The Yak-1B arrives with update 2.005

IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad/Moscow has received its latest update in the form of version 2.005 which should automatically update the next time you start the launcher. With it comes a small but important selection of fixes and the much anticipated Yak-1B.


For the full list of updates, you should check with the official posting. Here are a few highlights for me:

  • Yak-1b series 127 added. All players who purchased it can fly it while any player could select it as an AI ally or foe. It will be added to Battle of Kuban campaign when it is released
  • Bf 109 E-7 skins corrected by the community member I./ZG1_Panzerbar (thank you!)
  • Bf 109 G-2 skins corrected by the community member I./ZG1_Panzerbar (thank you again!)
  • After additional research and charts and photographs comparison, MiG-3 kinematics were corrected (turn angle increased, shock strut in released position is closer to vertical), resulting in somewhat tighter turn radius during taxiing
  • Thanks to the new document submitted by Italian community (grazie!) MC.202 gun sight was corrected

For me the patch is still downloading but once I’ve had a chance to fly the Yak-1B a little bit and get a sense of this aircraft I will do a full write-up on my impressions.

In the meantime, watch a short video showing some fantastic aerobatics performed on the Yak-1B that was also released today as part of the update. Definitely worth a watch!
