Hi,

I am new to this game and I'm running out ammo while dogflighting and I was wondering if there was anyway that I can land and reload or something like that, does anybody know?

All the best,
Selby

Yea first you have to use yuor radar to find the nearest refueling craft. Then you extend your refueling boom thing and refuel in mid air. When you see the enemy launch your sidewinder missles!

Nope - This is WWII.

Cant do that.



Yea if she wasn't a nazi and she was still alive,

I'd hump her.

Thanks,

I'm not that dumb, imagine mid-air refueling back in WWII.

I was actually asking if it was possible to land and get reloaded then take off again.

nope, only way is to refly. Just keep practicing, and you wont have a problem with low ammo.

"We could do with some of those razor blades, Herr Reichsmarshall."
When Erwin Rommel that British fighter-bombers had shot up my tanks with 40mm shells, the Hermann G├┬Âring who felt himself touched by this, said: "That's completely impossible. The Americans only know how to make razor blades." and the above was Rommels reply.

Online in dogfights .. the refly IS a refuel/reload button. Even better in fact as it gives you the option of jumping in a different plane or changing your loadout.

geez guys, raz him a bit


honest question, loco answers



you just have to land and then hit refly and get a new plane if in a DF. If in a mission you only get one plane per mission, no refly.

There has been alot of discussion about having the ability to land and park near refueling/arming station and have it happen, and such, but not in this sim.


Oh and watch those sidewinders, thier deadly /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

No, but what you can do, is first, stop flying around at full throttle. You will find that you can actually
turn and fight better this way. The savings in fuel
will keep you flying longer. And face it, you cant
turn well if you are flying at full throttle !!
And two, dont open fire untill you are right on
your enemy, and not before. If you have to zoom in the cockpit view to see your hit's, than you are opening
fire from too far out. That and keep your speed up
to at least 350kmh if at all possible, the airvraft
will be a lot steadier when the guns are fired.

My preffered firing distance is less than 200 meters.
No more, and prefferably a lot less /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

This is a good question. The turn around time for some WW2 fighters is much less than modern jets. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif The neat thing if it could be done is having to sit vulnerable on your field while you refit, time depending on type of aircraft.

Well, no mods, but you can download a bunch of skins here: http://www.il2skins.com/ or you can get skins, missions and track replays on the IL2 main page(look for links in the community section).

There's a dynamic campaign generator here: http://members.shaw.ca/lowengrin/ and if you want to make your own missions go here: http://www.il2center.com/technika/

If you want to get totally crazy and host your own scripted missions go here: http://www.greatergreen.com/il2/bbz/

I have to disagree with that running out of fuel concern. If you're new, you probably have fuel set to 100%. Unless you plan to fly a BI-1, set your fuel to 25% for online servers and quick missions, and keep your throttle at 100%(rough guideline), saving the extra 10% for emergency situations, where living is more important than overheating your plane. You won't run out of fuel, and you won't be going too fast unless you make a steep dive.

Since you only really mentioned the ammo shortage(except in your title), fire in short bursts from real close(as was mentioned).
