    Another BIG update coming to BoS at the end of this month which will see the release of the Kuban map with the water technology from RoF added to the game along with new FM calculations for all planes, new shadow technology, torpedoes, enhanced graphic options and the usual host of minor upgrades, bug fixes, etc. Kuban release has now become an important step on the way to Battle of Midway - the next BoX theatre. Kuban also has - thank heavens - mountains and sea; a pleasant change from the endless steppe of Stalingrad and the equally endless regions of forest and marsh around Moscow. Just a reminder if you has BoS but have not fired it up in a while; for several months now you have been able to access all of the maps in multiplayer even if you only have one of the base games. For example - if you only own BoS you are able to fly on the Moscow map in multiplayer. Also, if you haven't updated your game in a while I would think it worth doing now - before the release of what will be a major, game changing patch. Oh yeah; could not resist posting a quick Spitfire circuit in my Vb with Merlin 45M engine

    P40 tailwheel works like this; If you do NOT push on the rudder bar the tail wheel is left locked in place. If you push the rudder more than 30 degrees the tailwheel becomes steerable. You only need that for sharp turns from parking spots and then use the toe brakes too. In the video - when I'm taxiing around the track to the start of the runway, with just a little speed up - I'm just using a spot of rudder to keep it going right. Only about 15% throttle. Oh yeah; once airborne you can close the cooling flaps almost completely. Be prepared to crash - a lot!

    Prop-pitch tied to throttle? Sounds like your game is in 'Normal' difficulty mode. This means simplified flight physics and engine management. To check - and to put your game into the same settings you'd use for IL2 1946, CLoD and DCS - go into the QMB screen and down the bottom right is the select realism button. Click on it and then select custom mode and UNCHECK all the boxes except; Object markers Allow spectators Warmed up engine Auto pilot Much nicer! Re-shade settings? I'm using the latest version which is now 3.something or other. Check out post #10 in this thread; https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/26142-reshadesweetfx-help/

    P40 manual? There isn't really such a thing inside the game. The link FT gives is a very handy one and gives all the aircraft specs and engine limits. Engine limits are very important on the P40! Here's one of Requiem's excellent guides; One of the oddities of the BoS series is the importance of learning how to taxi. Actually flying the planes is the easy bit. It's mastering the ground handling that takes some practise. The P40 isn't too hard but its a matter of gentle inputs in all things. It has toe brakes which makes things a lot easier but the tail-wheel steering on these things requires....familiarisation Do not be tempted to push the prop-pitch control to 100% as you'll blow the engine just after take-off. Around 85% is sufficient. During the take off run the tail will come up easily but you'll need to give a bit of a tug on the stick to actually get it off the ground. Again, watch the engine settings I'm using. At the end of July/early August there will be a major change to the FM modelling released which will hopefully have a positive effect on the P40 which at the moment - in combination with the strict engine limits we have - is a bit of a handful.
