The fact that you think IL2 is ultra-realistic shows how skewed your idea of a "simulator" is. War Thunder is only slightly better than Ace Combat when it comes to realism.

War Thunder's fun, but calling it a sim is pants on head retarded. Plus, its physics is shit.

Dogfighting anything on your own in the Fishbed is very difficult, I get very few kills while flying solo. No, I'm not shit, because whenever I fly with a friend (said friend in picture) we kick ass. Neither of us have been shot down in combat in the Fishbed yet. Granted, we haven't engaged any F-15s yet, but still, we're a pretty killer team.

>>23089412

The burger bias is in the form of the one trick pony, the Bearcat. And that's it. Where all Yaks from 2-4 and all Tier 5 Russian jets are clearly superior to any other. The MiG-15s wipe the floor of any Sabre, Panther, and Meteor.

Even facing MiG-9s around the 6.3 BR range is fucking insulting. I can't even fly my 109K4 without facing a handful of those over the course of a half dozen games. Not to mention you can't even effectively use an ME262, since you're automatically tiered up against Korean war tier jets. It's just stupid.

>>23089511
i do agree on that first part, even though i fly UK
>hello there little tempest, lets play a pit of... oh, MiG9's. five of them

but the part with the 262, is more tricky. it really dosnt have an equal. it is clearly superior to the first gen jet fighters (P-80, Yak-15, meteor), but is is clearly inferior to the korean jets. such a plane is going to be really hard to balance

>It is my understanding that it is impossible to use your mouse as joystick in DCS. Can’t anyone create a mod that allows this?! I strongly insist that you shouldn’t have to buy equipment worth hundreds of dollars to enjoy a game, or simulator. I’ve played many, many other games where you fly aircraft with the mouse and never had any issues with it.

>Currently players must play with very challenging keyboard controls or go buy a joystick despite there being a great alternative. Because of what… blatant elitism or an evil scheme to sell joysticks?

>If DCS allowed mouse controls then it would instantly become that much more attractive to anyone who is new to flight sims and doesn’t already have a joystick they are happy with. If you don’t want one, if you can’t afford one, while you’re saving for one, if yours breaks, if your desktop is small… and why the hell not? Implementation should be easy.

It actually does put you right in the fight but it's not the same shit as for example with spawning 8 tanks/planes/soldiers on each side of map and throwing them up against each other.

I hate arcade "sims" like WT and WoT, purely due to the shit community they create. Despite obvious unrealistic aspects for balance and fun, you end up with a shit community who thinks that something's qualities in a game have any bearing on how it actually performed in reality.

On top of that, it makes it impossible to search more obscure planes/tanks without running into a shitty thread from one of their forums.

>>23090157
I know. I just hate the communities of those games so much.

Wargaming actually did something right by allowing you to mute the game chat in WoT, making the game so much more bearable to play.

Wargaming in particular I don't like because they try to insist there's an element of "realism" to their games, when it's very clearly an arcade game. Thus, you get their full-retard community insisting that anything Wargaming says about the war is fact.

WT has a similar issue, thanks to its "simulator" mode (in reality just relaxed arcade elements).

Unless you're simulating the entire front, and all of the air, ground, and (most importantly) logistical operations it entails, you're not a simulator.

yeah. pretty much why i usually stick to arcade. just some honest plane action. i know it is not a simulator, i know the FM in arcade is stupid and i know you cant do loops at low altitude in a medium bomber, but all that just dissappears after drowning an enemy La with 20mm cannonfire after a 2 min dogfight in a sexy, sexy spitfire Vc

thing is Russian tank are bias mostly on the penetration of their gun, every shell and gun have 20MM more than their real statistic... That's why Panther and tiger get rekt by T34 from so far...

>>23090818
in arcade, yes. the KV1 is a fucking monster in arcade too (if you fight stug3 and pz3/4's)

but in simulator and realistic battles, their 57mm guns bounce off the tigers side even at point blank range.

shot placement, over pen. Use HEAT next time. Firing into the "ass" is not going to help you. you either want to knock the crew out, or ammo rack if you want fast kills. This isn't WoT where the engine will share health with the rest of the tank.
>>
>>23090929
I just thought shooting the engine with a 75mm shell might damage it, keeping the tank from flanking me, but nope. also shooting into the side of the turret didn't do a thing.

i bet it was a short 75 wasn't it
standard armor piercing on short 75 cannot penetrate T-50 period
just use HEAT amo
>>
>>23090952
All the shots went through, the game is nice enough to tell you, but i must have missed every crew member/module in the tank. Had more luck with the smaller, faster firing guns because if you miss a module by 1mm you have a quick follow up shot.

