Hi, I'm new to this forum. I recently started playing IL-2 and my favorite plane is Stuka. I play a dynamic campaign and I'm getting a lot of "destroy any vehicles" missions. And this is the problem: The successful dive attack have to be made from above 3500m (or feet, I'm not sure), but at that altitude I CAN NOT see vehicles. The only way I can do some damage is low flight, locating vehicles, and then strafing run and engaging with my guns. Is there any way to overcome this problem or is it supposed to be like this? (Btw, other Stukas in my squadron don't seem to have this problem http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This is a real problem in the campaigns that come with the game. The AI (computer controlled aircraft) can see vehicles from an infinte distance and will dive to attack when you see nothing. By the time you get down to attack altitude all the trucks are destroyed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Several solutions:
1) Try to start the campaign at a high rank (so that the AI planes follow you and won't dive before you). Look for AAA fire to indicate a vehicle convoy and attack before the AI.

2) Watch the minimap and try to outsmart your AI wingmen and dive before they do.

3) Cheat: use external views to scout out the enemy ground targets (if cameras are provided). From ground level look for your plane and determine where the ground targets are and dive before the other planes in your flight.

You can try my SBD campaigns as I provide plenty of targets. No Stukas, but you do get to dive bomb.

Go to in game controls and scroll down to &gt; 'toggle TOV' map a key to that control on your keyboard or joystick that way you'll be able to zoom in and out of the target area , also try mapping one key to 'paddle lock enemy ground'
on and off .

By the way, the Stuka is the Ju-87.
