  2. Hard to believe what some of you are writing.  In the real world women are one of the toughest and fantastic pilots.

    Plz do not need to sexualise or diminish what female pilot are and need a serious respect from Virtual pilots . I really think this can bring new comers, new souls and a great tribute to so many courageous women we lost during the war.


    Thank you.

  3. If I had the pilot 3D file I could transform it into a female(s) version..


    Years ago I did change the pilots of IL2:1946 the origina, l I couldn't bare to look at them anymore, wrong posture and just not quite right.. :)


    Here some examples of my corrected 3D with a good pilot posture.









    Here the English pilot in ILS:ClOD .. not quite there..



    Here my English one ,  respecting the polygons number which was the same just re-arranged from the same model and same textures.





    I'm please on what DCS of designing the pilots as well of the new release. When I saw the pilot of ROF I was very please as well and love the look and now in IL2:BOS the pilot looks great as well ! So really what we need now is a female(s) pilot(s) choice. This will give some nice unique identity to a combat sim.

  4. And painting will require to load as "Mod" which many wont use unless it is into a pack.


    Yes the shape of the 3D model should defer for sure. I see that there are in the IL2's team devs women that work there, I wonder what would they feel about it. Good question to ask.

    Making a 3D female pilot(s) choices with small different facial shapes and textures is quite fast to do and not really time consuming.

  5. For Stalingrad?  not only Yak-1 :) Yak-7 was very early in production and the Yak-7 tainer was a final training tool for a passage to faster fighters like the Lag-3, Migs and Yak-1s from other trainers.. The Yak-7 trainer did so well that they produced it as a fighter.

  6. La-5UTI was reequipped into photographic reconnaissance aircraft at the Leningrad front




    Yak-7UTI and V.





    FW-190 S-5Schulflugzeug ( later in date )



    Bf-109 Trainers



    In my opinion having a Yak-7-UTI in IL2-Stalingrad make very much sens and my favorite of the lot.

    The Yak-7-UTI earned his place and give birth to the new well known fighters series.

    Having a trainer with option Recon (V) would help a lot the squads and as a teaching tools.

    Flying with someone in the same aircraft is just a blast. Adding an aircraft like the Yak-7 UTI would have plenty of use in IL2.


  7. Type of improvement Yak-7UTI 186 built in 1941 / Yak-7V 510 built in 1942/43 Dual seat Recon or trainer . ( Can be other forces )

    La-5UTI 1943 can be added later on.


    Detailed description: Recon mission dual seat, Trainer dual seat to learn with a more experienced virtual pilot.


    Benefit: Learning and Missions that add a lot in the game play and for Squads.  great tool and learning experience. ( Great marketing as well )

  8. In the IL2 series the Engine Management is quite simple but this doesn't mean that the mixture should be, Since now the engine respond to the atmosphere and which is great ! The mixtures should be well detailed tuned ( sounds as well )  to give the Virtual pilot the tools to be good or bad with his skill of tuning his own aircraft, Heat/Cold/Dry/Humid/High or Low etc..

    Thank you to the IL2 team to do their best for this great sim and theater.






    Interesting read for Virtual pilots that want to know more about Air-Fuel Ratio Mixture


    • Calculating the Ratio

      The air to fuel ratio is the property of fuel and chemical composition of the fuel that defines the value for this ratio. Most of the fuels we use in internal combustion engines are hydrocarbons, and their burning will obviously result in the release of hydrogen and carbon as residuals, along with heat and pressure. Below is an example of the oxidation reaction of methane (natural gas) as a fuel.

      CH4 + 2(O2) → CO2 + 2(H20)

      If we look up the atomic weights of the atoms that make up octane and oxygen, we get the following numbers:

      Carbon © = 12.01

      Oxygen (O) = 16

      Hydrogen (H) = 1.008

      • So 1 molecule of methane has a molecular weight of: 1 * 12.01 + 4 * 1.008 = 16.042
      • One oxygen molecule weighs: 2 * 16 = 32
      • The oxygen-fuel mass ratio is then: 2 * 32 / 1 * 16.042 = 64 / 16.042
      • So we need 3.99 kg of oxygen for every 1 kg of fuel
      • Since 23.2 mass-percent of air is actually oxygen, we need : 3.99 * 100/23.2 = 17.2 kg air for every 1 kg of methane.

      So the stoichiometric air-fuel ratio of methane is 17.2.

    • When the composition of a fuel is known, this method can be used to derive the stoichiometric air-fuel ratio. For the most common fuels, this, however, is not necessary because the ratios are known:

      • Natural gas: 17.2
      • Gasoline: 14.7
      • Propane: 15.5
      • Ethanol: 9
      • Methanol: 6.4
      • Hydrogen: 34
      • Diesel: 14.6

      You may find it interesting that methanol and ethanol both have a very low air-fuel ratio, while the carbon chain length is comparable to methane and ethane. The reason for this is that alcohols like methanol and ethanol already carry oxygen themselves, which reduces the need for oxygen from the air.

    • The Bottom Line

      In order to be able to judge if an air-fuel mixture has the correct ratio of air to fuel, the stoichiometric air fuel ratio has to be known. If the composition of a fuel is known, this ratio can be calculated rather easily.






      etc.. plenty of this online..

  9. You can see quite far in RL so since we will and are using more monitor with higher resolution I would prefer to be able to see the dots far with some glance of reflections that attract your eyes like in real .

    Problem in for example IL2 or DCS is higher resolution and your starting to get blind.. and this shouldn't be .. Higher resolution should be bigger and lower  well lower. This is and was a big problem for a long time and still is.
