I have been flying two planes in the last few weeks: The P40 Kittyhawk in IL-2 GB and the Spitfire I, Ia and Ia 100 octane in Cliffs of Dover 4.56.
Blitz Multiplayer TWC: Spitfire Mk.1 engine management practice
I think this is called TWC and it doesnt seem to allow track replay of external view! so we are stuck in the cockpit. This was some practice at seeing how long the engine of Spit Mk.1 can last at various settings. I believe I have the rads open full and I start off at a minimum power setting and then raise it to just below the redline and later balls to the wall and it lasted 2 minutes before shakes set in at that full power setting. I believe I have the prop at 70%. Overall a successful flight, so when there is some combat to be had, I may be able to do that now.
Spitfire Mk.Ia – PvP – Cliffs of Dover Blitz Edition
A brief flight to see CLOD Blitz. I saw a formation of Hurricanes, but they were Ai. A hour before I was on here and there was a big multiplayer battle – it was great.
Spitfire 1 (IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover Blitz Edition)
Another experimental stream on CLOD. Some technical difficulties, quite fun none the less.
P47D Thunderbolt – PvP familiarisation – (IL-2 Great Battles)
Familiarisation flight in the P47D. Seems this this plane was newly added to this server. I think it will be killa – once I get the hang of it. lol. At some point I realised the Supercharger was not on so switching it on made a noticeable improvement in performance. Apparently the plane turns well in a dogfight if flap deployed, but didnt get a chance to try this out. Also made it back to base with significant battle damage, probably just a fuel leak.
P40 & P47D (IL-2 GB)
Started off flying the P40. Did well destroying trucks. At the end of this, I got a few 109 kills with the P47D.
Spitfire Ia 100 Octane (IL-2: Cliffs of Dover Blitz Edition 4.56)
There was an update, we are now at 4.56. Here is a PvP multiplayer flight.
