Still very new here so here's a few questions about this event:

Is this PVE or do we split up and PVP?

Is this on the Ravens server?

or do we group up as a squad and rampage another WW2 server?

Hey Flex,

for tomorrow's event we will do a coop mission vs. AI. If I remember correctly you only have the freebie tf-51 without guns. There are slots in the mission for that one as scout. So - would be great to see you tomorrow!

Ah - and yes - it's on the Ravens server

Hey, even without anyone else showing up Morningmode and I had some fun chasing each other with P51s! Also thanks again for coaching me with the starting procedure.
I'm thinking of buying one of the WW2 planes so I can bring that to these kind of events. Anyone has any suggestion? FW190, BF109, Spitfire, P51? I'm thinking BF109.... it's just such an icon although I know nothing about flying it.

Hey Flex,

yes the P51 ride was fun :-)

I think all WW2 planes are worth buying. At the moment we are only flying allied planes in the events, but that might change.

The full P51 is cheaper than the other warbirds and fun (&easy) to fly. It is not that competetive, though (especially against the 109).

The spit is a good turn fighter but relatively slow and (at least for me) hard to handle on takeoffs and landings.

The 109 in my oppinion is the best plane but somehow it's not my favourite.

The 190 has a great cockpit layout and is fun to fly. Boom&zoom-plane.

I personally would buy the Mustang or 109 ... or just get them all ;-)

I like the 109 in IL2 BOS so I can't imagine it would be significantly different in DCS.
Yes, I'm with you about buying them all.... I only wish it was a bit cheaper.

It feels different than the IL2 109. But I didn't fly BOS that much so I can't tell you exactly what is different.

Considering that I can fly all the WW2 planes in BOS already I'm not that itching to buy them all over again. I like close maneuvering type of fight and at this point I'd be more interested in the Mig-15 Mig-21 and F-86. They seem to be fun jets, and without the BVR aspect of things it forces close combat.

If you want to fly the Sabre sometimes - I'm in. It's a great plane!

Did you get any of the WW2 planes or the Sabre/Mig yet?

I got the Mig15. If flies like a brick compared to the F-5. I need to learn how to use it I guess but the thrust to weight ratio is just so poor I need to re-learn how to fly! The more I fly other planes the more I like the F-5.

It's the same with the sabre - but I like it. Maybe we can do a Mig15/Sabre event sometimes if there are enough pilots for both.
