View Full Version : IL2 forgotten battles I-16 question

Hey guys i've been playing with the russians I-16 and my G for gears isn't working on it. All the other aircraft in the game are working with it expect the I-16 does the aircraft have some special way of letting its gears down, or is it just my game?

The I-16 historically has manually actuated gear. there is no automatic system

You must assign keys for "raise-" and "lower- gear manually"

Same goes for the F3F

cid said it well... I also came across some interesting pages actually have console command to automatically raise I-16 gears: http://scripts.sturmovik.de/html/scripts.html

Another thing... you may sometimes get a situation that you can't lower your gears due to battle damage.
I tried to manually lower them, and it worked!
At least on IL-2 it worked lol.
