    A bunch of us tried the TB-3's with I-16's under wing in a dogfight room. I have to say I haven't had that much fun in a while. Amazing to say the least. I was joking with the TB-3 pilot and told him he needed to touch up the paint under his wing. Also, I wanted the stuardess to fetch me a beer and peanuts while I sat in my I-16 awaiting deployment.

    On one successful mission we deployed on the outskirts of an enemy airfield. My I-16 was armed with those humongous bombs and they found their mark on some hangars. I then engaged some fighters and eventually was shot down. Too bad the mother ship did not survive so I could reattach.

    All the time we were playing with this I could only think of you sitting at your PC testing this concept. What a fun job you have.

    Now, the big question, could we strap IL-2's under the wings instead of I-16's? This sim is a blast

    Drop them at about 50m altitude. I did this in FMB mission test and the I~16s slide across the ground to a stop hehe.

    This could be a way of simming Partisan drops. They used to have Partisan Leaders jump out of U~2 into snow banks with no parachute.

    I don't think that it is possible

    MiG-3 SPB for Zveno

    An updated Zveno considered the use of a Pe-8 four-engine bomber and two MiG-3s with bombs. The project was abandoned due to the heavy workload of the factories.

    Estimated data:
    total mass 33500 kg;
    maximun speed with all the engines in action: 405-420 km/h;
    Ceiling 8700-8900 m;
    Flying range at 5,000 m: 1320-1450 km, with the fighters engines nourished by the fuel of the bomber;
    duration of flight about 5 hours. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> *bah* I guess not
