  1. I've found list of losses for the P-51D-15 http://cgibin.rcn.com/jeremy.k/cgi-bin/gzUsafSearch.pl?target=&content=P-51D-15 Later I will publish the final result here when they began to enter service into the groups of interest to us. I'm working on now P-47D-22 and D-28.
  2. Hi! The campaign is ready, we're waiting for only the translation of briefings into English. We believe that we'll receive briefings in 2.5 weeks, and I hope that the campaign will be released with version 4.007.
  3. I've moved discussion about Allied and Axis campaign balance at this thread
  4. Don't worry about the Western Front, I'm already doing something interesting for BoBP. Also, @Gambit21 is due to finish the official P-47 campaign soon. Thanks. Your main targets will be Pitomnik and Voroponovo airfields. Next to Gumrak was the headquarters of the 6th Army and the prisoner of war camp, this airfield began to be used near the end of the battle. The remaining airfields were targets for aircraft of the 16th Air Army. Yes, I'd like to create next part of this history for the BOK, BoN or BOBP. Or do it for each game in turn))
  5. Thanks for the pre-order guys) I plan that my next commercial campaign will be dedicated to the Luftwaffe in the spring of 1943 in the Kuban Users can't access the files of the official campaigns and somehow change them. But after completing the campaign, you can replay any missions in any order. Unfortunately, I've no plans. I stopped working on skins since I finished working on the IL-2 1946 10 years ago and since then it has been a big problem for me.
  6. Ice Ring Scripted Campaign Now Available for Pre-Order!
  7. Dear Friends, Today we'd like to present you the final part of the Stalingrad trilogy, the ending of the story that started in "Blazing Steppe" and continued in "Fortress on the Volga" campaigns. The new campaign will tell you about the combat operations of the Soviet IL-2 attack planes in December 1942. The development of the third part took much longer than we initially expected, partly because of the need to research a huge amount of data from the archives telling about the actions of the three Soviet Fronts and Air Armies, but the result will prove itself worthy of the effort spent. We are proud to announce the Pre-Order of the new historical Campaign "Ice Ring" for IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad. Basing on the combat order records and operational reports of the Soviet 8th Air Army, we have managed to recreate an absolutely unique history of combat operations of the 226th Ground-Attack Air Division regiments. The campaign consists of three large stages, during which you'll operate from 4 different airfields and take part in the most dramatic events of the final part of the Battle of Stalingrad. The successful counter-offensive of the Red Army in November 1942 led to the encirclement of the 284 thousands troops including the German 6th Army and 4th Tank Army, as well as Romanian divisions. Then the task of supplying the troops was assigned to the transport and bomber units of the Luftwaffe, so the first part of the new campaign is dedicated to the very beginning of the Soviet air blockade formation. At the end of November, the command of the Soviet 8th Air Army issued an order to relocate the 235th Fighter Air Division to the south of the city. It was also decided to form a special air group of IL-2's pilots from the 226th ShAD who were experienced in dogfights and flying in difficult weather conditions and place it under the 235th IAD headquarters command. During this period, you'll fly reconnaissance flights, search and destroy German transport aircraft in the air and strike at their take-off and landing airfields inside the cauldron. The situation of the encircled enemy group on December 2-6, 1942 from the reporting map of the Don Front and the situation at the morning of December 2nd from the campaign map. In mid-December, when the special air group was disbanded, you'll return back to your regiment. Against the background of the ongoing reorganization in the division and the beginning of the enemy offensive from the direction of Kotelnikovo (Operation "Winter Storm"), you'll have to fly several combat missions directly against the surrounded German troops. At the end of the campaign, when the situation on the southern flank of the Stalingrad Front becomes critical, you'll be sent to the most threatened sector. As part of a hurriedly formed ground attack air group, you'll take part in the heaviest battles on the Myshkova River, which determined the outcome of the entire German counter-offensive and sealed the fate of the troops surrounded in and near the devastated city. Events on the Myshkova River from December 22 to 26, 1942 from the reporting map of the Stalingrad Front and the situation in the middle of December 22nd from the campaign map. You'll fly 15 combat missions on the IL-2 AM-38 (model 1942), about 7 hours of gameplay in total. The new campaign is scheduled to be released in Summer 2020. The IL-2 Sturmovik Team
  8. If there wasn't big difference in the performance between D-5 and D-15 we don't need to do such restrictions for the AI planes. I'll discuss this question with VikS.
  9. Perhaps we'll do so, given that, for example, we'll have to use Spit IXe from the very beginning of the career.
  10. Ok, thanks! Of course it would be a pity if they don't have time to get D-15s before August 22.
  11. Hi, Luke! I suppose we need to find somewhere the lists of losses for these P-51 fighter groups, as it was done for the P-38 and P-47 squadrons, when we were able to determine the arrival of new modifications with an accuracy of 10-15 days. But I didn't see such P-51 lists of losses anythere...
  12. Please, help us to find information when these squadrons began to receive P-51D-15 in 1944: 354th FG: 353rd Fighter Squadron 355th Fighter Squadron 356th Fighter Squadron 363rd FG: 380th Fighter Squadron 381st Fighter Squadron 382nd Fighter Squadron
  13. Thank you for your feedback) Regarding air defense of Soviet airfields - on the one hand, it was an optimization of performance in the campaign (it was created in mid-2016), and on the other hand, Soviet airfields in 1941-42 either had very weak air defense or it was completely absent. If I recast this campaign again in the future, I'll try to somehow resolve this issue.

  15. Luke, there are a lot of photos of Spitfires with bomb loads in the books "2nd Tactical Air Force" Vol 2-4 ... and from the Vol.2