Most simulators have that as an option, but concealing yourself and spotting is a huge part of warfare no matter if it's on the ground in the air.
>>
>>23090878
Yeah, but I rather go hull-down and one-shot kill them at closer range. Either the drivers hatch or the turret below the gun. Russian turrets are always good to shot at.
>>
>>23091028
I did historical for the good ol russkie vs germans. russians seemed to win most of them, mostly because every russian was driving a t-50. I also figured out that it uses your plane rank as well. Was a bad game when I had a short barreled stug fighting t-34's.

you're half-right, the Russians metal fabrication was not as complex as the Germans, basically the Ruskies just used cast steel and everything was just "that'll do" to crank out as many tanks as possible, which inevitably led to shoddy workmanship.

Russian tanks were really good on paper, the 45mm gun comes to mind, but once it got through the communist beuracracy and shitty manufacturing techniques to cut corners the shells would shatter on impact, thus making them next to useless for penetration of even Pz3 hulls.

This isn't modeled in any videogame, which is why the Russian tanks always kick ass in any game you play (except for Barbarossa to Berlin) where none of these issues come into play.

German tanks were undoubtebly well made, but they spent so much time making them that by the time one Pz4, Stug, or Tiger was made, dozens of T-34s or Shermans were put together. (the Americans did have a nice production standard, they weren't quite as desperate as the Russians.) and yeah, putting a 17lber in a Sherman was a match made in heaven. Brits really can be genius, nobody likes to admit it because of how in-your-face they are about their sporadic brilliance, but when they do something right, man is it nice.
>>
>>23092099
And next up for something everyone already knows....
>>
>>23092099

Why does everyone pretend that the Firefly was the only upgunned Sherman and that the Brits were geniuses for it?

The Americans had basically the exact same thing with the 76mm Sherman.
>>
>>23092143
I'm no fan of the Firefly, but I thought it was because it was a good gun on a good platform.
>>
>>23092143
Because they had to reinvent the hydraulics that came with it, and no, the 76mm was not on the same level as the 17lbr. It was close, but not equal.

I do however, somewhat agree...

The Israelis also up-gunned their Shermans to compete with the enemy T-54/5s and called it the "Super Sherman" I think it just goes to show how versatile a platform the Sherman provided.
>>
>>23092167

Yeah it was. Same as the 76mm Sherman.

"Overall, the 76mm M1 was comparable to the 17pdr. Performance was roughly equal with the 17pdr enjoying better penetration qualities, while the 76mm weapon was more accurate."

>>23092177

Right, it was a nice product they ended up with. I like the Firefly. I'm just saying that everyone pretends like the US Army were "hurrrr we stoopid, we use shit gun" and that the Brits were geniuses for doing it.

>>
>>23092188
Well, maybe that's some of that in-your-face rubbing off on you as I said in my post.

I suppose it's just impressive they fit the 17lbr gun which wasn't designed for it into it.

The 76mm nobody cared about because it was specifically designed for it, they didn't make any cuts to the design or changes to it because it was pretty much new anyways, meanwhile the Tommies could put better use to the surplus of cannons they had, the Yanks were producing cannons specifically to fit onto tanks.

That's basically my own reasoning as to why the improvised gun is more celebrated, IDK TBH, and yeah I guess I agree.

The German made the rookie mistake of dogfighting with a brit.

Biiiiiiig mistake Fritz.

I heard that basically only the noobs who were hungry for the kill would do that, meanwhile the vets would boom-n-zoom the brits, with the only counter the brits being able to do is just to turn into them, not being able to get their guns to bear just to close the amount of time the Germans had to like up a shot.

I think it's more because they were more fanatical than their counterparts, take Michael Wittman as an example.

He refused to pull off the lines to train new tank crews, instead insisted on going to do battle with the enemy where he argued he'd be more useful.

the problem was, that the german - once entered the british airspace over london - got only 10 minutes to fight. After these 10 minutes, they wouldn't have had enough fuel to fly home.
They didn't gone into dogfights against spits as far as I know (because boom-n-zoom was already the established tactic against allied fighters) and main opponent of the messerschmidt was the hurricane.

the nazis tried to give the german airforce more time to fight with the me110, but this was an utter failure.

