Is it possible to land the Lerche? If so, how?

Very well explained in the PDF manual included in the DVD! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

No it ain`t, Well not in the manual but it`s
covered in the Aircraft guide which is on the DVD and in the Readme in the game file


"Heinkel Lerche III

The aircraft is quipped with automatic stabilization auto-pilot that keeps the aircraft vertical during take-off and landing. The system is toggled with the "Airbrake" key. The white indicator lights on the instrument panel illuminate when the system is switched on.

Unlike most other fighters, the "Toggle Gunsight" button (Shift-F1 by default) switches the view to point downwards, at the instrument panel and the ground below.

Take-off procedure in the aircraft is simple. Toggle the stabilization auto-pilot on and slowly increase engine power. Reaching 200-300 meters of altitude push the nose down slowly to convert to horizontal flight, and disengage the stabilization auto-pilot.

The landing procedure is more involved. Firstly, select suitable area for landing. Landing approach is standard, with speeds of around 250-300 km/h, with the stabilization auto-pilot turned on (one white indicator light). At 25-30 meters of altitude begin a flare at 10 to 20 degrees nose-up attitude. The active stabilization auto-pilot will engage (second white indicator light). Level the elevators at that time. The stabilization auto-pilot will attempt to keep the aircraft vertical. Do not increase engine power at this time, as this may cause too much altitude to be gained. Do not chop the throttle below 25%, as this may lead to a stall or loss of effectiveness of the gas-powered stabilization mechanism.

After the aircraft is stabilized vertically, slowly decrease power to descent. Aircraft with expanded ammunition and low fuel will hover at approximately 35 to 40% of throttle. When descending, vertical speed of no more than 5 m/s is recommended. The aircraft is also equipped with ultra-sound altimeter, which should be used alongside the vertical speed indicator during descent.

Before touch-down decrease the vertical speed, momentarily opening the throttle. When the aircraft touches down, three green lights will illuminate on the dashboard. Immediately decrease power to avoid bunny-hopping.

When using auto-pilot, or performed by AI planes, the landing may not look smooth due to inherent game engine limitations."

Practise, my friend, practise! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

But Spectre gave a good explanation
