WW2 air combat simulation which takes place over the Soviet Union in Stalingrad and with the DLC in Moscow.
Easily in the top 3 of any combat simulator. Realistic looking aircraft and scenery. Animation of the guns, propellers and other aspects of the aircraft are nicely done, Great lighting too with smoke plumes, explosions, clouds and more.
The sounds of bombers flying are distinct, the aircraft engines on the aircraft and the propellers all sound authentic as you would hear them in real life.
Menus and Options
Again as with the IL2 sims, easy layout, easy to configure your controllers and graphics.
A single player campaign follows the the battle which took place in November 1942 called operation Uranus to liberate the city of Stalingrad. Playing through the campaign allows you to unlock upgrades and modifications for your aircraft. You can also create your own custom scenarios. Multiplayer is also available allowing you to test your skills online with real human players. The flight dynamics are very good and on a par with other major combat and flight simulators. You can even control a tank if you want to!
A great WW2 combat simulation. One of the best out there and in our top 3.It is not cheap but we can certainly say it's quality.
