View Full Version : Nice moments with il-2

I'm pretty sure most of us had a few nice moments with IL-2, FB and now 1946. Not necessarily down to personal skill and great personal records, maybe just coincidence and fun. Why don't you share?

Quite a while ago I was flying a P-47D-22 and was returning from a ground attack mission. At the same time someone in the opposing team in a Fw 190A-6 had done his duty and was also rtb. We happened to cross our paths on the way back. We found each other co alt at high speeds, heading more or less towards each other. We both didn't want to turn away from the enemy and invite him to our rear quarter, so we just made minor corrections and went in head on. Brute force met brute force. Closing speeds were high and the entire fight didn't last more than 0.5 seconds. We let lose at each other and scored hits immediately, but our tough planes took them without falling apart. When we had passed each other, none of us even thought about turning around, both happy to survive the situation. Our planes poured smoke, had holes in the wings at mine at least had suffered a few additional hits. We both made it back to base which felt like a victory to both of us.

What I liked about this moment was not only the intensity of the fight, but the fact that both of us focused on survival and thus immediately perceived that draw as a personal victory.

if your focus is on survival, i'd advise you never to go head to head against a focke wulf

Nice story JtD!

It's been some time since I shifted my priorities from scoring kills to:

1st surviving the mission

2nd accomplishing the assigned task.


Unfortunately not many people think that way and it's hard at times to find people that share the same thoughts on priorities (even within the squad).

Best time I had playing IL2 was a few weekends back.. I was flying this loaded P38.. Took out all the AAA at this base and was RTB when my girl friend step out of the bath room shower with nothing but a towel wrapped around here head. She said "How is your joystick working?" At which point I did a ctrl-alt-del shut the PC off.

I would like to point out at this time that statements like the above could be percieved as giving vital info to the enemy and (as my girlfriend often reads over my shoulder) could result in players being shot down, unexplained disconnects and general de-population of the server. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

AKA_TAGERT, very nice!

A stand out moment for me was some time ago. I was flying a bf 109E, and attacking a flight of Russian c37 and Mig 2's. I attacked the c37 from their 6 o'clock high, given the fact that they only had 1 gun I thought I was in for an easy kill. I nosed down and put on full power, when I was still 700mts out the c37 opend up. By chance its first burst hit my engine and the 109 started somking with oil all over the cockpit! (What are the chances?) I turned away to look for a place to land.

Finding a nice looking area I started my final. It was then I saw them, two migs closing fast. There was no way I could get out of this one, I had gear down and almost full full flaps, I was commited. I decided I still try for the landing and hope that even if they did hit me hard I'd be close enough to the ground to be OK.

I had just started to flare and the first tracers whipped past the cockpit. Then BOOM! A mig struck the ground just ahead of me the other roared over head left wing gone and did a lazy roll into the ground. They had hit each other!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
I was that destracted I broke my landing gear, but I walked a happy man, if a captive of the USSR!

a moment I often remember happened on Zeke vs Wildcat ...I was flying a P-47 high up and someone called in teamspeak and said he had a bandit on his tail and needed assistance... I noticed they were way down below me and behind heading in the same direction I was going... I did a split S, waited for my team mate to pass under my nose then opened up on the bandit, I scored hits but before he exploded we collided lmao...

I immediately apologized for the accidental ramming and we had a laugh about it... I don't think he even saw me...

but I saved my team mate, eventhoug the result was the same.. a plane lost for our team lol.

Many times I've returned to my base with an FW looking like a sieve, engine all shot up and barely managing to keep it in the air.

This after taking on as many as 6 P51's with a few other FW's. Only to have the other FW's taken out too quickly, finding myself in a pickle. Taking out 3 P51's as the battle dispersed a bit, but then having the other 3 latching on to my embattled plane.
It was a low-level twist and turning, up and down, mowing the lawn, trip to the border, taking hits, but nothing serious as I kicked hard on rudder, playing the throttle and flaps, controlled stalls and rolls at 20-50 feet. A 5-10 minute trip seeming like eternity, watching another P51 bury itself in the dirt, and the Whoots as I see blue tracers streak pass me and the low engine roar as other FW's join the battle, as I cross the border....

