I've looked at this plane several times when it has come up, but the IL thing keeps putting me off because it doesn't scream multirole fighter to me (too much time in slow IL GA's, I know this was built as a fighter but the look puts me off :teethhappy:).

 

How does it play?, been shot down by these before now, but it's not a common plane so don't have a lot of experience to base a judgement on, your feedback would be interesting.

Flew it in the event, mostly on defense for some reason.

It was great for defending bases against GA and their escorts ... had some really good scores. Winged legends, lots of credits. Could not get a real idea of how it works on attack, because of the strengthened AA in event. 23mm's and light bombs did not have a lot of effect.

Will have to see how it works during normal gameplay. You have to stay really low where it performs best.

Thanks, that kind of matches what I've read on the US forums (though those are from 2017 ish) nice to have a more recent update.

 

Sounds like a multi role fighter on the edges of being a GA, read this plane was the forerunner of the IL10 in real life, one thing I like about the IL10 is the speed compared to the IL8, I guess this is where it got that from.

 

Unsure if I will get it yet will take a look later in the month if it's still around.

Shrike Gaming made a review and gameplay a year ago on IL-1, it's pretty awsome. You should check it out on youtube.

Just watched the review/gameplay. I have to say, he is very negative ...

 

I still like it.

It's good at killing other GA, shooting up AA, bombs are OK and capable of defending itself against most fighters on the deck ...

Mostly because people when they see an IL airframe involuntarelly they are thinking of the GA capabilities, but it is a MRF so it should compared with other MRFs...in my opinion...has good rate of roll and a much better maneuverability..i think it almost the same as a Fw190...from what i saw need to recheck its status in the video....anyway it's an unusual plane and a rare one so it might be pretty fun playing with it.

Much more positive view from Gaming Bear (Who can also be a bit variable) I find a lot of these contributors tend to be turn fighter jockeys at heart, I've sworn at the screen for some HF reviews.

 

Does look interesting, bit niche but as he says light GA/anti GA combined with multi role.

Yep, it's a bit restricted by alt too. 

But it's great fun low on the deck. Most pilots think, oh an IL and assume you are slow and sluggish until you suddenly turn on them ;-)

Well, if you couldn't let the IL-1 bundle pass (neither could I) then I'm sure you won't be able to resist the legendary bundle that's now available for at least some of us.

Still contemplating the new bundle ...

 

I'd love to have the Pegasus !! But the Me-210 and the XP-77 ... not sure.

I bought it, I like it, it's tough, maneuverable and he hits hard. And it's also nice because you see few of them ;)

I still don't see a lot of them ... but I really like it so far. Busy specializing ...
