Indeed we sohouldn't, it's a good way to test the limits of a plane and get used to it, but I think that we should also practice 2vs2 situation (or more) while trying to keep cohesion at least at a leader-wingman level.

SYN_Mike77 wrote:I also agree that it hurts unit cohesion when people jump right back in after getting shot down. Does TAW allow that? Also, can you become a gunner for ground attack planes when you get shot down in TAW. If so, that might be better than jumping in another fighter (says the ground pounder :lol: )


Totally agree.

I agree with Mugue, we can learn some lessons from how we play together in Squad. We should try to avoid pointing fingers when it goes wrong, and start following lead from the wingcommander even when you don’t really agree with their plan logic. There is much to gain by just sticking to the plan..even when the plan is bogus.

Indeed..would be wise to have a plan before we even take off.

Getting to know your plane and being able to survive in a dogfight and land it in tact should be basic.

I suggest
1. Keep doing basic plane trainings like landing/taking off and dogfighting, bombing.
2. Do some group trainings like how to behave in a wing. How to fly in some sort of hiearchy. Flying on Wings Of Liberty with a plan and some evaluation afterwards could do the trick. Maybe mixup the roles now and then so everyone gets aquinted with leading and following.
3. Rince and repeat.

Good sorties tonight, Haash, Ricky and Repent! I enjoyed that very much. It's nice to draw some blood now and again. See you tomorrow.

Yes that was a good session, looking forward to the next one!

Now back to take-off training in the Mig-3 for me...

I understood that you weren't supposed to go past the point of unlocking the tailwheel with the rudder at take-off. Maybe I got that wrong because I really have to go past that to keep this thing on the runway, but at least it seems I can finally get the Mig off the ground after a couple of tries offline :roll: :lol:
[edit] even better after getting rid of the curve I had set on my rudder axis

Good fun tonite, felt totally useless but it was good!
