Blue Byte announces IL-2 Sturmovik

German publisher Blue Byte has announced that they have signed a contract for their first flight sim, "IL-2 Sturmovik". The game will let you fly seventeen different planes, including the Soviet IL-2 of the title, and features six historical campaigns set during the war on the eastern front from 1941 to 1945. This is certainly the first World War Two flight sim that I can remember which focuses on Soviet planes, and it should certainly give an interesting new spin on the conflict. Check the press release for the full story.
