I think either the damage reduction has gone too far, or some other things need adjusting - I spent five minutes dogfighting an AI Ka-50 with the fixed miniguns, I hit the rotor head, the tail,...

It's very fast for any propellor aircraft of the time! but yes, what an amazing piece of engineering, and as always with great British things very nearly didn't happen thanks to The Authorities. I...

The Spit or the 109 - first time I landed the Spit it was perfect, and I've never managed to do it again without some mishap or other. T/O is fairly simple, remember to hold the stick back to lock...

Used to get at least 10 pairs a day over the town I grew up ( along with Hawks & Hercs, and then visits by just about every NATO aircraft you can think of ). The GR1 avionics seem to hit the sweet...

Clipped wings just meant unbolting the wingtips, you could bolt high altitude extended ones back on iirc . There wasn't any thought of saving aluminium, there wasn't any particular shortage on the UK...

The F8 had MG-131s in the cowling instead of the 17s, though. With all the extra stores racks too I think it'd be an interesting change. I guess a Sturmbock would be a pretty good ground strafing...

I think you'll find the EE Canberra had a rather longer service life than the B-57 licensed copy btw - 1951-2006. I'd like a Hawker Hunter myself - introduced 1951 and still active as contracted...

Yes, there were A-8 bomber destroyer versions. I don't think they'd be all that nice to fly - the 108's ballistics aren't great and the Sturmbock versions were very heavy & not something you'd want...

Last few times I tried I've just fallen overboard on spawn, but admittedly I don't think I've tried since the last round of carrier fixes. Might have something to do with being in motion also.

The SHAR 2 radar was a properly developed AI radar - not sure if that had any A/G mode like the II+ ex-Hornet radar does, it certainly had look-down over land which was a long way in advance of the...

The UK ones had Sea Eagle many years ago & the German Navy ones carried AS-34, so you'd not be short of anti-ship no matter which IDS.
