I haven’t posted about it until now but I wanted to draw peoples attention towards a promising Scripted Campaign coming to IL-2: Battle of Kuban in the future. Gambit21’s ‘Havoc Over the Caucasus’ is an A-20B campaign that looks to be making its way towards an official release through the IL-2 store in the future. Let’s have a quick look!
The stage for this campaign is set a little earlier than we’re used to on the Kuban map with the battles of 1942 set deeper into the Caucasus mountain range along the Black Sea coast.
Gambit’s campaign appears to feature highly detailed airbases and target areas with a lot of object details and AI scripting.
According to the development updates on this thread on the IL-2 forum, the campaign will feature mostly low level interdiction type missions that the A-20B is more than capable of carrying out.
The aircraft’s twin .50cal machine guns mounted forward and its assortment of small and large bombs give this bomber plenty of ability down low. Especially when combined with the A-20s superb agility and speed.
Back in March, Gambit was approximately 75% complete on a campaign that may stretch out towards 18 missions. Details will surely be coming in the near future so keep an eye on this campaign for sure. I’m definitely excited about it!
