No mention of it anywhere. I wonder if the third party designer is still bound by the non-disclosure agreement if their work is not include in the official realase.

The cockpit may have been taking longer than expected who knows. There used to be a site that had a bunch of WIP models and cockpits (Il2center i think it was) but that's not up anymore to my knowledge.
But hopefully it'll be in the game as a suprise, or it'll be coming soon.
And always remember, as with the original Il-2 and Forgotten Battles, Oleg loves patching and Adding new planes, so dont count anything out until Oleg says so.

Cockpit is very similar to the Hawk 81/P-40/B/C/Tomahawk series, but from all reports, the FM is quite different; slower, much better in the climb and turn (RAF tests of Hawk 75s showed a marked advantage over the Hurri and Spit I in the horizontal), and poor dive for a US-built fighter.

USAAC units transitioning to the Tomahawk from the P-36 generally avoided operating the two types together, because their flight characteristics were so different.

The FM is probably just taking more work than expected.
