    IL2:Tank Crew available on pre-order

    It’s here... The surprize news from 777 Studios, announced last year, that they were venturing into the Tank Simulator market is here.... Like the other IL2 series products the pre-order will allow players of other IL2 series flight simulators to now drive both the KV1 and the “Tiger” within any of the IL2 maps. These tanks will be completely operable in any of the IL2 maps and so the opportunity for Ground support to air battles and/or Close Air Support to tank offensive is possible. Eventually there wil be five tanks a side and also a flak vehicle each side and all will be based around a new detaillled map feature in a key villiage during the Battle of Kursk. Pre-order for IL2Tank Crew can purchased from Steam or directly from 777 Studios here:

    IL2:Flying Circus released on preorder

    Like so many of the IL2: Series, IL2:Flying Circus, 777 Studios replacement for the outstanding Rise of Flight WWI flight sim has been release for preorder. Of course this allows players of the other IL2 series sims to fly the aircraft as they are release. At this early stage only the SPAD 13 and Fokker DR1 are available to fly but they have been completely rework to fit into the state of the art IL2 Sim engine and so benefit from improved texturing (4K) and better flight model and damage effects. As the weeks go by before full release, more aircraft and a whole new map covering the Western Front will be introduced. Also, for the faith players of Rise of Flight there is a special discount of up to $15 depending upon when and where you purchased your Rise of Flight game. Login to you account and check you profile for a Promo Code on the Rise of Flight website. Then use it if you pre-order is via Steam or direct from 777 Studios here: And..... yes..... This means (if the planes are added into the mission) you would be able to pit your SPAD 13 against a Bf109-G4 and see how you get on!!!!!

    IL2 develops Tank Crew

    A new tank simulator seems set to break records. On the 77th anniversary of the invasion of Russia, 777 Studios annnounce that the highly popular air combat simulator game, IL2:Sturmovik with 3 great products; Stalingrad, Moscow and Kuban, is moving into tanks. Already having two tanks available to drive in the game, IL2:Tank Crew will be a new expansion that utilises a huge map (on tank game standards) and 10 driveable tanks (5 axis and 5 Allied) plus a flak vehicle each. Here is an initial look at a T-34... The map area is based around the largest tank battle of WWII during the Battle of Kursk and pits the defending Red Army against the Last attempt by the Wermacht to break the Russian lines. Here is the map: Thnkfully, this game should interface directly with the Flight simulators and so the ability to call in air support should be there. The tanks can be fully manned by humans, AI or a tank commander may also be able to control a squad of AI tanks giving the full range of single player, Squads and right down to fully manned tanks.... Also, these new tanks wil be operable in all the previous verions of IL2 thus greatly expanding the player contributin towards online dynamic war servers.... The tanks and flak vehicles will be: Allied: 1. T-34-76 model 1943 2. KV-1s 3. M4A2 4. SU-122 5. SU-152 6. GAZ-MM + 72K Axis: 7. PzKpfw III Ausf.M 8. PzKpfw IV Ausf.G 9. PzKpfw V Ausf.D "Panther" 10. PzKpfw VI Ausf.H1 "Tiger" 11. Sd. Kfz. 184 "Ferdinand" 12. Sd. Kfz. 10 + Flak38 Th terrain wil also be modelled in much greater detail and will include crushable trees and destructible buildings thus allowing tanks to behave accurately where ever you wish to position them. Great effort is also being made to model them accurately so that the rounds have the correct trajectory, impac and damage effect against the tanks having accurate modelling of armour systems and weapons, operated by the correct crew members. Thus the driver will not be able to load the main gun etc. All in all a very exciting project that is due for release in a little over a year. However, like the rest of the IL2 series an early access programme will allow those contributing to gain access to the various tanks as they are completed. The first of which will be coming as soon as July... The Russian KV-1 and the famous German “Tiger”!!!! Read even more about this exciting new game HERE - IL2:TANK CREW

    IL2:BoBP Map Announced

    IL2:Battle of Bodenplatte is the next offering in the IL2:Battle of Stalingrad series and covers over 6 months of the later stages of WWII. Based around the Western front the associated map includes huge swathes of Holland, Denmark, France and Germany. Just under 130,000 Square Kilometres of faithfully reproduced terrain using 3D mapping and satellite imagery adjusted for the time period. As you can see, a huge number of the active airfields will be implemented which should make for exciting off line career modes as well as extensive online multiplayer dynamic war scenarios. All very exciting when combined with the new US and UK aircraft set.
