And, I am very, very happy. Got my x3 on the first mission, on the Hidden Airbase map, no less.

That is a good start, Ralph_Vargr. I hope that you will find the IL-2 to be a worthy addition to your hangar. I fly GA a lot and the IL-2 sold me on continuing down the Russian GA line at a point when I considered putting it on hold and choosing something else to pursue. If you can learn its nuances and how to effectively use its outboard munitions, it will provide good credit-making potential.

 

Good luck and have fun with your new IL-2!

IL-2 are great as you learn your weapons your scores will increase and your skill . When your skills get better you will move up the leader board and soon will be in the top three every game .There are a lot of players who only play G/A because they enjoy them so much and i am one.Did not fly for five weeks a little rusty , second game took out sixteen ground targets , enemy H/Q, one plane, and over 35k in enemy damage points , what a rush. LOL I really enjoy this game and really enjoy the IL-2.Good luck have fun and get high o7 :izmena:

Got to love em even though they are fighter magnets . I have 4 in my hanger and use them to build credits to upgrade the rest of my hanger.

Good decision Ralph, you can make some decent currency with the lL-2.  Although be prepared to have many fighters come at you, but with proper handling you can have some fun. Good luck!

Stay low, below 200 meters, don't rush to HQ, wait until you know where their fighters are and pick a lane of least resistance.  I have all but two of the ILs and they can be a blast.  And as everyone mentioned money makers.

Better yet, wait until you get an IL-10. Or even better, an adult whale.

Sky Whales are a must for each pilot, in my most humble experience.

Everyone should learn to fly them.

Aaaand: I got the biggest kick of a day when I saw in chat: "Clean up, spill in IL-2." Bombing another Il is a thrill all in itself. Enjoy the plane!

Gratz on the il-2!! Great GA  and in a pinch you can down oncoming planes with ease. Word to the wise is, don't go all "lone ranger" and burn right for the enemy base or you will end your game quickly. Chuck is right GA's are normally targeted first so wait to see what the GROUP is doing and pick your entry point from there. Your best defense  if you pick up someone on your 6 is your bombs so i usually save them till towards the end. A good tactic is the old air-brakes/full flaps drop the bomb as they run up on ya. You should find it a fun plane to fly..:)....good luck o7

Thanks, y'all. I tend to fly a spiral, not going directly for the HQ, but working what seems optimum for the particular battle I'm in.

 

I now have the 20 MM guns. Rockets are next.

I'd prefer that you get the VYas.

I now have the big guns, and rockets. The airplane is maxed.

 

I'm having a great deal of fun flying this monster.
