Rubbish 109 Pilot

Recommended Posts

Have to say, it felt VERY uncomfortable having that big armoured backrest blocking everything - was expecting to be bounced pretty much the whole time. 

Got a nasty fright when the Yak and the Ishak turned up! 

More than anything, I’m amazed I landed the damn thing lol!

You know you can remove the top part of the armored  backrest right?

The sight on your 6 gets much much better.

Locked by server! Although it was interesting to see what the real guys flew with! You certainly had to be brave to be a 109 pilot ;)

Aaah yes the usual case of server being realer than reality.

In reality it was less of a problem as you could move your head more than what is allowed in il2 and you have 2 eyes.

But lots of 109 pilots removed the top of the backrest because of better vision on 6.

I can tell you that that feeling exists even without the armor plate there.  You always feel paranoid.  And just about the time you start to feel comfortable you get complacent and then you get bounced.  And then you're paranoid all over again.
