Which IL2 should I be flying --- I favor the AJ6 cassettes as a loadout --- I have been using the 1943 M3 variant, is this the best choice. : Thanks /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

yesterday evening i was online flying with an il2
and the cassette. I love it to do.
I`m still waiting for coop. I want
to fly together with other il2`s to bomb an airfield.

I also love the il2T. Torpedoing a ship.

3M packs a good punch and stuff but if you want to down some 109's I suggest an earlier version (41 model). If you are hunting for bombers I suggest IL2 I version.
"I" stands for interceptor.You can load only the big cannon and it makes the plane very maneuvrable.
When online is good if you have a rear gunner because they will fire when somebody is on your tail.Then you can start evasive maneuvers.Bear in mind that if you will fly the shturmo online there will be at least 5 jockeys following you.Theye cannot resist the temptation with such a huge prey. Point is that you in your shturmo are much more maneuvrablee than any 109 or 190.Use that to your advantage.They will outfly you and eventually end in front of you. 2-3 seconds , long enough for you to blast'em out! And you'll have A LOT of fun! Especilly that they will be very frustrated.

I want to stay with the AJ6/PHOSPHORUS loadout -- its great at the enemy air strip , do you think the M3 is the best for this task.

If you ask me , anymodel carying that payload is well suited for the task. Only thing is that you mustt return home , if you know what I mean.

i have heard the il2 is quite effective in DF's etc - but have always flown it in a 'bomb the enemy and leave' way.
Could the IL2's could perform this well in RL?

Indeed I do -- /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif -- thats why I wanted to make sure I had the best plane (fastest strongest) -- most of the time they catch me before I get back to base /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I took the IL2-3m into a DF server once. After one of my teammates got shot down he was heard to whine "IL2s don't belong in a DF server."

After my rear gunner and I blasted three enemy down, they told said teammate he didn't know what he was talking about.

hi

just found out that one shouldnt forgett prop-pitch cause u can get much faster when using it the right way. this is very usefull in the heinkel and il2 but also in the fighters. ok u pros possibly knew this before but anyway most people online dont seem to use prop-pitch.

good flight

oh and use CEM too, 120%fuel, open rad till u get into action then close it

Listen,I don't know anything about FM's and stuffs.I drove only once for few minutes and then was a Piper Arrow,not an IL2. For me , if it behaves like that , then I try to use it. Last week in a FI:something server I was downed 2 times but I managed to take out 2 other ILs and 1 Bf109E4.With the guns!If you count the ones I blew up with the rockets while they were still on ground , that makes a very productive night.Now , not everytime this happens but ppl tend to underestimate the IL2.Of course I can't stand any chance agains an experienced jockey , but for that I have the rear gunner,ain't it?
