Hi... I'm working my way through the offline campaign in the original IL-2 in the Fighter role. So far I've only flown Lagg's & Mig's. Will I ever get to fly the P-39?

Yes, somewhere around Crimea, but if you're just at the Mig's, it's a long way there.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I haven't gotten to the P-39 one yet, but just wondering. Do the P-39 missions focus on air combat or ground missions?

Hi guys

I played the original Il2 Russian Fighter campaign, don't remember especifically when you get it but you definetely will near the end of the campaign.

You'll have to deal with air and ground attacks, but i have to say that i hated that plane..its tendency to stall was a pain in the a.s. You had to make very quiet moves on the stick, its firepower was very attractive nevertheless.

I just completed that campaign before jumping to FB, in wich i'm playing simultaneously a German Fighter and a Russian fighter campaign. Haven't received the p39 yet, but i tried it once in QMB. I must say that its FM was deeply changed and now its a lot easier to fly.

You must also considerer that thre are different versions of the P39, the latter ones incorporated huge modifications proposed to engineers by Russian Pilots (focusing mainly on reducing that tendency to stall) in real life, so this aspects are also considered in Il2 FB.

Good flight to you !

Nonsense, I verified the joints twice!: This was the answer given by chief Mechanic Klaus Stoeffel to Oberst Lotar Von M├╝llenbrock when he complained about some strange vibrations in the wings of his Me-262 during take off. This picture show that Oberst Von M├╝llenbrock's fears were in fact quite real.
