Train flak gunners shooting the locomotive.
Was trying to make a U2 mission where partisan would use mg and mortar to stop the train,then U2 would bomb it with fab 50. Train gunners aquired the mg team and shot the locomotive coal car apart trying to shoot ahead of the train, this did stop the train by fratricide. Tried using tank obstacles and a gaz jeep stopped on the tracks, train ran through them, no damage etc. used a 45mm at gun and it destroyed the train from the flank and the flak guns engaged it as it fired as it had hold fire until 400m. The trains that have flak at mid point if needing to shoot fwd will shoot up the coal car.

You may search for the files in:


There you may check for "technics.ini".

It is a text file.

Open it and search for "wagon"

You will find an entry with the following:

It tells you it will be firing a Flak 38, so you search for the Flak38 properties;

A good solution for that problem, it is to increase the Min pitch.

Obviously this is not available on the non moded il2. Originally it was, but this group of files allowed to do heavy cheating.

If you try to play solo, it won't hurt.
The other files, like the chief files, allows you to build whatever type of columns you may want, even with ships, or build far longer trains.

I used to like the oil trains that shot themselves up, but they don't do that any more.
