Hi Bkdrft

Yeah, naturally I heard that story about Immelman. I seem to recall that a fee got the Red Baron too, back in July 1917. I don't think anyone managed to write off that one to a damaged interupter gear \:D Didn't an FE2 get Schaefer too? Pusher yes, pushover no, at least not in 1916-17.

Slightly OT, but there's quite a convincing article in the current "After the Battle" mag, which presents evidence that Douglas Bader was brought down, not by a colliding 109, nor shot down by a 109, but in error by a Spit of 616 Squadron!


Anyway fear not, the planes in WoW arehighly authentic, despite being given odd names in the game. There is a Fokker Dr 1, tho there is also an Albatros Dr1, the only inaccuracies being that the latter did not see service and was based on the D V where the game version is based on WoW's late model Alb D III. The game's real Nieuport 17 is so accurate that in the virtual cockpit, when you move the ailerons, the actuating rods (running up from the deck in front of the cockpit into the underside of the centre section) actually move too. there are a few inaccurate, jazzed-up colour schemes, and a few boobs in the placement of crosses, but all in all it's very accurate. The SE5a doesn't have quite enough dihedral and one of the German C-types looks like an amalgan of Aviatik B II and Albatros C III, for example. But overall WoW's planes are easily the best WW1 planes seen so far in a commercial combat sim.

And you're scrapping with a Hun and your gun cuts out
Well, you stuff down your nose till your plugs fall out
'Cos you haven't got a hope in the morning!

yeah, a fee shot MvR in the head and he blacked out. When he came to he couldn't see and was in a dive. He struggled to pull the plane up and his vision came back just in time to see he was pulling out and skimming the tree tops.

He was never the same after that incident.

It was during the Black Flight vs Flying Circus summer.

flyby1,

Outstanding! I think that Silver Wish Games should put you on their payroll. \:\)

Best regards,

Flyby -- Highly successfully teased by your latest bit of promised WOW magic.

Any idea when we might be able to untease ourselves and actually use your AI plane Selector
Cheers
