1C:Maddox Games, Ubisoft and Ilya Shevchenko are proud to present the Petlyakov Pe-2 bomber to the virtual pilots of the world. The little bomber affectionately known as the €œPeshka€ (Pawn) is the most famous Soviet twin-engine bomber of the war. It was to the twin-engines what the Il-2 was to the single-engines. Extremely versatile, the Pe-2 served in virtually any role imaginable: dive- and level bomber, heavy fighter, night fighter, reconnaissance, and more. Over 20 different modifications were produced during the war, with a total of 11,000 built. The Peshka served from the summer of 1941 well into the Cold War, where it received a NATO reporting name €œBuck€.

Notes:

1. Waist Gunners.
The third crewman in the Pe-2 bomber, officially known as the gunner-radioman, was one of the busiest men in aviation history. In addition to manning the radio, he also had to man three separate defensive positions: the left waist gun, the right waist gun, and the bottom gun. Often he would be given only one gun, which he would need to move from socket to socket as threats shifted. In a few recorded cases, the gunners would open the top hatch, stand up, and fire the machine gun off-the-hip, Hollywood style.
Unfortunately, the Il-2 / FB / PF code was never intended for a single crewman alternating between firing positions. In Pe-2€s cause we would not be able to prevent the AI from, for example, firing the bottom gun while the player fired the left waist. Due to these limitations and in order to keep a level playing field, the waist gunner in all Pe-2s will always be controlled by AI.
The Pe-2 and Pe-3 are no different from other flyable bombers on all other respects.

2. Some PCs made by the Northwood Computers company may experience performance issues when running the game in the Perfect graphics mode. Due to issues outside of our control, the machines may lock up. Therefore, we do not recommend running the game in the Perfect mode.
In certain cases, the lock ups may be prevented by renaming the il2_core.DLL file into il2_coreP4.DLL. The files are located in the root Il-2 folder. Important: when renaming the files, make sure to save a back-up copy of the original il2_core.DLL.

Using the OPB-1 bombsight

1. Prior making the bomb run, bombing altitude and aircraft speed must be entered into the bombsight. The true distance from the target to the plane can be entered using the Increase Bombsight Altitude and Decrease Bombsight Altitude keys. Input the plane speed using the Increase Bombsight Velocity and Decrease Bombsight Velocity keys. Note that the true (not indicated) airspeed must be set (it can be obtained from the speed gauge when in No-Cockpit View mode). Plane angle of drift should be entered using Adjust Sight Control to Left and Adjust Sight Control to Right keys.

Use the Toggle Gunsight control key (Shift-F1 by default) to lean to the bombsight lenses. The plane should be in level flight. While the plane is positioned horizontally, the bubble visible in the bombsight lenses should be in the centre of the reticule.

Use the Increase Bombsight Distance and Decrease Bombsight Distance keys to adjust the crosshair position so the €œU-mark€ and the triangle mark match on the bombsight scale. Bomb trigger should be pressed when the target passes the centre of the bombsight reticule.

2. Look for the special training mission in €œTrainings€ menu.



Static Campaigns


Attention!

We strongly recommend starting the campaign in the rank designated in the Campaign Information screen, which you see before beginning. This way you€ll be able to control one or more wingmen. If you start the campaign in a different rank, your position in a multi-plane flight may not be the one intended by the mission authors.

With default settings, landing at the home field is one of the mission objectives; that is, when flying the campaign, you will be required to land successfully after each and every mission. We recommend turning off the €œNo Instant Success€ option in the game€s realism menu, which will allow you to continue onto the next mission even if you are forced to crash-land or bail out in the course of the mission.
