DGEN offline stalingrad campaign has P-39N listed as flyable VVS fighter. But is this anachronistic? I though P-39N wasn't around Eastern front until after Kuban 1943? Shoud I replace it in the .dat file for drop-down A/C with P-39D? Was La-5 at Stalingrad?

Also in campaigns following Moscow through Rzhev, I replaced LaGG-3 Series 4 with Series 29 and/or Series 35.

thanks

thanks I don't think the LA-5 appeared in Stalingrad at all. All my research shows that it was brought to fontline service units for the first time in July and August of 1942. I thought Stalingrad was in early 1942. Also I think that the Soviets got some P-400 versions of the Airacobra fairly early, and this is equivalent to the P-39D1.

Stalingrad went on through the Christmas of 1942 and ended in february. I believe the La5 was indeed there, though I can`t find my book with the details... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Yes, I was thinking Stalingrad was early '42 but it was late. So the LA-5 could have been there, but that does not mean it was there.

There were some La-5 in Stalingrad, I should check in BC/RD vol 3 tonight to see to what extent.
