A persistent myth surrounding the early days of the Soviet Airforce was that their aircraft were obsolete - this was far from the case. Aircraft like the Yak-1 and I-16 could go toe-to-toe with early models of Bf109, while the IL2 Sturmovik proved to be a very capable ground-attack aircraft. Blood Red Skies is the perfect game for recreating these early war aerial duels - Soviet squadron commanders will find out if quantity truly has a quality all of its own!
