I know they are very helpful in this game but we're they just as useful in real life.

Gunther Rall said it best when he had mirrors. Due to the vibration of the aircraft, if he saw a plane in the mirror, it was too late and be prepped to bail out.
IIRC, have not heard/ read any other account on the effectiveness of the mirror. Though, there are plenty of pics of aces using them even by mid-late war.

Rear view mirrors. Where are they? The Hurricane hasn't got one, for example and that had one historically. I don't know about German aircraft.
This applies to IL2 1946.

I suggest you set a key to Toggle mirror, and look again

Ok, I don't remember seeing a Toggle Mirror option, I just assumed they'd be on by default. Thanks for clearing it up. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

They are only avialable on planes that historically had them.

They are not on by default because they are resource intensive and on older systems the frame rate can be halved.
