“….. The best known aircraft of 1917and 1918 are included (AlbatrosÂ D.5, Fokker D.VII, DFW C.5,Â Brequet Bre.14, Nieuport Nie.17, Nieuport Nie.28, Spad S.13, Royal Air Factory SE.5) and each is modeled in great detail.Â Simulation of the engines and weapons is highly realistic. The world around you is far from a static backdrop to your flights. Over 100.000 km2 of highly realistic terrain (including Lille, Cambrai, Reims and Verdun) complemented with a sophisticated weather model create a theater of operations where you will engage the enemy. On the ground you will see the first tanks rolling towards the enemy and trains and trucks that supply the front line.Â The front line is marked with trenches, explosions and a dangerous area because of the anti-aircraft.
After completing the training flights you can fly single missions to perfect your skills. The career mode is the next logical step and you will join a squadron and follow one of several campaigns. Of course an advanced mission builder is included so you can make missions and share them with your friends.

The release of the English boxed version is expected in July 2009, the download version will follow early August. German and Spanish/French versions will follow late summer.
