About

Il-2 1946 includes all of the original IL-2 series content: IL-2 Sturmovik™: Forgotten Battles, Ace Expansion Pack, Pacific Fighters™ and alternate histry campaigns of year 1946. What was years ago began as a one-aircraft study sim is now an astonishing anthology, with a whopping 229 flyable aircraft and over 300 aircraft total!

The game has been updated to the latest version 4.12.2. This community made update includes widescreen support with correct FOV, many new planes, maps and scenarios.

  • New Aircraft: 32 new flyable fighters and bombers, and four new AI aircraft!
  • New Maps: Large new historical maps of the Kiev region; a map of Manchuria focusing on a border region between USSR, China and Japanese-occupied Korea; a large bonus Burma map; and an online Khalkin Gol / Nomonhan map.
  • New Campaigns: Nine new campaigns with nearly 200 missions add incredible realism and attention to detail. There are detailed careers for fighter and bomber pilots, for the German, Soviet, and Japanese air forces, offering such varied objectives as flying jet bombers over occupied Europe, to intercepting American B-29 Super fortresses over Iwo Jima and Japanese home islands!
  • Alternate History: Three of the nine campaigns are a departure into alternate history, focusing on hypothetical battles between the Soviet Union and Germany in the year 1946, while WWII still rages on.
  • Nearly 1,000 new Paint schemes: The new planes, as well as many of the other ones in the series, come with a host of historical paint schemes, showing many of the individual aircraft or squadrons that served in WWII.

IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 reviews and comments

I once played it ( 2 years ago ). Nobody is mentioning here, that it gets only bit better, after you try to install those BAT mods. After that, you are in 20th century gamemod, ( no not 21 ). but pray to all you can pray to, that you will get it work, with those BAT mods. i tried it this year again, got BSoD, break downs, constant crashes aso aso... and the guy who moderates the forum on this BAT side seems to have a huge problem with treating others in a social way. can i recommend this " game " ? NO, not like it is... and until they don t manage to get this game look nice without downloading additional 23 GB of stuff of unkown " programmers " i will not touch it... a clear thumbs down...

you liked to do "viiiuuuu" in the sky? This game is not surrounded by a gigantic graphic level, but I guarantee you that its bright atmosphere will surprise you. A career mode that creates random missions, a little imagination and you can decide that such a pilot is your friend of beuveri, and that despite the order to return to the base and your leaking oil, you would get rid of the "bandit at its 6" (the mission s will be quiet, as planned, or disastrous... randomly) If you ever preferred pure action, pre-made missions exist (as well as a mission creator) and kilo... tons of aircraft from the second world war. All coated with the similator's cutomisation. We will pass an ACE combat (arcade) to a fligth Simulator (very advanced simulation) in some clicks.

VERY GOOD SIMULATION OF AERIAL COMBAT. TO START THE GRAPHICS ARE OLD BUT IT IS NOT UGLY TO DIE BUT THAT SAYS OLD GRAPHSIME IMPROVES THE ACCESIBILITER OF THE GAME BECAUSE EASIER TO ROTATE. POSITIVE POINT IS FOR NOW THE STURMOVIK IL2 WITH THE MOST PILOTABLE AIRPLANE. THERE IS A SOLO CAMPAIGN TO DO ACCORDING TO THE COUNTRIES WITH OTHER MODE OF JEUX.SI YOU ARE NOT VERY GOOD AT PILOTING YOU CAN EITHER INCREASE OR DECREASE THE DIFFICULTY BUT NOT IN THE MODE CAMPAGNE.SI YOU HAVE A LONG WAY TO HAVE TO PRESS $ TO ACCELER AND ^ FOR RALEN TIME SHOOTING. ONE CAN GO IN THE PLACE OF THE GUNNER OF THE AIRPLANE IN VIEW FIRST PERSON IS TO SAY OUR VISION FOR ALL PLANES WITH TAIL OR COTER OR BEFORE. THE AIRCRAFT ARE COMPLETELY DESTRUCTIBLE BECAUSE THE STURMOVIK IL2 ARE REALIST THEY ARE NOT ARCADE. FOR THISAIN THE GRAPHICS WILL BE A DEFAULT. ANOTHER DEFAULT AND THAT THE GAME IS HARD BECAUSE SOMEONE CAN QUICKLY DESTROY THE AIRPLANE ESPECIALLY WITH CARTRIDGES OF 20 MM AND PLUS.PS IT IS POSSIBLE TO PLAY WITH THE ARROWS OF THE KEYBOARD TO STEER THE AIRPLANE AND ENTERS FOR THE SMALL MITRALLETE AND RETURN FOR THE BIG MITRALLETE. ALSO I PLAY IT WITH WINDOWS 10 AN I5 PROCESSOR AND A GTX 950 AND I'M NO PROBLEM I JUST NEEDED TO METER SCALING OF PPP ELEVER IN APPLICATION IF YOU AVER TO DO IT YOU GO IN YOUR LIBRARY STEAM YOU MADE RIGHT CLICK ON IL2 1946 PROPERTY ETER BROWSE THE LOCAL FILES YOU WANT TO SEE AN APPLICATION THAT IS CALLED IL2FB YOU RIGHT CLICK PROPRIETER COMPATIBILIER MODIFY THE PARMAETRE PPP ELEVE REPLACE THE SCALING DPI HIGH IN APPLICATION AND NOT METER SYSTEM BECAUSE ITS MAKES THE WINDOW OF THE GAMES TO THE LEFT OF YOUR SCREEN AND IN SMALL RESOLUTION.
