A new IL-2 series developer diary is out and this time we’re getting our first look at Sopwith Snipe and Siemens-Schuckert D.IV. These are Collector Planes intended for use with Flying Circus. Let’s have a look!
As the first World War ground to a close, new fighter designs were still being churned out at an impressive rate. Among those designs would be the Sopwith Snipe and the Siemens-Schuckert D.IV. Fast, well armed, and aimed at improving on past designs, these two should represent the best of what was possible in a WWI-era fighter design.
Now, we’re getting a really good look at what 1CGS and Ugra Media have been up to while building these aircraft. The Snipe is reportedly nearly finished on the exterior with the cockpit still underway. Meanwhile the Siemens-Schuckert D.IV is still in development but the 3D model looks like its coming along.
Here’s the Snipe.
And the Siemens-Schuckert D.IV looks good too.
