    perhaps asking on a FS board might get a more accurate response as all i use my CFS discs for are coasters

    Alas, no They're too old for FS2004 - some might work, but usually there're props and landing gear missing, etc. But thanx anyway!

    Well in principle yes, but it's realism I'm after, and IMO there's one big problem with FS2004 aircraft... now I definitely don't want to disrespect anyone, but there's a mentality there amongst the designers to _always_ call their planes "realistic", even when in practice they're anything but

    But that's why I presented my question to _you_ connoisseurs instead of them So anyone here care to recommend something they fly _personally_ in FS2004 & are satisfied with realism-wise?

    Thanks SeaNorris! I've actually tried many of those planes already, but anything there you _personally_ like to recommend? Because y'see, it's quality I'm after, not quantity

    S!

    Since we're a bit short of heavies in IL-2 I suggest everyone with a copy of FS2004 to get this bird

    PS. Thanks once more SeaNorris, cool site that FSWarbirds there...
