The Ju88 is an "AI only" plane. Like all such planes, it can't be flown by humans in single player or coop games. Some DF server are able to allow it using an edit of the mission files, but as it has no cockpit it can only be flown from external view in that mode.

Some German fighter have ammo guages next to the gun sights (vertical bar gauges, one for each gun). On other aircraft you have to count ammo "by feel". If you're flying the same type all the time you'll get a pretty good feel for when you're about to run out of ammo.

This might be a nice tip for you.

The following is a self-extracting ZIP file containing an online mission with 4 bases and ALL planes enabled (you can fly the AI planes too), YOU should point it to the missions/net/dogfight/1/ folder under FB on drive C: or whatever drive you installed FB+AEP on.

Don't edit it in the Full Mission Builder though - then the AI planes will be no longer flyable.

To fly an AI plane - first select a "normal" plane (one with a cockpit). To only sit in the cockpit is already enough. Then press Esc key and select "Refly" option (This is the point when you get your Score online and can refuel/rearm your plane). Now select the AI plane and arm it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif then go fly again...
Once in-game press F8 key .... that's you flying. You can only use external views to fly an AI.

To play this mission Offline you select Multiplay in main screen - then Create Server - and select dogfight. Then you'll see the Kuban1 mission under the '1' folder there.

After it was refeuled i climbed in.With many manipulations the mechcanics started the turbines.I followed their actions with the greatest of interest.The first one started quite easily.the second caught fire.In no time the whole engine was on fire.Luckily as a fighter pilot i was used to getting quickly out of the cockpit.The fire was quickly put out.The second plane caused no trouble - Adolf Galland (first time in a ME262)

Is there any way to fly the sea planes? I'd love to take up the Catalina!
