Does not work vs AI, AI don't obay the laws of physics. They can do things that are impossible. You should be able to extend away from the AI in a D9 but thats about it. If the AI is in a plane that turns tighter then you you generally cant beat them. I personally think that flying vs players is the only way to go, with the exception of AI bombers.

Try flying on the Burning skies server if your interested in PvP. Warbirds of prey server is a mix of AI and players, you try there to.

Unfortunately in VR I am not sure the performance is quite there yet. Also seems to be hard to find servers with many people where I'm at, and is sometimes frustrating to even find a server. At the moment I can see 'severs 3 players 3'! All players in different servers and none of which seem to be WW2...
The 190 is basically a no go in SP, because although I can get a kill in it, I can't escape anything it's a brick! I know AI can degrade performance but I don't understand why the pursuing AI can not be slowed or its shooting acurracy decreased some. Guess it would have a butterfly effect, but its very annoying, as it makes the whole thing a game of paper scissors stone, albeit with pretty much nothing being able to beat the spitfire, and pretty much everything able to kill the 190's.

Hi Wolf,


The burning skies server has been a bit hit and miss the last couple of days (unsure as to why) but it was up this evening and normally has 10-40 human players. Primetime being euro evening. It runs the Caucaus map so you may be missing it if your searching Normandy.



Not sure how VR handles the icon settings in there as its hard enough with a normal setup .


As for turning with Spits this is the one and only advantage it has so I would hope you wouldn't turn inside well.

if spit is flown poorly bf-109 can turn inside but if you meet good spit pilot you cant. if spit is on tail he can very easy cut turn in even if he slower it will catch you in turn

I don't know what time zone your in but you should be able to fly on burning skies when its populated. Its most popular on the weekend during European afternoon/evening time. But usually Americans start joining when the Europeans start leaving and it stays alive for a while. I seriously recommend trying multiplayer, it's a lot of fun.



Make sure you are running DCS Open Beta, it's the version everyone plays and make sure DCS is updated. Also as No.119_Bruv (VK-B) pointed out, Burning Skies uses the Caucauses map.


I highly recommend flying PvP, it's great fun. Even better flying with other people.

Which Spit?


You refer to the K4 but don't refer to which Spit with which you are referring.


Also, at what altitude? Design features make one superior over the other at different altitudes.


They both in general, have different jobs. So please be specific!
