La-7 teased by OctopusG

DCS, P3D and MSFS developer OctopusG has teased their next product after a successful launch of the DCS: I-16 by showing off an early work in progress 3D model of the late-war Russian La-7 fighter. There’s not much to go on right now but let’s have a look!

Teasing the late war Lavochkin

Teaser images posted to the OctopusG Facebook page come labeled with just a single character: “7.”

OctopusG has a good reputation among DCS World fans for the excellent I-16 that was done for that sim. The only problem with the aircraft is frankly not the aircraft’s fault at all but rather the company that it keeps – mostly late war WWII aircraft. Enter the La-7! We don’t know if its intended for DCS World, but, if so, it would offer a more competitive option.

OctopusG’s Facebook page profile says that they are a P3D and MSFS developer as well and so its unclear at this point where this might go. It’s possible too that they will follow in the footsteps of IndiaFoxTecho and release to Flight Simulator and DCS.

Have a look at the screenshots released so far.

Keep an eye on their Facebook page for follow-up information.

    I was so hoping that OctopusG would work on an opponent for the I-16 was their next project. Something like the Finnish version of the Buffalo would have been great. I understand if he is Russian and wants to work on aircraft for the Home Team as it were but I had hoped for something else.

    An early war opponent would have been great as well. I am glad to see (assuming DCS), there is a Soviet warbird in the works that would be a good match up against the Luftwaffe in game already. I was thinking a Yak-3, but this is great as well.
