Achtung Spitfire! is a 20-mission single-player Scripted Campaign featuring a fictional storyline that is inspired by historical events. Your character is a young Russian pilot from Siberia serving on the North Caucasus Front in late May 1943. The campaign features missions inspired by the Soviet 37th and 56th Armies attack on the German 44th Army Corps west of the city of Krymskaya. Your regiment will be flying the famous British-built Spitfire Mk.Vb which was loaned to the Red Air Force via the Lend Lease program. Meeting Spitfires in the skies of the Kuban region came as quite a surprise to the Luftwaffe! 

You are assigned to the 57th GIAP, which was part of the 216th Mixed Aviation Division of the 4th Air Army, an elite Guards unit. Your regiment is deployed to Slavyanskaya airfield, near the town of same name. Experience fierce aerial combat in the skies above the picturesque Northern Caucasian region of the Soviet Union. Defend coastal ports on dawn patrols, escort friendly bombers over enemy territory and help suppress AAA batteries, but always be on the lookout for enemy fighters! 

Time frame: May 25th, 1943 - June 1st, 1943
Regiment: 57th GIAP
Available Aircraft: Spitfire Mk.Vb
Duration: 20 missions
Mission Duration: 15 to 50 minutes
Average total playtime: Approx. 12 hours
Author: =The Syndicate= 

This campaign requires IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Kuban and the Spitfire MkVb Collector Plane.

Awesome! The scripted campaigns are always worth the money IMO. Glad to see one for the Spitfire.

I might wait until the Spitty pilots use R.A.F. slang...

I'm getting this! I hope we encourage Blacksix to make campaigns for collector planes too!

I guess you'll have to wait a little bit more, since these Spitfires are flown by USSR pilots.

almost my exact sentiment.  Only difference is, I don't actively dislike the Spitfire.  I am more indifferent to it

The MkVB is one of the most fun aircraft to just throw around the sky, its handling is just wonderful, another excuse to fly it is well welcome

When we can expect release (rough estimation)?

 

In our next update. I don't have a firm ETA though and I'm not going to guess at this point other than to say several weeks.

Most likely, but things are always in flux. My previous comments about ETAs have been proven wrong when something goes wrong or someone gets in a car accident or gets ill etc. Our current schedule says end of Sept. I hope it holds true.

Epic video - nicely made and I laughed at that German gunner waddling away from being shot up at the end.

 

I am nostalgic for the Spit as it was an iconic airplane for me as a Pup.  She is a fun plane to throw around but I find her a difficult gun platform as she lofts on the elevator control and gun placement is very spread.

 

I also find myself fighting her down to earth but I think I just need more stick time and learn her ins and outs.  At the moment I dial nose down when I am about to engage in a fight to keep her from bobbing up over my intended target when I don't want her to.

 

Completely different to others I've flown in game.

 

Now, where's my wallet.??

Don't worry Jason. As you and the rest of the team have clearly said many times before: It's a rough estimation. I trust you guys will deliver wich is the most important point of it.


Can't wait to fly it.

Thanks! That was a specific request from Haash and I couldn't resist making sure that it was the final scene :)

I’m in on this one for sure. Thanks for all the hard work Haash & company! I guess everyone knows I’m a Spitfire fan already. 😎

A light touch on the controls is all it takes. If you use that to outfly your quarry first, you can get in close and a couple of cannon rounds to the cockpit will end the hunt. Even .303 is effective at close range when well placed. 😉

It doesn't say so, but is there a possibility of having a special Spitfire skin for those who pre-order? I'll buy it nonetheless, but they're always a nice surprise.

:P

Hi all,

 

Let me thanks Jason and the team for allowing us to work with them and produce this Scripted Campaign. Also thanks to all colaborators and members of The Syndicate squadron that made this work possible. Without them it would have been impossible.

 

Couple of details...

Not only for pre-orders but...this campaign contain 20 exclusive Spitfire 4K skins made by E69_Julian57.

 

Also the scripted campaign will be avaliable from release in: Spanish, English, French, German and Russian.

And as I have said multiple times now, you did an absolute awsome work!! And thanks for including that final scene ;)

 

Thanks all for the support,

 

Haash

 

P.S. Thanks for the coverage on your blog ShamrockOneFive (https://stormbirds.blog/2019/08/07/actung-spitfire-campaign-announced-for-il-2-battle-of-kuban/)

I’m not sure if this has been asked before but is it possible to get coop campaigns made in the future?  Or even transition these sp ones to a coop? 

 

Actually on another note...I still I’ll haven’t been able to get coop working :(  Regardless of how many ports I’ve opened

Sorry, 19 actually 😂. Player will be using 3 and the rest are for squad mates and leaders.

 

I suppose they will be made public/added once the campaign is released but do not take this as a oficial/sure thing because it isn’t.

Tried to pre-order earlier today but my orders kept getting cancelled for some reason.  Wouldn't take PayPal (my usual purchase/payment method) or a VISA card I tried when PayPal didn't work. (PayPal e-mailed me saying I had made two purchases, but then also emailed me that both purchases had been refunded by the seller, so I'm not sure what was going wrong). I'll try again in a few days - hopefully whatever the problem was will have fixed itself by then.  Glad to see that others are not having the same problem, though it does make me wonder why Sneaksie et al. don't seem to want my money 😕

I've purchased this as the Vb is such a dream to fly. And also as a promise to myself that I will be a Very Good Boy and save up over the next few months so I can buy a PC that can handle offline campaigns without slowdown and stop playing on a frigging laptop screen!
