Default Beyond 414 wish list

Russian:
1. Return the ptabs so they can be used in straight winged IL-2, make it available by a date around june-july1943. Many of the straight winged IL-2 were still around.

2. R-5 is still a gutless wonder, wont climb out and overheats even at radiator 4 in a climb with 60%fuel and 6 fab 50. Also R-5 rear gunner dosnt have to change drums.

3. RS 132 rockets need to be installed on I-16 and others if historically correct, this entry is in the games planes folders.

German:
1. We have AB 250 for Bf110C, why not for E and F models?

2. Need strafing pods with bomb loads for Ju88 a4 and they need to be added to Ju87B and D.

3. Bf110G nite fighter and Ju88 C-6.

British:
1. Tropical filters for Hurricanes on desert maps
2. 40mm tank busters MK IVD etc.
3. Hawker Typhoon

Unfortunately, the R-5's FM can't be much improved because it has become quite close to the real one. I have discovered, during beta testing, that the major flaw of the pre4.14 R-5's FM was that its lift capacity wasn't enough for it to fly to its service ceiling of 6200 m, being only able to fly up to 5200 m. Following tests had shown that it could finally fly properly without overheating too much. I've also found that the optimal power setting is 75-85% throttle to keep RPM above 1300 and prevent overheating. Best cruise IAS is between 145km/h and 160 km/h depending on your bombload.

If you want to compare the current R-5's performance to the real one you can download the original manual here :

https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/thread...5-manual.5243/

The manual states that the R-5 should be able to climb to 300 m after takeoff at full throttle in 25s without bombs. I've done some tests with the corrected FM during the beta, and I've managed to get to that altitude with 100% fuel.
Furthermore, the maximum water temperature is 75°C as indicated in the manual, so it is normal that the R-5 overheats rapidly.

I hope this helps you.

Those are about the same i use in fmb. if air started its kinde decent but from ground sttart it climbs slowly, i usually drop off to 82% just after take off and try to make a shallow gradual climb, and apply radiator 2 right away. Interesting plane, seems kinda sluggish with max loads etc.

Yeah, it is really sluggish. I remember reading somewhere that R-5 pilots complained a lot about its airspeed. I can't find the interview I've read but the pilot said something like "The R-5's airspeed? Oh it was awful!". In the same interview he also said that they couldn't load a lot of bombs without draining the fuel tanks to be able to takeoff.

Wishlist so soon after 4.14 release?

Why not then...

1, Flyable Ju-88C6, pleaseeeee!!!
2, Hurricane I, later british version with 12lb boost (basically only FM change)
3, Flyable B-25C. Needs only instrument panel change for pilot cockpit, sources easily available. Bombardier and turret cockpits can be ported straight from J version, ventral gunner would work just like rear turret on He-177.

Please...

1. Consider "official" adaptation of the Graphics Extender mod by slibenli. (Available and extensively discussed at SAS forum).

2. Delete un-historical objects from the maps. At least those which were mentioned hundreds times by users since the first release, as breakwaters in the Sevastopol bay.

3. Add second crew member view to Il-2 field mod and to Beaufighter (there might be other aircraft with the same issue?)
It's a shame that such good aircraft as Beau remains blind for so many years (introduced in 2004, I guess?). If cockpit model is too complex, just add the view without the cockpit, it will be of great help.

4. Consider to add mirror to Do 335. It was installed as early as on V2 prototype and I assume it was not removed later from pre-production/production models. Hopefully I'm not mistaken.



5. The last but not the least... Sign Peace Agreement with SAS and other modders and go ahead together. Not as one team (which is impossible and counter-productive) but as diverse, creative and friendly community.

I have quite a few black and white close up pictures of the TBD cockpit showing the various crew stations and equipment. There is also some useful comments on how things functioned, such as how gun mount swivels/rings worked and their range of movement, which levers did what, bomb aimer's equipment functions etc. If someone from the Team wants them just message me.

Hello everybody and thank you for your work on this lovely game.

i like to see these in the new patch(es). here goes:

1- rocket loadouts for p-51s.

2- default british skin for spitfires and hurricanes in desert maps. (like what we already have for bf-109s.)

3- spitfire mk1 and mk2 (or at least 8 matchine gun loadout for spitfire vb early. i know its not realistic but at least we can use it as an alternative untill a proper mk1/2 added.) plus battle of britain hurricane mk1 and the english channel map.

4- p-51a/a-36 apache with air brakes.

5- flyable fiat g-55.

6- gunners to shoot ground targets.
for example passing a german car column in your il2, and your rear gunner starts firing at cars as you pass on. or imagine flying a b-24 over japanese ships or somthing. i think it is really cool and exciting. and of course the ability to turn this feature on and off for saving ammo purpose via tabs for example.

How about adding 1º Gruppo caccia and 3º Gruppo caccia squadriglias of the ANR to the Italian available squadrons? 2º Gruppo caccia is already there, so why not?
