Are the cowl flaps on the upper left side supposed to be mismatched with the fuselage?

Yes they are.

I've known about trim since I started the game, but never really thought to use it to aim a 30mm tater at 600+ out. I've only done this a few times though ;)

It's nothing more than a gimmick and will not provide you with any significant advantage over some else.  You are better off practicing your flying and gunnery skills.

Try it against the drones in the offline practice and its pretty nice to line up a sweet shot. Since I got a better joystick, monitor, and VR set up I don't really trim aim anymore unless I have a 30mm+ cannon plane.

Been playing this game and others like AH since before you were born.  I don't need to resort to gimmicks.

Nice work.  I would consider dialing back the vertical line shading on the fuselage a tiny bit but that's just me.

I thought about that, and it looks odd to us as we know the other way, but to a new guy I think the visual of that speed climbing with alt or the climb rate fall off will help them.


I think it's totally counterintuitive even to a new guy to have 'altitude over ground' go from left to right instead of 'up and down'. It's also confusing to use a format different from the in game charts.

But it's great to see that tool back again  :aok
Any plans to add the missing fighters?

I don't know, I think the visual of the vertical axis representing altitude is the most intuitive for players new and old.

^ that’s the link which of course is not http or www...

How are you getting the page to work? It takes me to the website(s) but won’t load any comparisons once I hit submit.

Thanks in advance

Fuji, can you swap the X and Y axis' on the performance charts so that the X is speed/climb rate and Y axis is altitude? This would make them like the old site was and also the HTC charts.

Big Jim seems like a favorite amongst VF-17 fans, he's the image of what a pilot with from the Jolly Rogers should look like. He finished the war with 5.5 kills and shot down the first Ki-61 "Tony" in the South Pacific Islands which was also his first full victory. In that engagement on November 11, 1943 he looked up saw boxed wings and thought it was the Hellcats, only to look down and see they were below him. "It was the whole Japanese force coming in from Rabaul and Buka toward the carries". Big Jim radioed the C.I.C. on the Bunker Hill and told them "hold theirs hats because all spam was about to hit the fan!" He and Danny Cunningham managed to get above the strike and the Tony went into a 30 degree dive from 20,000 to 10,000 ft, they were able to overtake him rapidly at which the Tony went into a 45 degree dive to 200 ft. Big Jim opened up fire at 300 ft and the Ki-61 exploded just above the water.

He tallied 2.5 Zekes, his final kills on January 27, 1944 to become an ace. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with two Gold Stars and an Air Medal with six Gold Stars upon his arrival home. He served in the Navy till he retired in 1969 as a Commander and was awarded the Navy Commendation Medal.

Streig's plane is the only one we can confirm had the red outline around the insignia, that came from his own mouth and has been reiterated by his son. Pictures of his plane the outline is much more muted than the others photoed with it, along with a photo of the plane stateside on a barge that it's clearly not blue. I don't know how or why his manged to fly until march 1944 with it red, maybe he liked it and know one wanted to be the one to change it.
