  5. Sorry I didnt see this before, Im not usually on this thread, but a bit of further info if you are interested. 603 is city of Edinburgh Squadron. AS my local squadron I have an interest and bought their official biography. Peter Pease has many entries covering his joining the squadron ( from 5 OTU) on the 6th of July 1940 until his death. He was a great friend of Richard Hillary who wrote " The Last Enemy" He was killed by escort fighters when pressing home an attack on He 111 bombers of KG26. here are excerpts from Leutnant Roderich Cescottis account who was in one of the He111s " A few tommies suceeded in penetrating our fighter escort. I saw a Spitfire dive steeply through our escort, level out and close on our formation. It opened fire , from ahead and to the right, and its tracers streaked towards us. At that moment a Me109, which we had not seen before, appeared behind the spitfire and we saw rounds striking the spitfires tail. But the tommy continued his attack, coming straight for us, and his rounds slashed into our aircraft. At the last moment the spitfire pulled up and passed very close over the top of us. Then it rolled onto its back as though out of control, and went down steeply, trailing black smoke." Peter Pease was 22. R.I. P In 1990 the crash site was excavated and parts of his spitfire are displayed at Nutkins Shoreham Aviation Museum.
  6. Thanks arthur , makes the game playable for me now , need to get some practice in. Gypsy see here for installing jgsme for BOX. I downloaded the file and put it into my battle of stalingrad main folder, there is a pdf guide in the download with instructions. I prefered a seperate install for il246 and BOX https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/36622-is-there-a-tutorial-to-use-jsgme/

  12. Hi and welcome back, unfortunately flight hotas now seems to fall into two categories, affordable but with quality issues or very expensive. I did a bit of research recently as I was thinking about replacing my saitek x52. The latter saitek products had quality issues that logitek are working on addressing and will replace faulty ones under warranty. Thrust master looked ok but didn't seem to have as many hats or rotaries Ch products have no software support since the engineer who did this retired and don't seem interested in this market sector any more. Fwiw I repaired my x-52 and I like it. Hope this helps

    A place to share coops

    I thought we were sticking with battle of Stalingrad as our standard? Or is this not possible for hosts? I have no plans to buy Kuban but will probably preorder bodenplatte soon . So my question is that with everyone having different installs how does that work for us on coops ?

    Lancaster MkI 1/72 Revell

    wow your a real masochist, the new revell and airfix lancs are pretty good and would build easier, but maybe you have a good reason for going with this one ?

    online servers

    Online is pretty frustrating at the moment, Wings of liberty still very popular and hard to get a slot on, also suffering a lot of issues since last patch with overload. Icon on servers are just airquake ,lots of vultching and head on collision Lots of friendly fire on all servers Online does not seem to be any kind of priority so can't see customised icons any time soon.
