Sorry if this appears twice...I just posted this but it seemed to disappear into hyper space.

Hmmm, this seems to be an arcane art for only a handful of those in the know?

I've searched posts and also the 1946 DVD I bought (here in Oz) and there are no instructions/hits/tips on how you guide the X-4 from the Lerche.

Can someone please let me know how I guide them so my rockets don't disappear off in a lovely trail into the middle distance?

Many thanks

You have to assign bombsight keys to guide them. Something like: bombsight increase/decrease altitude, and adjust bombsight to left/right.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

From the Readme file found in the game folder, or by going Start/ Programs/ Ubisoft/ IL-2 Sturmovik 46/ Readme ....

X-4 Rocket

The X-4 air-to-air rocket is wire guided. All rocket-carrying aircraft (Ta-152C, Ta-183 and Heinkel Lerche III) have a single rocket control module, and as such can guide only one rocket at a time. When launching multiple rockets simultaneously, only the last rocket fired can be guided.

To guide the rocket, use the ?Increase Sight Attitude?, ?Decrease Sight Attitude?, ?Adjust Sight Control to Right? and ?Adjust Sight Control to Left? keys. We recommend assigning them to the Up, Down, Right, and Left arrow keys correspondingly.

The easiest way to guide the rocket to target is to fire from the target?s six-o-clock level while flying on the same course. Guide the rocket to keep the lights on top of the target with no visible lateral movement until the moment of impact. Use gentle taps to provide last-minute guidance. The rockets detonate remotely, so no direct impact is required.

This method should be used to attack non-maneuvering heavy bombers from 3,000 to 3,500 meters away.

NOTE: The guiding wire is not visually modeled.

Hope that helps

(Multicontrollered pIL2ots in need of tuning sensitivity settings:IL2-Sticks (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=332)
might come in handy, IL2 Joy Control (By Oleg_BS) (http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=1021) can even be more usefull!)
