The Вattle of Stalingrad was one of the decisive events of World War II and there is still a lot of interest in it. New historical research and data from archives allow us to continue to reveal little-known, but important events and facts. The Blazing Steppe campaign, released in 2017, told the story of Soviet fighters in August-September 1942, but this time we invite you to experience the battle from the German side.
We are proud to announce a new historical campaign - "Fortress on the Volga" for IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad. We are now accepting Pre-Orders with a 20% pre-order discount at just $7.99! The campaign is scheduled to be released later this month.
The campaign is set during the peak of fighting between the Red Army Air Force and the Luftwaffe during Autumn 1942 in the skies above Stalingrad. Continuous German ground assaults on the destroyed city were met with ever more powerful Soviet counterstrikes. The fight for air superiority was just as furious and dangerous. You'll be the deputy Staffel commander in I./JG 52 that has been redirected to Stalingrad from the central part of the Eastern front.
Although a completely independent campaign, "Fortress on the Volga" continues to tell the story of a German pilot that began in our "Ten Days of Autumn" campaign.
All missions are based on historical events and contain a number of additions and innovations compared to the previous Scripted Campaigns:
