    Hey Oleg!!! If you did a WWI sim you could load it full of giant Russian goodies! Think PE-8 meets the Red Baron here... Wouldn't one of these be nice to fly about in!?!

    The aircraft is the Il'ya Murometz heavy bomber, a military modification of Sikorskiy's "Le Grand" passenger aircraft which was the largest aircraft in existence at the time, and also became the first ever heavy bomber. Somewhere around 70-80 of these behemoths were produced during WWI, and they equipped the world's first heavy bomber squadron: the EVK Squadron.

    Just to confirm it is a Il'ya Murometz V type. And yes those things on the top front fuselage are fuel tanks.

    I fully agree. And I think enthusiasts would eat it up. Dogfighting in its finest.

    The major problem is the FM issues of a WWI flight sim, very little test data available on even the most abundant aircraft. Anecdotal evidence does't really cut it.

    And oh the joys of using a blip switch as a throttle in the camel and such. I can hear the whining now.

    Not to say that I didn't love RB though.
