Feel the power of flying the AV8B Harrier II. A flight and naval combat simulator with mission planner and fully dynamic open ended campaign. CAP2 is a middle ground simulator, you won’t need to read a 300 page manual to get off the ground, nor will you be carrying dozens of missiles when you fire it up.

supersonic-fightFly into the danger zone in the cockpit of an F/A-18 Hornet, defend the San Francisco skies, and let the death-defying flights take your breath away in stunning optional VR.

Red Chain Games are delighted to announce that Supersonic Fight will be landing on Steam and Steam VR in 2024.

The announcement comes with an all-new action-packed trailer, which showcases the fast-paced, death-defying flights that await pilots in the new combat flight simulator. Hop into the cockpit, choose and customise your aircraft, from the F/A-18C Hornet to Air Force One, and take to the skies with your squadron to defend the San Francisco Bay area.

When the game launches next year, players will be able to put their piloting and combat skills to the test with challenging story missions in single player, survive deadly dogfights and scenarios in multiplayer or immerse themselves in thrilling combat missions in optional VR – all to an electrifying Top Gun-inspired soundtrack from talented artist D4XX.

I wanted to recreate the feeling that I remember when I first played Bob Dinnerman’s “F/A-18 Interceptor” on the Amiga, and after decades of experience and the power of modern gaming PCs, I believe I can do it justice and, hopefully, give others the same experience I had,” said Richard Smith, co-founder of Red Chain Games.

Supersonic Fight will be available on Steam and Steam VR in 2024.

More game information is available on the Supersonic Fight Steam Page.

il-2-sturmovik-tank-crewToday, 1C Game Studios released the Churchill update for their WWII tank simulator IL-2 Sturmovik: Tank Crew – Clash of Prokhorovka, which is just one part of the Great Battles series for IL-2 Sturmovik. The Churchill update includes the release of the Churchill Mark IV battle tank which was used in WWII and a lot more which you can read about here.

In IL-2 Sturmovik: Tank Crew, players operate some of WWII’s greatest battle tanks in close quarters ground combat missions during the Battle of Kursk. The game can be enjoyed as either a stand-alone product or integrated with other Great Battles titles such as Battle of Stalingrad, Battle of Moscow, Battle of Kuban and Battle of Bodenplatte to create a massive WWII air and ground combat simulation.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Tank Crew allows players to command a tank crew in single and multiplayer environments and battle enemies in highly-detailed intense missions with grueling combat where maneuverability and exposing tank vulnerabilities is vital to surviving and winning.

The Churchill Infantry Tank

One of the heaviest Allied tanks of the war, the Churchill entered the war during the Dieppe Raid in France in August 1942. It saw action in North Africa, Italy, and on the Eastern Front. The versatile chassis design was used as the basis for many specialized vehicles throughout the war.

The Churchill Mark IV was the most numerous of the series, with 1,622 produced. Virtually identical to the Churchill Mark III, the main difference being a cheaper and better-protected cast turret. A Bedford 12-cylinder gasoline engine powered the tank and capable of 350 horsepower. The tank’s top speed was around 24 km/h (15 mph), but Soviet tests claimed that a Churchill Mark III reached 28 km/h (17 mph). The main armament of the Churchill Mark IV was the Ordnance Quick-Firing (QF) 6-pounder gun of 57mm caliber. The secondary armament consisted of one coaxial 7.92 mm Besa machine gun mounted in the turret, second Besa machine gun fitted in the hull and 2-inch mortar in the turret roof. The model featured in the sim is produced by the Leyland factory and has Mk.V gun with a 50-caliber long barrel.

In the game, the Churchill Mark IV represents tanks used in the battle of Kursk and can be used in both single and multiplayer scenarios but we recommend the Tank Crew Prokhorovka map since it’s designed for ground engagements and has higher landscape detail than the other maps designed for aerial battles.

IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Normandy is now available for Windows on Steam, offering the latest installment in this combat flight simulator from 1C Game Studios. Air combat is not the typical focus when recreating World War II’s pivotal invasion of Normandy, and the battle involved none of the game’s titular Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik aircraft, but the game is focused on realism nonetheless. This can be seen in the launch trailer and the description:

IL-2 Sturmovik: The Battle of Normandy contains eight famous aircraft you can take into virtual combat alone or with friends and comes with a map of the Normandy theater that includes a portion of southern England and northwest France. Taken from satellite data, the accurately reproduced topography reflects the battleground as it was in mid-1944 both pre and post invasion.

Complete with new mission types and airfield types – bringing the total amount to 100 airfields with historically accurate layouts. The Battle of Normandy offers franchise new ships, ground vehicles, buildings, coastal defenses, V-1 buzzbombs and their launch positions, plus dozens of new aircraft paint schemes, and much more.

Many missions got a new graphical treatment, be it old or new ones. Visual effects were polished to look even better, and lighting setups in missions were adjusted for a better atmosphere. We focused also on the experience outside of the game. The great news is that Comanche is now playable in English, French, German, Spanish, Polish, Czech, Russian, and Chinese. The community can now beat all achievements (on Steam, MSFT, GOG) or collect every trading card (Steam only).
