IL-2 Executive Producer Jason Williams posted four new screenshots today as part of a D-Day salute. They feature the upcoming B-26 AI model and it’s looking good. Let’s have a look.
D-Day and Operation Overlord
On the morning of June 6, 1944, Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy in what would be one of the largest amphibious operations in history. A joint American, British and Canadian force would land at beaches codenamed Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword.
In the air, Allied forces were given a new paint-job with alternating black and white stripes to make visual identification easier and thousands of aircraft would fly over the invasion site in support of the operation.
78-years later, we remember this historical moment and offer a salute.
With IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Normandy being focused around this operation it only makes sense for a small tribute and an opportunity to have a quick look at some new upcoming content. Four new screenshots showing off the AI-only B-26 Marauder for Battle of Normandy have been released. And here they are!
The aircraft is planned for a future content update and will be available as an AI bomber type. At the moment there are no confirmed plans for this to become a flyable type, however, a great many people want it to become one alongside the B-25D already in the series. And you can count me in that line – looks good.
In the meantime, we offer a salute to the occasion, a solemn remembrance of the occasion.
