Having problems with the padlock.
F4 (padlock enemy) is locking on My wingmen,
"most" of the time it wont lock on enemy directley in front of Me.

EAW's padlock was very strait foward and predictable, but I cant seem to get IL-2's to function consistantly.

any in depth "how to's" around how to use it ?

Many Thanks,
Nick

If you enable icons "padlock enemy" will only target enemys, w/o icons and the padlock will target what ever aircraft is closest to the center of your reticule.

The best padlock settings are:

"off"