You gotta give credit where it's due, they conquered a shit load of modern European armies, if the Brits didn't have that Channel, they'd have been fucked as well.

The Ruskies only survived because of lend-lease, I mean, the incredible amount of progress they made, fighting through each army, through each yard of clay, you can't just pass that off as incompetence by their enemies, you gotta have some guts and some brains to pull that off.

They just didn't have the production to compete with the likes of the US and the Soviets, who had no qualms with destroying civilian targets.

attack russia so late, starting in late juni instead of early april or late march.

>>
>>23092758

Okay first of all, April and March means that Russia is mud. They cannot invade until May at the earliest. And they were scheduled to kick off in May, but were delayed by rain and having to clean up the Balkans.

But yes, they should have started a month sooner and would have been at the gates of Moscow a month earlier. That was a big mistake.

But to say that they should have launched in March/April shows that you don't know what you're talking about.

>>
>>23092846
Yeah, that's part of the reason why Wittman didn't want to go.

It's also because Hitler didn't want to interfere with his fanatics too much, unlike the allies who'd force their Aces, Medal of honor recipients to go back to the States and train new units with their real-world experience.

Just wasn't as much of a priority for the Germans, I suppose.

Well, he wanted peace, Hitler asked for peace about a dozen times in the span of 1940-42, basically promising to release northern France, Belgium, Netherlands, Norway and Denmark in order to stop fighting, but the Brits were probably suspicious of him, seeing as he claimed he had no other territorial demands and then went into Poland (the ethic German population being ostracized within Poland probably had something to do with that.) so I can somewhat understand the British for not wanting a peace deal.

The reason Barbarossa was a neccesity is because Germany was on the verge of starving, and so without the peace deal and trade to be established with the Brits, he had to go into Russia (who was a threat to him anyways) so they went in...

Still, can't help but wonder what a world we'd live in if that peace deal went through.

I wager Germany would have degraded after Hitler's death, probably turning into something akin to North Korea... Though the main reason they're so shitty is because they don't trade with anyone, if Nazi Germany was allowed to trade their goods for food, maybe the whole thing could have been avoided.

Oh well, the Meth Hitler was on probably influenced some of his decision making. lol

Hitler talked about peace since he was in power and he brought only an arm race at first and a war a little bit later - of course no one would believe him, it took the naive brits to give him what he wanted. The france would had beaten him up 1935 when he marched into the rheinland with his pathetic 100.000 soldiers, no tanks, no planes, no ships, no big guns.
These peace talks after the fall of france was a hope go gain a cheap victory over these appeasement brits, fortunately - it didn't worked out.

Barbarossa wasn't necessary - the soviet staved the ukrainian people to death to sell the food to german.

I'd say it was an ok bluff, he did conquer most of Europe in a small amount of time, I'd have taken him seriously, Churchill, the drunk lunatic, obviously didn't care what price to pay, he wanted to squash Germany. He did, and he ended up paying for it with the entire Britsh Empire.

Source? My Sources tell me that food went into the Russian mainland to feed Russians, not Germans.

As far as I know there was little food being traded between the Soviets and Germany simply because there wasn't enough to go around within the Soviet union.

>>
>>23093418
sorta agree (the APCR thing is a fair point)

but HEAT does produce more one-shotting,

hit the ammo: kaboom
hit the fuel tanks: 5 second pause, kaboom

where as the regular AP shot doesn't give the same consistency with the results, at least that's what I found with my experience.
>>
>>23093458

Yes, but heavier AP shells do more damage than lighter APCR. HEAT is just shitsauce on everything basically. Normal HE is only good on the russian howitzers and thats basically it.

>>23093467

What are you using HEAT in though?
>>
>>23093474
I'm using the 75mm short barrel HEAT.

to clarify what I mean, an AP shell might give you a one-shot due to the fact it bounces around and hits compartments/crew, but a HEAT shell will give you a consistent destruction of the target area.

So basically, I go with AP if I can't hit a vital area (Gastank, Ammo stowage) but I go with HEAT if I can.

Seems to work pretty well for me at least...

But Hitler tried to solve the issue diplomatically, he tried time and time again to get the land the German empire lost to Poland, in order to set up a rail line through Danzig into Konigsberg.

