Big news today! FC 2, complete with career mode is released. Moreover, they've confirmed FC 3! 🤩 

https://il2sturmovik.com/news/790/update-5101-fc-volii-spitfire-mkxive-free-typhoon-/

Other random takeaways I'm excited about:

  • FC 3 will complete the Western Front map, bringing 5 seasons to it: Summer, early Autumn, late Autumn / early Spring, Winter and Spring
  • FC 3 is scheduled to be released by the end of this year... pretty quick turnaround.
  • An additional pack of aircraft will be released next year, bringing all land-based aircraft (except the S-16 and Ilya Muromets) from ROF to FC.
  • With this update they included this nugget: Balloon operators launch flares when given a mission command MCU Command: Flare
  • Also added with this update: Updated the sounds of air explosions of medium and large caliber AA rounds; Added separate sounds of air explosions for the British QF13-pounder 6 cwt (76.2 mm) and the German Flak 77 L/27 AA guns

Looks like we are missing a couple of “key” aircraft?? 🤨

Also, 1C Games Studios and Ugra Media have entered into an agreement to develop the third part of the project - Flying Circus Vol. III.

It will include 8 aircraft:

  • German Albatros D.II fighter
  • German fighter Halberstadt D.II
  • French Nieuport 17.C1 fighter
  • French Nieuport 11.C1 fighter
  • French fighter Nieuport 17.C1 GBR adapted for British service
  • French Hanriot HD.1 fighter.
  • British two-seat reconnaissance aircraft R.E.8.
  • British two-seat medium bomber F.E.2b.

Yeah, the rest of the key aircraft are coming in a later pack:

  • An additional pack of aircraft will be released next year, bringing all land-based aircraft (except the S-16 and Ilya Muromets) from ROF to FC.

I suspect they withheld the ever-popular Pup, Roland, and Alb D.III for the later pack to increase demand. It’s tougher finding a market for early war stuff (sadly).
