IL-2 devs show off Tempest, FW190A-3 4K, new FC cockpits

For this week’s IL-2 Developer Diary we’re getting a look at all kinds of great new content. It’s our first look at the fully textured and in-engine Hawker Tempest Mark V for IL-2: Battle of Bodenplatte and the aircraft looks spectacular. Speaking of spectacular, we’re also getting our first look at new 4K textures for the FW190A-3 and cockpit images for the Halberstadt CL.II and Bristol Fighter F.2B. And there’s a new trailer for IL-2: Battle of Moscow just to wrap things up!

Tempest first look

It’s our first look at the Tempest Mark V in-engine, fully textured, and I’m overjoyed at how good it looks. Last week we saw the un-textured cockpit and this week we’re getting a good look at the fully textured exterior.

The Tempest is going to make a splash in the IL-2 world with its low and medium altitude performance, excellent visibility, and powerful armament. Best guess is that it will arrive sometime early this fall.

New 4K textures for FW190A-3

Last week we saw the Bf109G-14 with all new 4K textures and this week we’re seeing one of the older models in the series – the FW190A-3 getting the 4K texture treatment. This once again comes courtesy of Martin =ICDP= Catney.

Cockpits for the Halberstadt CL.II and Bristol Fighter F.2B

The last two aircraft for the Flying Circus Vol 1 project are looking ready to go as the cockpits for both the Halberstadt CL.II and Bristol Fighter F.2B have now been revealed. What is now an expected level of quality from 1CGS and their partners at Ugra Media is on full display here.

New trailer for IL-2: Battle of Moscow

=HH=Pauk’s latest trailer creation is a follow on to the IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad trailer he did several weeks ago. This new trailer shows off Battle of Moscow and each of the aircraft included as part of the project. Check it out!

Interior for Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G

New screenshots are out for the Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.G for Tank Crew including the interior of the tank. Just last week we were looking at the finished exterior.

For the rest…

    Everything seems to be going very well. But where is my pony?!? 😉 The news is great and the Tempest gives hope that you could see it soon in Il-2. The Panzer IV looks finished and our 2 seater seem to only be able to take the final polish.
    I’m curious if the Tempest might even make it into this next patch, although I expect it almost more in August…

      The moment we have word that the Mustang is coming in the next patch you bet I’ll be writing about it 🙂

      There’s a lot that looks pretty close to finished. The Tempest V looks amazing. We still need to see its cockpit fully textured (and the Mustang’s for that matter). We know they are working on the flight models for all of them too.

      Should be really interesting to see how fast or slow the next few aircraft arrive.
