The landscape in that video reminds me a bit of Aces over Europe...

Looking forward to seeing later version of it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hey guys... I think the narrator at ~0:40sec in video says "eel - dva" for "IL-2". Is that how it is pronounced in English?

"eel - dva" is exactly how it is pronounced on my language (Croatian), it shares some roots with the Russian (being a Slavic language, that is).

Well at least we saw some ingame shots. That's the progress I've been waiting for. I wish the interview had run a little longer though.

Nope, it's 'eye-ell too' as far as I'm aware. Perhaps we should all call it 'eel - dva' from now on, to confuse the noobs. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Nice to see they are making progress, though TV shots of video games never really show much.

Interesting. I was wondering what he was saying - thought it sounded like dwa, myself. I say it like Andy does.

Yeah, the narrator definitely says "eel-dva" (the way plane and a sim is pronounced in slavic languages) a couple of times in the beginning of the clip. Actually the way how he pronounces "IL-2 šturmovik" at approx. 0:18 is great for anyone wondering how is it pronounced in Russian or in most other slavic languages.

That's funny.

A few years back I got to be friends with a guy from Belarus who had an aviation background. I brought up IL2 with him and he had no idea what I was going on about nor what language I was trying to speak.

I thought this was odd, a person with an aerospace education from a country with a very strong military tradition and has no clue about the famous ground attack aircraft?

After a bit he figured it out and with a good laugh corrected my phonetically pathetic attempt at discussing Russian aviation history with a Russian.

Turns out "eye el two storm-oh-vick" isn't even close...

Work in Progress or not, I really enjoyed this interview.

Aircraft names in the US are given a simple letter code for their function.

P = pursuit (changed to F - fighter) B= bomber. An AC-47 is "Aye See" forty-seven.

Everywhere else in the world the letters are not pronounced separately.

Me-109 is "May" one-hundred nine. Here we say "Em Ee" one-o-nine.

Il-2 in English should be "Eel two" not "Eye Ell two" Ki-61 is "Kee sixty-one" not "Kay Eye" sixty-one.

It's funny to see people refer to the Spitfire Mk.IX (Mark nine) as the "Emm Kay Eye Eks" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Never heard it pronounced that way in numerous documentaries I've watched. Using your example, then how would you say Fw-190? Fwaaa?

Can somebody explain me what's so Ooooh and Aaaah about this short clip? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
I see a Stuka and oh wow 6DOF. Revolutionary.

In this September/October 2008(!) SOW interview by Mysticpuma with Oleg Maddox and Ilya Shevchenko we see a Hurricane, a Stuka and 6DOF (after three and a half minutes).

There are exceptions. I have seen it written as FW-190, which would mean each letter is pronounced separately.

Yeahhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

Slavic:
IL = eel
2 = dwa (dwa, or correctly written dva means two on many Slavic languages)

English:
IL = eye eel
2 = two

I hope I got correctly the English part, for the Slavic part I'm pretty sure I nailed it then (http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).

Yeah, some things that begin with "st" are pronounced "št", that would be "sht" on English I presume.

For instance Ju-87 is popularly nicknamed Stuka, and pronounced Shtuka ("Štuka").
