Pre-Order New Historical Campaign "Fortress on the Volga" - Discussion

Recommended Posts

Dear Friends,

 

The Вattle of Stalingrad was one of the decisive events of the World War II and there is still a lot of interest in it. New historical research and data from archives allow us to continue to reveal little-known, but important events and facts. The Blazing Steppe campaign, released in 2017, told the story of Soviet fighters in August-September 1942, but this time we invite you to experience the battle from the German side.

 

We are proud to announce a new historical campaign - "Fortress on the Volga" for IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad. We are now accepting Pre-Orders!

The campaign is scheduled to be released later this month.

Haven't bought a scripted campaign before, and I'm thinking of picking this one up as my first. How do they compare to the regular missions? I assume they're more detailed

First of all, the missions have voluminous briefings containing a description of the combat actions for a specific moment and imitating the style of the German military memoirs.

Screens from my first campaign Ten Days of Autumn:

All missions are made by hand, have well-designed routes and they are based on the real tasks that this unit performed during this period.

And I forgot about the most important thing! :)

You've asked me many times before and I didn't block the modifications this time, so you can choose Glass Head Rest. This isn't historical for the Autumn 1942, but it will be very convenient for many of you. The choice of weapons and fuel is blocked as it will be associated with the plot of the campaign.

Out of interest why JG52 not JG3, given latter were there inside the kessel until the end? 

1) I wanted to continue to tell the story of a German pilot that began in the "Ten Days of Autumn" campaign

2) Usually I show a very short period of time in the campaign, I./JG 52 was there from September 22 to November 5, I used an even shorter period from September 22 to October 10

Understood. I think that they were lead by Steinhoff at the time? Unfortunately he never wrote (in English) about his time at Stalingrad, but refers in other papers (Straits of Messines) to Luftwaffe forward controllers in the grain elevator. There are some quite harrowing passages as he spoke directly with men who knew that they were about to be lost.

Havoc sounds good as well.
