Key Features
realistic physics, damage, and physiology

Advanced physics and graphics engines: realistic aerodynamics modeled to fly just like their real-life counterparts.

Detailed damage model not only changes the visual but also affects handling, making an aerial dogfight or ground engagement interesting and unpredictable.

Eye-catching cockpits with working instruments look especially stunning and true-to-life in Virtual Reality mode.

Physiological modeling of pilot fatigue accumulation after active maneuvers in combat.

historically accurate environment

Unlike the competition, which uses modern geodata, all our maps are based on extensive research using maps and documents from the period.

The maps spawn for hundreds of thousands of square kilometers of accurately recreated terrain including such locations as Stalingrad, Caen, Amsterdam, Moscow, Antwerp, Cherbourg, Arnhem, Eindhoven, Rzhev, Calais, Cologne, Brussels, Kerch, Düsseldorf, Kalinin, Nijmegen, Le Havre, Dortmund, Liege, Portsmouth, Arras and many others.

Environmental Diversity: Dynamic day/night cycles, multiple seasons, and a wide range of weather types affect aircraft behavior and air combat.

Wide range of weapons and equipment. Choose ammunition based on target type.

multiplayer and multi-crew

Invite your friends to your crew - they can become a gunner in a multi-seater aircraft or a commander, driver, gunner, and machine gunner (radio operator) in a combat vehicle.

Classic multiplayer with dedicated player-controlled servers with your favorite settings for team battles, dogfight duels, and online Coop.

Unlike other simulations, AI pilots must perform the same maneuvers to fly their aircraft, leveling the playing field between man and machine.

Battlefield simulation is not limited to aerial warfare: there are tanks, SPGs, and even AAA vehicles, complete with detailed interiors, instruments, and gun sights that function just like the real thing.

part of a larger war

Interconnected modules. Fight in the major aerial battles from 1916 to 1945.

Historically accurate pilot career mode: serve in a fighter, bomber, or attack squadron. Work your way from rookie to squadron commander, earning promotions, historical medals, and other awards.

The flexible Quick Mission mode allows you to create your own custom combat scenario in just a few clicks - from a simple free flight to a scenario with realistic objectives and opponents.

Dozens of available historical campaigns and scenarios cover both World Wars from 1917 to 1945.

The Mission Editor tool allows you to create your own scenarios of any complexity for single and multiplayer.


Despite very complex modeling, the player does not need to memorize and repeat routine operations as required in reality.

Adjustable difficulty allows everyone to customize the sim to their taste and ability.

It is possible to fly an aircraft using either a joystick, which allows for greater control or a mouse while maintaining the same high level of fidelity of our flight models.

Various Virtual Reality HMDs are supported via SteamVR.

The Flight Recording System allows you to record whatever happens in the virtual skies.

Your personal aviation museum is open 24/7.
