On Monday, 18 April, I hope to update this thread with expanded aircraft checklists. The Aircraft Operating Data posted/linked at the beginning of this thread was actually only page one of four that I derived from the actual Pilot's Note's and Aircraft Handbuchs. I took the narrative format of the originals and converted them into a checklist format while trying to maintain the feel and language of the original. Again, since I created these prior to the release of the game, I didn't know which aircraft versions to create, but I have expanded checklists for the Spitfire MkI Early (Merlin II 87 Octane with fixed pitch prop), Spitfire MkI Late (Merlin III 100 Octane with CSP), Spitfire MkII (Merlin XII with CSP), Hurricane MkI Early (Merlin II 87 Octane with fixed pitch prop), Hurricane MkI Late (Merlin III 100 Octane with CSP), and the Bf109E.

I need to check the version numbers of the files and one last scrub for typos, and I'll get them to Einstein to post as an edit to the original post.

Good stuff. I'll either revise the PDF and those quick-look screen captures or edit them out to prevent confusion too.

Would love to hear your thoughts when you get to sim on what you think of the FM - some of the parameters seem, um, a little liberal in accuracy.

Simply outstanding! It is community-created resources like this that made the IL-2 experience great. Thanks for the huge effort in creating it, and then making it available.

Thanks Einstein. Take a look at the "full" checklists and let me know what you think. If we have an overwhelming response, I may be able to get my translator working on the Me110 and Ju87 manuals. biggrin

Here's to hoping that this is an overwhelming response.
Invaluable stuff.

Thumbs up again.
This is becoming the flip cards I hoped it would be.

Muchas gracias

Good stuff (again). So do I have to update the screen images at the top of the thread, or (from a quick look) I think this is an addition only right?

Ok, I've uploaded a new PDF of all the checklists to here (plus updated the earlier post with a link)

If you haven't checked out the first post in this thread, and the two excel files then here's a flavor of the good stuff that Flea authored:

All right guys, I'm planning on publishing a new set of checklists/datasheets to coincide with the N.A. release of COD. I have added a 4 page checklist for the Blenheim MkIV and a one pager for the Ju88A. I have updated the ammunition loadout pages to reflect in game nomenclature and gun numbers. But I need some help.

I am not progressing as quickly as I would like, so I am turning to you guys. I want to make sure the checklists are as applicable to the game as possible. My plan was to methodically test each aircraft to the checklist and identify which procedures do not apply (for example: I already know that the British primer pumps are non functioning), and to ensure that the real life procedures these checklists were created from work in the game. I am also trying to identify which ammunition creates a smoke trail. My research says only phosphorus based incendiary rounds should smoke upon exiting the muzzle, but with the loadout issues, I have been unable to verify this.

So if any of you would want to help me test these procedures, and to create video "Welcome to the Spitfire/How to Fly Your 109" training films based on these procedures, please PM me. I'll keep plugging away at this, but I'm still only getting about 1.5 hours of sim time per week to work on this (plus every bit of down/lunch time at work I can squeeze in).

Oh, are there any German speakers who would like to do some translating for me? I need help with Me110, Ju87, He111 and Me108 manuals. Transcribing from a pdf (and that awful font they used for some docs) into Google translate is slow. And a bit confusing at times.

I request the mods to unsticky this thread. I will be posting a cleaned up and expanded checklist in the next couple of days. Thanks to everyone for downloading and reviewing the various drafts. I think the version soon to be posted will be more user friendly and useful for those new to COD.
