Detailed features

Campaign mode missions

Missions have to be played one after another, only proceeding when a mission has been completed successfully. In return the player can receive awards, promotions and build up a career in this mode.
Campaign mode is a single player, offline mode.
230 missions playable as Bf 109 pilot (JG 52).
230 missions playable as Fw190 pilot (JG 52).
The two mission sets are basically the same - just the aircraft available for the user is different.

The campaign runs and plays from June 22 1941 until May 7 1945, i.e. from the beginning of Unternehmen Barbarossa to the cease-fire and the ending of WWII.

Missions include fighter-bomber, fighter, intercept and escort.
Aircraft: Bf 109, Fw 190, La-5FN, P-39, I-16, Yak1b, LAGG-3 and MiG-3U.


Single Player missions

This also is a single player, offline mode. Unlike campaign mode, the missions can be played in a player-preferred order with random access of each mission. No order of events has to be followed.
28 missions flying for the German Luftwaffe.
34 missions flying for the Russian VVD.
390 missions of the campaign are playable in this mode as well.
Missions include figher-bomber, fighter, intercept and escort.
Aircraft: Bf 109, Fw 190, La-5FN, P-39, I-16, Yak1b, LAGG-3 and MiG-3U.


Co-op missions

This is a multiplayer mode, playable online or via LAN. Up to 16 human players (usually 8 per side) can play each mission. Playing them with less human players, the remaining 'slots' are filled with computer-driven AI aircraft, so that game play doesn't differ much whether there are 2 or 16 human players. The package includes 20 missions flying for either Russian or German side, 16 players per mission possible.


Dogfight maps

Dogfight mode is a multiplayer mode, playable online or via LAN. Unlike co-op mode there are no missions – each player fights on his own against all other players. The package includes 5 fictional maps:

Dogfight map summer with all aircraft available
Dogfight map winter with all aircraft available
Dogfight map winter with P-11 and I-16 aircraft
Moscow winter with all aircraft available
Crimea with all aircraft available

Plus the following historical dogfight maps:
Smolensk 1941, Moscow Winter 1941, Moscow Summer 1941, Stalingrad Summer 1942, Stalingrad Winter 1942, Crimea 1942, Crimea 1944, Kuban 1942, Kuban 1944, Kursk 1943, Prokhorovka 1943
