    My dad was a tank gunner and his tank was also "Shanty Irish"! I found a P51 that was also Shanty Irish but didn't have any luck with Mr. Maley. M5A1 “Shanty Irish” 12th Armored Division Rouffach, France, February 1945 1st Lt. Gilbert O’Brien, 357th FG, P-51B “Shanty Irish”

    HP Reverb G2 VR

    Initial Impressions HP Reverb G2 System: Windows 10 Home: 10.0.1.19042 Build 19042 Processor: i9-10900K @ 3.7 10 Cores Ram: 32 GB GPU: Geforce RTX 3080 Previous VR: HP VR Headset VR1000-010 Windows Mixed Reality Headset 1440 X 1440 Note the headset I still consider very good for a first gen headset G2 is third+ gen? The following is my initial impressions. I drove 45 minutes in Assetto Corsa at Thompson Road The headset is very light and extremely comfortable Headset IPD adjustment is mechanical on the headset!! Speakers and sound!! Awesome!! Large sweet spot, and even the areas outside the sweet spot are much more clear, if that makes sense. All colors and the environment are sharp and crisp!! IMO as good as my monitor running at 3840x2160 @ 60hz I can easily read the road makers at speed, the tiny 50 meter boards clearly stand out. The pit crew I can read the tiniest wording on their suits. Picture perfect. Tracking dead on!! Will not make me drive better, but at least I will see the crash coming. If you have questions go ahead and PM me.

    So recently I remember my grandfather’s best friend and next door neighbor flew P38s and P39s in the war. His name was Joseph B. Maley. He was a part of the 32nd Air Operations “the spitting wolfhounds.” So I started diving deep into Internet searching and to my surprise, I found an AWESOME picture of him posing on his P38 “Shanty Irish”. Was wondering if anyone could help me out with finding markings or paint colors? Seeing I only have one black and white photo, I feel like there’ll be a lot of guessing. But would love to recreate it and fly it in his honor. I feel bad that I was too young at the time to really appreciate talking to him and can only wish to be able to pick his brain about his time in aviation.

    Official JG1 Skins

    All, As apart of on our ongoing Paint Pack Revision Project, we are posting new Bf 109 skins, created by @Vonrd for use by Stab/JG 1 and II./JG 1. All active pilots within Stab and II. Gruppe have been included: https://jg1.org/oesau/roster/#stab https://jg1.org/oesau/roster/#ii-gruppe All Bf 109 variants are included in this pack, with the clear exception of the Bf 109G-6 Late. The Bf 109G-6 Late was released as this pack was being compiled. It will be added in an update. Please note that all new Bf 109 skins within this paint pack should replace all previous Bf 109 skins found in past paint packs. New skins can always be identified through their v_!_JG1_[aircraft folder]_[pilot name].dds naming format. Past skins do not have to be removed, should you choose to keep them. However, we will be weening ourselves off them as new skins are released. The Fw 190 and the Bf 110 are being worked on now by @Heinrich and Vonrd. Some key features of these Bf 109 skins: All Bf 109 skins are 2K, and include an alpha layer. RLM colors were followed as much as possible. 3 to 5 distinct camouflage patterns were created for each Bf 109 variant, ensuring that no two skins look identical. All Stab and II./JG 1 pilots who had personal emblems have had those markings added to the port side of their aircraft. Command personnel have been given extra permissions with regards to markings. A serious attempt was made to restrict people to historical-like designs. Note that Commanders will generally have white tails. Adjutants and Gruppe officers will generally have white rudders. Pilots will generally have a yellow under-cowlings and a yellow triangle on their tail. There are no swastikas on any Bf 109 skin, nor are there "fastikas" (fake swastikas). There are also no markings that would violate our Dicta (code of conduct document). There are no theatre markings present on any Bf 109 skin. JG 1 is emulating a Western Front daylight fighter unit. Finally, Defense of the Reich bands (red), and the Oesau emblem are used on all aircraft post November 1943. Should anyone have any questions, let me know!

    Remembrance Day - Lest We Forget!

