Rowan's Battle of Britain

Flight simulator based on the Battle of Britain. You can fly five different aircraft - Spitfire, Hurricane, Messerschmitts BF109 & BF110 and Stuka Dive Bomber Ju87, and be the gunner of German bomber - Dornier Do17, Heinkel He11 or Junkers Ju88. Ability to extend game play through usermods.

Many flight sims take place in a strangely empty world, but not this award-winning sim. A combat flight simulator within a war simulator, this game allows you to play pilot and general for either the British or the German side.  You control all air assets in an unscripted campaign and also jump in to fly as desired.  As with Mig Alley, which uses the same game engine, you can pick targets, manage logistics, create custom missions and assess intelligence, giving you insight into this period in history.

Flyable planes include the spitfire, hurricane, ME 109 E4, ME 110 and
Stuka.  Engine behavior and prop pitch are modeled, along with other
aircraft systems.

Updates created by community volunteers add clouds, textures, Track IR, new views and bug fixes.
