I took some screenshots of some flying around with the IL-2:Forgotten Battles' newest version, 1.2 (which I am beta testing). It Includes flyable: P-51D Mustang, A6M5a Zero, and Ki-84Ia. Non-flyable AI planes are B-17G and C-47.

I love putting the game in slow motion and just ripping up pe-8s with a fw-190 and seeing the crew bail out... Also have the pe-8 carry a 5,000 bomb.. That bomb goes boom!

Cool, I didn't know another patch was being made. That is awesome.

Here are some screens that I took from my german bf109 and he-111 campaigns:

I was cycling through targets when watching a replay and noticed some russians on a bombing mission at an airfield, the flak killed all 4 bombers, this was the last one. Direct hit to the engine.

Cool screenshot of my bf109 group owning russians in formation.

Lone IL-2 intercepting my He-111 group. Notice my green tracer fire, I almost hit him :).

Lone IL-2 finally destroys me.

I finally learned the basics of IL-2 FB and was flying the He-111 on a quick mission where I had to torpedo some ships in the Black Sea, well I quickly did and pulled out to fly back to base when I noticed all of the other bombers were dead and I did a quick look back to see I had three Russian fighters(La-7 maybe...)on me! I quickly started doing some maneuvers in the bomber to give my gunners better targets and the first two fighters ripped my rudder to shreds and hit one of my engines good(I already had a fuel leak and multiple other small damages including on my instruments from FLAK). Well about ten minutes later after my gunners shotting down a fighter the other two fled leaving me with bullets riddled up and down me and a dead gunner. Then I was halfway home when my plane abruptly shook and then I began falling. I do not know what caused it but I quickly tryed to slow myself down, lowered the flaps, and attempted to lower the gears(they were jammed apparently) to brace for a crash landing. I hit the ground at a pretty fast speed throwing the plane on its nose then over in a flip to land on its belly!! I quickly hit the bail out and my guy jumped out doing his usual run away from the plane and the second he jumps out the plane explodes RIGHT BEHIND MY GUY!! I mean this was a one of a time movie action shot!

Anyways past that, how do you complete missions, I fly until it says mission completed then I land and wait forever and it doesn't say I won or whatever.(I am such a n00b, only one bomber kill against a JU-52 I think)...

That would be your que to press esc and end mission :). I think the stalingrad campaign part for the bf109 are definitely some of these best fighter battles in IL-2:FB. My entire fighter squad consists of mostly aces that survived through many missions with me.

I also like how, in a position as a german pilot, that there is a sense of desperation as the front around stalingrad is being surrounded while my squad has taken heavy losses in the skies, leading up to stalingrad.
