Defence of the Reich - the final...

18 January 2015

Posted by 33LIMA in Mission Reports
Concluding FlatSpinMan's Il-2 '46 campaign for the Bf 109!   Having some months back posted reports for the first four missions in this entertaining and highly recommended campaign, I thought it was over-due time to complete the story! The Allied bomber offensive 1942-45 has always been a particular interest of mine and the ability of modded Il-2 '46 to support this - and other 'Western Front' campaigns - transformed my opinions of and interest in this classic sim, which, in its latest forms, is in my opinion still much the best combat flight sim for World War 2...and beyond....

Posted by Erik in CombatACE News
A nice look back at the first aircraft with the callsign Air Force One, its history, and its final home. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Stalingrad Stuka - new style!

04 January 2015

Posted by 33LIMA in Mission Reports
Flying the Ju 87 in Il-2: Battle of Stalingrad!   Having flown a Stalingrad Stuka campaign mission in Il-2 '46, it's time to repeat the process, this time in the new sim devoted to the famous battle. My first time playing through the BoS Single Player campaign, I've been sticking to flying the Yak-1, in an approximation of a conventional pilot career. While BoS doesn't support multiple virtual pilots, each active with a given squadron, you can fly any aircraft you choose on any campaign mission. Rather than 'switching sides' as well as planes in mid-campaign, I decided to start ov...

Ground attack in Il-2: Battle of...

Helping close the ring around Stalingrad in a new phase of the battle!     One of the things I like about the Single Player campaign in IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad (BoS) is the way it follows the main phases of the historical battle. BoS unfortunately doesn't let you create multiple pilot identities who can serve with named, historical squadrons; the next best thing is to choose the same plane for each campaign mission, as if you were flying with the same unit. For my first run through the campaign, I decided to fly for the VVS and soon settled on the superior Yak-1, first in a lon...

Stalingrad Stuka - classic style

02 January 2015

Posted by 33LIMA in Mission Reports
Flying the Ju 87 over the front on the Volga - in Il-2 1946!   Why fly the Stuka in 'classic' Il-2 - over Stalingrad, to boot - when you can fly it in Il-2: Battle of Stalingrad (BoS)? If you have access to both sims, that's a good question. The new sim models the Stuka to a level of detail that is visually much superior, plus BoS portrays the city and the battlefield around it in tremendous detail. See what I mean?     Well, there are three reasons for playing this mission in the earlier sim, in my case. Firstly, I want to to make a comparison - to feature Stuka ca...
