We have our first look at a Flying Circus Vol 2 aircraft in the form of the Nieuport 28! The aircraft is in development and on its way towards being made a flyable type in a future patch. We also got a look at the 3D model for U.S. paratroopers coming for IL-2: Battle of Normandy.
Nieuport 28 surfaces
It’s our first look at an aircraft for Flying Circus Vol 2 and it looks like it’s already nearly complete.
This is the Nieuport N.28, a development in the famous series of Nieuport bi-plane fighters from WWI. When it became clear that the Nieuport N.17 was increasingly falling behind versus the newest German fighters coming onto the front lines, the French aircraft maker created this new version. With the SPAD XIII already fulfilling the requirements of the French squadrons on the frontlines, the N.28 was considered surplus and was offered instead to the American Expeditionary Force which had a desperate need for new fighters.
1CGS is building this aircraft together with Ugra Media and are currently in the process of working on the damage model and adding the new dynamic vehicle damage technology to the aircraft. It already has the new tactical codes present on the aircraft which is exciting!
Paratroopers for Normandy
This week we also get our first look at the 3D model for the U.S. Army paratrooper. These soldiers were an essential part of the Normandy invasion and will be deployable from the C-47 AI aircraft.
Makes me want the C-47 to become a flyable type just a little bit more…
