I decided to go back and do an old school Il2 Campaign (and having a great time) and have a question. What is this device on the Il2. I thought maybe it was a camera but I'm not too sure.

I was also wondering if any of you had any links to some interesting Il2 sites. Whenever I Google search for IL2, I get about 200 sites about Oleg's Flight Simulator or sites about Scale Model Kits. I think it would really help with immersion if I knew detailed background of of the battles, the people, the places, and the machines.

I thought it was a pitot/gauge device.

It's positioning and shape leads me to believe it's part of the carburetor intake. Not sure though.

The carburetor air intake dust filter. It has a set of clamshell doors in the front as well as the wrap around filter screen.
