Hell of a lot of fun, though when I'm in a bomber and see a red beaufighter I get this nervous tic.

I've been playing British planes almost exclusively and I have to say that I love the Beaufort. It doesn't have a huge arsenal (when leveled up you can get two 500 lb bombs or my beloved torpedo) but it is fast and fairly agile for its size. There's no forward gun, so you're not distracted on bombing runs and if a fighter is on your tail, using F6 to take over the machine gun is fun.

open beta now, and it seems we can spend real money...perhaps an actual division for this seems proper. no NDA either (the place-holder flight models on some aircraft...deplorable).

in game Mach5, and i am truly awful, presently...

Hope so.

I'm puzzled why they have so many place-holder FM's given their previous work with the IL-2 series.

I've been concentrating on the US fighters, when I force myself to use slashing B&Z tactics rather than get into turning fights I do pretty well. If you can get enough of a lead to get a few sustained bursts into turning aircraft the .50cals are good at seperating wings.

Other than that, tearing through the middle of a dogfight and landing hits on 3 or 4 aircraft before breaking out the other side, getting some altitude and repeating the process pays off in terms of XP from assists and the odd kill.

Of course, if you attract the attention of one of the Russian or German UFO's you're toast
