Interesting how far one can get with Google:

The editorial office was
in the last
Time quite often
asked, but again something about
to print the military flight simulation.
We forget the followers
this kind of simulation by no means
and present this article about
a new part of the IL-2 Sturmovik
Series of 1C Publishing www.1cpublish-
ing.eu from Russia. In preparation
another report on the digital
Combat Simulator www.digitalcombatsimulator.
com is in planning.
The Battle of the Kuban in Germany is a forgotten chapter in the history of World War II. Today the area bears the name Krasnodarski
Krai to the city of Krasnodar. But its boundaries are not completely identical to those of the Kuban area of ​​earlier times. Most of all, he lacks the landscapes of Karachai
Circassia in the southeast. It was of strategic interest during the Second World War,
Occurrence at Maykop and other mineral resources, with the Taman Peninsula between the Black Sea and the Sea of ​​Azov, and the Kerch Strait, which connects both and west of it is the Crimea. How up to date ...
The starting position in the spring of 1943 was
as follows: The Battle of Stalingrad
was beaten and the German 6th Army,
Parts of the 4th Army as well as Romanian
Associations sink in the boiler.
The Kuban area and
especially the Taman peninsula
hold, because it represents the springboard
across the Caucasus to the oil fields
Soviet
orderly withdrawal of Army Group
Line (East Wall).
For the Soviet troops was the
Reconquering the traffic junction
Krasnodar and the whole area
a prerequisite for the conquest
Ukraine, without the German
Wehrmacht "in the back" to have. information

the Germans wanted at all costs
from Baku dar. Furthermore, they tied there
existing forces parts of the sovje

Sorry that I have overlooked this.
In the moment, I am witnessing an article on "Operation Bodenplatte" of the last attempt by the German Air Force to attack the British and American Air Force in the early hours of 1st January 1945. The matter went badly wrong, because the own German anti-aircraft artillery was not or insufficiently informed. A large number of the own machines were shot down. The bloodletting, especially among the well-trained leaders from the squadron leader to the Geschwader-commanders, could not be remedied.
The RAF and USAAF had lost a lot of aircraft, but were able to make up for their losses within two weeks and lost almost no pilots... On german side a number of proud and well-known "Geschwader" were decimated so badly that they could not recover from it. Only the Geschwader of the "Reichsverteidigungung" 300 and 301 did not fly this mission. There is a good description of the battle, which mentions the names of many pilots who have not returned. A larger number are still missing to this day. Interesting for me was that most of the units of the German Luftwaffe typical aircraft with piston engines flew Fw 190A-8 and A-9, Fw 190F-9 and the "long-nosed Focke Wulf Fw 190D-9 ... Messerschmitt Bf 109G-10, G-14 and G-16 and the "Kurfürst" Bf-109K-4 the latest version of the Bf 109. There was almost no trace of the Me 262, some machines of the KG J 51 were probably there, but the novotny command was already disbanded and the Jagdgeschwader 7 was not yet operational and not involved in the operation. The "Jagdverband 44" was formed even later. Thus, many claims about the strategic importance of the Me 262 remain a fairy tale...

Next projects are Tobruk in 1942 and Normandy in 1944. The latter is not yet finished, but it will certainly be interesting. The planes are already there, but the maps are still missing.
