I have been focusing on the Hawker Tempest lately, here are some vids of it and also I did a 1st multiplayer Flying Circus vid, it was pretty awesome.

Hawker Tempest Bodenplatte Map


P40 Vs FW190 & Bf109 (IL-2 BOM)

Tempest – Rhineland map, Combat Box

Ok I want to say upfront there was barely any action in this stream and also alot of the action that took place was poor quality… I was having huge trouble spotting aircraft in this stream, to the point I could see flak triangulating a plane directly below me, but couldnt ever see the plane and so on. I am starting to wonder if I should reduce my screen res to 1080, for multiplayer, because I fly in 1440p, and as far as targets go, I cant see S*%t. lol. There were around 30 players on the map and it is such a vast huge map, that it seemed empty. It may also only be worthwhile being on the server if it is close to 60 players. ***Update: I just had a look at the forum and it said Expert Spotting has been turned on on CB for the last 24 hrs. Man I gotta say Im running 1440p and I REALLY had trouble seeing anything in this map.

Tempest – IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte

Albatros DV – Multiplayer – IL-2 Sturmovik: Flying Circus – Volume I

Flying an Albatros DV in multiplayer. Pretty great fun, although I had a long wait to chase and climb combat. Am looking forward to the servers getting more permanent and populated.

Tempest compilation (IL-2 Bodenplatte)

On the EU 1c server: It is really good for practicing PvP because you are straight into the action and you get a great deal of combat experience and minimal travelling time.

IL-2 Bodenplatte – New Stuff – ground units trucks etc

Here is a look at some new stuff in IL-2 Bodenplatte. These are the Ai vehicles and ground units as well as the player controlled planes and the Ai B25.

Tempest Vs. Train – Combat Box

P51 high altitude (IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte)

Mustang single player vs some D-9 & K-4 at 31,000 feet.

Tempest: Effect on He111 (IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte)

Mustang Vs FW190 (IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte)

P51D Mustang – High Altitude dogfight – IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte

High alt the Mustang is a bit faster than the K-4 but the difference is not too great.

P51D Mustang low altitude dogfight (IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte)

Next I will do a high altitude dogfight to see how the performance is at around 25,000 feet against the same Axis fighters. I imagine the Mustang will then be relatively faster.
On the deck here, the P51 is slower than the K-4 and mostly slower than the D-9. The greatest risk is to go 70 manifold and burn out the engine trying to go faster. Better to just keep the power under 60 and preferably down in the green arc and just turn fight around with the occasional burst of speed.

Zooming around in the Mustang – its a heck of a good fighter.
