't want to know about what's in the next patch...It'll be Christmas when it comes!)

These days I get just as many kills from gunner positions as from the cockpit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Yeah I love the gunners positions, especially the power turrets now available with the A20 and B25, even though I'm not very succesfull in em, like it used to say on Wings on my amiga, I couldn't hit a bull in the butt with a bass fiddle!

Just out of curiosity how many flyables do we have now?

02-04-2005, 06:29 AM

My new favorite is to fly the Bf-110 from the gunner's position and blast anyone foolish enough to get on my dead 6. Makes for some great fun watching engine's flame out and lock-up, or to hear from the guy on my 6 that I'm somehow cheating 'cuz his corsair or spit is turning into a flaming wreck http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I new we had a lot but not that many http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

You would think we didn't have two planes to rub together from some of the posts around here.

how many flyables when you group them by type?

that is, all 109s variants count as one flyable, all corsairs as one, spitfires as one, 190s as 3 (antons, dora and Ta 152) etc

I mean, that ul,timate number of flyables IS a little fudged, for example; a 109 G6 and G6 late, the only difference is the ability to loadout a Mk108?
or the P 51 D 5 nt and 20 NA the only difference is the gunsight?

it still is a helluvalotta flyables, even if one does not count the extra variants of certai types

Number of flyable types? I think it's about 60. When I try to explain this to my non-sim friends, I like to compare this to the out-of-the-box offering of the MS product. What a bargain!
