There should be a .pdf version of the manual in the game folder once you've installed it.

Welcome to the community m8. When I first started this journey into the IL2 series, I was asking for someone to get online with me and teach me the fine art of DF'ing. That's how pumped up I was. I got a lot of responses, mainly telling me to read books and different web sites with good information. But the main advice was, keep on flying and getting shot down. loll Not my cup of tea because I was never in the air long enough to learn anything, except how to eject. loll You should consider joining a squad. That is where I got the most benefit and training. There are plenty out there.

Welcome to the boards!

The important part is to have fun, all the other things will come with a bit of training. I suggest you fool around with the Quick Mission Builder first to get to know some of the planes. Find your self one you like, perhaps fly a campaign. Then get some friends together, hook op your computers and play against each other, or go online.

But first and foremost: Have fun!
