IL-2 Sturmovik: Desert Wings - Tobruk update 5.022

Post by ATAG Pattle » Sat Jun 12, 2021 12:02 am

Greetings pilots! New update for IL-2 Sturmovik: Desert Wings - Tobruk is here! This update brings in a bunch of changes, new missions, number of bufixes and some more skin updates!

As usual, we'd like to thank all of our loyal fans who share their feedback in our Steam Forums. Thank you for your support!

Read the full changelog below:

General Changes / Updates:
Aircraft now have a minimum fuel limit that cannot be gone below.
Various corrections in Italian localization
Fresh translation: Getting Started and Troubleshooting Guide - Russian.pdf

New missions:
Added new Blitz single mission Solent Skirmishes with five playable flights.
Added new Tobruk single mission As Above, So Below with four playable flights.
Added new Tobruk single mission Dawn over the Desert with five playable flights.

Fixes:
Fixed: BLITZ only German campaign required part Tobruk
Fixes: Campaign Desert Hawks: in missions 8 and 9, when the player led two flights of Kittyhawks (8 aircraft), the player’s formation was reduced to 4 Kittyhawks, and a flight of four Tomahawks performing the same mission was added. This was done to strike a balance between accurately depicting No. 3 SQN’s equipment (only a single Kittyhawk joined the squadron on 4/12/1941) and giving the player a flight to support them in combat. In missions 3, 7, and 10, ground attackers have been set to fly at full speed during their attack runs. Mission 6 altitude has been changed to 22,000ft.
Fixes: Campaign Desert Hawks, Eagles over Tobruk, On Ne Passé Pas, and Rising from the Ashes: formations of aircraft that use the imperial system have had their speed and altitude revised to better reflect their instruments.
Fixes: Campaign Rats over Tobruk: bombs removed from aircraft that do not need them.
Fixes: Campaign Adler Angriff: fixed a mistake that resulted in players requiring Tobruk to play the first mission. Our apologies for this oversight.
Fixes: Campaign Gravity is my friend, Operta Aperta 1940-41, Rats over Tobruk. Tempesta sull'Africa, and The Blue Wellingtons, 1940-41: bombs removed from aircraft that do not need them.
Fixes: A Busy Morning, Aerial Crusade, Aftershocks, Attack of the Kiwi, Attack of the Eagles, August Attrition, Battle Goes On, Corpo Aereo Italiano, Corpo Aereo Italiano II, Dusk Raid, Kanalkampf, No Respite, Old and the New, and Royal Rodeo have had the speed and altitude of multiple formations modified in order to improve variety in the situations encountered in missions. Formations of aircraft that use the imperial system have had their speed and altitude revised to better reflect their instruments. Slides and briefings have been updated to match, as well as to provide more information to aircraft performing radar-guided interception.

Skin Changes / Updates:
Kittyhawk Mk.IA (all variants) skin TFS Kittyhawk b05 CVO.jpg updated with historically accurate serial number.
Added skin JG27_3_Marseille 12.6.1942.jpg to all Bf-109 F-4/trop variants so that victory markings are accurate in the mission As Above, So Below.
Updated skin JG27_3_Marseille 7.12.1941.jpg to show correct victory tally.
