I am a big fan of the ground attack missions in the IL2. Pretty good of-line. Whant to try offline, preferably coop missions. Where to go? Any suggestions?

Try the UBI game server or Hyperlobby. I have to warn you though that bombers in general don't live very long in these games. Get someone to escort you. Most games don't have a problem with bombers attacking the othersides airbases. The Greatergreen server in Hyperlobby has a lot of missions that require bombers by one side or the other.

I Join dog fight servers - I get in an IL-2 loaded with AJ6 cassettes (1943) and make a wide swing to the enemy air base and try to wipe out the base and a few planes about to take off (for big points when I touch down back at base)... I accomplish this most times -- the problem is getting back to home base (LOL) its like I knocked down a hornet's nest.... Radio ahead for HELP on the way back YOU will need it. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hey Snoop! Drop by our server sometime http://www.greatergreen.com/il2
We could always use a few more ground pounders to help with the ground targets in the scripts. Many usually just take out fighters or fighter/bombers, but there are plenty of maps with the IL2 available. The server is up 24/7 (unless it's been hacked! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) and usually has some decent pilots on.

It works well usually for ground pounders as the enemy icons are always off and it IS possible to sneak in and out.

I'd suggest two things:

1) Join a squad.
2) Fly online wars- VEF, VOW, Forgotton Skies. VEF seems to be the most popular. You'll have actual missions and objectives. And if you're really lucky, you'll have escorts on your ground attack missions. Immersive, sometimes frustrating but always fun.

I second the recommendations of greatergreen (through hyperlobby). It's the only online server I've found where you can sneak past enemy fighters, and you really have to look to find your targets (no padlock). It's so much fun.

The only problem is that I have never used CEM. I've heard that this thing is very messy...

Snoopy,
Be on the lookout for some TX members on HL or Ubi... We always work with bombers on coordinated bombing runs with fighter cover.... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Salute!

I've got IL2 ground-pounding coop missions, and I host them in Hyperlobby, when I can find players to join.

I have made a movie, Sturmovik! based on one of my coop missions.

Go here:

then go to "Forums" "IL2 - Forgotten Battles" and you will see my movie available for downloading at the top of the list.
