We’ve nearly made it to the end of 2020 and its time to review the past 12-months of IL-2 Sturmovik. This is a summary some of the highlights of the work coming from 1C Game Studios and Team Fusion Simulations over the last year with the two branches of the IL-2 Sturmovik series. Let’s get…

DCS World 2020 year in review

This year has not been the year that we expected and for fans of DCS World it has been one with its share of ups and downs. As fans of the series we’ve seen some impressive releases, flawed patches, and a regrouping and reorganizing of the series update schedule. There were also a few new…

The best integrated DCS World experience you can have

Every few weeks I see someone ask about what aircraft module and scenery package they should buy for DCS World. Ready to make the jump to full fidelity combat flight sim, many are uncertain on which module they should buy. In the decision making process, the type of aircraft, the way they want to fly,…

A second thought on IL-2’s mobile AAA vehicles
