A question from the Hangar: "What if pressurized cp's were modeled in game? As you go up in alt, what if maneuvers caused blackouts easier due to lack of oxygen in planes that lacked pressurised cp's? Of course pressurised planes would gain a bigger advantage at alt, but wasn't this how it was irl?"


1.The aircraft currently in the game did not have pressurized cockpits
2. When we do include those that did, it only really starts to matter a lot above about 6km
3. When we get to that point, it might make a difference but not a big one I don’t think, pilots in unpressurized aircraft had more than adequate oxygen what they needed most was cockpit heating that was easily fine tuned for different altitudes

There was no real point other than pilot comfort/safety really, although moving quickly/easily in combat (less heavy clothing) was more than a comfort issue

Thanks for the reply DOC.

1. I thought we did - Guess I was wrong :)

2. Nice to hear you have those plans - I look forward to seeing them in future!

3. What was the point of having pressurized cockpits beside pilot comfort?
