If a lack of training missions was hindering your enjoyment for the IL-2: Great Battles Series, there may now be an answer to that particular problem. A new campaign series promises to walk players through the basics and get them started with flying in IL-2. Here are the details!
Bf109 first, more types to come later!
Mission builder Utopioneer has released the first in what are likely to be multiple mini-campaigns for the IL-2: Great Battles Series offering tutorials and walkthroughs for the aircraft of choice.
The first iteration of this has support for IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad’s Bf109G-2 and includes the following missions:
- Mission 1 – Basic flight through waypoints
- Mission 2 – Take-off
- Mission 3 – Landing
- Mission 4 – Shoot down a bomber
- Mission 5 – Dogfight
- Mission 6 – Taxi
Although this first outing is centered around the Bf109G-2, Utopioneer is planning to release a follow up training campaign for the LaGG-3. I’ve also learned in talking to him that he hopes to be able to expand the series much further covering a wide variety of aircraft in the series.
For new players and veterans looking to brush up on their skills, this series of training campaigns might just be what you were looking for. Check out the IL-2 official forum post and download version 1 of Utopioneer’s Flight School Campaigns for the Bf109G-2.
