Not all of the AEP aircraft appear in the 'view objects' lists. Is this going to be fixed? I want to read about the planes!!

What type of cannon is that I see in the new stuka?

Can someone tell me how to use the new stuka's bomb sight effectively?

Can someone tell me how to use the Mistel effectively? Man I just can't get this one right.

I'll probably have a few more questions as soon as I can remember them...

Thanks for making me feel like an AEP n00b! I don't have it and don't know the answers to any of these... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Very possibly you won't be able to read about any of the new aircraft in the Object Viewer, but this could be a problem with the installation. Anyone?

As for the Stuka and Mistel I have no idea. Only bomber I fly is Il-2 and that seldom.

The missing stuff isn't because of a bad install though, its just not there period.

Rumors float around that contain that patch word.

The "not everything in the object viewer" is normal. Most objects that don't appear are lastminute additions. I assume that they'll be added in the upcoming patch.

The cannons in the D-5's wings are 20mm.

As for the stuvi sight : input you bombing altitude, your dive speed, go into a shallow dive, and, hopefully, you'll see a small bar on the lowerpart of the gunsight. That's the impact point.

The mistel : i have no idea, i suck at it as well http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ahh, the Mistel. I cant hit crap with it. The readme file says to cut throttle to 35%, hold course for a few seconds and let her loose. I still cant hit crap with it.. hehe.

The Stuvi is very very accurate if you input the data properly. The readme also explains the step by step process on it.

And, as said, the D-5 has 151/20 cannon. Great for light tanks and ground cars. They appear to use AP rounds only, so they will take out a light tanks pretty easily. I recommend hitting them from a high angle or low on the sides of the tanks. Frontal attacks will yield lots of ricochettes (SP?)

Finally, with the additional bomb loadouts, the Stuka is an effective mud mover! And they are just so damned sexy looking too!
