I don't know how realistic it is, but I played a quick mission in an IL-2 1941 (3 series) and was blasting He-111s out of the sky. I scored three kills before running out of ammo. The firepower is amazing compared to your usual fighter and of course lots of protection against those pesky defensive gunners.

Try that with a human flown formation. Like my squad for example. A close formation of bombers with concentrated fire will perforate the IL2. You need more speed to deal death in real engagements.

The IL-2l is a dedicated bomber interceptor. It works wonders as long as there arn't fighter escorts.

Get altitude, then attack at a high angle. The IL-2 can achieve decent speed in dives. If your aim is true, a single IL-2 can take out LOTS of bombers. It has the greatest firepower out of all planes, hands down--plus a good ammo load.

I love the IL-2 for bomber intercept.

Series 1 with 16xRS82 rockets.... bomber gruppe killer.
All the shvak cannon do damage to, lots of ammo also.

IL-2 first series are killers.. not only you have those ├╝ber ruskie rockets (they dont affect the perfomance of the plane at all) along with sturdiness, and excelent manouvarability.. hell you can outturn 109 F-series with IL-2 first series.. they are far from beeing flying coffins. Too bad germans never captured them, so they could down B-17s with IL-2s /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
