I've been so deep in FB and CAD missions I haven't stopped by for a while. I was wondering if CrazyIvan or Oleg could say if there is any official web presence for the next project yet? Just some place to check to get announcements and updates without having to ask this all over again.. On 1C's web site its not even listed as in production, were they producing it or even developing it?

In very old development updates, they showed some BoB pictures. It is very much in progress, and looking very nice.

I don't think those dev updates are still available, but you can see the pictures in my sig.

Oleg says they will resume making dev updates soon. I can't wait to see how it is coming along!

I don't remember the Wellington bomber having a belly turret? Especially that strange one .. it looks like a JU86 turret?

Yeah, it had a ventral, retractable 'dustbin' style turret, that was rather quickly deleted when it was realised that it was in essence 2000lbs pounds of equipment and another gunner that actually increased the vulnerability of the Wellington and complicated prodction.

It was fitted to the Mk I and then deleted in favour beam mounted Vickers K guns (which were then rather quickly gotten rid of themselves).

Airwarfare.com also has a feature list (http://www.airwarfare.com/Sims/IL2BOB/index.htm).

Best parts: more aircraft in the air and realistic propwash!
