MG151/20 MG thread does not belong in the dead horse beating. It actually proved there is a bug in IL-2 code, and revealed some nasty programming conventions in 1C like copy pasting code instead of making instances. Got the MG151/20 fixed.

MG151 - Too weak
La7/Ki84/Spitfire - N00b threads.
BF109 - Is there ever a thread not about this? WillyM was better at Sowing machines.
P51 - its porked cause I can't fly it like Chuck Yeager threads
P47 - its porked cause I can't fly it like RS. Johnson. Saying that, it took years before real data was used to correct it.
Fw190 bar threads.

Honourary Tempest rear view threads. But those get kudos.

What gets me is Kurfurst Spitfire hate discussions. Oh they make me laugh. Proof is in the pudding.

Truly one of the great classics. The thread is now deleted, but even got mentions in the Moderators Forum. (None of them good. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif) The setup: After King Kong was released, someone posted on their board King Kong vs. T-Rex. The response from our community flooded the thread, including posts from old mods. It was very funny, and really one of the classics.

We've also had many great threads from the old Pilots lounge.

2. 50 Cals Kill Tiger Tanks

3. FW 190 is porked. due to bar, roll etc.


these three topics drew out the best and the worst and for some crazy reason both sides on all three topics thought they were ABSOLUTELY correct!

trim on a slider. answer:why not its fun !!

50 cals and tiger tanks. : i have already proved they can take out a tiger with accurate rounds at 1000 rds per second

FW 190 is porked ... no it wasnt but i still cant see a thing with that idiotic bar so get rid of it !
