I'd always fancied a flyable Helldiver so I built one myself. Just made my first carrier trap with it this evening on FS9. I'll post the mesh this weekend if anyone wants to play with it.

One of my all time favs....it is such a shame this bird wasn't included with PF. PF without it is like ice cream without hot fudge.

There is already a nice SB2C-4 and -5, complete with virtual cockpit, found here:

Dang!! Don't you just hate that. Just donwloaded wolfgang Faber's Helldiver - and it's a beauty.

Here's a vid of mine doing it's carrier trials:


The Helldiver really should have been included in PF. I've posted the mesh on my site at
if any modellers out there want to use it.

Well if things go the way I'm thinking it will. I believe after Oleg releases IL2 1946 to the 3rd parties for further development, we just may see more planes. Keep in mind, I said MAY. Not only that, but more maps, items etc as well.
Having said that, it's not set in stone either. So just have to wait and see what develops this year.
I always liked the Helldiver and I wish to have the Bearcat myself. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

Excellent work, Durchstarten!

As for IL2 being released to 3rd parties, probably not until some time after the debut of Storm of War, if ever.
