Just thinking out loud on my lunch break. I've seen historical map overlay for google earth, first I got was a 1940 military (thus not the purposely inaccurate maps produced for civilian use in the USSR) map of Moscow.

Has anyone though of taking the maps of Il-2 (except the fantasy online maps) and overlaying them over google earth? Has it been done already? Might be neat to get a scale of what we fly over.

I do recall being able to identify certain lakes and rivers on some maps, notably the Moscow and Smolensk maps while looking at them on Google Earth.

Now I'll have to fiddle with my Printscreen function to see what I can come up with.

Are you serious?

I released them a long time ago:

This is the 4.08 Il-2 world I had made visual in Google Earth:

Click this link for the Google Earth .kml file:

There's still an issue with the Midway map but that's a Google bug, already reported.

Here you'll find them in Google Maps:
