Great Battles series launches two significant features in the latest 4.707 version of the IL-2 series. Packed in this new update is the release of the Me410 for IL-2: Battle of Normandy along with a new Custom Input Profile across the whole of the series. Let’s have a look!
Me410, custom profiles
The first big update in 4.707 is the launch of the last flyable airplane for the IL-2: Battle of Normandy series. The Messerschmidt Me410 is a twin engine, multi-role fighter that saw service in 1943, 1944 and sparingly after that. Although it was overshadowed by its predecessor, the Bf110, the Me410 nonetheless brings some very interesting features such as its unique rear turret gunner position, its integrated bomb bay with swappable bomb and gun pods including the massive BK-5 cannon firing a 50mm anti-aircraft gun meant to destroy bombers.
I’m looking forward to spending some time with this unique and interesting aircraft. It’s so rarely featured in other WWII sims so having it is a rare opportunity.
The other headline features is the addition of Custom Input Profiles. This does two things, first it let’s you create custom profiles of hardware inputs which can be used globally or assigned to a specific airplane. It can also do the same thing with custom pit inputs. If you find a particular airplane is not flying right with your controllers, you can now create a pitch profile specific to that plane. This is particularly valuable to airplanes like the Fokker Dr. I which did not have the sprung sticks that we typically have sitting on our desks.
