View Full Version : IL-2 1946 Missing Aircraft

OK, I have just finished installing 1946. On the DVD cover and in some of the installer pictures they show a German aircraft with a circular wing, some sort of VTOL aircraft. I cannot find this aircraft in the game. It is one of only 3 pictures on the back of the box and in severl of the installers pics. Is this false advertising or am I doing something wrong?

That is the lovely lerche.
It never flew and, actually, could never have flown the way it was designed. However.. it managed to make it into the game.
Just look for the name Lerche in the aircraft list.

Go into the quick mission builder and scroll down the list of aircraft, it's called the Heinkel Lerche, should be quite far down the list.

OK, I found it, thanks. I guess all the aircraft in the game are not in the object viewer, because the lerche isn't in there.

Has anyone been able to land that thing? Me thinks it's impossible.

I've seen a couple of guy's do it, but it takes lot's of practice and a fine touch.
