Just Flight releases details on its new WWII-themed add-on for Microsoft's Flight Simulator series. First screens inside.
UK developer and publisher Just Flight has released the first screenshots from and information on The Dam Busters, a World War II-themed add-on pack compatible with Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2000 , Flight Simulator 2000 , and Flight Simulator 2000 games.
The game will focus on the sorties of the 617 Squadron, who, after their daring "bouncing bomb" mission on May 16, 1943, became known as The Dam Busters. That mission, which involved an attack on three dams in Germany's Ruhr valley, is by far the squadron's best known, but other success stories included the sinking of the Tirpitz and raids on V1 and V2 rocket sites, Bergen U-boat pens, and Hitler's infamous "Eagle's Nest" stronghold. All these sorties and more will be included in the 25 missions that make up the game.
The aircraft in the game, which were all used by the 617 Squadron at some point, will include the Wellington, the Mosquito, the Grand Slam Lancaster, and, of course, the famous modified "Bouncing Bomb" Lancaster.
The Dam Busters is scheduled for European release in early September. We'll bring you more information on the game as it becomes available.
