Button 4 on stick to drop bombs / droptanks - Ctrl-T to jettison them (dont explode then) and eh... Limited Ammo pls http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Whew! Slow down! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

First, which do you want to do- release drop tanks, or bombs? In either case, if you hit 'escape' while in flight, then click 'controls', you can edit the keystrokes/controller buttons while flying

When the game first starts, when the picture of the Russian plane is on the screen, it should also display your version in red, in the lower lefthand corner

The latest version is jeez...2.04, I think. I look at it all the time and I can't remember! 2.04 feels right, I'm sure someone can verify

I would install the Aces Expansion pack (available retail), and then if I recall, 2.04 is safe to install over that

Joysticks are pretty much a matter of taste, i can't tell YOU what's best for you. I love my Saitek X45 HOTAS controller


A quick question- are you playing Il*2 Sturmovik, or Il*2 Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles? My advice above is for Il*2 Sturmovik:Forgotten Battles. No support exist now for the original Il*2.

last i heard you had to install 2.01 then 2.04, but i may be mistaken

edit: lol but back to your question, yeah i think you have bomb release confused with jettison droptanks, like that guy said button 4 on joystick

You need Forgotten battles (2 cd's) then Ace Expansion pack (1 CD) then patch 2.01 (REQUIRED) then patch 2.04 to get up to date on Forgotten Battles.

You can also fly FB without AEP - then you need FB then Patch 122_over10.exe

All patches for FB :

For Il2 Sturmovik you need - ya guessed - the Sturmo CD then 1.1a then 1.2 to get to current version 1.2

On the subject of dropping armenents. Is there anyway to drop those bazooka rocket tubs once they have been used and are empty? I remember another flight sim game had this option and I found it very useful.
