Hello
I've been thinking about this for a while now.. Maybe this has been discussed before, but I thought I would bring it up..

My thought is creating a Master Library about how to fly each aircraft in the game.
I was envisioning a Sticky where you would find what would amount to a 'Skins' folder where each aircraft is represented by a folder, and in each folder would be tips&tricks, how to's, what not to do's, and what ever else is important about that particular aircraft, submitted by those who fly that aircraft.
This game has been around for a while now, and there are a LOT of aircraft to explore and not enough time to learn each one, so there must be a lot of 'experts' who would love to share their expertise in their favorite plane.
I find myself often searching the forums for this kind of thing about a particular aircraft and spending a lot of time doing it and often coming up with very little.
I also often see posts here about how to do this or that in a particular plane. This would be a great place to compile all this pertinent information.

I'm also thinking that this should be done before BOB comes out while there is still some interest in the Il-2 game.

So what do y'all think?

I would find this very helpful. If nothing else some basic numbers - Vx, Vy, best approach speed, stall with and without power - would be great.

Have a look here http://www.battle-fields.com/c...orumdisplay.php?f=78 (http://www.battle-fields.com/commscentre/forumdisplay.php?f=78)

I have a spreadsheet that lists Vy and Vne speeds for most of the IL2 a/c http://www.filefront.com/16398...aft-Data-tcm-v3.xls/ (http://www.filefront.com/16398999/IL2-Aircraft-Data-tcm-v3.xls/)

Well, we're gettin warm.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif There's a lot of useful info there. But if there was a place for specific CEM data for each A/C, what a gold mine!
If one were to fly a plane in coop or squad game that one was not familiar with, at least one could read up and be more knowledgeable and therefore more efficient..

Trashcan, on your spreadsheet, looking at the P-51-D and a 190 in a climb.. The 190 climbs best at 266 k/hr and the 51 climbs best at 284 k/hr. This means that the 51 will climb 18 K/hr faster than the 190, so the 190 can never catch up with a 51 in a climb?
I've noticed this in QMB flying a 190 against a 51 if we both get slow, I can't catch up to the 51 once the 51 starts climbing.

I drive the P-51 quite a bit and I know you have to keep CEM perfectly and watch that slip ball continuously to stay fast, so the AI pilot is doing exactly that.
Again, this is vital information for someone jumping into a P-51 for the first time, or wanting to learn how to fly it.

Anyway thanks for the links http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
