Sure you are welcome on our TS! You could also hop on and say hello, Ciupita...
Fair Player, H-J-aldrgud and Perniczech have been stopping by already to fly with us.
And: you could fly alongside Nelenna ;)





Kind Regards / MfG

Stupid question but I cant find this info anywhere. How the hell do you adjust the sights for bullet drop? Im playing historical and realistic and all I can do is to guess.

It's right there in the spawn screen. You select your zeroing, and that zeroing should work both horizontally (for making wing mounted guns hit the same spot) and vertically. Adjusting the sights mid-flight isn't possible.

So I got into the tank CBT... well, it's not bad. However I'm used to destroying tanks by shooting their tracks (hello FH2) which doesn't exactly work here ;D

It does, you just need bigger calibers to destroy them in one shot, when you shoot at them with a low caliber, they get damaged, eventually you will destroy them with 3 well placed shots or so. Im using the PZ4 with the 75mm gun and I destroy T34 tracks in one shot.

So far, things have been fun in CBT. I like the way I feel completely helpless against T-34s in my Pz III, like the germans did in early Operation Barbarossa.

How's the simulator battles on CBT? Do you have authentic tank scopes? Do you calculate the distance, then adjust the sight, or do you have to aim above?

Tonks is Gaijin's last chance of getting me hooked on WT again..

Simulator battles are cool, your standard view is basically you looking out of the commanders hatch. There's no armor penetration indicator (which is similar to WoT, only found in arcade battles), no range indication on units so you basically eyeball the distance and fire. There are respawns on simulator mode as well, but they're vehicle specific. Like in the arcade battles you may get 2 to 3 respawns per vehicle.

Got seven kills in one match in my Stug III Ausf. A on "Jungle" map. Oh, and a slight warning: if your cannon breech is damaged, and you fire, there's a chance you blow yourself up. Or it's a bug.

No authentic sights (so far) but I think they're working on it.

Wait what?! That sounds awesome! Do you get those stupid red "HERES THE ENEMY BEHIND THE BUSH" indicators like you get in arcade?

Note that the view from commanders hatch is EXACTLY like the one in FH2.

You know what i really miss in this game? the option to put yourself on a fixed altitude. might not be accurate for the time, but it sure would be nice to have. Its kind of annoying sometimes while bombing for instance that you always climb.
