Hey Ram - I figured out why I couldn't jump to my rear gunner position in the Pe-2 that one sortie tonight - someone jumped in the gunner position!  I only found out because he damaged my plane when he was shooting at the 109 that was attacking me.  Apparently he was chewing up my tail a bit... glad I was able to crash land at least, he could have really messed me up.  Not sure I like the idea of some random person jumping in my rear gunner position, since I can't see out of it for situational awareness.

Here's the sortie:  http://il2stat.aviaskins.com:8008/en/sortie/log/2208542/?tour=25

Rel,

You can lock your gunner positions to keep people out.

Great - I was briefly looking for a way to do that after flying last night, is but hadn't found it yet.  Please do tell!

Thanks,

Scorp showed me - after you spawn in the Pe2 (or any plane with a gunner), you hit Esc, then click on the gunner control (forget the exact menu option) and then lock the gunner positions.  Have to do it for each spawn apparently.
