What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It is a great possibility to find interested community to improve the game together.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 9-12 months”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I plan to add:
- Escort and fire support system
- Customization and upgrade system (Hull materials, colors, sights, bullets)
- More flexible control of squadron movements and battle coordination
- Possibly co-op mode for gunners in the same airplane
- Online leaderboards”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Gameplay:
Core gameplay, damage system and flight mechanics is already done. That means airplanes are flying correctly and you can take control of any turret available on-board (at this moment 4 types of turrets are available). To clarify, the variability of gameplay is low at this moment.
There is a commander tab, but orders are limited to "land" and "continue mission".
Units:
Airplanes (B-25, A6M), Ships (Carriers and destroyers)
Maps and modes:
The game has only 1 map that reproduces the Pacific Theater (Iwo Jima island)”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“It will cost slightly more than now”

Update v.0.5


Added B-17 Superfortress, including the lower ball turret. Some details like the radio seat and bomb bay will be added later, but I would like you to try a new plane now.

The B-17 is available on the North Atlantic map, where the mode is designed exclusively to shoot opponents without maneuvering (more intensive mode with constantly coming enemies and air respawns, as originally planned. The main opponents are already existing French planes, as well as Fw-190).



The graphics are now less expensive and therefore I recommend "High" to use SSAO

Changes in flight mechanics - now air resistance is more realistic.


Changes in squad organization - it is way better now. Escort fighters will stay in the vicinity if there are no enemies nearby.


A bomb sight has been added (Norden), but at the moment it only works in the viewing mode - it integrates the bomb trajectory depending on the speed and altitude of the aircraft.

The smoke trail is now more dense, and a small probability of ignition has been added, which is mainly due to severe damage (more than 4-6 rounds of 12 mm on one side).

Small corrections:
Saving the game now works without problems, but the old save was dropped for compatibility.
The AI sounds are now a little quieter to be less annoying.
The main menu is now more interesting.
Balance changes in the hidden bonus map

Update v.0.4



This update presents new content, the most interesting is:

- at the request of players, added a map from the African theater of operations - Oran, a naval attack from Operation "Catapult" against the forces of Vichy France, with new AI airplanes: M.S. 406 (fighter aircraft), Potez 630 (mixed role). The map will be further developed.
- A new two-seater Blackburn B-24 Skua, currently represented by one Oerlikon 20 mm cannon.
- Ground targets, and the ability to select targets with the Right CTRL button. If no targets are selected, it is taken automatically. Therefore, to avoid misunderstandings, give commands manually if, for example, you want to return to the base (Left CTRL).
- The old map of the Pacific region now represents an assault on the island of Iwo Jima.
- Airplane markers are easier to distinguish and a marker of the most potential threat has been added.

Also, I forgot to add information about the Penultimate Update, in which swarm units were added to increase the scope of the battle (F6F, P-38, B-17, Ki-61)

About This Game

Play as a gunner in B-25 bomber. Shoot enemy interceptors from a first person view and support friendly air forces to finish the bombing mission. There are 4 types of turrets available: chose between side, tail, top or nose gunner positions to resist enemy attacks.

In this game you are not allowed to pilot the airplane because the main focus is a gunner view of the battle, so you can observe, shoot and override some orders. This game features detailed movement inside the airplane including passages that exist in real B-25.

The main objective is to drain enemy reinforcements by destroying enemy airplanes and/or fire support ships.
