Thank you very much for the update.
This is starting to feel so much like the old days and I am glad to have this feeling back again.

Thanks for the update!

Word, the weathering and details of the planes are far above IL-2.

I like the engine details inside of the cowl, and these aren't the in game ones.

And inclusion of the he 115, the lighting looks good.


It's cool there's going to be details like sunlight glints from a distance (before you get close).


I suspect they will have moving engine parts, as IL-2 has the internal cooling fan of the FW 190, I remember nodding my head and giving props (proper recognition) to that, when I learned the value of F2 during engine spool up.

Note: some features in the tools are approximations. There are no waves, wakes, simplified terrain, etc. This update is just to showcase our beautiful aircraft.

First off, here's the Fiat G.50 Freccia, which, as most of you should know by now, took part in the later part of the battle. It will be flyable:

http://files.games.1c.ru/il2pict/Fiat_G-50_09.jpg

And here's the Heinkel He 115B-2 floatplane. This plane is very rarely modeled in simulations, and never as accurately as ours. We used original manufacturing blueprints to build this model, so it's incredibly precise. This plane will be AI-only in the initial release.

Hope you guys enjoy you weekend! I will certainly enjoy mine.
I know the italian fans will flame me but... Why make the G-50 flyable if the Defiant is not? Why make the BR-20 flyable when the Do-17 is not?

In my world the Do-17 in particular was an important plane during the Battle, and the Defiant is sure a plane that is often discussed even though it was a failure... The italians where really of minor significance (but interesting for sure!).

The best would be to have them all but if we can't have them all... As the Italian cockpits are already done I'm crying for nothing I guess - but the Do-17 is really one of my personal "bad guy" favorites...

Mazex - there were much more hard-used aircrafts during BoB, wich will NOT be in relise...

For example Bf110C-2 and Bf110D-0/3.

But the C4 will be there (?) so there will be one flyable 110 at least. For me the "must haves" for a BoB game is really spits and hurricanes vs the three main german bombers (111,88,17) and the 109 and 110 trying to protect them. The rest is nice to haves...

Then I am really pleased that most of these are flyable, so I'm really just complaining cause I'm spoiled by the overwhelming number of flyables in IL2... With the cockpit detail of SoW we really only deserve the spit for the lousy $39 we will pay for it.

Side note - while googling a bit about the 110 as you mentioned the versions you would like instead of the C4 if found this interesting fact:

"The Luftwaffe had embarked on the battle with 237 serviceable Bf 110s. 223 were lost in the course of it".

Talk about loss ratio!

Mazex, we're all spoiled by IL-2

These planes look great! I can already see I'll have a good time flying with the G.50. And that Heinkel - amazing!! I'll be sure to take my time testing it's damage model under .303 fire. C'mon, it isn't my evil geniuous talking here, it's a scientific report on the resistance of the materials used in an aircraft! Science, not just a cheap excuse to blow things up (it's a bit comparable to the way the Mythbusters do it).

I have a silly question related to languages: will users be able to choose between the languages?
