Also I want to add this since its about the IL-2:
This is a riport and video footage about a IL-2 wreck that was found in Lake Balaton here in Hungary in 1999. After it was recovered they have taken it to the "Museum of Hungarian Aviation". http://en.wikipedia....garian_Aviation
(The IL-2 wiki page also mentions this http://en.wikipedia....raft_On_Display)
There where other planes taken out of the lake too and suposed to be a few more in there because of the air battles above the lake.
How do I make that the youtube link is just a simply link instead of a embedded video?

The part in the video from 1:19 talks about the recovering of the aircraft, witch was presumably shot down in 1944 december.
But the part before that, is what truly is important. It talks about, that many aircraft have been shot down above the lake Balaton, and are still inside it. It mentions that in the recent years (this video was made in 1999) 3 noteworthy planes have been recovered. A Petlyakov Pe-2 bomber, a Junkers Ju 88 multi-role aircraft, and now the two-seater IL2. In the report they say, that at the end of the year of 1944, the battles have waged above and around the skies of the lake Balaton almost every day.

Low level flying is a kick in the pants. The IL-2 sounds like it would be great fun to fly.

I finally would like to see this game German planes are superior, like they were!
Soviet did some good copying.
German weapons were copied so many times by so many countries......
Just were renamed after war. Nobody wanted to stat openly but everybody knows by now.

Me and I assume more people are not really fond of this Soviet propaganda.
Really hope this WoWarplanes game will be more accurate.
I play an other WarPlanes game , and for thats Russian aswell.... jes, there you have it. Russian plane are OP aswell.
On that forum people are complaining about it, so I guess WoWarplanes would make the perfect differance if they would impland WW2 planes as they were.
Finally Germany would be number ONE choice, and playing war games would be nice again.
I think this willnot be the case.... but fingers crossed

And what would be the ^^$%&^&% point of the game then !??! In an online game,esspecially an arcade such as WoWp ,ballance is what's important.If one nation has clearly supperior planes ,WTF will be the point of playing the other nations .
Not to mention,that the USSR did produce some great planes during the war-their main problem was theineffective pilots which were no match for the better trained and more experienced german pilots.

Fact 1. Russian late war aircraft such as the La-5FN or Yak 3 were equal and in some respects superior to German planes...
Fact 2. IL-2 was called a Flying tank because it flew low and had plenty of armor to protect it from ground fire and fighters. Also Hs.129 came into service late war where as IL-2 in different variants was present throughout the conflict.

As I'm pretty new to this game, hopefully I unlock this "concrete plane" soon. Awesome work of the devs, feeding the community with historical data, nice. That's something those jerks at the big companies would never do for instance. Mainly because their audience isn't interested in it, but well.

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in the harbors, we shall fight on the pacific, we shall fight with growing caliber and great bombs in the air, we shall defend our Ilyushins, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight in the arctic, we shall fight on the fjords, we shall fight in the fields and in bays, we shall fight in the plateaus; we shall never give in to the heavy fighters.
