P38 – IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte
P38 in Bodenplatte multiplayer.
Spad – Flying Circus
Flying the Spad on the Arras map. I found an effecrive way to combat the D7 with the Spad – you can fly faster so rather than turn fight, fly away at speed then turn and go head to head, but try to avoid head-on collisions, but that way you can be on an equal footing to the D7. I later tried that on a Albatros, but it didnt work, the Albatros was able to keep up, even though the Spad is very fast.
P38 Lightning – KOTA – 1080, sharpening off- IL-2 Bodenplatte
So I have been having trouble spotting in expert/normal spotting and so I reduced res to 1920 x 1080, then I unticked sharpen and here is 2 kills in a flight, I was able to spot and then hold the target in view this flight – whereas usually I see it then it vanishes. So that is some indication that dropping my res from 1440 down to 1080 and turning off sharpen can help someone with my system specs to spot effectively in expert spotting. Oh and also I turned down gamma from max 1.2 down to 1.1.
P40 Vs FW190 & Bf109 (IL-2 BOM)
Bf109F-2 Vs I-16 (IL2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad)
Here is a dogfight on the Finnish server. I believe it is running Alternate spotting and it was pretty good, because there was 1 Alluied plane and 2 Axis planes on the server and I still managed to run into action.
P38 lightning some initial sorties – IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte

FW190 Sorties – IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte
Forgot all about boost in these sorties, so would have got a better result with it. Still pretty good fun though.
FW190D9 (IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte)
Multiplayer action on the Bodenplatte map. Main things this refresher reminded is to use boost Left SHIFT and B, to be competetive in dogfights and to set the cannon and the 13mm on different buttons.
spring garden update
Here is basically a garden update. Main two things is: Its now Spring and secondly I planted some potatos 6 to 8 inches under the soil some 4 weeks ago and now look! Im super impressed by how fast they formed into plants and just grew out of nothing. I was half expecting this garden thing to fail, but now it looks like victory shall be mine. lol. I also planted a bunch of different vegetables, such as tomato, corn, brussel sprouts and pumpkin, but yet to see them – planted them as seeds out of the packet though – they may struggle or get eaten by snails – time will tell.
Bf109K-4 Vs. B25 (IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte)
A Single player quick mission. This is my first flight vs a B25 and my impression, is they hit hard so best to attack from the front and side, so that the prop disc may block the turrets from getting a clean shot.
