IL-2 STURMOVIK, DESERT WINGS – TOBRUK is an immersive, realistic and challenging combat flight simulation set over the sands of the North Africa campaign in WWII. Experience what it was like to fly and fight in Messerschmitts, Macchis, Kittyhawks and Spitfires during the Desert War. Dogfight high over the endless dunes and ancient sandstone of the North African desert for control of the strategic town of Tobruk on the Mediterranean coast. Fly right on the deck and support the ground troops and armored thrusts as the Allies take on the Afrika Corps and their legendary Panzers. Intercept enemy shipping and support allied convoys bringing needed supplies to the parched desert theater. Never before has there been such a detailed and beautiful North Africa themed combat flight simulation. Desert Wings gives a unique and immersive aerial combat experience unlike any other!

In this exciting new IL-2 STURMOVIK: CLIFFS OF DOVER - BLITZ add-On, you can fly with the Regia Aeronautica, the Luftwaffe or the Royal Air Force. Experience everything from 1940 biplane dogfights between Gladiators and CR-42's to clashes between sleek Macchis and rugged Kittyhawks in 1941-42. Fly stubby Martlets, sturdy Hurricanes and the graceful Spitfire in combat against deadly Messerschmitts as they battle over this far-flung part of the globe. Desert Wings allows fighter jocks of all skill levels the opportunity to fully challenge themselves in the historically based campaign.

Twin-engine bomber fans also have a wide choice of new aircraft to master - from level bombers to torpedo planes, including multiple versions of the Wellington, new models of Heinkel He-111 and the versatile Ju-88. Updated versions of the deadly Beaufighter heavy fighter are also included as well as it’s Luftwaffe counterpart, the Ju-88C, making its debut in four brutally effective variants.

A new map, a new ocean, new aircraft, vehicles and ships, what's not to like?

While a big shift in theatres from England and France, and all that's in between, The Desert War is a great theatre for dogfights and particularly bombing. In fact, if you don't like bombing, that's half the DLC gone right there. Dogfighting, for me is great over the desert, especially when a ground battle is under way, or at sea, trying to save a convoy from the plentiful and experienced German and classic Italian bombers and torpedo bombers. Bomb Alley, as the passage into Tobruk was well known earns it's name in this sim and joining the Scrap Iron Flotilla (the Aussie destroyers) in getting the fleet into safe harbour is exciting. Models are beautiful, as always, with many variants and new roles for old birds (torpedoes for He-111's for example), but that's also part of the problem. Variants. If you aren't into the minutiae of variants of established aircraft, you're missing half the toy box. New aircraft are welcome, like the P-40 and tropical variants of the Spitfire and Hurricane are more than welcome, as the desert variant of these fighters were my favourites, but if you are expecting loads of new planes as with "IL-2: Great Battles", forget it.. You also have the Italians, missing the Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 Sparviero (Italian for sparrowhawk) Torpedo bomber that makes me scratch my head. It was the most utilised Italian bomber in theatre, and it's missing. What gives? Missing also is the lack of a reward system, promotions, and medals that the first "IL-2: Sturmovik" had for its scripted campaigns, and these are all scripted campaigns. You get a half dozen, but they are empty, soulless and in the end pointless with no progression. It's the problem "IL-2: CloD" had but it should have been fixed. If you're into ground vehicles, then that is the meat and gravy of the The Desert War, where pathetic British tanks such as Stuarts ("Honeys"), Cruisers and Crusaders go up against the German PKZ. III and IV (short barrel) then you'll be scratching your head as to why the British stuck to 2 pounder weapons, fighting against 75 and 88mm German weaponry. Even the vaunted Matilda II, with it's much heavier armour still only had a 2 pounder pea shooter that simply bounced off German armour. Makes for gripping, if painful clashes. Ultimately the map is well done,very detailed, the ships are beautifully rendered in a bright blue Mediterranean, where a lot of the fighting will take place,and dogfights at dawn and dusk, with desert storms raging below, or...
