Storm of War - DCS WWII / Historical Server

Just a quick question now that we are closing out the month featuring ground attacks, do the allies ever get the use of HVAR rockets instead of only being able to arm M8's on P47s? If i recall the first usage of HVARS historically was around the battles near St. Lo and the Normandy breakout. Still love the server and have a great time on there as always.

2. HVAR rockets were first used by P47s in Europe on July 15 1944. Prior to that date only M8 tube rockets are available for the P47s. HVARs are not to be used by P51s at all.

After longer break had little bit of desire of WW2 again. My two days on the SoW Server. Enjoy it or not 🤪

Hi,

 

I’m new to SoW and multiplayer in general. Really having a blast on the server with SRS. Thanks Phil and all those involved. 
 

I was just wondering if someone could explain why the Antons are spawned hot start with zero fuel?  The engine cuts out and I have to restart unless I’m really fast at getting the ground crew to refuel. Is it some server or multiplayer limitation?  Just curious as it only affects the Anton. Thanks!

As many times already stated, it was done so the Anton pilots dont have to waste/wait 10-15 mins for their engine to warm up, while making them unable to immediately take off for balance sake, or something like that.

From the Storm of War FAQ...

 

"  ED recently updated the aircraft engine temperature management which means that it can take from 5 to 10 minutes to warm up the Anton. Whilst some other aircraft also require warm up, the Anton is the one aircraft with these significantly long warm up times.
Given that ground crews had the task of pre-warming aircraft at front line airfields, we have chosen to start these aircraft in a hot state. Unfortunately DCS does not allow for pre-warmed aircraft with their engines shut off. In order to approximate this condition, the aircraft spawn with empty fuel tanks. The engines will shut off before the player is able to taxy forward, requiring a refuel and full start sequence.
This reduced the pre-taxy time from a minimum of 5 minutes down to about one minute.  "

Any chance to get that added for the P-47D as well? The P-47  takes a while to warm up as well and as far as i know or have seen, the Oil Dilute switch isn't functioning properly like it does on the Mustang to cut down on warm up time.

The P-47 while slightly longer than some of the others, is still commensurately shorter. Regarding the Oil Dilute switch issues, this is something that needs to be reported to ED (and then nag them to get it fixed). At this stage, the "hot-start / pre-warmed" option is only implemented on the Anton.