'Freddie has landed' message appears on the server a few minutes later.

How could he get away, from right over the enemy airbase ??? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Here's a funny moment. I talked two friends into getting the game, (both had some flight sim experience, but not with IL2). The first time we met online in a private server and we all took different bases and were on seperate teams. As I see them both approaching, we are all on coms and I hear them say "maneuver number three" as they pair up and start heading my way. I'm thinking, they have maneuvers already?, what gives. They split apart one left high one right high. I stay level and figure I'm soon to be in a crossfire. They both slowly turn towards each other, getting a bit confused in the turn, they start firing at each other (thinking each one was me) and collided head on in a terrific explosion. I laughed so hard it hurt. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Maneuver number three!, what a hoot.

..now that the F/A-18 mod is out and FC runs way smooth on the new rig...

If you've got Lomac get FC and then get the Loman utility - it makes that sim much easier to tweak and addon to.

Even if you don't like jet combat - there is nothing wrong with using its mission generator to set up carrier traps day or night, fair or foul weather. Especially if you have upgraded your rig recently.

I rememeber countless great moments online, from my first kill (still remember his nick 5 years later) to wonderful intense dogfights.

Among the best, I still smile recalling my 8 years old son (he's almost 12 now) who used to take my place online during pauses, and flying on his Hurri scored much more points than me ... we were both laughing like crazy ... it was real fun then to reveal to discorned opponents the hard thruth ...

Other funny moments are when, having someone on your 6, you're able to dive a little and play the corkscrew manouvre, ending up on his six still with enoug speed to follow and blow him up ... the usual reactions are either an immediate disconnection by frustration, or funny accusations of cheating ...

That's a classic, AKA_TAGERT: "How's the joystick working?" LMAO .. forgive me for I have simmed.

Two moments come to mind. One is from Zeke Vs Wildcats where a large flight of line abreast Vals half rolled one after the other and went vertical to bomb a carrier. For a second I forgot it was just a game. The second moment is my first kill on Dark Skies server. I was in a clip wing Spit and the bandit was carrying a bomb on his 109. Hunting him near his base I suddenly saw him in the rear view mirror and pushed forward into a corkscrew and got a lucky shot as our noses crossed. Reviewing the track later I saw how crafty he was in hunting the hunter. After he spotted me over his base he dropped his bomb when the AAA started so as to cover the sound of the exlosion then he just crept up on me from slightly below. I suddenly had the impulse to look into the mirror just before he pulled the trigger.

Flying a B-25 on a deep strike mission during one of our WWBattles against a couple of other squads. Ingress to target was uneventful but the flak batteries at the target were heavy. Was almost like you see in the war films with bursts going off everywhere. There was clanging and banging as shrapnel hit but nothing major. Just as the last bomb fell away two hard flak bursts killed my top turret gunner and set the right engine on fire.

The engine started to run away so I selected it, shut it down, feathered etc. Fire was still burning so I put her in a shallow dive. 5000 feet later the fire was out, but was a long way from home.

I managed to nurse the wounded bird almost home when a 109 jumped me. I jinked as best you can in a B-25 with one engine and he botched his closing speed and overshot me. For a split second he was in my crosshairs and I fired. I got a few hits on his wing and fuel leak but didn't kill him. He had enough though and broke off.

Airfield in sight, start a slight descent, but the 109 had holed my wing tank and fuel was rapidly dropping. In slowing down to make the approach the engine fire restarted. The hard strain on the remaining left engine had it overheating. 2000 feet to the runway and I'm hearing the left engine stat that familiar grinding sound.

200 feet off the deck and 500 feet from the runway the fuel tank on the right side caught fire. I was too low to bail.

