Was there not a map about Odessa and the Ural? Would be nice with I - 153 there


Odessa yes. Ural?? Isn't that a region in the middle off Russia?..

Today gotta be the day for VR. Cant wait to do some VR groundpounding with my FW.

 

Well it is the end of March, so I am keeping fingers crossed... would certainly be nice!

 

More importantly though however long it takes to get it ready for public release I am fine with as well.

I am really looking forward to getting back into this sim in VR.

I'm hoping to see a little more about the IL-2 Model 1943s cockpit seeing as they wrote that update about how they had to try and recreate some elements of the cockpit without solid photos of it. Sounds interesting. I'd like to see what they have done.

Those videos are amazing. For some reason I had no idea the I-153 was in one of these.! Indeed what a tease.

Same here. Still looks promising, did the devs communicate on her development recently ?

 

By the way, I'd really be thankful to anyone russian-speaking if could bring an english traduction, because I'd love to understand what this man is saying.....  :huh:  :rolleyes:

It was only Thursday they said, that they were about done putting the release candidate together for beta testing. Today seems a bit early for an update. End of the week or early next week seems more likely, given that we're dealing with something as complex as VR implementation.

The new IL 2 looks a little bit better with a turret , but that is all, I can really live with what we have in this case. My blood will not speed up until we get the A 20 and HS 129, and maybe the P 39

We'll get the Kuban map before that. I imagine a lot of us have a raging boner for that.

As they said in the latest DD

"More than a half of the work on the IL-2 mod. 1943 flight model is done and the Spitfire flight model is in the works as well. 3D models of the A-20B Boston bomber and the Yak-7b fighter are being built according to the schedule and we just started the work on the P-39L-1"

Maybe we will see WIP screenshots of Yak7B or P39 next :)

They started working on the il2s FM a month before that DD so its about 1-2 months to make FM?

Can't wait for more Kuban Content!!

Yak-7 looks amazing. Wonder wether a 37mm will come with it as well.

Update 2.010 Thursday Next Week? Il-2-43 looks very good. Maybe a Surprise like PTAB and SD-2 Containers?

Yes the 7b looks very good. I have no clue about the PTAB bombs but i don't think we will get the SD-2 bombs. In the last DD they gave away the loadout options of the Hs-129. I'm not sure that will be all, but i highly doubt they will add more later down the road. 

 

It's likely you would be interested in the armament of this aircraft, so here it is:
Two fuselage mounted 7.92mm machine guns MG 17, 1000 rounds per each.
Two fuselage mounted 15mm guns MG 151/15, 250 rounds per each. They can be replaced with 20 mm guns MG 151/20 with the same amount of ammo.
30mm drum-fed gun Mk 101 in the gun pod (30 rounds).
30mm belt-fed gun Mk 103 in the gun pod (80 rounds).
Four 7.92mm machine guns MG 17 in the gun pod, 1000 rounds per each.
Two SC 50 underwing bombs.
Four SC 50 underwing bombs.
SC 250 underbelly bomb.

We really need the PTAB IMHO, but since Han's DD about the IL-2's sight specifically mentioned to procedure for dropping them, I think it'd be strange if we didn't get them.

I think 1st or 2nd week of May is a more realistic ETA for 2.010.

Not sure why. Unless player tanks bunch together like lambs to the slaughter an IL-2 carrying PTAB can get one (1) tank easily, then it's over.

A good Bf 110 pilot can carry bombs to take out a full platoon and still allowing for the majority missing.

I noticed server admins of two of the biggest venues talking here over the last week, about how they think players progress too rapidly through their objectives and saying they are looking for still more ways to slow people down.
