Question Will SoW BoB include all planes or just BoB time?

Just wondering if SoW:BoB will include planes throughout WW2, as IL2 did, or will it be limited to the planes that existed in 1940?


Thank you!


PS: Sorry if this is common knowledge that has been asked before.

Only BoB era, to start with.

More will come over the years, just like in IL2.

The SOW series will end of having more aircraft than even the IL-2 series eventually.

The list of planes in SoW:BoB is fairly limited, consisting of only planes that flew on that front. Someone will probably be along with the list shortly.

The planes in SoW takes longer time to make than those in IL-2, as they are far more detailed.Thus the list of planes will start off quite limited and will grow as Oleg & Co makes new versions covering new fronts. In the BoB we will have German, British and Italian 1940 and pre-war fighters, light and medium bombers and two trainers (British and German).

IL2 did not include all planes.

IL2 included a few planes from the eastern front. The IL2 you know now is the result of 10 years of continuous support, free patches, addons and 3rd party input to cover as many planes as possible in IL2.

So, yes, SoW will probably contain somewhat the same amount of planes from IL2, but not from 2010's IL2FB 1946 Patch 4.09.

Don't forget that the first Il-2 started out with only 10 or so aircraft, and was considered state of the art. 8 years later, we have 300 aircraft. Patience.

Don't quote me on this, but as far as I can remember these aircraft are slated to be flyable:

Hurricane MkI (possible variants based on prop - sorry, tiny pilot not included)
Spit MkI
Blenheim Mk IV (aka Bolingbroke)
D.H. TigerMoth - 2 seat trainer.
Bf-109 (possible variants with or without cannons)
Bf-110 (D I believe)
He-111
Ju-87 B-2
Ju-88 A-1
Fiat G-50
Fiat Br.20 (bomber)

Su-26 as a demonstrator of the FM to current pilots, and just for fun

as AI:

Gloster Gladiator
Vickers Wellington
Avro Anson (2 possible types)
Avro-Rota Cierva Autogyro
Supermarine Walrus
Short Sunderland
Boulton Paul Defiant (possible night-fighter variant)
Blenheim MkI (possible night-fighter variant)
Bristol Beaufighter
FW-200
He-59
He- 115
Do-17 (two variants with differing engines)
Ju-52 (with and without floats)
Fiat CR.42
Bf-108 Taifun

Pretty comprehensive if you ask me, especially for a first release. With 3rd party input it will only get better.

PS- if anyone wants to update this list, go for it, I'm only going off memory.

That seems to be a pretty accurate list to be honest, with the 11 mentioned flyables. However, in one of Oleg's interviews (i think it was either the check six interview or his last simhq interview), he stated that they increased the number of flyables to 17.

Now, we all know mr Maddox doesn't promise anything unless he's 100% sure he can deliver, so i guess we'll see those extra flyables. The mystery for me is not if we will get the extra 6 aircraft but what aircraft exactly they will be, because even though an increased list has been mentioned i haven't been able to find any information as to exact aircraft types.

Does anyone have any information on that? Would be interesting to see

That number may include all the possible variants. I think there are supposed to be a few Bf-109 types: two guns, four guns, and two guns with two cannon, as well as a couple Hurricane types: one with two blade fixed-pitch prop, one with 3 blade variable-pitch.

Correct, this statement was including all modeled variants.

Another example, why we should be careful with quoting things out of the context.
