While playing the original IL-2 the other day (I don't have IL-2FB, just PF standalone and I get tired of A-20s and all) I noticed something very odd.

I was flying the BI-1 against some Bf109F-4s (totally unfair, just like me), and after making a pass on one it hit the ground fairly level at about 450km/h. The odd thing is, it didn't blow up but lost its wings and tail, flipped up in the air about 10m, and cartwheeled down a road before coming to a stop and the pilot running away. I saved the .trk file and played it back to record the crash from different views, and once my website is up I will post something here with a link to the video.

Has this happened to anyone else? Strange, but spectacular, considering the 109 went flyinig up into the air after losing the wings and tail and hit the ground without exploding but simply skidding to a stop and surviving.

happens sometimes, sometimes a gentle touch = bang

Yeah, guess the 109's never really get that far anymore though, they blow up often, but with many planes this still happens, really cool. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I was flying a Ki-43c attacking 4x B-24s and 2x P-38s Unfair, but thats how I fly offline (except I'm disadvantaged.)

Anyway, I delt with the lightnings, started attacking the liberators. hit one, no major damage but apparently the crew knew something I didn't and they went jumping out.

the second one I must have nailed its controls as it started circling, still moving but not able to break its descending circle.

When it hit the ground, it exploded, but reviewing the engagement the front part of the fuselage multiplied . . . there was one main fuselage that stayed at the crash site and another went flying off from the explosion.

That happens too, it seems. I managed to get my pilot shot in the head, and two heads appeared - one in the 'alive' position, the other slumped forward. Looked kinda weird.

There was also a bug in the original Sturmovik that got fixed in a patch - dead pilots still turned their heads when they had a target padlocked. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
