Attention Pilots!

 

It is our pleasure to announce some new Collector Planes for the IL-2 Sturmovik: Great Battles series! We are still waist deep in Battle of Normandy and Flying Circus Vol. II development, but we have decided to push on with our partner Ugra Media and bring you a few more iconic and important aircraft! The following planes have long been discussed as possible projects or desired by community members and now we are able to make the commitment to build them. So, without further delay here they are.


- C-47A Skytrain

 

- Lisouov Li-2 (Soviet version of the DC-3/C-47)

 

- Sopwith Snipe 7.F1

 

- Siemens-Schuckert D.IV

 

FULL ANNOUNCEMENT HERE.

Ooooh, didn't expect the Soviet transport (slash bomber!) too. Will definitely pick all these up as they're available

I'm hugely excited for the Li.2 but does it have to be a seperate 20 euro purchase? Do C-47 buyers at least get a discount?

 

Also YAY for super-late-war WW1 fighters that were not in ROF! Yay! for more transport planes! Yay for everything basically. Yay. Yaaayyyyy. Yay I say.

It reminds me of the sale of the Yak9 and Yak9-t. Now C47 and Li-2.

We could do a numbers game, and change the Li-2 for il-4 xd

It's good news at least we will have something to launch with the allies ^^

Awesome news, knew about one of them from the coded teaser, but great to hear about the FC collectors aircraft. Shall purchase the C47 and Snipe as soon as I get home and/or they become purchasable. Also interesting to read from this announcement that seems FC3 is certain to be made at some point also.

Kinda sad the Li-2 will be a separate purchase but it is what it is.

Makes sense for them to be separate purchases with the amount of work needed to make the Soviet version.

Indeed, they look the same but there are significant differences between the 2 (engines, cockpit,...).

 

Have a nice day.

Well... It's no Roland D.VIb but I think I'll have to fall in love ;)

 

...and to think we thought we'd never see another WWI aircraft!! 😄

 

The Lisunov-2 is also a bit of a miracle to have - and it'll give us a bomber slow enough for the Ju-88C6 to catch on the Eastern European scenarios... plus it'll potentially give a slightly larger bomb-load than the Pe-2 (although still likely less than the Il-4 would).

 

Honestly, the only downside to all of this is that I'll be waiting eagerly to pre-order the ones which I can't yet. Why, oh why, do we have to wait until they enter production to pre-order?? 😄

Money spent of trinkets like these keeps development alive...I'm down for that: pre-ordered.

Tommy Sopwith's finest:

 

From Kermit's comments, it seems to suffer from the same wheely-bin directional stability issues that we've discussed with the Dr.1, Camel, etc. Should be a fun flyer.

Quote from the announcement regarding Siemens-Schuckert D.IV.:

This plane will be a challenge to make as references are tough to come by and we don’t believe any original examples survive today. However, we love a good challenge and plan to make this bird take flight just like all the rest.

 

PTO confirmed!!!

Oooo, lots of people are going to be happy with this announcement....not me, but lots!

None of these are of interest to me personally.
