Box Update


Recommended Posts



Dear friends,


The Sturmovik Team and Ugra-Media have completed the Sopwith Triplane which is the final aircraft planned for Flying Circus Vol.II. The new Western Front map is still in development.

The "Tripe" as it was famously called, has three beautiful wings! Each wing has its own ailerons making it quite maneuverable in battle with enough armament to allow its pilots to be confident in a dogfight with any adversary of the era. We think you will enjoy her! 








In addition to the new aircraft there are many changes and additions in this update that will improve your gameplay experience:


1. Sopwith Triplane is available to all owners of Flying Circus Vol.II;
