I just finished re reading Rocket Fighter by Mano Ziegler. Its the story of the Me-163. Its fascinating. Tells how volitile the Komet was and how it was fraught with danger. Can't wait till we get to fly the Komet in the addon.

Yeah, as a matter of fact it did. The book goes into great detail how successful the system was in tests. It does not say if it worked operationally, however. Great Read.

If you haven't already, take a look at Luftwaffe Fighter Aces, by Mike Spick. It's a pretty worthwhile read.
