    There's a great story in Gunther Rall's autobiography where he talks about testing the F-104 out of Edwards AFB. They'd fly them low with the Balkenkreuz markings and confuse everyone in southern California.

    My "Aircraft" folder just got a little bigger lol. Some gorgeous wallpapers in here! My current wallpaper: Have quite a thing for the Spitfire at the moment, been reading quite a bit of material about her as well as getting to grips with the LF Mk.IX in DCS. Some other shots from my wallpaper folder are in order however! Hope you like them :). By the way, @Firefly do you have any higher resolution shots of those pictures you listed? The E model 109 and the Spit look stunning!

    Aviation Art?

    Curious if any of you gents have any aviation artwork hanging on the walls? I confess I'm a sucker for stuff like this, if I bought every piece I went "ooohhhh" and "aaaaahhhh" at I'd probably need a second mortgage and a small section of the national gallery gallery to hang them in . I've got one relatively "cheap" print from the folks at Aces High in Buckinghamshire (next to RAF Halton where I used to live), they had a signing event and I managed to get lots of former RAF chaps from WWII service (BoB and onwards) to sign the print for me so it's a bit special. I imagine most, if

    Aviation Art?

    Sure, I’ll share what I’ve got up. I do have one Fw-190 from II./JG1 with a fragment down for repair and another from Pearl Harbor (The Last Torpedo) that needs a new frame. Sorry for the glare, the sun finally came out today. Here’s one from my dad’s collection. I’m expecting a larger one with a poem he wrote. And lastly, pixel art from the airframes I’ve flown for the Army.

    Aviation Art?

    How funny.... I just came home from Hobby Lobby... I had an old version of "Assi" Hahn's airplane re-framed. I got it at Love field back in the 70's when I was just a private pilot as they had an aviation art gallery there in the terminal. I think that it is still there, I have not been over there in years. I have been collecting "Robert Taylor" prints for over 30 years and I own almost all of his works involving the Bf-109, about 16 prints so far. You can see "Abbeville Boys" over the mantle. I only have a couple on the walls because this house was painted by a moron... a MAROON wall...

    Again some great missions at finnish virtual loose deuce together with @Greif, @=GenMarkof007=, @loopy, @Wittmann and @Vonrd. Also @Dudley was active in parallel but driving a tank 1st impression are from attacking a station, where Gen flew the 110 and all others took FW-190, most with the A6 modification with 3x250kg (what is nice and accurate load out btw). We were pretty seccussfull and on our way home we even shot down 2 U-2s after Dudley reported them (but I no recording of that action) 2nd group of pics is of the last mission, where Vonrd and me flew Ju-52 in a paradrop missi

    Sadly I have none. "She who must be obeyed" has the cornered the market on our available wall space. She has a penchant for Rocco & Neoclassicism works. She & I have decidedly different tastes in decor. This is my idea of an ideal living room. This is hers Lets just say our house looks allot more like her idea than mine

  25. This will be a tanks only mission PVP, Soviet T34-43/Shermans against Tiger tanks. However, the Germans will be facing a lot of AI out in the field in addition to Soviet human players. I am in hopes that this will offset the Tiger advantage to a large extent. In addition, the terrain is such that it limits the Tigers big gun advantage with a lot of rectangular fields surrounded by strips of trees and brush. This limits the range advantage and gives the Soviets an opportunity to sneak in closer. Front lines will be the river, however some Soviets have been spotted on the east side. Prelim

  29. New from the front. Der KreigenBlatt The Russian winter continues to take its toll on our men and machines. Our forces at Schindelsmertz made good advances early in the day. Territory around Peskovatka was under our control. It was not to be. Overwhelming Soviet forces swept around from the south. Our brave men put up a good fight but were eventually over run by Soviet forces. Schindelsmertz was lost. Although our forces in the south were greatly outnumber they held out. We were able to get some planes in the air. These few dealt several blows to the enemy as well

    connection help

    Finally got it. When I updated Windows for some reason I couldn't get the internet through my router. I could get through with a hotspot off my phone, so I knew it wasn't the computer. But I forgot what I set my router info to and had to do a factory reset and reconfigure everything. After that I got internet but ran into this connection issue with IL-2. Considering I could log into the game I figured it wasn't a computer firewall issue (after pretty much eliminating it as a variable in every way possible) so I went into the router and disabled the firewall there. Ta-DAAA! Boom, I'm in.

    AMD vs Nvidia GPU

    I am a Nvidia guy mainly because I have always been one & have never had a problem with it. Running an RTX 2080 TI right now but will be upgrading to a 3080 in the near future. You asked about BoX specifically. In the interest of transparency after the last IL2 upgrade I can no longer get BoX to load. It crashes on boot but I am reasonably confident that has nothing to do with my GPU.
