No sir.

But if it uses MDS I will be checking it out for sure.

Have begun the download of this massive mod.... approximately 23gb in total :shock: too many new aircraft, maps and objetcs etc for me to pass up. I dont expect itll be done for a wee while obviously... will post an update when it is completed and installed and make it available to anyone who is able to get a solid state drive big enough to transport it lol

[EDIT] Dang! 23gb done overnight. still need to download IL21946 updates, prob installed and running tomorrow night.... there's cricket to watch dontcha know :D still happy to make a copy for anyone that wants it... remember this is for offline play and youd be best to have a separate install so you dont muck up your TFK nights

Well... sad to say, but I wouldnt bother with this one... there is a huge amount of content in this mod pack, but far too many small glitches to be as enjoyable as the other mod packs available. The sound is terrible and many previously good FM's have somehow been botched in the process.

The new aircraft such as the RNZAF Hudson, P40-N, Beechcraft etc had such promise for mission making, but its just not as polished as it should be... more of a 'lets see how much stuff we can cram in' mod

Gutted... was really looking forward to making some missions that were previously undoable; but, not to be.

Still happy to make a copy for anyone that wants it, I might wait and see if an update ever appears before I try it again

I lost interest as soon as I found out it was aimed at offline play.

The extra content would be nice though.

A few screenies from The Jet War side of the CUP mod. Put together better than the WW2 side of the mod in my opinion. Still a little buggy in some places, but playable and nice to fly something a bit different. I dont really fly Jet sims, so dont have anything to compare it to, But I dont think the FM's are quite there?... probably more a limitation of the software Im guessing.... dont think Oleg had Mach 1+ in mind when he made IL2 :D
