Hello everybody,

............................

Our map designers are finishing the map of the Southern Kursk salient that includes Prokhorovka. As we announced before, it will utilize the higher detailed landscape wireframe and higher detailed buildings damage. When it is finished, the work on the scenario campaigns for "Clash at Prokhorovka" will begin. The campaigns will recreate the large scale historical events of July 1943 to the South-West of Prokhorovka. Today we can show you several screenshots of this map:

............................

We also started the implementation of the major feature - animated tank crewmen:

............................

Here are first in-game screenshots of Sopwith Dolphin and Fokker D.VII which will be ready soon:

............................

Here are some screenshots of Me 262 A-1/2 (its paint schemes and cockpit are nearly ready):

............................

 

Full news - here is a full text and visual materials

Thanks @Han!

 

A small question regarding the Sopwith Dolphin: are you going to include the same weapon mods as in Rise of Flight? The overwing and wing mounted Lewis guns to be precise. Or will it just be the cockpit mods? (Aldis sight etc.)

Nice update!! With the addition of the crewmembers, the tanks of TC are really coming alive! 

 

PS: Was the 262 equipped with a headrest?

Fantastic update as always, was eagerly awaiting this one for a while now. The Sopwith Dolphin looks fascinating, especially with having such a low upper wing. I look forward to getting my paws on it.

Impressive amount of good stuff this time around. Nice to see the Prokhorovka map in all its glory.

 

One has to appreciate the amount of work that goes into animating the crew members in those extremely tight compartments inside the tanks.

Hope we get to see some Allied content soon, we've seen the 262 quite a few times now...

 

Really happy to see how far progress on the Dolphin is! One of my favourite WW1 planes and it should be a lot of fun

Wow! Any news on whether there are contoured in-mission maps? It would be good to know where the ridges and valleys are - Prokhorovka area is full of hidden dry valleys - also useful for mission designers and editors to know
