View Full Version : A feeling about IL-2

Hi guys,
I start to play IL-2 during the oldest IL-2.Today we could fly many models of planes, however we still don't have too much kinds of planes for flyable, such as heavy bombers such as B-17s, real night fighters such as He-219,something like that. That just what I feel.

Well...sure. Fighters always get the attention, they are sexy http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif That's the way it is

Night Fighters...well, the sim engine might have a problem with that.

It's been discussed before, but radar and the very way the planes are modelled at night (no exhaust flare) are big stumbling blocks ti night fighter ops

Another thing to consider is the amount of work that goes in to making bomers. Its difficult to get references to model each crewer position to Oleg's standards and making a B-17 interior would be like creating like nine or ten fighter cockpits.

Oleg said that e didnt want to do a half @ssed flyable bomber and since the stations have to be modeled we dont have one yet...... who knows what the future holds...
