So far the series comprises nine CDs:
The original IL2 Shturmovik
IL2 Shturmovik Zabitie Shrazhenia (FB)
Asi v Neve (AEP)
Perl Harbor (PF).

There are also five add-ons available:
Vtoroi Front (BoE)
Dorogi Voini (no equivalent available in the West)
Operatsiya Barbarossa (Barbarossa)
Operatsiya Blau (Fall Blau)
Kurs na Okinawu (no equivalent available in the West)

A tenth CD is expected shortly, which is apparently 1C's version of Ostfront. See the 1C website, you can also see the box arts for all CD cases there.
Will post the titles in Cyrillic when I am back home (at work now and no Cyrillic available on my PC here).

With regard to installing, get your mate to grab a Russian XP Pro while there. I could not get the CDs to install on my English W200 Pro. However, according to SaqSon this should be possible by simply changing the regional settings to the correct zone- my Ukrainian CDs are meant for sale in the Ukraine only and probably have some sort of protection to make it difficult for them to install elsewhere. I can't comment as I simply made my PC dual-boot by installing a Russian XP Pro. If you do install on an English XP or 2000, expect at the very least to have to add the appropriate language support and Cyrillic font sets.

It may or may not run on your XP Pro- I assume SaqSon is correct when he says that altering the region will allow it to install. I simply have not tried this myself. However, if you want the Cyrillic text to be readable, you will have to install the appropriate font sets and language support.
As for Russian XP Pro with SP2, a pirate version cost me about $4 in Kiev. Only drawback is that you won't be able to download updates from Microsoft but since I only use it for running the Russian IL2 series anyway that is no great drawback.

Here is the list of Russian titles:

FB = "?бÑ"Ñ"Ñ"µ СÑ€?¶µн¸Ñ (Zabytye Srazheniya)
AEP = ÑÑ" ² нµбµ (Asy v nebe)
PF = ПµÑ€л ¥?Ñ€боÑ€ (Pearl Harbour)

All games are distributed in Russia in "Jewel case", which is just a CD case, wrapped in transparent film. All disks should have wide yellow stripe with 1C logo on the top of the title side.
Also, you can buy the official mission packs:

"оÑ€о³¸ ²о'нÑ" (Dorogi voyny = Roads of war)
Курс н? žº¸н?²Ñƒ (Kurs na Okinawu = Heading to Okinawa).

I think, you can find images of the disk titles at the 1C official site.

I guess, you won't need the IL-2 v.1.00 anyway.

To make cyrillic text in the progaram menues readable on English version of Windows XP, you need to turn on extended language support and add the Russian language to your windows installation.
To do that, open the Control panel, select "Regional settings and Languages" icon, in the appeared dialogue window select "Languages" tab, click "Details" button, in the next dialogue select "Advanced" tab, and turn on the checkbox "Extend support of advanced text services to all programs".
Then, again, in the "Regional settings and Languages" dialogue, select "Advanced" tab, in the "language for non-unicode progarams" section select "Russian" from the roll-down list.
In the "Code page conversion tables" section turn on checkboxes for various Russian codepages.
You can also add the Russian keyboard to be able to type in Russian, but it is not necessary.
You do not need to change the regional settings.

Note, that to do all the above, you will need the Windows XP installation disk under your hand.

PS I had to reinstall windows today, so this is just a description of what I did, and everything works fine. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I have English version of Windows and use Russian language programs, like IL-2 and other without any problem.

Only drawback is that you won't be able to download updates
Actually, you will be able to do that even with the pirated version. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif But, as you see, you don't need it, since you can use your legit English one.

My version of the latest release has as title "Курс н? žº¸н?²Ñƒ" or "Kurs na Okinawu"- has the title been changed recently?

Unfortunately, you will have to wait for them- they have not been released yet. If I understand the 1C website correctly, the latest addition will be released tomorrow, Nov. 11th. However, this is the 1C version of "Ostfront" developed by Ian Boys- a mission pack with skins etc, but no new aeroplanes. Its (translated) title is "Cold Arctic Skies" and while there your mate should grab it as well. You will probably be the first in Western Europe to have it! From memory its Russian title is "Kholodnoe Nevo Zapolyarnya".
As for the so desired three USSR-only add-ons, there is no definite news concerning their release dates as far as I know.

Installing is similar to installing the Western versions- FB, AEP, PF, then the mission packs "Dorogi Voini", "Vtoroi Front", "Barbarossa" and "Operatsiya Blau" can be added. "Kurs na Okinawu" includes patches 3.03, 3.03m, 4.01 and 4.01m so you don't have to download them from the 1C website. However, they must be installed before installing "Kurs na Okinawu" since that contains stuff that makes use of items included in 4.01 such as the Ki.100. The "Kurs na Okinawu" CD also includes the 4.0 patch for "Vtoroi Front" (BoE).
Patch 4.02(m) will apparently be included on "Kholodnoe Nevo Zapolyarya" so if you can get hold of that you won't have to download that patch either.

You left "Operatsiya Blau" off the list http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
I suspect the UK versions will install in the Russian game, but of course you will then get mission briefings in English in an otherwise Russian game........ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
And with the CDs costing only 20 Grivna each in Kiev (about $4) for a single CD, why not buy the Russian versions of Barbarossa and Blau as well? PF and FB cost double that, but of course they contain two CDs each.
