When you land your plane due to damage, ammo or fuel, do you just hit refly, or should you bail out, then hit refly?

Is there a way to refuel and loadup?

Also, how do you capture a neutral or enemy airfield? Just land on it?

Thanks!

When you land, hit refly...period.

You can't capture an enemy airfield nor will you benefit from bailing out. On the contrary, if you bail, you will get a screen message saying that you crash landed in most cases.

You certainly can land at an enemy airfield, but I wouldn't suggest trying it until all of the AA is neutralized as it will usually shoot you to h3ll before you can come to a stop. If the aa is not there or has been destroyed, you can land with full credit for the sortie.

This is one area I wish the code would recognize as it's not very realistic or fair to land at an enemy base and get credit as though you landed at home.

If its an FBD run server then I always land as bailing may result in the pilot being captured and the plane is lost so you team looses a plane and pilot.

If you land at an airfield you loose neither.

Thanks for the info.

Was it my imagination or can you capture Neutral Airstrips on WarClouds? I could have sworn I saw a strip in Red, which later became neutral.

There is no capability to capture airfields in IL2, it is designated in the mission as red or blue or neutral from the start. If you land at ny airfield intact, you get credit.
