Can you be patient?

You can't swap mid campaign without editing some files. Post your question in the Community Support or Mission Builder forums, that's where the experts on this sort of thing hang out.

As some of the experts live in different time zones to you and may be asleep, and all of them have lives that sometimes take them away from the forums (believe it or not http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) you may have to wait a day or so for an answer, but it will come eventually IF YOU ARE PATIENT.

In the original Il-2 you have to edit the mission .mis files to change plane type for each mission. Forgotten Battles has a different campaign system and I don't know how its done there(and neither do I own it).

To change your plane type open Missions/Campaign/Ru/Il-2/whatever's your next mission.mis
in notepad.

Find where it says something like
[your regiment]
Planes 4
Skill 2
Class air.IL_2Type3M
Fuel 75
weapons 2xFAB1004BRS132

and put whatever plane you want after Class air. An example would be YAK_1B, or LA_5FN. Someone on this forum should have the codes for all the planes. You might also want to edit the properties file so the mission description matches the mission. Every other campaign mission can, of course, be changed in an analogous way.

However since you are flying the original Il-2, the campaigns are scripted(pre-made), which in my opinion is not all that inferior to dynamic campaigns, but what it means is that you will still be doing ground attack missions, and a Yak-3 won't do a great job of blowing up tanks. So if you want to fly fighters start the fighter campaign...

Edit: I don't know what happens if you leave an invalid loadout for the new plane. I'd change that as well...
