This sim is the next generation of the legendary IL-2 Sturmovik series of WWII flight-sim games. This series includes a number of modules that span the fronts of World War II from Normandy to the Eastern Front.
Battle of Stalingrad: The first release in the new line of IL-2 Sturmovik titles was developed by 1C Game Studios and is dedicated to the Stalingrad battle and tells about the milestones of this great battle. It includes eight (8) aircraft which participated in the battle.
Battle of Mosow: The second release in the new generation IL-2 Sturmovik titles is dedicated to the defense of Moscow, the capital of the Soviet Union. The campaign tells about the desperate situation when the German army had reached Moscow’s outskirts and the Red Army’s fierce counteroffensive.
Battle of Kuban: The third installment of the next-gen IL-2 Sturmovik series is dedicated to large scale aerial battles between the Red Air Force and the Luftwaffe in the skies over the Kuban front in 1943.
Battle of Bodenplatte: The fourth installment of the next-gen IL-2 Sturmovik product line is dedicated to late war aerial engagements between the U.S. Army Air Force, Royal Air Force and the Luftwaffe in the skies over western Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium during the winter of 1944 and early 1945. Bodenplatte was the German code word for the bold operation to launch a surprise low-level attack on multiple Allied airfields on Jan 1st, 1945.
Battle of Normandy: The fifth installment of the next-gen IL-2 Sturmovik product line is dedicated to late war aerial engagements between the U.S. Army Air Force, Royal Air Force and the Luftwaffe in the skies over the Normandy and Calais regions of France before and after the Allied invasion of Jun 6th, 1944. Both the preparation and execution of the invasion of Normandy (Operation Overlord) had a large air component and involved many airfields in the UK and in France, especially after the Allies landed and built many Advanced Landing Grounds. Some German-built and occupied airfields were captured, repaired and re-used by the Allies as they advanced. Battle of Normandy will explore and recreate the drama as the Allies try to use airpower to secure the invasion beachhead and force a breakout to march towards Paris and Germany itself. Airpower played a crucial role in this battle and the Luftwaffe’s increasingly desperate struggle to stem the Allied air offensive of fighters, attackers and bombers will pose an entertaining challenge for any seasoned virtual pilot.
