I dont know if this has been discussed previously and I am sure it has but I have been having a blast with a Russian vs. Japanese naval battles scenario.

I know the USSR declared war on Japan in '45 but I do not know if any battles resulted. Not shortly after the bombs were dropped Japan surrended to the US and the war ended. But what if the bombs never dropped?

I have made a few simple single player missions with different maps to simulate Manchuria and what not. Of course Soviet Tanks versus Jap tanks, ehh hmmm no contest but its still fun.

But the best part is launching Sturmoviks from carriers and landing them again, not realistic but a total blast. The IL2T makes a great Naval Torpedo Bomber (w/ Lagg escorts or even Migs).
Go to IL2 Skins and get some alternate paint schemes. The key is use your imagination and have fun.

I love this Sim.

IIRC Aces ofer the Pacific that Dynamix ut out long time ago, had a what if 1945 and 1946 scenario included in them... made for interesting play. I think that there are a lot of talented people here that can pool resources and talent to get something going for PF.

Although I am not fond of the idea of attempting USSR carrier ops, I am the biggest FanBoy ("FB") of Japanese vs Russia from 1940 all the way through 1945. This was the Northern Option of the Japanese Army. NAVY got its way with the Southern Option and managed to worm its way into history books. Northern Option is the greatest story never told, until now.

Actually, you can. Let your beard grow long, and then dip it in a jar full of creamy blue cheese. Social and sexual disgrace would be unavoidable, tho.

As for the Russian add-on, every time I think of it I get very nervous: they'll have Pe-2, Il-10, Mongolia war, etc, etc. We'll not. UBI doesn't like it.

I wish I had a Russian cousin!

Il-2's have tailhooks...? or do I need to learn to land yet another hook-less plane on a carrier... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif (only when I've done it in an A-20 or B-25 will I be happy)

Are you sure? Oleg posted some weeks ago that the addon would be released for sure in the Russian market but that it would potentially be released elsewhere too...all he was saying was that don't count on it being SPECIFICALLY for the Russian market when it could be made available elsewhere.

Well, this is no "what if" scenario.

But I just read about the undeclared war between USSR and Japan in Khalkin Gol - Mongolia in 1939 (?) that ended in devastation for Japanese forces.

It seems that the Kwantung army launched a war on their own that in the end turned to be their doom.

Hmm... If only we have flyable Ki-27 and a Mongolia map.
