Additional Information about the I-185

We're including these two aircraft as a token of gratitude to V. Loginov - the
founder of the sukhoi.ru resource that was very supportive throughout the year
of creation of the Il-2; and with esteem to his grandfather, who had the honour
of test-flying these two.

I-185 M-82, 1941

Type: multi-role fighter.

Weight:
Take-0ff: 3,735 kg
Full loaded: 3,825 kg

Length: 8.1 m
Wingspan: 9.8 m
Wing area: 15.53 sq. m

Engine: 1 x M-82
Power:
Take-off: 1,600 HP
Indicated: 1,390 HP

Top speed:
Ground Level: 549 km/h
At 6,170 m: 615 km/h

Time to climb to 5,000 m: 6 min

Ceiling: 10,450 m
Range: 1,380 km

Armament:
3x20mm ShVAK cannons
500 kg of bombs

I-185 with the M-82 engine was intended to be the I-185 with increased
armament. Instead of two large-caliber and two small-caliber machine guns the
I-185 M-82 was equipped with three 20mm ShVAKs. In addition to that the plane
also had a redesigned canopy, gear struts and fuselage. Altogether two
prototypes were built; the first flew on July 21st 1941. Both I-185 M-82s
participated in front-line trials between December of 1942 and January 1943.

Advantages:
Excellent speed characteristics
Ease of control
Powerful armament

Disadvantages:
Slower climb rate than I-185 M-71.

I-185 M-71 (production standard), 1942

Type: multi-role fighter.

Weight:
Take-0ff: 3,735 kg
Full loaded: 3,825 kg

Length: 8.05 m
Wingspan: 9.8 m
Wing area: 15.53 sq. m

Engine: 1 x M-71
Power:
Take-off: 2,000 HP
Indicated: 1,625 HP

Top speed:
Ground Level: 600 km/h
At 6,170 m: 680 km/h

Time to climb to 5,000 m: 4.7 min

Ceiling: 10,000 m
Range: 835 km

Armament:
3x20mm ShVAK cannons
500 kg of bombs

The I-185 prototype equipped with the M-71 engine which first flew on June 10,
1942 was designated a "production standard", i.e. a prototype which was to be
used as a standard for future production. Compared to other prototypes of the
series many defects were resolved and the overall aerodynamics improved. The
I-185 M-71 production standard was built from the blueprints intended for
serial production.

The I-185 M-71 production standard, in addition to the I-185 M-71 #6204 and two
I-185 M-82 went through front line combat testing between December of 1942 and
January of 1943. Speed and climb rate of this prototype were vastly superior to
all contemporary Soviet fighters. However due to political reason and lobbying
from Polikarpov's enemies the project never entered production and was
cancelled.

Advantages:
Excellent speed characteristics
Excellent climb rate
Ease of control
Powerful armament

Disadvantages:
Uncomfortable throttle lever

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

______________

CCJ: What do you define as the most important things a fighter pilot must know to be successful, relating to air combat maneuvering?

Robert S. Johnson :
It's pretty simple, really. Know the absolute limits of your plane's capabilities.
Know its strengths and weaknesses. Know the strengths and weaknesses of you enemy's fighters. Never fight the way your enemy fights best. Always fight the way you fight best. Never be predictable.

In "Fighter Aces," aviation historians Raymond Tolliver
and Trevor Constable compared Johnson's record with that of two German aces.
Werner Molders was the first ace to score 100 aerial victories and Erich Hartmann is the top scoring ace of all time with 352.

The authors noted that
Johnson "emerges impressively from this comparison." He downed 28 planes in 91 sorties, while Molders took 142 sorties to do the same, and Hartmann, 194.

I have got the patch il2_AEP_201.EXE but i would very much appreciate a little advice. When i open file i am asked to which folder i want to extract to, this is the folder auto created to use.

unzip folder \il-2 sturmovik forgotten battles

The reason i ask is that i installed both Forgotten battles and AEP on a partition D:\
so do i hit Browse and extract to D:\ sturmovik
or is it fine to just let it extract to where it wants!!!..Help please....
I got the patch because i managed to play online [ a little...Ha got slaughtered !] most players are using game with this patch.

This should probbaly not be a sticky anymore. Right now we have had two patches since 2.01 (one leaked, one not released) and a third is in the works. This'll just get peoples hopes up.
