I recently bought the IL2 Forggoten Battles Goldpack, and it came with no manual. I enjoy the game, but I there's quite a bit that I don't understand about it. I found a .pdf 'guide' at a site called Eastern Skies, but it hasn't answered very many questions (whats the difference between a BRS rocket and an RS rocket? What's the difference between an SC bomb and a FAB bomb? Can you kill a pilot/tailgunner with a well placed shot? etc)

Does anyone know where I could find answered the questions like that?

Thanky in advance,
Anthony Edge

That Eastern Skies manual is as good as it gets.

If you have specific questions, ask them here on the forum but, really, Google is your best friend. Every time you find a resource, check the links and bookmark the good ones.

Here's a good site on FB weapons (A BRS is a shaped charge for armor, RS is an HE warhead):

As for killing tail gunners, I recently killed my first Stuka tail gunner in two and a half years of flying this sim. The score is now Stuka Tail Gunners: 10,000, tttiger: 1 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Welcome and good luck. You really just need to sit down and start searching. There's so much out there, it's hard to list it all. Just get on Google and go where your curiosity takes you.
