Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced that IL-2 STURMOVIK™: 1946, will take off on March 13, 2007 for PCs in North America. The long-awaited IL-2 STURMOVIK™: 1946 is the latest installment in the acclaimed Il-2 Sturmovik™ brand from award-winning developers 1C: Maddox Games and RRG Studios.

IL-2 STURMOVIK™: 1946 is a wide-ranging new offering, with 32 new flyable aircraft, hundreds of new missions in nine campaigns spread across the entire globe, nearly 1,000 new paintschemes, as well as many exclusive features. Pilots can fly the skies and fight enemies over the Russian front, German occupied Europe, the Far East and the Pacific. STURMOVIK™: 1946 also includes all of previous Il-2 series content in a single simple installation, thus bringing the most respected anthology flight simulator to an unmatched 229 flyable aircraft and over 300 total aircraft on one DVD!

Key Features:

New Aircraft – 32 new flyable fighters and bombers, including the Il-10 Sturmovik, the MiG-9 Jet fighter, the Arado Ar-234 Blitz jet bomber, or the N1K2 George fighter; plus four new AI aircraft.
New Maps – Large new historical maps of the Kiev region, a Manchuria region map focusing on the border between the USSR, China and Japanese-occupied Korea, a large bonus Burma map and an online Khalkin Gol / Nomonhan map.
New campaigns - With nearly 200 missions, unparalleled realism and attention to detail, the nine new campaigns will thrust players into detailed fighter and bomber pilots missions for the German, Soviet and Japanese air forces.
Alternate history - Three of the nine campaigns are a departure into alternate history, focusing on hypothetical battles between the Soviet Union and Germany in the year 1946 where WWII still rages on. Both the VVS and Luftwaffe now have access to advanced jet and rocket fighters.
Unparallel Historical Accuracy – All of the historical campaigns and aircraft are created with the same ceaseless attention to detail that made the Il-2 series so popular; and even the what-if planes and missions are made as realistic as possible, with final results often rewriting the commonly-held opinion on these prototype aircraft.
New features – In addition to such exotic aircrafts as Soviet mixed-power fighters, 1946 also adds an incredible variety of new ground targets, including, for the first time in the series, trenches and bunkers that give a whole new dimension to the ground attack aspect of the simulation.
Exclusive bonus - Making of, interview videos and screenshots of the new features, plus exclusive screenshots and never before seen videos taken from upcoming Maddox game: Storm of War™: Battle of Britain. A Detailed Plane Guide, totaling over 450 pages of information, gives the low-down on every single one of the 229 flyable aircraft, giving new players much easier access to the incredible variety of aircraft in the simulator.

In case you didn't know.

Thanks for the update Thunderbolt56. Yes, I running '46 with patch 4.08. But I was wondering if there are some new progs, nice servers or future patches comming up, like a flyable D21. And what about il2skins.com and Hardball's viewer...

I believe I ran across a thread at SimHQ that stated a patch would be out in a month or so with at least 3 new maps.
