Yeah that is no bug with the torpedos. That is the way they were designed... And if you are not low enough gravity makes them sink too deep and they often pass harmlessly below the ship's keel.

Here is a screen ingame with the cockpit features, it has 2 windows in the belly, I hope the camera can rotate to look through them.

You forgot the IL-2T. I'm still hoping for some Baltic coast and Sevastopol maps...

Actually increasing the amount of fuel WILL increase the amount of drag on the aircraft. Here is how. fuel adds weight, appx. 6 lbs per gallon. Take 2 identical aircraft, except one is 500 lbs lighter. In order to produce lift, the airplane has to fly at a certain angle of attack. Since lift must equal weight in unaccelerated flight, the heavier airplane must fly at a higher angle of attack. When an airplane operates at a higher angle of attack, the amount of Induced drag goes up. Induced drag can by thought of as a byproduct of lift. The more lift required means you need a higher angle of attack, means higher induced drag. So even if the fuel tanks are internal, total drag goes up. If you mounted them externally, the drag caused by placing an object in the airstream is parasite drag. So if you mount them externally both induced and parasite drag both go up. If drag goes up, then to keep the plane in unaccelerated flight the amount of thrust required must also go up to stay equal to drag. This usually results in a higher fuel burn. So to get have a decent range on the aircraft, designers add more fuel, and the cycle repeats itself.

You just fly under it... which is hard now because of the battleships and those damn anti air things.
