Yeah I know I'm WAY behind times and this has more than likely been asked many times before.

The search function isn't working and I don't want to go through 628 pages. Also looked it up on the web, googled it, visited forums and FAQs on IL2 sites and still no luck.

So here goes, I'm going through the campaign, everything is going fine then I reach 1943 and find that JG52 has FW 190A4s.. I was looking forward to flying the G6 since I signed up to fly 109s. Would've been happy sticking with the G2 until the G6 arrived.

Did a search to find out if JG52 flew 190s and in the process found out that they had a "little" fame :P

Then I found out about checking the conf.ini and conf.dat files for the campaign. So my question (finally) is this:
I already flew one mission in the 190A4. Is it possible to change it to the 109G2 until the G6 arrives and if so how do I do it?

The last plane to be flown will be the FW 190D9 with the one before being the BF 109G6late(MK 108 fitted). Was wondering if I could replace the D9 with the G10. K4 would be nice but the campaign ends in Balatov '44.

Thanks in advance!

Here's the data from the conf.dat

II_JG5_2
dir=missions\campaign\de\DGen_F_Crimea41doe0
Language=English
instant=false
Crimea41 BF_109E4
Crimea42 BF_109F4
Kuban42 BF_109F4
Stalingrad BF_109G2
Stalingrad2 BF_109G2
Kuban43 FW_190A4
Prokhorovka BF_109G6
Kubanlate43 BF_109G6
Crimea44 BF_109G6
Lvov44 BF_109G6Late
Balaton FW_190D9

Ok so I did a little test. Started a new campaign. Everything same as before but I chose the 109F4 as the starter aircraft.

Here's the conf.dat

II_JG5_2
dir=missions\campaign\de\DGen_C_Lvov41doe0
Language=English
instant=false
Lvov41 BF_109F4
Barbarossa BF_109F2
Typhoon BF_109F4
Rzhev42 FW_190A4
Kursk FW_190A5
Bagration BF_109G6Late
Lvov44 BF_109G10
Berlin FW_190D9LATE

So I've learned that even though historically JG52 didn't use FW 190s, I didn't 'really' choose to fly the 109 exclusively. That was just my assumption based on the aircraft I started off with.

Still, if it is possible to change the 190s I'd like to know how.

Thanks again,
Fuzzy

About JG52 and their ac's, take look here:

Oct41 Crimea F2
May42 Crimea F4
Aug42 Kuban G2
Sep42 Stalin G2
Feb43 Kuban G2
Jul43 Prokho G6
Sep43 Kuban G6
Apr44 Crimea G6
Jul44 Lvov G6
Feb45 Balato G10 (there is note of G14 being used by 4./JG52 on 14 april 45, I think somewhere in Austria http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).
I have read book about JG52 and their aircraft and this list is approx. their list of aircraft in service (dates are correct, theatres may not be, they are adopted to game campaign needs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif).
About FW190s being used, maybe they were also used, but for *sure* in JG52 that is exception from rule. I did not find sources about FW190 in JG52.(they flew almost exclusively on Bf109s).

I'm also unsure of G6 types being used, by specific JG52 unit.. most likely almost all subvariants were used.

If you want change plane immediatelly, open:
IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\Missions\Campaign\DE\dgen_f_crimea41doe0

find status.dat, in top you will see mission number, theater and *your aircraft type*. Change that aircraft in your desired one.

Next mission after that, you will be flying your new ac.

Thank you for the JG52 aircraft history and for matching the aircraft to my current campaign! That's great, you've saved me some trouble http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's still early '43 in Kuban so I'll stay with the G2 now that I know how to do it. Kudos to you Atomic_Marten!

Thank you very much! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
