War Thunder

I'd like to invite the whold of you to a game called war thunder:

http://warthunder.com/en/registration?r ... te_1219788

Especially the guys playing 1942. It's a plane based came that will in the future also include tanks and planes at the same time.

It's free to play, and it doesnt hinder your game play.

It is a combat flight simulator of sort, a little bit like IL-2 but more simple, although 3 game modes exist.

just putting it out there for yall!

There are three modes. One is arcade. Outside plane view, non-realistic mechanics, just a quick play. Historical battles is another. Full sim is another.

I've heard its full sim mode isn't as realistic as IL-2, the modeling isn't quite as full.

Thoughts, Molgat? Compared to Il-2 1946 and IL-2: Battle of Britain, if you have it.

My 9-yr old and I were on the beta test program for this one. Haven't played it since it released. Had a TON of promise, but I got too wrapped up in the BF3/4 thing to devote much time to it. Might have to check it out again.
