I wish there were an option to run the A-8 without the 30mms for some extra turning and climbing power. :playing:

:honoring: Very nicely done; I loved your segment on evasive maneuvers. Despite all my time on the 190s, I've rarely utilized their prowess in roll rate to such great effect. 

 

Thanks for responding to my comment on this plane! I just came out with a 14k PP game with it so clearly it has something to offer. I still feel it doesn't quite match up to the Dora but at least now its a premium Focke-Wulf I will roll out on occasion rather than a hangar queen.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Nice video OP, but Spirit, that sounded like it was in a totally different context than what you meant, man. :trollface:

Those dodge maneuvers almost saved me yesterday. Might show it off later :great:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Yeah the Focke-Wulfs are hard to use but their key is insane roll rate when it comes to dogfights. I've managed to win dogfights against Mustangs and 1/209's in the Ta-152 and managed to beat MiG's when dogfighting in my Ta-183. I used to think roll rate was useless compared to WT but, there's still a bit of use for it if you know what to do.

 

Still decent video, but I think you need to get better at manual controlling your plane, when you're rolling pitching and yawing manually all at once there's some pretty ridiculous maneuvers you can pull off, and you especially need those ridiculous maneuvers to get an edge on your opponent when it comes to the Focke-Wulf line.


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

Just sayin', you actually switched target from the I-210 to a P-51A when they crossed, but the point is well enough made :)
C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

Your probably right Hoom.  The ID on the plane I shot down was a little blurry to me so I wasn’t sure.  However, the Soviet did not shot me down, I survived a bad situation and got a kill out of it.  As you say, that is the point.  This aircraft has a good role rate that I wanted to feature.  Hopefully I did that my friend :)

May I suggest turning off auto-flaps? You're bleeding too speed in your turns.
