    Where is the game manual?

    I have installed IL-2 CloD TF 4.53 and I have read somewhere in the forums that there should be a game manual which may contain some useful charts, etc.
    I cannot find the game manual anywhere on my system. I looked both in the "C:\Users\<username>\Documents\1C SoftClub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover" folder and in the Steam folder, to no avail. I did find the airfield PDFs (thanks, they are awesome), but nothing else.

    The manual may have been removed by TF because it is now obsolete with all the changes done over the years. If that is the case, could you re-publish charts and other reference material that might have been there?

    Thanks,
    ~Uranor

    folder "printable airfields" in the main directory is probably what is being referred to.

    I found the TFS Wiki very useful. It includes aircraft manuals.

    I agree that Chuck's guides are a lot better than the original manual. There are a couple of TAS charts at the end of the manual that I wanted to print. Chuk's Guide has it too, but it is formatted in a non-printer-friendly format. Also, I can derive my own TAS chart in Excel, but you suggested that some of the calculations for TAS have been done with Physics from "Oleg's World" and thus I thought that the charts in the manual may reflect "Oleg's World" Physics. An assumption, I know.

    I too use the Team Fusion Wiki and found it very useful. Thanks to all who replied.

    Thanks for sharing this. Given that this thread is quite old so far, I noticed this link is malfunctioning or something: there's no preview for the file and it opens as a blank page and nothing else here. If upload it to the editing program (I used this one for that purpose https://boston-real-estate-board-form.pdffiller.com/) it will be shown as it supposed to, and everything becomes fine as well if to save it as a new document from there. Had never seen such a thing before
