1st mission:
Protect Dowly in his StuG.

Squadron was dispersed on take-off after a Russian fighter did an aerobatic display over the runway and then disappeared somewhere. Raptor and Task Force had...something happen, which resulted in an explosion, as usual.
I found an I-16 chasing a 109, and (much to my surprise) managed to shoot it down, then I found the IL-2s attacking the StuGs and managed to shoot down one and severely damage the other, landed off the runway as a bloody AI stole my landing slot, and Lolwaffled onto my nose.


The I-16 goes for a drink, no chute spotted.



The first IL-2 hits the deck, two chutes spotted.


The second IL-2, I ran out of ammo trying to dent the thing, so broke away and wished him luck. I was creditted with the kill so he must have crashed shortly afterwards.


Hunter in his Austrian wunderwaffe, and my Lolwaffle landing in the background...stoopid AI...



Myself and Arclight get an Iron Cross Second Class, Raptor gets shot.


Second Mission:
Protect Hitlers BMW

Took off in a bit more organised fashion this time. Followed Hunter to the Russian frontlines and then met a wall of MiGs and I-16s coming the other way. Got two on my six and was able to finally lose them by diving, building up speed and then using the 109s superior climb rate to get to safety. Spotted Raptor chasing one and then one jumped on his six, I curved in behind it and one curved in behind me, splat, oil everywhere. I broke off and ran for base followed by two or three persistant MiGs. Make it back to base with two MiGs still following, one breaks off and the other smashes into the ground as I try to land, I'm going far too fast to land properly so I pull up to go around, and then my engine catches fire...I pull up to gain altitude before jumping when....BOOM! Thank you Daimler-Benz...
Arclight chases an I-16 and gets his entire squadron on his tail for his pains, receives a nice hole in his wing and a shredded elevator so legs it back to base, discovers that he has no control over his throttle, so turns off the engine to land...and then glides into the ground just short of the runway.


Task Force, I think, as we head towards our patrol area.


Leaking oil does not improve forward visibility...


Raptor tangles with some Russkies as Task Force tangles with his joystick, and then the ground.


Hitlers BMW motorcade does its best to dissuade the MiGs on my six.


Arclight taking evasive manoeuvres


Arclight passing over some Wehrmacht vehicles



Meanwhile Task Force has redecorated his aircraft, painting the inside of the cockpit a nice red colour



Arclight goes for the same look but doesn't have any red paint

What version of Il2 are we (you) actually running now? I haven't had a look at it in ages and am completely out of the loop.

It's not a mod, it's a setting you'll have to enable in the config.ini file in the main folder of IL2
open it with notepad, scroll down a bit till you see this section.

It only works with a few aircraft, as far as I know.

I tried a bunch of different aircraft. I tried the original Yaks and IL-2's but still nothing.

3rd mission:
Protect some random heap of rubble

Took off and began patrol, spotted contacts which peeled off when we approached, I followed one which lead me on a merry chase around the sky until I was finally able to hold it in my sights for long enough to take its wing off. Turned out to be a LaGG. Found Arclight chasing a contact, another LaGG I believe, and covered him until he overshot his target whilst confirming his identity and then I lost both him and the target. RTB'd after a quick tangle with a contact which was being mobbed by about ten 109s made me Winchester. Nearly collided with a 109 but only saw a glimpse of it out of the corner of my eye, probably just as well I didn't see the full thing or I'd probably have panicked and stalled.


Russkie pilot bailing from his one winged LaGG


Gliderman, Gliderman, does whatever a Gliderman does...


Arclight chasing his bandit


Second mission.
Intercept MiGs

Downgraded to E4s due to parts shortage... Took off and climbed, it wasn't long until we ran into a formation of nine enemy aircraft, peeled in behind them, one broke high and then another even higher. Lost the one I was after and spotted Task Force chasing one so stayed near him to cover, an I-16 then locked onto Task Forces tail so I turned to intercept. Managed to chase him down after a long drawn out manoeuvring battle (those little sods can sure move) and took his wing off as well. At this point his friends had arrived, jumping Task Force and then me in short order, took some hits to the cockpit and engine area, so hit the deck and ran for home. Raptor came to my assistance and managed to drag whatever it was off my tail, then I spotted some IL-2s, so turned to attack, lost them again and then realised that I really should have headed back for base when I had the chance since my engine was sounding more and more broken. Fortunately I was over friendly territory when the thing finally gave up the ghost so did a belly landing in a field. Nothing important fell off so it should be fixable.


Task Force reeling in his bandit.



Chute and diving I-16 just visible.


Raptor curves in to save the day


He clears my six and then hunts down the offending aircraft.


Task Force makes a good landing



Me and Task Force swap stories of Daimler-Benz deaths and I discover the cockpit opens.


Raptor breaks my server...


The bullet hole in the open canopy...

We just have to keep trashing aircraft at this rate and eventually they'll have to give us some decent F-4s!

Perhaps we should all be thankful the Peshkas from Hell are not yet here to prey upon poor innocent bridges.
