Yesterday when I started the battle I've the nice surprise to spot the IL-1 new multirole premium fighter on GhostPrime hands:

Of course the battle didn't go well to me but fight is fight so I spotted some plane with low health and:

 

I hope the IL-1 will be available for us soon.

IL-1...multirole fighter? :amazed:

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Yes. The first in the line of Ilushyn was a fighter. Now a multirole in the game.

This should prove to be an interesting, future development for a certain so-and-so.

Oh my, I just can't stop laughing at that one, Quesnel.....+1 Brother! :great:

 

I had never heard of the IL-1, so I did some quick checking:

Sergey Ilyushin developed the IL-1 in 1943 as am armored fighter, based on the famous IL-2 attack craft.

It used the same armored shell for the engine and cockpit as did the IL-2, but was lighter, more compact, had an internal radiator, and had a much more powerful engine, giving it a mediocre top speed of  580 kph (360 mph).

It only carried two 23mm cannon for armament, but could carry either 2x 100kg, or 4x 50kg bombs. However (and this is a new one on me), the rear fuselage also carried a dispenser that could drop up to 10x "aerial grenades" into the path of pursuing fighters (!!).

(Zigfreid and Zapperguy should drool at that.....)

 

Because of its relatively slow speed for a fighter, Ilyushin also developed a two-seat version of the plane with a tailgunner, but realizing that Russia already had much faster and much more capable fighters, Ilyushin abandoned the IL-1 fighter project,  and the two-seat IL-1 was redeveloped into the IL-10, which went into service in 1944.

Laughing is a great way to start off the morning, even if you start sounding like the Joker.

I am with Warchylde on this. I could see the veins popping out on his forehead in my mind.:great: That speed would have been respectable in 1939 but by 1943 it would have been completely outclassed. Still an interesting plane.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

OP obvious Photoshop, fake news...

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.
