Latest Vids -A lot of PvP action
Most of my latest vids are live multiplayer person versus person PVP combat sorties.
This kind of thing is pretty good. There is a lot of depth to pvp, because tactics and flying the plane to its strengths are very important. I had spent around 2 weeks flying the Yaks, and now I’m flying the 109’s. Yak is mostly a turn fighter, while in comparison a 109 is a energy fighter, a boom and zoomer.
Boom Zoom practice at airfield
If you cannot out-turn your opponent then how on Earth do you shake them off your tail? climb hard and at some point your opponent who is chasing will stall and tip over and at that point you can stall turn and drop down on them and now you are on THEIR tail. It works if A the opponent doesnt hit you on the ascent and B, if you stall after they do.
Bf109G-2 Boom and Zoom practice
Practicing Boom and Zoom with the Bf109G-2, and Bf109F-4. In this entire session I only got 2 or 3 kills, but learnt a great deal about this tactic and Ill keep going until I get really good at it, because it is the ideal tactic to use with Axis planes like the 109 and 190, as they are not such great turn fighters, but they can do boom zoom very very well.
Spitfire IX 4 kills in a flight (IL-2 Bodenplatte)
I have been practicing with the Spit IX and this is probably my first 4 kills in a flight in PVP. Secret to my success was to set the convergence and sight to minimum distance – around 100 yards and then select clipped wings – to give me a faster roll rate, very essential for fine tuning aiming in some of those high stakes moments.
Bf109G-6 With Mk108
tree prune reloaded
Over the last 3 days I have been hacking away at the tree foliage with the extended Mk.II pole-saw, its now around 3.5M long and has a curved pruning saw on the business end. It only works without the blade getting thoroughly stuck in the cut groove, if the sawing action is from top down and the blade not getting pinched by the two halves of the branch.

Bf109K-4 Vs Spitfire, LA5, LAGG 3 (IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad)
PvP Multiplayer action.
TA152 (IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946)
Flying a Ta152H-1 N1 in IL-2 1946. This is a mission out of ’46 and its called something like On Two Fronts, its basically 1945 and you are likely to find both Yaks and Mustangs in your sector. The Ta152 is basically a motor glider on steroids.
“A Silver Spitfire” Spitfire IX Vs Bf109 (IL-2 Bodenplatte)
Guns set to 100m convergence. The Spit can catch the faster 109 by out-turning.
Bf109G-6 Vs. LA5 – PvP – (IL-2 BOK)
Am just starting to fly 109’s in PvP now and this is the G-6 Vs LA5. Im noticing LA5’s can take quite a beating and still keep plodding along. Im not sure how to shoot them down at this stage haha. The outer wing seems to be the weakest spot.
Battlefield V marita
Still suck at this, some early success though.
Bf109G-14 PvP (IL-2 Bodenplatte)
Yes there is a Frog logo on the screen for half the flight. Aside that here is the first flight in the G-14 in multiplayer live. I bagged a LA5, a Spit IX and half another Spit IX. Then ran out of ammo and returned to base. This plane is very awesome, big speed big guns everything.
FW190D-9 Dora Vs Spitfire Mk.IX PvP (IL-2 Bodenplatte)
PvP flying the Dora is a really FAST experience haha.
Yak 7b pvp (IL-2 BOS)
What a flight! 2 flights actually. First one I bagged a 109 and then collided. It was basically 4-5 109’s vs me. 2nd flight: I bagged a 109 over the airfield upon takeoff and then assisted another 109 takedown and then ambushed a 110 and then got a oil windscreen situation and went to land but engine stopped. This concludes my livestream flights on the Yak, I am confident in both the Series 69 and the 1b as well as the 7b at this stage. Next up Ill return to the Bf109 and the FW190 and probably mostly fly the F-4.
