I just bought the 3-in-1 IL2 complete pack, and so far it's been more than awesome. I just have a few questions:

1) I love the dynamic campaigns, is there somewhere I can download new ones?

2) As I go through a campaign, I know I get promoted and stuff, but do I get to fly new airplanes as time progresses? Or am I stuck flying Stukas for the rest of the war? Also, do operations change (from Stalingrad to, say, Berlin)?

3) I would like some basic tips for flying in formation. I can do it, but it's just it takes me quite a bit of time to catch up to the other planes. Is there a way I can squeeze even more power out of the plane? I pretty much fly using 110% power and with an open radiator until I catch up to them. Also, whats the best way to match speed: using actual speed as reference, or using power percentages (ie "the formation moves at 65% throttle when straight and level")?

Thanks in advance.

A good starting point is to find a post by Bearcat and click on the 'essentials link in his sig...

You'll get promoted and transferred to new planes as the war progress, but it may be a hundred or more missions into the campaign. The dynamic campaign is generated by the game, if you start over with a new pilot, the campaign won't be the same.

Should you get tired of the game generated campaigns, there's a list of very good user made campaigns in the first post of this thread:

Thanks guys, that covers all of the questions.

Currently downloading the dynamic generator, hopefully it'll expand the uberness.

I must say, I played the original IL-2 some two years ago but this new edition feels a whole lot different.
