Today is the day that many have long been waiting for – it’s the release of IL-2 Sturmovik: Desert Wings – Tobruk launches today! Here are all of the details!

Get ready for Desert Wings

The newest sim on the block is out and its Desert Wings – TOBRUK which features a unique theatre and an impressive collection of aircraft from the famous Bf109F and Spitfire V to the Cr.42, Mc.202, P-40 Tomahawk, He111, and the Wellington bomber.

Here’s some of the key features:

  • 40 new flyable aircraft types and variants
  • 25 new tank, artillery and vehicle types added as well as variants from the Cliffs of Dover series with desert modifications
  • 15 new ships including British and Italian types
  • 100 players and dozens of AI aircraft online simultaneously
  • 24 Quick Missions playable with any aircraft
  • 7 long form Campaigns based on historical Squadron experiences
  • 14 single missions as well as two co-op missions playable both via multiplayer or single player

And no major release should go without a video. So here’s the official launch video!

Available now

IL-2 Sturmovik: Desert Wings – Tobruk is available now on the Steam Store and on the official IL-2 website store. Either way you’ll need a Steam account as the Cliffs of Dover series is built to use the Steam store system and as this is a DLC package for the original IL-2: Cliffs of Dover you’ll also need to own that to play Desert Wings.

    Torpedo runs are my favourite missions, though difficult.
    Probably have checked out only 50% of the aircraft and new features.

      Glad you’re enjoying it! We’re you coming from Cliffs of Dover preciously or is this your first time with this sim?

        Coming from Cliffs previously. I’ve had it since the stock CloD release, and It’s been amazing to experience firsthand just how far they’ve brought this sim since then. Blitz made things a lot better, but it’s nothing close to the improvements I’ve seen in Tobruk so far!

        Last night I intended to try as much new content as possible, but I didn’t get as far as I had planned. It turns out flying the Hurri IID on the Ground Attack Quick Mission is about as much fun as I’ve had in a sim in…quite some time.

        This is a good ‘un.
