From the official release:

"Players may choose from a variety of bombing missions, including torpedo attacks, dive bombing, and high altitude bombing. Targets include amphibious landing craft, realistic coastal fortifications, and a wide selection of ground vehicles, each built to an even higher level of detail than in the previous 1C:Maddox Games flight sims".

Funny, they forgot to mention carriers, battleships, and oher naval vessels in their list of targets.

Because you do not do that on a press release. The long and short of it is that while some pieces of information need to be specific (ie. all of the types of missions you can fly) the other things are considered fluff...unimportant to the stockholders and thus not worth mentioning.

A full, proper list, will likely be presented to us at a later date. Its relatively unreasonable to expect to have a full list right now....as we know with AEP, things can change.

However, I will quote the main IL2 Sturmovik page here and give you some hope:
"Players will appreciate the variety of famous fighters, however, in this title more than any previous Maddox sim, we‚'re emphasizing flyable bombers such as the SBD Dauntless, Aichi Val, Mitsubishi G4M Betty, and at least four versions of the North American B-25 Mitchell."

Impressive. Co-ops featuring SBD's and Wildcats or Zeros and Betty's or the infamous Yamamoto takedown can be all done by player pilots.

Well, the Avenger is hardly essential for either Pearl Harbour
(not in service) or Midway (only 6 deployed, got very chewed up by the Zero's, only 1 RTB) but the other two are.

We don't know what planes are in yet, but over the whole conflict these are essential types, and need to be at least AI.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall
