This kinda sounds stupid, but who actually flies the Il-2.

I enjoy it everytime I fly it, but I don't seem to hear many people talking about it in this forum.

It seems the "fighter bug" has gotten everyone.

Anyway I was reading all the background info trying to learn something new and I was surprised to find out about the fighter variant, the Il-2I. That's pretty sweet to make a bomber destroyer and low-altitude escort out of the thing.

I'd have to say the Il-2 Type 3 is probably my favorite model of them all, but the Il-2 Series 1 with 16 rockets packs quite a punch!

Any tips on the torpedo bomber Il-2T? Dropping a torp isn't exactly like firing a gun.

On regular dogfight servers, Il2 is simply cannon fodder (like any other bomber) unless escorted well by fighters.

All of them pack a great punch, and IL2 is by far my fav ground attack plane, no surprise there.

In VEF however, the whole mission rotates around escorting IL2s to and from target, so if you are looking for that, give virtual eastern front a try.

In the more historically minded dogfight and coop games online, the IL2 appears frequently and is often (though not always) the first seats to fill http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
