Team Fusion Simulations’ Desert Wings: Tobruk

The Desert Air War comes to IL-2 Sturmovik

Some time ago, I had a conversation with our technical editor, Richard Benedikz, about how of all the theatres of operation that have been portrayed in flight simulators over the years, the one that has been largely neglected by developers is the desert air war.
