Hi Lassar, only one question today:
Last patch Bf109f4 lost its 2x20mm. The community was angry, u gave sources, community read them and they were wrong and also said that the 2x20mm were right. I am german and read them also and know that they say this.
Now some days are gone and here is my question: What have u done with it and when will it be back( hopefully as fast as u removed them)?

Im sorry if this has been asked before but now that p51's are getting unstacked, will the p-51 d30 get its M3 guns and 150 octane fuel? It clearly is post war variant judging by the default camo so it would be logical to give it its historical performance. This also would spice up Americas late tier 4, because 150 octane fuel would make p-51 very competitive plane for BR 5.7 in RB.


There will be P-51H... Why do you nned 150 octan fuel after that? M3... I hope to find time to tup it in 1.43


Because historically the P-51D's used 150 octane. That is why they should have it ingame.

More info here:
http://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/121536-150-octane-fuel-please/#entry2335957

The current P-51D in game only produces 1560hp at 2300m vs the V-1650-7 in real life produced 1660hp(67"Hg) at 2300m. The mustang we should have is the P-51D 150 octane fuel. Which should be producing 1868hp at 2300m... We are missing 300hp. With that extra 300hp the P-51D would be climbing at 22.14m/s(75"Hg) vs 19.2m/s(67"Hg). 

...

Anyways, its really about the time the Americans get their 150 fuel for the P-51D-**(1868hp) Mustang, P-47D-2*(2600hp) Thunderbolt and the hopefully the upcoming P-38J-**(2x2000hp) Lightening. Also if we do get the 150 octane fuel our aircraft should be extremely expensive to maintain and fly. P-51D-** should cost 15,000 lions, P-47D-2* is should be the most expensive single engine WW2 fighter 22,000 lions(26,000 lions for the N model) and 25,000 lions for the P-38J/L. 


and here:
http://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/121536-150-octane-fuel-please/page-3#entry2588189

...

the current P51 config is the introductory 1943 config, which was succeeded by the 150 octane Mustang running at 72-75 Ins. Hg. in April of 44', if we were to go by historical match-ups the current in-game P51 shouldn't see anything later than a FW190A8 (Feb.44) no ME262, D9, D12 ect.
 
Note that: Despite the P51 designations D5, D20 ect. on the in-game P51s, they are just that, designations, currently without the actual content/improvements that goes with those designation.

...


If not as part of the stock plane, a tier 4 upgrade for the P-51D-5 and P-51D-20 NA (which is gift/premium, so it'd have it default i guess), but should be stock on F-51D-30.


The P-51H is not a factor in how the P-51D or F-51D should be treated, it's a different plane. Like comparing an Il-2 to an Il-10.

Hi Lassar,

 

To bring up about the Ki-91 again, would perhaps you consider the Ki-91 if we could provide you with more data on it? I just feel that to consider an aircraft a paper plane, comes down to opinion;

 

- if an aircraft was built, just not flown, does that make it a paper plane? For example, the Ki-94 II?

- If an aircraft was built, but not complete, does that make it a paper plane? For example the Ki-91

 

It seems everyone looks at paper planes differently, and i question what stage of production of an aircraft you would consider a paper plane, to where it should not come in?

 

Regards Cherry

Hi lassar,

 

Will the new lend-lease p-47 for Russia have bomb and rocket racks? Will this plane be priced near the same as the b-25 and other tier 3 planes or will it have a bigger price tag because of the multiple capabilities?

What about those magic dust storms while hitting the target with mk 103 HVAP ammo?

 

For now they are random, even if you hit the tank itself, there is that big dark cloud of dust, unlike the real ones. (You saw the clip )

Any news?

How are going to be reworked the AP bombs?

And the recoil?


The A6M3 whit cliped wings have (when I unlocked) a green camo from an event, but next parch was removed whit the actual white.
Why dont put it as unlockable skin?
Can return soon?
I am nostalgic whit that skin O.Q

Finally the persistent mission will come whit 1,43 or whit the next minor parch?

Torpedoes will have some boost, at leats when attack carriers? (difficulty, only one try, but need the same amount of kg)

Are there any plans to buff German bombs ? As a player of all nations its incredibly noticeable that german explosives have worse damage per KG / LB then their Western and Eastern counterparts.

Has it been taken into account that the Ho-229 didn't fly with 100% power during trials and thus should have even higher top speed?

