IL2 Sturmovik Addon 'Operation Barbarossa'

by Rainier on Sept. 28, 2002 @ 12:15 a.m. PDT

At 04.15am on 22nd June 1941 German bombers attacked Soviet airfields with devastating effect and the invasion of Russia, codenamed Operation Barbarossa, had begun. After four years of bitter fighting that included infamous battles like Kursk and Stalingrad, the Russians arrived at Berlin. Now you can join the Luftwaffe in this gruelling campaign for IL2 and take part in hundreds of historically accurate missions that take you from the heady victories in the Kuban Peninsula, through the bitter winters and finally to fight for your very existence at the gates of your capital.
  • Choose to fly the campaign in an Me 109 or Fw 190 with over 60 custom aircraft repaints included for flying in co-op mode.
  • Fly 390 missions from the campaign in single-player mode. You can also take part in an extra 28 Luftwaffe or 34 Russian VVD missions, plus there’s another 20 available in multiplayer mode for online flyers.
  • Tackle the enemy head to head in the air or mount ground-attacks against authentic targets in multiplayer mode for online flyers with missions designed for up to 16 players!
