On FB there is a Pdf manual which gives details like landing speed, combat RPM etc. Is there such a manual on PF? I had a look for it but cant find anything other than an E version of the printed manual. Any suggestions?

You are correct in your observation that FB has a supplemental manual while PF(m) does not.

Maybe some of these SimHQ articles (http://www.simhq.com/_air/acc_library.html) will be useful?

There are also several fan sites that host user-made guides for everything from bombing techniques to cockpit references:
Airwarfare.com (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#001) -- Get the Aircraft REference Guide and Hardball's Object viewer 4.02!
NetWings (http://www.netwings.org/library/Forgotten%5FBattles%5Fand%5FPacific%5FFighters/Utilities/)
Eastern Skies (http://people.ee.ethz.ch/%7Echapman/il2guide/index.htm) -- an old link I found in my favorites!
JU-87 Dive Bombing (http://www.naysayers.com/9jg52/stuka/sturz.htm) -- another old link!

Try this ... Neural Dream's guide is excellent. So is Harball's viewer... and In Pursuit is priceless.

In Pursuit: An Online Pilot's Guide to Aerial Combat (http://web.comhem.se/%7Eu85627360/)
Neural Dreaml's Aircraft Reference Guide (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#001)
Hardball's Aircraft Viewer (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#014) an online version of the guide basically.. both are very good.
Uber Quick M issionGenerator (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#043) - This tool will help you to create more diverse quick missions to practice with. It comes with an extensive help file and is pretty easy to use once you doit a few times.
Fraps (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#010)- A quick and easy way to measure your frames per second
IL2 Manager 5.0 (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#022) This utility will allow you to make certain adjustments within the config file.. like graphics setting etc. on a gui. While it is highly recommended that you learn where these things are in the config file, once you know that... easy and quick is the way to go. It also has a stick editor which will allow you to set up different profiles for your joystick sensitivity settings.
IL2 Stab (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#024) Similar to IL2 Manager but without the stick editor and with a Diary feature.
VAC (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#047)- Voice ActvatedCommands - This utility is very similar to SHOOT.. it allows you to interact with your PCand thus the sim with voice commands. Very usefull in coops. A bit tricky.. but a good program.
COOP Generator (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/FB/fb_essential_files.htm#005) - A random COOP genrator. I have yet to use it but it looks interesting.
Sniper's Corner (http://ourworld.cs.com/Abra772/SC_2_Eng.zip) a nice utility to help get the angles aspect of A2A gunnery in your head - Gunnery at AW.C (http://www.airwarfare.com/tactics/tactics_fwgunnery.htm)-A good explenation of the tool and what is does. Also this entire section at AW.C is a really good resource.

Hit the Sturmovik Essentials link in my sig for more good links.
