Gentlemen,
I never can fully understand the abbreviations for all the various weapons that can be chosen when setting up a single mission. The manual doesn't describe these. Some examples are:
-8xBRS-82
-30xAO-10
-4xFAB-100
-2xVAP-250
- ...etc
I can usually guess, or go to "Aircraft Customization" and select one at a time while looking at the picture that shows the aircraft (which then changes to show the weapon underneath the plane).But it would be easier to just have a chart. Is there a list that describes what all the weapon load-out abbreviations stand for?
Thanks,
DCO57

There isnt one that ships with the game, no. But there is Hardball's aircraft viewer which also contains information on weapons.

http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=325

Once installed, open up the program and you will see a bomber icon at the lower left side of the window, which will display ordnance data for the weapons in the game.

Many thanks for most comprehensive list HaVok.
Older users (in time not age) will remember that the Original IL-2 Manual was most comprehensive and in addition to weapon & cargo info was also very good in that under the Training heading it covered: Theory of Flight; Basic Flt manoeveres; and most importantly ACM. It was over 80 pages long.
I no longer have a hard copy. Gave it to my grandson with the Original disc when I got FB. However, I do have PDF copies in English, German, French, Italian and Dutch. Each about 1 Meg.
Don't have ability to post a link (there may be one already anyway).
However, happy to send a copy via e-mail if PM'd, (specify which language).
Afterthought: strange there isn't a Russian version!

Russian version of the game was a totally different distributor I believe.

To the original poster: Download one or more of the following programs -

IL2Compare
Hardballs Viewer
Il2Wingman

The last two are available at :