Just as I crossed the threshold the left engine quit from lack of fuel. I touched down and began braking hard. Got it to a stop but the fire was raging on the right wing and engine. I hit the bail button.

Just as my little pilot dove to the deck the B-25 exploded. She gave everything she had to get us home. I was safe.

At that moment the P-47 squadmate of mine who was supposed to have been escorting me landed and ran over my little pilot and killed me.

I laughed for 20 minutes straight.

I've got a bunch, but one of my favorites happened a couple or three years ago in a coop. Me and a couple other guys would nightly roam the virtual skies in P-11c's (back when the P-11c was a bit more robust than today's version). I think that night, we were flying Latvian skinned P-11's against oncoming TB3's and I-153's. Always made for a good time.

A fella that went by "Lokutuz" flew with us frequently. He's a Pole and the best P-11 pilot in the game, hands down. Only that night, he took a TB3. I made numerous passes at his crate in my P-11. I may have scored a hit or two. Then, his nose gunner got me leaking fuel like you wouldn't believe. I knew I didn't have much time, so I headed for my lines.

I didn't get 1000 yards before the tank ran dry. Looking around for a likely spot to ditch, I see that infernal TB3 lumbering towards me. Not much I could do about that-- I made a beautiful landing on a little dirt road. Going external, I see Lok getting lower and slower right in line with my ditched bird. The engine noise getting louder and louder. It's moving so slow; is it a zeppelin or an airplane? Lower and lower.

About a 150 yards out, I see these tiny pairs of objects start dropping out of the TB3. I don't recall what loadout it is, but it's those tiny things (50kg)?, there must be 100 of them. A line of small explosions march right up and over my P-11. I didn't even think to bail. But I did think to get a screenshot. I'll have to find it now.

I don't know if anyone else found it funny, but as I watched that TB3 poke on along its lazy way behind the smoking plume of my wrecked out shell of an airplane, I sure got a kick out of it.

I have two that immediately come to mind:


1. When recently having joined my current squad (vultures row) We were flying the virtual campaign againts the AI in Stalingrad, flying from the russian side. A squadmate was leading, with my flying wing (the 2 ai had died I believed) and we began to head north climbing with 80% PP and throtle (trying to save fuel, we had just had a fight and needed to get far to cover bombers). As we are climbing all slow, we get jumped by 4 109's from above and behind. I call a break and we each break differnt ways. With each of us with 2 109's on him at 3k meters we began defensive manouvers. After 10 minutes of very hard, nervewrecking, and hand sweating battle, we came out victorious having claimed 3 of the 4 109s, with the 4th badly injure going home.

2. Lately there has been 3-4 of our squad who go into ZvW in the later evening. We decided to take up a few betty's and go on a low low bombing run. After getting lose and finally dropping, we were heading back base at 1k meters when we got jumped by something like 4 fighters (P-38's, P-40s). What made it so memorable was that both sides did everything as they should have. With our 3 betty's flying in a tight V formation (.2-.4 km from each other the whole way) we were almost impregnable. The fighters attacked very nicely, from high 10 and 2 oclock positions, not giving our gunners very much of a chance to shoot them down. In the end, we got one of the fighters and the three of us died (one had engine shot off, the other two blew up when the new lead got his wing taken off and crashed into the ground, blowing up the betty that was left).

Two very enjoyable times, and quiet different. I am sure there have been more, but those are two that come to mind right now.

- Flying a CR 42, got into a dogfight with an La-7 (by now you've figured out this is a DF map). Twisting and turning, i decided to head for his airbase a few k's away. I noticed there was a 109K coming dead on for me. I tapped off about 10 rounds and flew past, not bothering to turn with him (La-7 chasing remember). About 30 seconds later, a get a kill sign - I must have taken the pilot straight out! Fighting over the air base, in the process of shooting down another plane when BANG, I explode - the imfamous "look at me and I'll explode" Fiat fuel tanks living up to their name.