Are you saying the Germans should have just accepted the injustices being placed on them? If I were German, I'd have been pretty pissed as well.

>>23093754
>Churchill never trusted the 'Huns', by right. Bombing Rotterdam and Warshaw into a pile of rubble, breaking and cheat on every treaty negotiated before the war and dishonor the royal navy - surrender wasn't an option.
I'll give you Wasawa, there was a lot of bad blood between the Germans and the Poles. Rotterdam was only after the RAF started attacking civilian targets (on Churchills orders) which the Germans responded with Bombing London, and other civilian targets.

I don't understand what you mean about "dishonouring the Royal Navy" are you talking about the battle for the Atlantic? Or are you saying the act of peace would bring dishonor to Britain?

Either way I'd say no, Hitler wasn't asking for a surrender from the Brits, he was asking for peace and a trade deal, even offered to release most of the nations he rolled over. I'm not saying he was a better man than Churchill for wanting peace, I'm saying history is not a black and white fairy tale.

>>23093754
>The same fate as Putins russia share now, piss off people who sell you food and you won't have any.
You got that backwards, modern Russia is not hurting on food, it did hurt Polish farming sales, and could lead to a collapse within Poland (basically without Putin buying up Polish Agriculture, the farmers working the land have nobody to sell to, thus go bust on their loans and cause a crash of the Polish economy) I'd find you the article I read detailing most of this, but I suspect I'll only make one more counter post as I'm tired, and going to sleep soon.

>>23093754
>The bolsheviks was the fascists arch enemy, it would have come to a war, sooner or later.
Agreed, I however think it had more to do with the value of the land, rather than the ideology of the enemy.

For instance, if you yourself are facing starvation, nobody will/can trade with you (The Americans and Canadians at this time were the worlds breadbasket, and the war with Britain was refusing trade with them, the Soviets had no food to spare as Stalin was regulating food stores away from farmers in order to maintain control) this leads you to only one option, fight or starve.

Obviously he chose to fight, the ideological differences were just icing on the cake, he could keep his troops motivated through anti-bolshevik propaganda, meanwhile solving his food crisis.

My point is, if the Brits accepted Peace with the Fascists, the Fascists would have been able to feed themselves through trade - goods for food.

That was his original plan, which is why he was so adamant about peace.

>Neither was any deal the germans offered as long as the Nazis or Hitler stayed in power.
I want to gloss over this, because it's interesting to me...

You damn the Axis powers for waging an ideological war to the east, yet say it's just for Churchill to do the same? I'm not trying to put words in your mouth, just merely trying to understand what it is you're getting at... Because to me, Churchill is blown up as a hero but through his diary and the personal accounts of his staff, he sounded more like a drunk lunatic. Wanting to use Chemical warfare (banned by the Geneva convention) on Germany is just one example, thank god his staff talked him out of that...

Oh that's ok. I hit an H6K with 3 or 4 RS-82 rockets from my I-16 and it shrugged them off with no damage. Secret Japanese deflector shielding...

Who knows where Hitler would have stopped, there was still the Elsass and the 'shame' brought by the 'stab in the back' from 1918.
By going to war against Poland, he crossed a line he should had.

>Rotterdam
Rotterdam was bombed because the capitulation was a few minutes 'too late', still - no reason to destroy an old city. Such is not an act of war, it's an act of barbarism.

These bombing escalated when Göbbels wanted to bomb (after coventry) one city after another into the ground until the brits capitulated, the nazis started it, let them have it.

Don't forget that the germans bombed London once in the first WW with Zeppelins, the brits know exactly what they can expect.

>Peace
Of course he wanted peace, he know that the would have to deal with resistance and he would be better off being the only nation in whole europe with an army. He would have turned the treaty of versailles around and punished whole europe for the 'shame of 1918'.

>Food
The EU will help and the EU is obligated to help the farmers, and it wouldn't be the first time.
The EU is destroying on a regular basis million tons of food to keep the prices stable - this one will be no exception

>Food deals with the soon-Allies
Or stop war, step back and regret, but Hitlers ego was greater than the well-being of his nation.
No deals with fanatics, fascism, islamism, communism, fundamentalism and any other kind have to die.
No deal with nazis, none - either capitulate or die.

>Churchill
Churchill was the reaction of the last remaining free nation against the totalitarianism on the european continent.
Would you make deals with Nazis?
Would you make deals with Islamists?
No, I trust them to do every wicked and sick thing you can imagine - and they have proven their barbaric spirit. I'm better prepared for everything they will throw at me. And the same thing thought Churchill about the and was right about it.

