Spitfire IIb and Hurricane Mk.II didn't apprear until AFTER the BoB.

Given the resources available on the battle, there are no excuses for this!

All RAF Battle of Britain fighters were painted green and brown on top...never grey.

A Hurricane Mk.II would be in grey and green on top...not brown and green.

The Macchi Mc.202 had a 3-bladed propeller...not a 4-bladed propeller.

The aircraft you have listed as a P-51B is actually Mustang I - the RAF name for the P-51A (the A had an Allison engine, as opposed to the Merlin on the B/C/D, and 4 20mm cannon instead of 4 x .50cal machine guns on the B/C and 6 x .50cal machine guns on the D)

If I notice any other errors I will post them up.
Moonknight, you make a mistake yourself. Read PhantomIIf4's thread here. http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthr...ght=developers

Your paragraph should read like this:

The P-51A was the USAAF name for the Mustang II and had the four .50inch machine guns.

The Mustang I had two .50 machine guns just under the spinner, firing through the propeller. Two more .50 in the wings along with four .30 machine guns making 8 machine guns in total. The early Mustang I planes also had a shorter carbouretta scoop above the engine. This IS NOT the plane in BoP.

By the way the USAAF name for the Mustang I is the XP-51 used for USAAF evaluation before North American was allowed to sell the Mustang I to the RAF.

I realise that...I was tired when writing that post, so please forgive that mistake. I am seriously anaemic right now.

Could you guys put in a patch where you could land and re-arm/re-fuel at the airfields?

I may be wrong, but I don't think there are any plans to provide pits for the bombers, or Italian fighters.
You are correct 109 and maybe the 190 as Anton stated.

I'd agree if it weren't for the fact the MS are a-holes and abandonded flight sticks and the flight sim market - which clearly show MS puts maxing revenue before quality.

Flight sticks don't appeal to the lowest common denominator - shareholders could use that extra half-cent, so bye bye sticks and flight sims.

MS says, "Go play the latest Halo"

Thumbs up Joystick Deadzone...

Dear Devs,

Already covered, but just to reinforce this NEEDS for a future update ) :

1- Decrease the Deadzone of Joysticks (or maybe can you make it adjustable??). Now, it is quite unplayable unless decreasing the sensitivity...

2- Create 8 "sight directions" instead of 4, controlable with the hat (with the Thrustmaster Flightstick X). Or maybe a panoramic or rotating seeing mode controlable with the hat with a reset button.

Thank you for your work!!

1) Do you really think this makes you unique in your 'expertise'?

2) Can you tell the difference between earth brown and ocean grey in B&W photos?

The Spitfire MkV entered service in early 1941 and the Land Temperate scheme was not replaced until August 1941.

The first production Spitfire MkVs were factory painted in the Land Temperate scheme, Dark Earth/Dark Green/Sky (Type S refers to the type of paint used - smooth instead of matt - not the colour. There were other Type S paints in use). Squadrons started reequipping with the MkV from February 1941. From 16th August 1941, day fighters were instructed to be repainted in the new Day Fighter Scheme of Ocean Grey/Dark Green/Medium Sea Grey. This was to be done at the first convenient opportunity. From September 1941 manufacturers had to supply new aircraft in the Day Fighter scheme.
