View Full Version : A Quick Look at IL2 Aircraft Performance

Hey guys,
After getting alot of criticism for flying the La-7, I decided to become a virtual test pilot and put several airframes into the crucible. You can find this new article in this thread:

Its finding are slightly interesting because they deviate a little from what has been found elsewhere. .... And the La-7 acquits itself quite well.

Hope you enjoy and cheers,

OMG La7 and Spit25lb and I-185 M-71 the best planes for noobs!!!!???

Almost every noob finds this out for themselves without needing a guide to tell them.

Most people though would agree with me that no Il-2 test is really valid without seeing ntrks. This is how anything that happens in the game is evaluated. And NO I didn't ask this or orgiinated it but rather Oleg did http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Any problems in the game he used to ask for ntrks always. This way, everybody is looking at the same thing and can see what is actually being done in any tests. of course the 'sound mod' changed all this.

I won't change my position that flying these planes would not make you 'grow' as a dogfighter and in fact would hinder your growth.

PS: Funny comment on the 'UNUSUAL blackout and stalls' with the G2. This seems to demonstrates lack of familiarity with the Bf-109 design. You should know the 109s have 'leading edge slats' so the delayed g-forces and almost lack of spins and stalls (unless induced) is not UNUSUAL but rather to be EXPECTED based on the leading edge slats as well as trailing edge wedge slats/flaps design. The 'slats' (leading and trailing edge) on the 109 slows down the plane and increases 'lift' and attentuates the different stall points across the wing span (due to the wing taper)

In the 109 you would still have a clear view while your opponent is already blacked out or you still have control while your opponent is already TUMBLING and spinning after a zoom climb or other edge of envelope move.
