Spitfire Mk.VВ

The Supermarine Spitfire is a legendary example of British aircraft engineering and one of the best fighter aircraft of WWII. It flew in Europe, Africa and the Pacific. The first Spitfire Mk.Vs were upgraded from earlier I and II models and were operational in early 1941. A total of 6,641 airframes were produced. More than a hundred of RAF squadrons used Mk.Vs and they were also sent to British dominions and used by other Allied countries. The VB modification was equipped with the Merlin 45 or 46 engine (the latter was better suited for higher altitudes), two 20mm cannons and four 7.7mm machineguns. 143 of them were given to USSR and saw action in the skies of Kuban during Spring 1943.

Hs 129 B-2

The Hs 129 was designed to be a general purpose armored ground attack plane, but during the second part of the war it became the main anti-tank aircraft flown by the Luftwaffe. Armed with powerful weapons, the ‘Duck’ as it was called first appeared in May 1942 in the southern sector of the Soviet-German front. It saw action at the battles of Stalingrad, Kuban and Kursk salient and was also used in North Africa. Anti-tank squadrons equipped with these aircraft were sent to the frontline where the enemy threat was the greatest. Having many unique features, the Hs 129 B-2 was armed with a wide assortment of weapons including the 30mm MK 101 and MK 103 cannons.

Collector Planes

Collector Planes are additional content not included in Standard Editions that can be added to extend the one’s collection of aircraft. Premium Editions include two Collector Planes each, they can be also bought separately if you own a Standard Edition. These planes are usable in all gameplay modes. The availability of Collector Planes in a campaign depends on the historical availability of this plane in that theater or battle.
