I think it's b/c of the IL2DGEN. As the recorded tracks are the time corrupted and sometimes it looks like there was a huge lag.

Sighted three German sub's in Japanese waters!!!
 
This was the only sub I didn't sink. It seems to be a minelayer with snorkel and three twin anti- aircraft guns on the conning towers. They are type VIICs.http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/7717/grab0000dt0.jpghttp://img102.imageshack.us/img102/3112/grab0001yn8.jpg

Nope, no schnorkel. That's the periscope. :up: The Schnorkel was positioned on the deck, abit to the bow from the tower.

Kptlt. Neuerburg 09-23-07 05:30 PM

No there is a snorkel there you just can't see it in those screenshots. I''l get a better shot and you'll see it.

Kptlt. Neuerburg 09-23-07 05:45 PM

And theres the snorkel right above and to the left of the air intake.http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/5512/snorkelrr4.jpg

The schnorkel is located just forrad of the conning tower on the port casing and does not appear to be raised :hmm:

Yup, sure is. Otherwise known as the Douglas AC-47 Skytrain, i.e. the military version of the DC-3 fitted with three sideways-firing General Electric 7.62mm miniguns, firing up to 6,000 rounds per minute each, aimed with a gunsight on the pilot's left cockpit window. The AC-47's official callsign was usually 'Spooky', but...

Puff the Magic Dragon was the US ground troop's nickname for it, and became the Vietnamese nickname for it too. It was taken from the 1963 Peter Paul and Mary song of the same title, popular at the time owing to its supposed references to smoking cannabis, and the song's other character 'Jackie Paper', which most people thought was a reference to cigarette papers in a joint, and even though the song's writer denies this, it probably was.

Stupidly unaware of the jokey drug connotation, the USAF encouraged the use of this nickname because they thought the connotations and mythology of Dragons in South East Asian culture night make it more feared by some poorly-educated Vietnamese peasants.

It's bloody hard to aim the guns on the simulated version in that picture, because you control the aim point with the angle of bank, like the real thing. But if you do get the bullets on target, it will pretty much destroy anything on the ground. The aircraft is one that is included in a set of missions from the 'Yankee Air Pirate' add-on for 'Wings Over Vietnam', as is the A1 Skyraider in the other picture.

Not the only aircraft to get the Magic Dragon nickname though:

Brings back memories of one of my Australian cousins who knew a guy in the Aussie Army that served over in Nam and got a ride one night in one of those flying arsenals.
Apparently, this one also had a 105mm howitzer fitted :yep:
This guy said they fired it to show him it's effect....and the plane shuddered for a good 5 seconds after it had fired.
