For me the most important thing to improve is the terrain. It really ruined everything for me in IL-2.

looks good, but was that used in the Battle of Britain? I've never encountered it before concerning the battle, so I doubt it.

Yup, there were Italian fighters and bombers in the Battle of Britain's latter stages, their lack and the lack of British bombers was one of my main criticisms of BoB2, along with no air/sea rescue elements.

Incidentally, the Italians fared pretty badly.

As a matter of fact, one of my heroes shot down an Italian aircraft in the Battle of Britain (Colin Pinckney). He was one of very few WW2 Allied pilots to shoot down an aircraft from all three Axis powers and I actually have some parts of the Spitfire which he bailed out of during the Battle of Britain (they are severely dented as you can imagine, but there is still paint on one of the panels), an incident which is documented in Richard Hillary's famous book 'The Last Enemy'. I made a slightly dramatised version of that event in this film by the way, R6753 being the Spitfire in question:



You can read about some of Pinckney's exploits here;

It seems impossible to know.

I just keep checking here.

It was Q4 2007, but I guess that is not likely since I haven't seem much.

Well apparently if rumour is to be believed this sound hack has delayed patch 4.09m for Il-2 1946 and BoB SoW.

I haven't tried it, but if you trust PC Gamer Magazine, It's quite a bad game, very short, CTDs every 30 minutes, invisible crewman etc. Got 38 out of 100
They've been wrong before but they rarely are in my opinion.
