In Dev Diary #180 we mentioned that to understand the real price and importance of the Allied victory, it is important to know the story of their enemies as well , so that DD was about Luftwaffe aces. Today we'll tell you about the Soviet pilots, who again and again took off in their fighter planes and stood up against the highest ranking aces in the world. In spite of all the experience and skill of their enemies, Soviet and other Allied pilots slowly, but inevitably turned the tide of the war and helped USSR and Allies to win.
The Stalingrad map was the first in our project. Time has passed and now, thanks to our lead programmer Sergey Vorsin, we have new technologies, instruments and methods that allow us to reach a new level of quality. In addition, the recent changes in the engine for almost four times visibility distance increase caused visible artifacts on maps that were most apparent on the Stalingrad map. So it was the time to re-visit and improve our first map. This wasn't planned initially, but we ought to find the time for this task.
