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:

[Wagon19] // Antiaircraft Platform with 4xFlak38 (Germany)
Description Wagon
Icon Train
// Models
MeshSummer 3do/Trains/Platform5/Summer/hier.him
MeshSummerDamage 3do/Trains/Platform5_Dmg/Summer/hier.him

MeshWinterDamage 3do/Trains/Platform5_Dmg/Winter/hier.him
// Panzer
PanzerType Car
PanzerSubtype 4
PanzerBodyFront 0.015
Explode WagonWood

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

Description German antiaircraft gun Flak 38, 4x20mm (Vierling)
Icon antiaircraft

MeshSummer 3do/Artillery/Germany/Flak38_4x20mm/Live.him

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.
