Nothing to talk about. This plane is offered to the highest donaters, which makes it a shame. Regular players do not even see it in the prem.shop.

I have it in my hanger but haven't flown it in a while.  Not a bad plane as long as you fly it within its limits.  Good firepower but unforgiving if you try flying it too high, strictly low level GA killer for all practical purposes and keep the bombs for fighters chasing you.
Fly crooked and shoot straight.

That's right!, tottally agree.

I got it when it appeared in a kind of short event.  At the begining it was a brick, them they buffed it and now it s a decent low level (too low) fighter.

The IL-1 is a flying tank that is a lot of fun.  It has the up-tier 23mm guns, good armor, good accuracy, so so handling, but can be deadly.

I haven't flown it since 1.x, I don't think.  It was okay then...

I like it. RNG has been good to me, so far only lost 1 battle out of 8. 

It has maneuverability, hit points, bombs and cannons. Negative is that it can’t fly high. Being a premium let’s you put in a good pilot.

Just flew it.

 

WOW, it is a lot better than I remember.  That SpitV DB605 got a nasty 800m surprise.  And those 23s hit HARD.

IL-1 didn't exist in 1.X I thought? Pretty sure it was released around the time of 4th anniversary in 2017 during 2.0.

 

Still, I haven't flown it myself and I never see them flown so I can't really comment on flight performance.

I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

Couldn't let it go ...

 

Anybody here bought it ?

Looks like I got a boost mixture injection engine, not the uprated engine ?? Not that I mind ...

 

EDIT: flew it in the last hour of phase I.

Multiroles get put on defense a lot, so I stayed low and kept the strongholds clear of GA. Best score was 14 GA killed, but also some fighters and heavies.

Just stay under 800 meters.

Hmmmm, you might be right.  I remember winning it somehow.  My memory is fuzzy.