    My favorite poem from the First World War, posted in remembrance for Veterans Day / Armistice Day: http://www.greatwar.co.uk/poems/ewart-alan-mackintosh-in-memoriam.htm In Memoriam, by Ewart Alan Mackintosh (killed in action 21st November 1917 aged 24) So you were David’s father, And he was your only son, And the new-cut peats are rotting And the work is left undone, Because of an old man weeping, Just an old man in pain, For David, his son David, That will not come again. Oh, the letters he wrote you, And I can see them still, Not a word of the fighting, But just the sheep on the hill And how you should get the crops in Ere the year get stormier, And the Bosches have got his body, And I was his officer. You were only David’s father, But I had fifty sons When we went up in the evening Under the arch of the guns, And we came back at twilight - O God! I heard them call To me for help and pity That could not help at all. Oh, never will I forget you, My men that trusted me, More my sons than your fathers’, For they could only see The little helpless babies And the young men in their pride. They could not see you dying, And hold you while you died. Happy and young and gallant, They saw their first-born go, But not the strong limbs broken And the beautiful men brought low, The piteous writhing bodies, They screamed “Don’t leave me, sir”, For they were only your fathers But I was your officer. . . . On the evening of 16th May, 1916 Lieutenant Ewart Alan Mackintosh and Second Lieutenant Mackay of the 5th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders led a raid on the German trenches in the sector of the front line north-west of Arras. By the end of the night there were sixteen British casualties, which included fourteen wounded and two killed. One of the two dead soldiers was Private David Sutherland. Private David Sutherland has no known grave. His name is commemorated in Bay 8 of the Arras Memorial to the Missing at Faubourg d'Amiens military cemetery in Arras.

    HP Reverb G2 VR

    HP begun to deliver the first Reverb G2 preorders and first user reviews are online. Looks like a great VR headset is upcoming in particular for flight sims. Me am still waiting to get mine delivered and am mostly interested in how the better visuals and smaller FOV of the Reverb G2 effects the experience in VR in comparison to the Pimax8KX. For the JG1 comrades located in the US: Microsoft offers the Reverb G2 @ 599,99 $ in their store ( currently out of stock ), which is a pretty good price for the piece...keep a look: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/hp-reverb-g2-vr-headset/93QB262D0514?activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab Last week I had a call with the HP customer service in Germany and they told me, that there are far more preorders, than the production could handle at once. So at the moment new orders need to wait for the production, to be delivered. Here´s a longer more detailed Q & A ... And a quick through the lens video of MRTV via Twitter: https://mobile.twitter.com/mixedrealityTV/status/1324800170693939201

    I know these have been posted before (maybe even in this thread). I mean... some of the video is shown on our jg1.org splash page. But, it's cool to be reminded of it. Richthofen Film Part 1 https://collections.ushmm.org/search/catalog/irn1002567 Richthofen Film Part 2 https://collections.ushmm.org/search/catalog/irn1002566 The film is not in order. It starts in 1918, and jumps back to 1917, for example. But there are some great shots of the German aces, Jasta 6, Jasta 11, and various aerodromes.

    Jason_Williams Producer 24204 3908 posts Location:Las Vegas, NV USA Report post Posted 3 hours ago Guys, Ok we're releasing TC as Official this Friday the 20th. Sadly, I haven't had time to evaluate all these skins yet, but I will do so after the launch madness subsides and I can look at each one closer. Thank you to all who made these and submitted them. I promise I will look more closely soon. First priority was get the core game ready. Many of these are really cool looking. Jason Quote

    Remembrance Day poems In Flanders Fields by John McCrae In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

    Moxy, can we please get more and especially more effective AA on the airfields? With the airfields so close to the front and no AA (it pufs and that's it) vulching is an easy option for suppressing the enemy, but what is worse it takes away the fun (I guess not just for me). The sides are not always evenly covered with pilots and when even the base is not save what is the use for being in the game? Also it leads to a fighter against fighter scenario while the fun in TaS is to support directly the tanks and do some fighting above the front. If AA draws to much on the server maybe you can add a rule that forbids enemy a/c within X kms/miles from the airfield like they do in Combat Box.

    Battle for Schmidt

    I already mentioned this in the debriefing in TS yesterday, but I had a great evening flying with the SCG and JG1 pilots. Because I would consider myself a beginner (WW2) pilot, the PvE missions are much more enjoyable for me as I actually have the time to experiment and learn flying the aircraft. When we fly PvP, I simply get eliminated before being able to try to improve and I make no progress at all. I hope that leaves enough of a challenge for the other more seasoned pilots when we fly PvE.

    What are you guys watching?

    You can reference two Navaids, like the intersection of ARC II-1-5 050° and II-1-6 220°. Or the simpler single fix like RSBN 04, 120° for 120km. Figure out where the good sections of roads are and then figure out the marker. The pilot might need to fly high for reception and find the area to descend. Or, using the map to draw those intersections, can use pilotage to navigate, once in the area.
