I was just reading an aviation encyclopedia and it shows the Japanese flying boat H8K as an "Emily" not a "Mavis".

In fact, the book says the "Mavis" is a H6K, which is a completely different looking bird.

Did Oleg get it wrong or is the naming issue from one of the mods I have installed? I cant remember what was in the original installation.

Are there any other obvious errors except for performance errors in the game?

I've never heard the nickname "Mavis" in IL-2 either. I think you have something that was either faked for a campaign or added as a new mod.

They are not always the best historical reference for skins (plenty of artistic license occurs) but they certainly can look fantastic.

My apologies to Oleg

Its seems its a DCG thing! As I play the majority of IL2 missions using DCG I didnt notice that DCG was the cause of the naming error
