I got Il-2 Sturmovik (the 1946 version) for Christmas and have had a go at it over the last couple of days.
I've completed one mission so far, as I've got a bit of a problem taking off. In what I discovered was actually the game simulating torque and not a problem with my joystick; I have a strong tendency to go left or right when taking off. Off the runway and in one case, taking off and hitting the control tower with my right wing.
I'll try and get some screenshots; plus some older ones from my earlier gaming time.
