the following is the official press release on the il-2 website:

The Battle of Britain (working title), following in the steps of IL-2, will be packed with even more historical realism and will use a new engine, a dynamic campaign system and new weather effects. It will take place in 1940 during the Battle of Britain and will allow players to fly for the British, German or Italian air forces.

does this mean that we'll finally be able to fly as the Italians? and if it does mean that does it mean we'll just be able to fly the G. 50's and Cr. 42's that Italy sent to Belgium or does it mean some greater role for Italy?

It would be great to get an Italian campaign the way the Finns have a campaign in FB.

Pretty much answers you first question. As to what type of planes, gee, did the italians actually have more then 1? Anyway, when it arrives, in like 2 years, i'm sure you'll have your answer.

The Italians only sent 2 types of fighter planes (Cr. 42 and G. 50) plus a number of bombers (I can't remember which types) to participate in the BoB but they had 10 important types of Fighters (M.200, M202, M.205, Re.2000, Re.2001, Re.2002,Re.2005, G.50, G55,Cr. 42) and many different bombers, the most famous of which is the Savoia Marchetti 79, considered by some to be the best land based torpedo bomber of WWII.
