Labeled IL-2 Cockpit


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


This morning I made a quick cockpit guide like my LaGG-3 and Bf 109 F-4 ones. Anything in Red is stuff I'm not sure what to label, so if anyone knows post here and I'll make the requisite changes.


I'll be making an IL-2 famililarisation next weekend, so keep an eye out for when that's released on my YouTube channel.

Great job, as always :salute:


EDIT: 666 posts?! Damn, I'd better make another post :(

In the first image, D controls the brightness of the instrument panel lighting, and E controls the brightness of the cockpit lighting. "Vibrator" would probably better translate as being "light switch," seeing as the two knobs next to it control lighting.

A, B, C, and D in the last image are the cocking levers for the machine guns and cannon.

Excuse me while I act immaturely.

Heh. Vibrator.

Ok, I'm back.




Please, if you have nothing mature to add to the thread, just stay out of it.

Like I said, that's the only time I'm going to be immature in this thread... unless of course something vaguely sexual comes up, in which case I revert to acting like all the normal 14 year olds.

Lighten up, Luke. ItsIt's just a joke.


About flaps, I could only deploy them fully or not at all. Did anyone else have this? I may have muffed my input settings.

Cheers guys, made the fixes.

Yeah it looks like it's either all or none. According to the IL-2 pilot's manual I believe they deployed the flaps once established on final approach. I've been doing that and my landings have been working out pretty well.

Am I the only one the pics stopped working for?

They should be fine. I haven't done anything to them and I still see them in the first post.

The switch to the right of the "Spotlight Switch" you have marked is also an "electrical" on off....don't know which one yet but the same film above show shutting those two (the switch mentioned here and the battery switch I reference in post #21) off (down) during engine shutdown at the end of the video.  Sorry for multiple posts..wouldn't let me edit the one above to include this info in it.

28 ВЫКЛЮЧаТЕЛЬ рации = Switch Radio

30 ВЫКЛЮЧаТЕЛЬ обогрева сбрасыВАТеЛЯ= Switch Heating Kicker
29 ВЫКЛЮЧаТЕЛЬ шасси



термо = Thermo
аккум = Batteries
пито = Pilot
рация = Radio

шасси = Undercarriage


ПЕРЕДНИ БАК = Front Tank
БЕНЗИН = Gasoline
ЗАДН БАК = Rear Tank

ЗАКРЫТ = Close


ЩИТКИ = Flaps

So I'm working a complete translation of the cockpit graphic...here's my work in progress


This site won't let me upload the excel sheet...pm me if you want a copy in current format..tried text tab delimited and won't do that either as an attachment.


It will probably post as a hodge podge..but the numbers are all accurate to the cockpit graphic...so say 60 in Cyrillic is good with 60 in English...


Don't trust the Cyrillic spelling if the translation doesn't look like it is fully in english... decided to do a picture to text conversion to speed it up ..then use google translator. 


Not as fast as I would like..but faster than I can type in Russian since I am historically QWERTY..... but not all the Cyrillic was detected accurately...so hand-jam I must since I'm not a native

Russian Speaker/Reader....

Thanks for the assistance Aldo! I've made your changes and additions. I know what it's like having to do the russian alphabet manually for translations. That's how I figured out most of these, copying individual letters is a pain, so don't kill yourself over this as I think the essential pieces are covered. Unless they make clickable pits in the future we won't really be interacting with any of these switches.

Hi Requiem,


I rely on your fantastic labeled cockpits - huge thanks for them!


What font are you using? I sometimes like to add additional notes to myself, and the designer in me would like my additional notes to match your font. :)

No worries guys, the labeling is the relatively easy part (even when trying to decipher Russian). The famil videos are what take up many hours to make.

Charlo the font is called "Eraserdust."
