Is there known cheats to the game?

I have encountered an enemy who seems to shoot me down in impossible situations (for example, just one split of a second of being aimed at, instant kill)

And there doesn't seem to have a reasonable explanation beside that.

And no he wasn't flying planes with extraordinarily huge guns. (such as the Yaks with 37 mm or the like)

Not as far as I am aware. As far as I know it is impossible to alter the stats of aircraft or make any changes to the flight model because all calculations are done server side, rather than in the client. To implement the kind of cheat you described they'd have to hack the server. It is the same in world of tanks, (although there, there are banned aimbots that mine data that is available to aid the player).

The only explanation beside cheat/hack at the moment is lag... I asked the other allied player and he said he is experiencing serious lag.

Lag could indeed be the issue here. Normally you'd see yourself take damage as it occurs, but if you start lagging you might get the damage all in one go because the other guy didn't lag and he's been shooting at you the whole time

This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

I don't know for sure but I am suspicious.  1.9 did have a plethora of cheats on line, many for free.  Would they exist (page after page on Google) if they weren't there for a reason?

From my understand the reason for WG pushing forward with this Version 2 is that in Version 1.- people that had extreme IT intelligence were able to alter and throw add-on's.

 

One most memorable incident for me was seeing an I-16(e) with 8 rockets and a TSh 2 with 4 rockets. These humans may have lasted a few days before they were banned. 

 

As for Version 2.0.- - near impossible for any (if any) cheat mods.

Nope.  Some were, especially the paid ones.

Has anyone seen where the tag is visible, but the aircraft is invisible.... makes them very hard to shoot down

Did you happen to be in the Me 265 & shot down by a multirole?

Crits could explain it, if they have a really high crit% chance and they get 2 or 3 crits in quick succession.  

 

I was flying a Bf 110 C-6 last night, enemy fighter (player, not bot) decided to head-on me....1 hit of the 30mm anti-tank cannon killed him instantly.

i've heard talk of an I-something that can take out most planes with a single shot.  Have had the single-shot death dealt to me several times but I never assumed someone was cheating as it always seems to happen the same way :

 

I'm chasing a heavier plane than myself, sawing away at him with my Light Fighter machine gun not paying attention to my 6 then BAM - I'm dead.

it's a bug     it's always a bot that goes invisible     it's been reported

 

it's hard to do, but kill the bot and it'll come back completely normal

What Tier does it usually happen at? Because if it is at Tier IV, V, VI, or VII it easily could be one of the Japanese tech tree Heavy Fighters.


An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

As a lover of big guns, I don't think there's anything in the game that can whack a normal opponent(ie +1 tier, same tier, or -1 tier) with a single hit.  Probably lag making you "experience" multiple hits at once, or just not noticing the previous hits. Hit registration often seems delayed(even by multiple seconds!) to me.  Some planes might be able to do it if they have multiple derp guns(and they all hit), like the I-211.

On a related note, I-211 seems to be the last usable plane in that line.  The twin 57s of the I-215 don't hit any harder than the rest of the line, tier per tier.  They even hit weaker, tier for tier, compared to the I-211.  And the I-215 can neither go fast nor turn hard, so it becomes easy meat 90% of the time while you can sledgehammer enemies the other 10% of the time.
