Wildcat Awakened (F4F-3)

Recommended Posts

To be truthful I also can't wait to take off from Akagi in the A6M2, but I really, really want to get back into the "seat" of the Buffalo again, and hopefully a P40 that can actually be flown like pilots did in the real thing, unencumbered by some silly, artificial clock that triggers engine failure.

Well I wonder how wildcat would do against A6M2. Latter will be like 109 in Europe scenery. It is a lot of performance difference there. Only upside is dive and not being a zippo

It's not a mystery my dude...like Blitz just said.

A very well known dynamic.

Flew one off a carrier yesterday in IL-2 1946 with Ultrapak 3.4!

I’m not familiar with the ultrapack. Screenies? 

Ultrapack is another mod pack for 1946 like HSFX, Ypack, and BAT. Ultrapack 3.4 "Cassie" is the latest version of it which is available at the Special Aircraft Service forums.

Not a screenshot, but a video I just came across here (be sure to set resolution to max) -

Figured I'd post another vid from the EAA channel.  This one is the Hellcat that was at Oshkosh in 2021:

 

The Hellcat is what I'm really looking forward to being able to fly in a modern PTO WWII combat sim eventually someday

That aircraft was formerly owned by Yanks air museum. This was its paint scheme at that time.
