    For a long time I've been playing IL2 1946 without much knowledge of what goes into the machine, what panels do what etc. Then comes along this random post about the F4F Wildcat's engine specs. Normally when I played with the F4F I tend to overheat and passed it off as how the aircraft flies and open the radiator to full. It's only after reading the cruising engine powerchart did I realise I've been flying at combat power for the longest time :oops:.

    I decided to get to work and try hunt down more technical manuals and I came to this site, it's like finding a treasure trove! Thanks to all those people who scan and upload them.

    You mean to say he's moved? Jan was in room 101 last I heard...

    We are not all mad here, the British members are a model of sober but, witty thoughtful postings.
    Somtimes our humour is lost in the translation but, the colonials usually catch up eventually..hahahaha

    Welcome to our world
    Cheers
    John

    I.... am pretty much lost for words *twitch*.

    Edit: You know I sorta expected a... I dunno different? community? I haven't really been involved in any for a long time, the last one was Voogru's Natural Selection forums and that was AGES ago. Reddit doesn't count.

    Welcome to the forum. Admins, can you reset Bill's counter to 81 instead of 5081?

    But, Bill...you moved to another colony. Didn't you realise?
    At least the Aussies have our Queen as head of state.
