I have seen it before (wow, turn fighting an I-153, lol), but is it an IL-2 at 1:50?

I can't really confirm, but have almost sure that is an IL2. but couldn't recongnize if is a single or two seat version.

Great footage, looks like the 110 could hold it's own against the vvs at that time. I wonder at what point this plane was withdrawn from the eastern front, 1943?

Great find...thanks for the link!

It would appear we have a much roomier cockpit in the game than in real life. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

that soviet pilot in the biplane doing a head on (at 42 seconds) was brave.

Love the tracers.

very nice at start of the video the 110's flying in formation on the deck and then climbing all together. I gonna bring some friends do IL2 and we gonna training a lot to do the same. just love formation flying.

Hmmm, don't think so.
1. He may have 2x20mm cannons, which is almost equal to the armament of the bf-110
2. The German crew is unprotected and could be easily killed by a single shell, I-153 has a huge engine protecting the pilot.
3. Bf-110 is a much bigger target than the a small I-153
4. He was in a disadvantage being lower, so going for a head-on is an all-or-nothing scenario with a 50:50 chance for each side.
5. Going for a head-on was a standard procedure for soviet escort fighters to repulse an attacking enemy with an altitude advantage.
