Product Description

Manufacturer's Description:

Oleg Maddox’s world famous Il-2 Sturmovik series of flight simulators continues to expand. The latest offering, Il-2 1946, adds 36 new planes, four new gigantic maps, over a hundred new ground objects, and nearly 200 new campaign missions. This new opus also includes all of the previous Il-2 series content. What began as a one-aircraft study sim is now an astonishing anthology, with a whopping 229 flyable aircraft and over 300 aircraft total! Not to mention that players will have the opportunity to get a first glance at the future of the series arriving next year: Storm of War Battle of Britain via exclusive bonus videos.

The game offers 32 new flyable fighters and bombers, and four new AI aircraft. Over the Russian Front, the player will gain access to six new versions of the Petlyakov Pe-2, the most famous Soviet level and dive bomber of the war. In the Far East and the Pacific, players will finally fly the long-awaited one true heir to the series namesake, the Il-10 Sturmovik. Other new planes range from the Ki-27 Nate, the plane that fought against the Flying Tigers in 1941, to the N1K2 George and J2M5 Jack, the two most advanced Japanese fighters of WWII. The player will fly over a dozen new jet and rocket aircraft such as the MiG-9 jet fighter, the predecessor to the famous MiG-15 that gained world-wide fame in the Korean War; the Ta-183, a jet fighter designed by Kurt Tank, the creator of the famous FW-190, and the Arado Ar-234 Blitz, the world’s first operation jet bomber.

Large new historical maps of the Kiev region; a map of Manchuria focusing on a border region between USSR, China and Japanese-occupied Korea; a large bonus Burma map; and an online Khalkin Gol / Nomonhan map.

The game features nine new campaigns with nearly 200 missions, all with incredible realism and attention to detail. There are detailed careers for fighter and bomber pilots, for the German, Soviet, and Japanese air forces, offering such varied objectives as flying jet bombers over occupied Europe, to intercepting American B-29 Super fortresses over Iwo Jima and Japanese home islands! As opposed to dynamically generated campaigns that shipped with our previous offerings, the new missions are all hand-made, giving the player much more detailed environments, and much more exciting missions.

Three of the nine campaigns are a departure into alternate history, focusing on hypothetical battles between the Soviet Union and Germany in the year 1946 where WWII still rages on. Both the VVS and Luftwaffe now have access to advanced jet and rocket fighters, and other revolutionary technology. All of these new planes are modeled with the same incredible degree of historical accuracy and attention to detail as all the other planes in Il-2.

With the alternate history campaigns, the player will gain access to such exotic equipment as Soviet mixed-power fighters, using both piston and rocket engines; will fly incredible jet aircraft capable of sub-sonic speeds; and launch wire-guided air-to-air rockets at enemy bomber formations. 1946 also adds an incredible variety of new ground targets, including, for the first time in the series, trenches and bunkers that give a whole new dimension to the ground attack aspect of the sim.

The new planes, as well as many of the other ones in the series, come with a host of historical paint schemes, showing many of the individual aircraft or squadrons that served in WWII.

Also included is a detailed document, totaling over 450 pages of information, giving the low-down on every single one of our 229 flyable aircraft, and allowing new players much easier access to the incredible variety of aircraft in the sim.

Rounding off the package is a slew of exclusive bonus content including a making of, interview videos and screenshots of the new features, plus exclusive screenshots and never seen before videos taken from the next Maddox game: Storm of War: Battle of Britain. Those videos highlight some of the great improvements players will enjoy at end of next year. You’ll also find IL-2 Sturmovik: Forgotten Battles, Ace Expansion Pack and Pacific Fighters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tally ho chums - Fantastic 23 Dec 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a big fan of the IL2 line of games, and this release adds on to what is already a fast growing collection of superbly detailed aircraft. There are literally hundreds of battle flying hours here, the missions have been well thought out and the AI challenging.

This isn't a game for the faint of heart, you have very little time to think about flying when in battle, all ww2 planes were heavy on mechnical controls, all of these controls are working in this game. So part of the fun is finding how these controls work and when to use them (for example) proppellor pitch contols to slow when in a split-S.

