I was flying the P47 a bit... against AI. The bad guys will definitely need a cannon shot to hurt it bad. It is a tank. taxiing is a pleasure, unlike other planes who suck on the ground...   >:D

they released a 2nd patch last night,, just found out.....:

IL-2 BOX: We just pushed a small hotfix that removes the non-working FC1 aircraft entries from the game menu for players who don't own them.
apparently FC1 are some aircraft in the WWI sim. Flying Circus.

Spent about 30mins flying the jug in a fast paced DF server. it is a tank. And surprising is very agile in a DF. I'm still debating on the damage of the 50cals. Playing with the convergence is key here. What I did hit with a solid burst did do the job. Overall happy with it..And it's sexy in a Nmf skin.

I was home for Weds evening, yesterday and today. First thing I did was hop on and patch up for flight ops.

Weds: "The other GreyWolf" made a skin for me, I loaded it up and went on the Berloga DF server to try my hand at Jug vs breathers. Went 7 and 1, and my one was a low alt turn fight vs a late model 109. He had to earn it, over 3 turns to break my 180 line, 6 to kill me. That gunsight though......190's would dive on me, I'd make them overshoot, then make a long distance kill on them. Love it!!

Thurs: Flew with Mo briefly against AI, we killed 5 enemy planes, 2 110's for me, 2 FW190's and a Stuka for Mo. Lovely aircraft!!

I have yet to go after anything on the ground with it, but if killing fighters is an indication of just how lethal this thing really is then, well, game over Fritz!!

My boat is still in drydock up in JAX, I am hoping we'll be in the water next week and home by next weekend. Could be a pipe dream, but if you see me then you'll know I'm back!
