Greetings all! I'm very pleased to announce the return of Sturmovikfest in 2021! This year marks the second year of the Sturmovikfest festival and will be slated to take place starting Sunday, April 25th until Sunday, May 2nd. This week long festival is a community driven event featuring multiplayer fly-in events on servers world wide, special events, and more! There may even be a few surprises along the way. Let’s celebrate one of the best combat flight simulation series in history!

 

What is Sturmovikfest?

 

This is an online festival organized by the IL-2 Sturmovik fan community to celebrate all things in the series.

 

How does it work?

 

Throughout the week of April 25th, servers, squads, streamers and more will be running events and fly-in's to check out new multiplayer servers and old favourites alike. Last year helped propel new servers to the top of the list and saw fantastic events such as the mass formation fly-over and Project R racing.

 

How can I help?

 

Last year was incredible! The community came together and came up with events, festival skins, streams and special YouTube videos and more. I hope this year will be the same. Throw your support in any way you can by attending events or contacting me with your event plans. I'll do my best to get the word out and show off your support on the festival page.

 

I can't wait to see what we come up with this year!

Sorry for some mistakes, I am writing from Russian to English through a translator.  
As stated above, you can add races, shooting on the move (in first gear), artillery fire at 6-7 kilometers (for the SU-122 and SU-152), one observer is used for the correction on the U-2vs.  Fight "wall to wall" 15 tankers against 15 tankers on the T-34 STZ / UTZ and Pz IV, respectively, on a flat and large field.  Self-propelled anti-aircraft guns will also come out soon, and you can think of something for them too.  for example, shooting at a distance of 1500 meters.  Well, anti-aircraft guns against anti-aircraft guns!
I am the head of the regiment = 13HVO =, it consists of 8 people, we can take part in events.

Sounds like good fun to me. Let me know what your scheduled event times are, what server they are happening on, and I will add them to the schedule!

We usually meet on the Finnish server on weekends at 16:00 Moscow time, but it still depends on how busy it is.

Hi all! I've added a link to the Google Doc schedule. It's very patchwork right now as things come together, however, I've already started to slot in some events. A few things will move around and we'll not doubt have to do a little juggling so all of this is preliminary for now. If you have something you're planning, let me know and I'll see how I can fit it in!

I see some fly-ins on Combat Box which is great, however do you know if they're planning to have another Air Race event like last year?  Th races I was able to participate in where a hoot!

Various server groups have been in touch and are planning events. What's up there is very preliminary so stay tuned for more. I don't want to steal any of their thunder when events get announced!

 

Also, I'm hoping that we can get a mass formation event scheduled like @JimTM did last year. That was outstanding and a ton of fun. Also requiring a lot of organizational skills.

I think there's a subtle hint somewhere in that message.  :)

 

I'll try and cook up a mass of something. Looking forward to another great Sturmovikfest!

Love the Stormbirds site. It's like a IL2 Friday Dev update, every day for every flight sim!

 

I'll try to join in for this year. Looking forward to some large bomber or strike group missions online with other people.

Who knows, maybe I can get the BlitzPigs to show up on an open server instead of just flying on ours for a change...

 

Oink oink!

Might have been a bit! You made the mistake of doing such a fantastic job last year! I'd consider it one of the signature moments of the whole festival. It'd be great to repeat!

Just a quick mess-around I did with some of the footage from the above video to promote this year's STURMOVINFEST.

It's not what I intended to do ultimately but I just thought I'd stick it up anyway being as I did it!!

Anyway... enjoy the music...

Hey folks! We have plenty of interest this year in the festival. I've just updated the schedule with more events. Once things settle down a bit more I'll start to do time and time zones for each event and start to solidify the schedule.

 

If you've reached out to me and haven't heard back or you heard back and I haven't done something yet.... please let me know! The brain is a little fried recently and it's been hectic! I'm not trying to ignore anyone :)

Hey folks! Quick festival update. Lots of events are starting to run their sign-ups now for the festival so be sure to check those out. I'm working on solidifying the schedule now and inserting all of the timezones so that it's a bit easier to manage to find the right event based on your proximity to one of several timezones.

 

I'm looking forward to joining in on as many of these as I can!

The schedule continues to be refined! I've done some work on it tonight to get the first couple of days sorted out and things are really coming together.

 

In-case you missed it... the mass formation event sign-up is now underway! This was great fun last year and it'd be great to have lots of individuals and squads represented.

I'll be signing on to the mass formation event later on and then jumping into the Flying Circus Sunday furball on the Jasta 5 Flugpark server before finally hopping on Finnish Virtual Pilots sometime tonight!

Yesterday was a blast! Thank you everyone for making it as much fun as it was. There was a mass formation, a jam packed Flying Circus server, and just about every other big server in the community was hopping with players. Love to see that!

It's definitely a challenge to organize a global event. The Unprofessionals is based in Australia and had fly-in times early on that were suitable for Asia Pacific. I haven't heard about any other events for the festival they do run regular events on their server. Worth checking out!

Hey folks! I'm putting together a recap and a cinematic trailer to try and capture some of what happened over the course of this week. I have a long list of people to thank that I'm preparing but I wanted to generally put the word out here to everyone as well. Thank you for helping make this happen! Thank you for participating, supporting, and generally being the awesome community that you are. This week was fun! It was tiring too but it was fun!
