IL-2 1943 Cockpit, lights below the Gunsight?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Does anyone know what these lights are I cannot find any information about them? I am currently working with the assumption that they are a simple communications systems between the Gunner and Pilot.

 

 

Regards

Yes, they are communication lights. From Han:

 

Pilot to gunner light signals:

 

Green light, single flash - fire at will

White light, single flash - return fire only

Red light, single flash - hold fire

 

Green light, multiple flashes - engage the intermediate flaps stop

White light, multiple flashes - engage the fuel tanks pressurization system (after taking off)

Red light, multiple flashes - disengage the fuel tanks pressurization system (after landing)

 

Gunner to pilot light signals:

 

Green light, single flash - the target is far away

White light, single flash - no ammo left

Red light, single flash - we're being engaged

 

Green light, multiple flashes - the intermediate flaps stop engaged

White light, multiple flashes - the fuel tanks pressurization system engaged

Red light, multiple flashes - the fuel tanks pressurization system disengaged.
