For the time being I've removed the mod, and it fixed my problem...
I'll have to reinstall it and recreate the error next weekend so I can post a log

Got halfway through the replies, and saw nothing about any weapons pack requirements. Having just updated to 4.09, I see weapon names here appearing nowhere else in weapons_ru.properties. I *suspect* the stock game doesn't have those.

Before installing, I need to know if extra weapons are needed, and if so, where to get 'em.

Thanks, from a late bloomer among rebels!

Try to install it anyway: usually these packs includes required special weapons. Personally, I can't recall ever need to search and download extras for Hurricane pack. In any case, this does not harm; after installation, check "Arming" screen and scroll down to the bottom the loadout: if you read "Empty" all is OK.

Here is a series of weapons that I put at the disposal of the Rebels:

Tab "MODS_IL-2" and tab "Arms"

I update from time to time. Otherwise I supply the new weapons in the Mods.

Epervier,
Your collection there at Mediafire is a gold mine! I grabbed a fair number of things. Including some necessary utils due to setting up my new computer. Thank you!

It turns out that I didn't need any extra weapons.

Tried out the birds, to verify that they work. I had a couple of CTDs, before figuring it must result from my modded classfiles which incorporate the gear damage mod (and probably other stuff), as well as improved compass behaviour. So I simply replaced the classfiles included here with my own. Seems stable now.

-----------

I note that the F and K use the M cockpit. I should think they should instead use the E cockpit. I've already altered the F class file accordingly, and am planning to do the same for the K.

That's because the principal difference between these 'pits in our game is the gun sight. The E was fitted with an early N-2 sight, which had the sight head as a cast piece having triangular metal sides supporting the reflector plate. Some of you may already be using my sight mod for the E, and know what I'm talking about. (My F4F-3 has a similar sight head, albeit of taller form suitable for the generous look-down angle over the cowling on such Navy fighters.)

I've seen pics of the K having badically the same sight head, albeit with the sight body lying horizontal and having an intermediate mirror housing. But fundamentally the same basic sight.

As far as I can tell, it was only later '40s which were fitted with the 'cleaner' sight head having just the reflector plate glass protruding up from the sight head. As for my sight mod for the M, which I hope you all are using. ;)

Seen? I guessed was the same of Hurricane and almost all other similar mod. P-40 pack, IMO, is not a good start point to work on modding P-40. Better to start from stock ones. The various non-stock variants in P-40 pack are arguably, and some defective (see this thread about P-40N).

The creators of this mod pack will surely appreciate your recognition of their efforts.
"That thread" about the P-40N... well, I'll think about making it sticky as an example how not to report something.

Thanks for your time, entertainment, help, the fish and everything else.
