Our website is open for business:

http://www.9-1939.pl

What is it all about?
We are currently working on a "September 1939" add-on for the successor of the Sturmovik series - the "Battle of Britain" - which will feature a professionally made September 1939 air campaign, for all the Blitzkrieg fans. At first our efforts were aimed at the IL-2/FB/AEP, but we were convinced by Oleg Maddox himself to switch to his next sim, as the Polish vehicles are already being built for it (you could see their screenshots in one of the BoB-related interviews). Our main task is to prepare Polish planes, as the German ones are already being worked on by 1C:Maddox Games for the BoB itself.

Our website will allow you not only to track our progress, but also to learn more about Polish warbirds, civilian aircraft from 1930s, aviation industry, pilots and the first air battles of WW2. We'd like to dispel some myths that have arisen over those 60 years, re-introduce to you the exciting stories about Polish airmen performing stunts on air shows that used to draw attention of the audiences in the Europe and USA, present to you some less known facts about Polish Air Forces fighting in Western Europe (and beyond)... I'm sure we're going to surprise even the hardcore WW2 history buffs. You can always find more stuff on our international forum - don't be shy, join us!

Rest assured that we'll also take good care of Polish squadrons in RAF and (if our French colleagues succeed with their Battle of France project) in France 1940. This could be the first flightsim to feature a whole Polish pilot career: from Poland through France to Great Britain.

Great news!

Maybe the setting is a little bit unfair, but war is seldom fair.

Anybody doing a Spanish Civil WAR addon too? That and Mongolia happened in 1939 too.

I really can't wait for BoB...no NOOB late war planes and maybe, just maybe, a Bf~109D. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Its true that the overall battle was one sided but the Polish airforce generally gave as good as it got (contrary to popular tv docos they weren't destroyed on the ground).
The Luftwaffe recorded 285 aircraft lost with a similar number badly damaged or written off. Since only ~90 were claimed by AAA that leaves the bulk to the fighter force (126 official claims - incredibly the Germans lost more planes than the enemy claimed).
The Poles lost around 327 planes (~70 in air to air engagements).

Source of the figures - "History of the Polish airforce" J Cynk (Osprey) and "Aircraft vs Aircraft" Norman Franks.

BoB is going to be sooo huge - can't wait http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just in case you missed it, we've recently added two big treats:

First, the recorded sound of the engine from PZL P.11c fighter - it was fired up just a month ago!

Second, a sizeable photo collection of Polish air force badges.
I'm wearing the one from the top of the list on my leather jacket :P

I wish somebody would finally do such campaign. I was even proposing teaming up 9/39 campaign with Spanish Civil War in IL-2/FB/AEP, due to availability of early German and Russian a/c...
(well, Polish birds served there, too: RWD-13, PWS-10...)

There's also a chance for early Luftwaffe planes - these won't be featured in BoB, but might be added with 9/39 - I'm thinking of Bf 109D, Hs 123, He 111E...

Guys, remeber to check back the site often - we usually add new articles to the HISTORY section every couple of days.

Next week there will be some screenshots of a new aircraft under development http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
