Posting some new images from the Dev Build of IL-2: Battle of Kuban today was an early Christmas present from Jason Williams, IL-2’s lead producer. The 1C Game Studios team is going to be off for the holidays for several days and while they take a well deserved break we get a chance to look at some new images of the A-20.
A festive message
Jason’s post mentioned about how busy things had been an apologised for correspondence being slower than normal. In my estimation its been an incredibly busy time for the team and completely understandable.
He also had a festive message for everyone.
I just wanted to say thank you for your support this year and I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! This time of year we take a bit of a holiday break, but we’ll be back at it with the new year.
The A-20 is ‘fun’
The word we’re hearing is that the A-20B for IL-2: Battle of Kuban is fun. I had no doubt at all in my mind as I was a huge fan of the A-20C and A-20G in Pacific Fighters and IL-2: 1946. Fast, agile, and capable of carrying a good bomb load, the A-20 was versatile and well suited to quick and messy multiplayer operations in the flight sim world.
I’m expecting this A-20B version for Kuban to be just as fun.
For the first time we’ve seen what the finished cockpit (or nearly finished) looks like in the A-20. It looks good. We also see Jason bombing a roadway and its also the first time we’ve seen the aircraft used in any sort of operations.
Check these out and then head over and read the full message from IL-2’s lead producer.