This game also includes previous addons including Pacific Fighters / Aces and others. All of these are in the same game environment, so there is no need to switch between games when playing.

The greatest achivement for Oleg and his team is his ability to create an overall emersive feeling of flight. I have often found myself on tender hooks in the foray of battle. Hairs stand on end when I see tracer bullets fly from my six where my wingman should be.

Some of the game scenarios are classic, but the realism is outstanding. Try diving a Hurricane at a fast moving train from one thousand feet and hear the engines scream - oh joy.

Ok, enough talking back to work - smoke me a kipper I'll be back for breakfast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does work on Windows 7 64 bit 23 Jan 2011
By Steve
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have 64bit Windows 7, for ages I thought IL2 1946 didn't work but it does. Firstly install the program from the exe file that starts with "a" sorry I can't remember the proper name. Mine is installed directly on my c drive not in the program folder, lastly during installation make sure you set it to use opengl not directx and it should work fine. My system is

Windows 7 Home Premium 64
Intel I5 Quad 2.66ghz
4gb memory
ATI 6870 graphics

As I was only able to sort this out a few days ago it's been ages since I played the game so I'm seriously out of flying practice at the moment but I used to love this game and in the short time I've played it since it still looks pretty good to me even if I aren't a brilliant pilot.

Hopefully this helps people make a buying decision the geme may be old but it's still good and flight sims seem to be rare at the moment. I've also contacted the windows 7 game compatibility site in the hope that they will update their information which is wrong currently.

4.0 out of 5 stars IL2 is Magic 2 April 2007
By Chris A
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a must buy for anyone who even vaguely likes WWII flight sims or any combat sim. The sheer breadth of this package is amazing. It covers several theatres of the war over the whole timeline and even in to a hypothetical extension of WWII into 1946.

I have yet to explore even a small fraction of what is on offer, but first impressions are very good. The simulator is based around a tried and tested graphics engine that has you in a virtual cockpit that re-creates in detail the whole of the flight deck (360 degrees) for each of the many planes in the game. Thought the graphics may not be best in class, they are very good and can run smoothly on relatively low grade PCs. Some have commented that the sound is crude, but it is contextual at least.

Picture this:- you are flying a Junkers divebomber over the Russian front and have been ordered to dive bomb the Mariat a large warship currently docked in port. After evading the Russian air defenses you and your flight of Stukkas make a bee line for the great grey boat lying at anchor. There she is !! you can clearly make her out amongst the smoke and hail of flak coming up to greet you. You call your flight into attack and then flip your plane onto its back, chop the throttle back to idle and extend the dive brakes you pull back on the stick and go into a vertical dive directly over the target. You quicly pick up speed and can hear the screech of the Stukka, at 300 meters you drop your single bomb and pull up sharply to make a slow and vunerable dash at full throttle over the sea as the Mariat goes up up behind you in a massive explosion.

You can fly aircraft from every side on almost every front.

3.0 out of 5 stars For dedicated flight simulator fans only! 20 Dec 2011
By Rhodie
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This flight simulation game requires the player to train to fly aircraft using a joystick or yoke and about 70 combination keyboard controls. It is not for the casual player and requires many hours of practice just to get off the ground. However there is no tutorial with the DVD and joystick-game fine tuning is required! The DVD is only basic version 7 and requires 1,29GB of zipped download updates. Fortunately UbiSoft and Mission4Today forum members have provided some helpful guides and links to the updates and their own excellent tutorial. Start with:[...]. Be prepared to allocate a lot of time and reading and a heavy learning curve.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not for the faint-hearted 15 May 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
IL-2 is a game which is very hard to get into unless you have a serious thing for planes. The controls are, at first glance, difficult, and the lack of instructions and interactive tutorials are enough to put off your average player (it took me about four hours to learn how to drop bombs!). However, once you get into it (i.e. scour the internet for guides on how to play it), it's a game that's rewarding and a great simulator of WWII air combat.

If you put the effort in, you'll get out an equal reward.

Although a little long in the tooth, this is a fine flight simulator and crams in a lot of detail and a great campaign system for a very reasonable price.
