X4 missile is definitely pure fun. Bombers are hapless against them and control is quite easy I think. Against bombers I rarely miss.
I tested it against tanks as well and the big warhead has some power. If you hit, you can blow up T34 effortlessly. Soft targets are on fire en masse, too. But that is kind of overkill...

Only against jets you can't use it well. It's not so much a problem of hitting the target, I got two MiG9s, which tried to climb away from me (easy as I was in a Ta183...). But the fuse caused to detonate to early and with the speed of the MiG, it was to far away already. It only had some fuel leaks.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

the recoil of the 6 Browning is still there in a F4U and F6F , but i can aim now much better http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


the Shiden-Kai ?
i had it at 555km/h TAS at sealevel on the crimea map http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
max dive speed is 800km/h IAS.
its much much superiour over the Ki-100 !!
but as i said, its ammo load has to be fixed.

the Oscar II, the pits are locking fantastic - even if the headrest is still not the smalest http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
the default skins have not changed for it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
the guns seems to be modeled as US .50cal Brownings, not like the Ho-103 of the Ki-43-I.
its around 30km/h faster on the deck than an Oscar I , and has not the nice handling of the Oscar I anymore !

the Ki-27 is pure fun !! turns on half a dime BUT if you are slow it is accelerating VERY slow !! thats is most propably because its propeller is modelled as a fixed pitch one.
but it can fly negG manouvers without engine cut. cockpit is very nice, rearview is good (very small headrest).
shooting down Polikarpows with its light MGs is not easy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

the B6N and A5M are looking also very good, but as you know, not flyable http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The Blitz with it's hyper-accurate dive bombing possibilitys is the scariest foe for anything on the ground now; add it's speed and you have the "new best" concerning ground attack.

From the jet fighters the He-162 D stands out in it's own class.
It behaves like a Eurofighter in terms of manouvrebility, E-retention and acceleration and is able to catch anything: Mig-9s on the run, Spitfires in the turn.
It's twin 30mm cannons deal death to everything that might possibly cross the gunsight and the ammo load is sufficient.

The Ta-183 is a little disapointing when loaded with X-4s, but has one of the prettiest pits and can hold it's own against anything but the Mig-9 if flown properly.

The X-4s themself are easy to control (I have them mapped on my second hat-switch) and are superb multyfuncional weapons; turn fights excluded.

The Me-262 HG II feeks like the true version of the 262 family.
It has all strengths enforced and all flaws largly ironed out.

The Ta-152C is what you'd expect it to be: a heavy Dora with lots of firepower.
No torpedo though.

The Lerche is the cheater plane itself http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

How about it's automatic combat flaps? Is it possible to turn them off and control them manualy, like on other planes? When I was trying Shiden Kai online without a pit in 4.05 I got a feeling that these flaps can ruin ur gunnery, if they deploy in the wrong moment, so it can be more of annoyance...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yes you can use the flaps manually at all times, though you can retract them when they kick in automatically they will just deploy again right away. I think of it as the auto retracting flaps on the Wildcats, but opposite.

Yeah, well, that's my problem... I'd like to turn entire system off, so they don't deploy if I don't do it manually. Besides, if they deploy during a high speed flight (when correcting aiming for example), they may produce enough pitch to sustain the g needed for them to stay open, so they don't retract if you don't push the stick forward? Ima bit skeptical about this 'feature'...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

above 3,5G the combat flaps are going out.
at 2,5G they will go in again. (datas taken from the game readme)

for me the system does not disturb my aim.

Doubt anyones pilots were firing under G loadings heavier than deployment speeds. Thats asking for trouble in more than one way.

The stick in gut trigger locked down is the suspect part of air combat simulation. BoB has a good possibility of eliminating much of this. Crowded skies and weather, anyone vapor locks a target in that pot and they're as dead as the guy being chased. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Valencia, returning in his shot-up but airworthy Hellcat after his harrowing February 1944 mission over Truk, summed up the thoughts of many pilots about Hellcats: ?If they could cook, I?d marry one.?

With the new A-20C, Il-10 and especially the Ar-234 a great add-on for ground attack fans like me. The jets are great fun to fly, it feels almost like a new game after years of prop combat.

The Mig-9s effectiveness against bombers at altitudes above 3000 m is seriously handicapped by the 37 mm guns exhaust fumes that shut down one or both engines very quickly after a prolonged salvo of a few seconds.

The Ar-234 quite unexpectedly became my favourite airplane in the new add-on. Very good bomb load, fast, nice skins and the periscope bombsight with it's CCIP is easy to use, very accurate and can also be used for horizontal low level bombing, which becomes very easy with it.

The Corsairs gun induced yaw bug is fixed.

I have better sound, maybe just because I made a new install and choose better options for my systems, but it is definitively improved.

I now hope somebody will make a Khalkhin Gol campaign to use the Ki-27s and of course a campaign for the Burma map..<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
