  3. Everyone, Your attention please for a second. As you may have seen, we have launched Pre-Orders for Desert Wings - Tobruk today. This project has been a long journey for our friends at Team Fusion Simulations and they have worked very passionately and professionally to bring this project to release. All of us here love combat flight simulations and adding Torbuk to the catalog is another great achievement for the genre and a very well deserved achievement by Team Fusion. Let's show them we support their efforts. I've done everything I can as Executive Producer of IL-2 Sturmovik to give them this shot and I told them when we started this endeavor that the Great Battles community would support there efforts and get behind them. Please show them I was not wrong. I urge everyone who loves simming and owns Great Battles to support Tobruk and Team Fusion and give them the opportunity to continue to make more new products in the future. They have made some very cool airplanes and produced the first true North African / Mediterranean combat flight-sim and I think that deserves some attention and your love. They have taken a derelict product and revived it like very few have ever done in game/sim development history. Kudos to Team Fusion for that miracle and to 1C for giving them that chance. Great job Team Fusion and thank you to all Great Battles community members who have already purchased and will purchase Tobruk in the near future! 1CGS and Team Fusion appreciates it immensely. Let's keep combat flight sims flying high! Jason

  6. Dear Friends, Today we'd like to present you our next Scripted Campaign - Hell Hawks Over the Bulge. This campaign was lovingly created by our talented friend Jim "Gambit21" McDavid who previously authored the Havoc Over the Kuban campaign. This Campaign has been in development for many months and we are proud to finally bring it to you! It's release is now imminent with our next update, so we are now taking Pre-Orders in the IL-2 Official Webstore. We are proud to announce the Pre-Order of the new historically based Scripted Campaign - Hell Hawks Over the Bulge for IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Bodenplatte. Hell Hawks Over the Bulge is a new, historical scripted campaign featuring the P-47D-28 or "Jug" as it was affectionately known to its pilots. The Campaign is based on the exploits of the 9th Air Force, 365th Fighter Group, later to be known as the "Hell Hawks" Along with the rest of the 9th Tactical Air Command or "IX TAC" for short, the pilots of the 365th flew in direct support of General Hodges' First Army, protecting ground forces from aerial attack, and destroying enemy assets and obstacles on the ground. The 365th’s Jugs also flew in support of General Patton's 3rd Army on two occasions, including during the famous Battle of the Bulge. This campaign puts the virtual pilot in the seat of one of the most devastating ground attack platforms to ever see service, during some of the most dangerous conditions experienced by pilots on the European continent during WWII. While flying this campaign, the player will experience realistic 9th Air Force ground attack operations as they occurred in Belgium in late 1944 and into 1945. 9th Air Force ground and air controllers are simulated and are integral to the campaign as they were to operations in real life. This includes authentic radio traffic between ground controllers and attacking aircraft, and authentic call signs from the units involved during this time are featured. More than 150 custom radio calls are used in the Campaign that adds a new level of immersion and gives it a unique feeling. The player will take part in operations from the "Battle of Aachen" in the Fall of 1944, into the Hurtgen Forest and into the winter of 1945 and the "Battle of the Bulge". Events depicted also include the New Year’s Day operation known as Bodenplatte when Allied bases all over the front were attacked by scores of German fighters. While every effort is made to remain faithful to realistic operations and history, some changes were made for player experience purposes. First, the home base of the Hell Hawks was changed from Chievres to Florennes to shorten the otherwise lengthy flight times to the front. Also, events experienced by the 365th FS during the New Year’s Day operation were altered to provide a more action-packed day, similar to what some other units experienced on that morning in 1945. Overall, the purpose of the campaign is to showcase and take advantage of the full capabilities of the Great Battles platform and to maximize the single player experience within this state-of-the-art WWII combat simulation! A custom skin pack featuring authentic 365th liveries is available to download for this campaign and available HERE and HERE. Hell Hawks Over the Bulge is planned for release in our future 4.009 update! Battle of Bodenplatte is required to play Hell Hawks Over the Bulge.