-Another one, flying an He-111 on a scripted map, flying all properly, with height, no externals, navigating etc, attempting to bomb ships (I've never gotten the nack of level bombing), getting bounced by Hurris and desperately calling for help - it was one of those massively immersive moments where you really dont wanna get shot, you feared for your virtual life. Eventually made it back to base with smoking engine, wounded crew, no ailerons...finals was VERY tense, but I made it down http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif < me kissing the ground

- Another one, p!ssfarting around on a DF map, a good mate of mine and me both flying B-25's, trying them into a furball and treating them like a fighter, ahh good times.

Two off the top of my head .... the first way back in IL2 days. I was taking off in a La5FN with my base under attack from enemy planes. I could see an enemy bomber boring in almost directly pointed down the length of the runway. I had just frantically raised my gear when the bomber, a Heinkel 111, loomed above me. I jerked up my nose and sprayed his cockpit. He immediately nosed over and crashed on the runway -enemy aircraft destroyed! Right behind him - like he was riding his tail - was a lumbering Pe-8. I had just enough speed to raise my nose again and spray HIS cockpit with cannon fire. This time the bomber slowly banked and drifted down to its doom - in a mighty mushroom cloud that obscured my base - he had obviously been carrying a FAB 5000. No matter that my airfield no longer existed ....
The second was more recent (in Forgotten Battles) - I fought another guy in a duel of He-111s. He suggested it and we made one pass and started to "dogfight". At first we tried to get on each other's 6, frantically jumping from station to station in our planes, but we realized after a while that fighting in planes like this is more like two ships from the age of sail manoeuvering to deliver a broadside. In fact, I gained a decisive advantage when he got on my tail and I was able to pepper him from both the dorsal and ventral gun positions. His engines started to smoke and another long, slow death slide began ....
I can think of many more, but I am a very slow typist .....

One of the coolest moments in the Il-2 plane was a few years back when I flew the then new dynamic campaigns of FB. The mission was to destroy enemy targets hidden in a city. Me and my squad had attacked the targets, expended bombs and rockets, yet here and there a few units remained. I decided I'd finish them with the powerful cannons. Admittedly I was getting greedy, impatient and therefore a little careless going after my business. After I had completed another pass, suddenly, I found myself really low - with a house right in front of me. I yanked the stick has hard a I could, applied rudder and forced the plane - way too slowly - to the top right. Half a second later I felt the inevitable shaking of my plane - the house had had contact with my wing. And as I looked out of my left window, I could see the aileron was missing, but the rest was there. I had just clipped the fully deployed aileron on the house. Must have been a matter of centimeters. I figured that that had been close enough and went home.

I like your anecdotes, the run over pilot is hilarious. Thanks for sharing.

One funny moment I recall was the first time I tried the Mistel combo. One of my college roommates had just got his joystick set up, and I decided to see how it felt compared to mine. I had never flown the Fw-190/Ju-88 Mistel monster, so I decided to give it a go. While on the runway with engines idling, I asked him which button he had assigned to lower the flaps. I must have pressed the wrong button because I inadvertently DROPPED the Ju-88 under me. It destroyed the ENTIRE airfield, and I was shocked by the mushroom cloud! I ended up with a score of something like -10,000. After seeing the sweet killing power and mushroom cloud, we decided to set up our mission with it. We ended up 'nuking' the old Imperial Palace in Leningrad! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif

I was in a dogfight room om my own about 4 years ago flying an il2. Only one enemy and he too was flying an il2.

The dogfight lasted about 10 mins and we managed to score a few hits on each other. At the end we both had to land and in the same field because of damage http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif.

We had both been fighting to our limits and agreed that it was VERY intense dogfight http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif.

We have been friends ever since and shared a real beer or three together...

I think that you can tell a lot about a guy by the way he flies... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Best Regards,
