Join the Battle of Normandy in new air war DLC for IL-2 Sturmovik

From Press Release:

The Battle of Normandy took place nearly 80 years ago, and though it took us not quite as long  (3+ years) to finish it, the latest installment of the next-gen military flight sim IL-2 Sturmovik: Great Battles is now available on Steam.

Developed by 1C Game Studios, IL-2 Sturmovik: The Battle of Normandy is a military flight sim dedicated the aerial engagements between the U.S. Army Air Force, Royal Air Force, and the Luftwaffe in the skies over the Normandy and Calais regions of France before and after the Jun 6th, 1944, Allied invasion.

The Battle of Normandy will explore and recreate the military drama as the Allies use airpower to secure the invasion beachhead and force a breakout to march towards Paris and Germany itself. Airpower played a crucial role in this battle and the Luftwaffe’s increasingly desperate struggle to stem the Allied air offensive of fighters, attackers, and bombers will pose an entertaining challenge for any seasoned virtual pilot.


IL-2 Sturmovik: The Battle of Normandy comes in both a Premium Edition with two collector planes and the Standard Edition. Both the base game (Battle of Stalingrad) and the new one (Battle of Normandy) have special time-limited release offers: Battle of Stalingrad: 85% off – $7.49 & Battle of Normandy: 17% off – $49.79.

IL-2 Sturmovik: The Battle of Normandy contains eight famous aircraft you can take into virtual combat alone or with friends and comes with a map of the Normandy theater that includes a portion of southern England and northwest France. Taken from satellite data, the accurately reproduced topography reflects the battleground as it was in mid-1944 both pre and post invasion.

The Battle of Normandy offers franchise new ships, ground vehicles, buildings, coastal defenses, V-1 buzzbombs and their launch positions, plus dozens of new aircraft paint schemes, and much more.
