Great point Robert. I would also add that in our virtual world, there is rarely ever the "fear factor" present that governs a lot of what a pilot does in actual combat and that has a lot to do with how a person does in the virtual world.That, and the absence of any G's to deal with!!

The Jug could more than hold its own in a dogfight, like any weapon you just have to know how to use it effectively.

B'n'Z, no turning fights, get low and slow and you're dead. Simple.

On the other hand, German ace Gunter Rall had a very unpleasant experience at the hands of the 56th at low level.

Yeah I love that painting

A bug in the FM:

There is nothing so hurtful for the brain as splinters of broken rose-coloured spectacles.

BTW, is the P-47 going at cruise already :-) ?

Really looking fwd into it... After a hiatus ( as usual ) I'm back... Visited the other temptations, enjoyed some of the aspects, but in the end I'm always reminded of such "basic" stuff as the need for rudder, the natural need to use it, without starring at the turn coordinator, and other subtleties that really make the accuracy of flight reproduction in DCS different, for the better...

The P-47s I tried didn't convince me... I'll wait for this one.
