I love AEP, its been fun so far, I love flying planes like the IAR's but I was curious about the plane so I looked up on the net for some historical info on this bird, and my findings are quite diffrent from AEP's info.

The IAR 80 had 4mg's and according to the website listed below the majority of the this series had the 960 hp (716 kW) K14-IV C32 engine. But the AEP version has the 1,025 hp (779 kW) K14-1000A engine, which first was introduced on the IAR 80A that has the 6 mg's on it. This is inaccurate historicly, and I know that Oleg likes hes planes in his game as historicaly accurate as possible. Now I dont know if the Maddox team knows already about this problem and has taken care of it already, but news travels slow about new stuff and fixed stuff coming in the patches in the future. So there are a few options that the Maddox team can do to fix this.

1. Switch the engines and make an already slow plane already slower.

2. Make a slight modification to the IAR 80 that we have now, and we have a slightly better armed IAR 80A.

Now I like the 2nd option, how about you guys? Why stop there, there are the IAR 80B's with the Two 13.2 mm (0.52 in) and four 7.92 mm (0.31 in) FN-Brownings. And the IAR 80C Two 20 mm Swiss Ikaria (license-built Oerlikon MG FF) and four 7.92 mm (0.31 in) FN-Brownings. But I dont want to get too greedy hehe. So if any of you guys have an opnion on the matter, or you disagree with me or agree with me, please post and say so, I want to hear your guys side of the story.

I humbly suggest that you will need more than one source (a website at that) to challenge IL2's info on the matter.

There was some mention that Oleg knows there are some inconsistancy in the IAR and that it would be fixed one way or another.

"BEST IAR-80/81 source of information is a romanian book wrote by Dan Antoniu "The Story of an unkown Fighter" which keeps track of all IAR-80/81 built untill they were all destroyed.The book was made using 100% official notes and the author spent about 10 years with research.

In a couple of days me and some friends will go meet Dan Antoniu that wrote "Istoria unui avion necunoscut I.A.R. 81", we are very curios and want to know about our patriotic plaines...
I will come back with any information we will get