Lassar, will the J2M5 and A7M use the Type 99-2 Mod 5 cannon? It was introduced in May 1945, and would have been fitted on all Navy aircraft made after that date. It was a marked improvement over previous versions of the cannon.

On this website (http://www.quarryhs.co.uk/OeFFL.htm) Anthony G. Williams writes:

"The next, and last, Japanese improvement was a significant reworking of the mechanism to increase the rate of fire, in the Model 5. It is probable that the yoke was further lightened and the mainspring weakened, because some powerful buffer springs were added to the back of the weapon. The idea seems to have been that the lighter yoke and mainspring allowed the bolt to be thrust back more quickly, while at the end of the recoil stroke the buffer springs kicked the bolt violently forwards. The net effect was an increase in the rate of fire to 675-750 rpm, plus probably an increase in the peak recoil blow (although given the recoil-smoothing effect of the APIB design, it would still have recoiled more smoothly than other types). This was an impressive performance, but the gun was too late to see action. A photograph of the Type 99-2 Model 5 is shown here; it is the lower of the two Type 99-2s, and the buffer springs are visible at the back."

Here's the picture the quote refers to:

hey lassar :salute:

 

a question about the Ta 152C's

 

1. will the Ta 152C's get a option to switch guns, the plane was made in such away, that you could simply replace for example the mk108 nose cannon with a mk103 and the other way around.

also the Mg151/20's could be changed to mg151's (at the top of the fuselage and the wing roots)

 

2. will we get to install mg151/20's or mk108's in the outer wing of the aircraft, or even install a mk103 gunpod under the outer wing?

 

3. will the 15mm of the Ta 152C get's it's special tungsten-core ammonition specially made for the aircraft?

aswell as the uranium 30mm rounds for the mk103 (was not really decided on the aircraft, and was actually only used as replacement of tungsten)

 

                   How it will look ingame:

 

The Ta 152C-1 configuration:

1x mk108

4x mg151/20

+

additional mg151/20 or mk108 installed in outerwing, or mk103 gunpod installed under outerwing- you need to research all 3 of these gunpods ofcourse

 

The Ta 152C-3 configuration:

1x mk103

2x mg151/20 (wing roots)

2x mg151 (on the fuselage)

(note: some sources say 4x mg151)

+

additional mg151/20 or mk108 installed in outerwing, or mk103 gunpod installed under outerwing-^^

 

The Ta 152C was meant to be a heavy fighter, and should have these arnament options ingame, you can have never enough 'Dakka' ;)s

 

picture of the arnament locations and such:

hrj8sJn.png

 

 

Or, you can have 2 versions of the plane the C-1 and C-3. with the suggested option of the outerwing guns and a gunpod, like i said aboven!

He.162 suffers greatly from recoil of 30mm cannins

 

The same way Yak-9T / K had fuel leaks when they where shooting the cannon? ... Can we get the fuel leaks in game pls? 

 

 

And the real question is - > Are we gonna see the Italian tech three till new year? If so how many jet it will get when are u gonna launch it?

Lassar, i have a few ideas:

 

1. You said no atomic weapons. Fine, okay i agree, but can we have two conventional bombs named Little Boy and Fat Man? The bombs would like like the atomic bombs did historically, but only be a conventional HE bomb, and model Little Boy to be a 15K lb bomb and Fat Man a 20K lb bomb.

Do you think this is reasonable considering the Lancasters are going to get the Grand Slam?

 

2. You have said no to the G10N, the Ta 183, and the HG III. I think you should at least test them in the game first, and here's how: Lets say the G10N would be T4, and the HG III and the 183 would be T5. Give them a BR, proper FM, and make them free to everyone who has the tier unlocked, free to repair, free to resupply ammo, but make them give no reward to the pilots. See how they are flown in the game how they perform, etc, and adjust their BRs etc. This is for you to gather information based on their performance. After a few patches (example, if added in 1.49, leave them in game for 1.49 and 1.51) if you decide they are balanced in game, make them a normal aircraft with reward, repair, research things, etc, and if you do not think they fit well performance-wise or something, remove them. Do you think this is acceptable? Take the projected stats for the planes.

Hi Lassar,

 

These are my questions:

 

Why we have only one kind of SBD bomber? Can we expect in short future the added of models SBD-4 and 5?

 

Thanks guy ;)
