Cockpit Reference Guide (http://www.airwarfare.com/guides/files/CockpitReferenceGuide1.zip) or if the link doesn't work simply go to the guides and tutorials (http://www.airwarfare.com/guides.htm) section of http://www.airwarfare.com.
(As promised two weeks ago) This is an easy-to-print reference guide of the IL-2/FB/AEP/PF planes' cockpits, with some additional info on each aircraft, addressed mostly to newbies. It is mainly based on the earlier online reference guide of Partizanska Escadrila's PE_Mosor, and it was written with his permission.

It's a 26-pages pdf document which can be printed as is either as a handy booklet on A5 or on A4 (or the equivalent in American standard sizes). Personally i printed it as a booklet (you know, printer settings-> advanced-> ...) and i like it a lot.

It contains almost all, but not all aircraft. I may consider adding the remaining a little later if there is any interest by the IL-2/PF community.

Feel free to write any comments or suggest any corrections.

Excellent stuff!!! But I notice you have left the twin engine bombers out of the guide. Any plans to add those?

Since you want the rest of the planes i'll include them a little later. But not for the rest of the week. I haven't had time to play the game lately, and i think i should. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

and may i add it's much better printed as an a5 booklet (lol, not a3 as i was saying, lol)?

Nice work, thank you for that! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I did it for a couple of planes, too, but your guide includes description of some gauges and levers that I haven't figured out what they are for.

apart from a few instruments and armament allocations which i had to look in books, most of the instruments' identification was done by PE_Mosor. I suppose you are aware of his online cockpit reference guide, also posted in http://www.airwarfare.com.

Not before you started this thread. I found some more views and details there, but your guide is easier to use.

and one last thing. I may have mistakes or you may want to suggest some more useful info for some planes. Tell me so and i will include them in the future. Most of you are much more experienced than i am and your suggestions would be much more useful than my "...avoid altitudes higher than ..." stuff.

The only mistake I've found do far is that the F4U Corsair's designer/manufacturer company is correctly spelled "Vought" not "Vaught" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Does the guide include supercharger altitude settings and fuel mixture altitude settings for each aircraft? Which aircraft are currently NOT included in the guide?

no, that would be too much work and would strip the game of much of its magic. There are some indicated supercharger altitudes for about 10 aircraft just to give the general idea to newbies.

the twin-engine bombers, the I185, the La5, the Volksj├┬Ąger, the Komet and the Beaufighter. I may forget some. Ah, and the Mosquito. No, that's Oleg's omission. Just kidding http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif.

Well, all this information is available to the player, but scattered through various readme's. If you consider hunting through them a "magical" experience, more power to you. This is, of course, information that RL pilots did not figure out through trial and error, after all. I judge a guide based on it's usefulness. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Nice effort, hope it all comes together.

Good work!

Shame about the supercharger settings; and indicating which planes have trim on which axis would be good too.

Poor documentation is seldom "magic".

Bumping this wonderful effort.

To those who have chosen to complain that it isn't the way you want it, edit it, write it in, whatever makes you happy, but don't give the guy grief for doing something nice. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Oops, i just noticed. The photo for the Lagg3 cockpit and the Mig-3 is the same. Nobody noticed. Anyway, now i have to do the improved version and correct those mistakes too. Expect it by early next month.

OK Neural,

Great stuff!
But consider the fact that every real life pilot would have a flight manual I suggest to expand the supercharger/prop/mixt settings to all A/C. That would make it a real nice thing.
It should have been in standart diocumentation anyway as mentioned before.

Say guys, if you really want a guide to supercharger, mixture settings for aircraft feel free to hop on over to the IL-2 online manual and type them in!

It's your guide to IL-2