Anywa, good nigth!

Yo. OP here. Seems the fucking weekend brings out the edgy nazi hitleryouth. If you guys wanna play warthunder (the original topic of the thread). Hit me up http://steamcommunity.com/id/soisawc/

>>23094387

Fuck you OP. Would have played with you until this post. And I've been monitoring this thread from the beginning.
>>
>>23094387
How am I "edgy Nazi Hitler youth?" what because I don't buy into fairy tales of "de evil nazis!1"

Fuck off, if you can't handle real history, don't comment on it.

>>23094280
Well, I suppose it's just time to agree to disagree, I base my historical knowledge on documented events, I'll capitulate the Rotterdam point to you, but only after you admit that the Germans did not start targeting civilian targets first, that was the actions of Churchill.

The EU destroying food isn't going to help the current crisis Poland is facing due to their sanctions on Russia. I don't fully agree with what Putin is doing in Ukraine, but then again I wouldn't want one of my country's jugular's to be torn away from me, so It's a bit of a tricky situation. To me it seems like more Western fear mongering because they have to sell the American people war, because that's all their money is based on now. Such is as the fleeting days of Rome.

I will remind you of Legion Condor in Spain and the bombing of Guernica, later Barcelona.
After Rotterdam, no one cared anymore about civilian casualties.

>poland cannot into apple sale
No, but the EU will help, thats the reason why we pay taxes; to help our neighbours in need.

Putin think that the nations in the Russian periphery are Russians property and have no sovereignty, instead living in brotherhood together he want to rule with boots and tanks.
The Ukrainian people made it clear since and pre 2004 that they want to become a part of the EU, like every east european nation who had to live under the terror of the reds. They run away from russia like a child from her abusive father, raping her for decades.
Putin successfully split the nation in 2 parts, in ethnic russians and everything that is not russian. He created a cult about a moral and racial superior christian orthodox russian aryan who is better than everybody else. If you disagree, you are a jew, paid by the CIA or a brainwashed victim of the degeneracy of the west, also a homosexual and fascist.
The cold war isn't really over for these people, they think they got backstabbed - economical plundered by the winners and military humiliated but never defeated in the field by another army and now it's time to reclaim their position in the world order.
It's all about a broken ego of a nation and now it is time to get them down on the ground. No 3.reich - russian edition.

I would like this game better if the American planes could actually hold their own against germans and ruskies. As it is I'm stuck with a bunch of slow turning, poorly armed flying coffins that don't even get the benefit of extra durability. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't american planes have a reputation for carrying their pilots home alive after taking tons of punishment?

Damn biased russians

Didn't ze germans bomb civilians at Guernica?

I quite liked some of them. Some of them have a lot of gun for their tier and if i remember right climb pretty damn quickly. Stop turnfighting
>>
>>23096096
American planes are really good, you just have to play them differently. You never, ever, under any circumstances turn with someone. You have to leverage a height advantage, as Americans in general hold energy through turns better than any other nation. Then you dive in, take one pass on a guy, and dive out before he can react. A Hellcat with a height advantage over a Zero, and a good pilot will win ten times out of ten because the Zero can't follow it and can't get away.

>>23096096
but they are good (not great or OP like Rus)

stop trying to fly them like fighters, my 6 .50 cals rape ass
>>
>>23096135

Yeah, but one pass with 6 .50s isn't going to damage anything. I've dumped entire magazines of .50 into russian planes and I almost never bring home a kill, most of my kills are from the 37mm on the Cobras
>>
>>23096146
fly realistic battles

but yeah russian planes are hard to kill you may have to take a few passes or really focus on convergence of fire

The whole "russian bias" meme is parroted by those who have never played historical or realism mode. The only place the russian planes are good is in arcade, most of them completely and irrevocably suck complete ass in the modes where actual flight physics and limited ammunition are involved
>>
>>23096164

I would ply historical or realism if I could find a game with tier 3 American planes within a reasonable timeframe but why wait 15 minutes when I can just get an arcade match in 30 seconds?

Please let em know if I'm being retarded here, but I just can't find any historic games as American

>no fatigue or stress simulation
U wot m8, all of your stats are affected by fatigue including resistance to G forces, accuracy and response time in realism mode
