Since there are so many new folks here I thought I would post this link to several sites that IMO are essential...not only to IL2 but to simming in general. For convenience I have put color codes on the links. Please note that most of the links marked <span class="ev_code_BLUE">Websites</span> are very dynamic and they usually contain reference materials,files and utilities and should be thoroughly browsed through. Sites with <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">*****</span> are <span class="ev_code_YELLOW"> Essential Essentials</span> either due to function or content.
