Luftwaffe Commander - PC Games
Jan. 1999 - Eagle Interactive

Luftwaffe had the makings of an interesting, offbeat simulator, but without some serious patching and a complete re-issue, it will remained nearly unplayable.

Late in the game during a surge of WWII flight sims released in the late 90s, Nations entered a crowded field, offered nothing new to the masses, and its flawed flight model kept the simulation fanatics away.

Newer version of the online multi-player WWII flight simulator WarBirds. This version simply adds more aircraft a player can control.

Mar. 2002 - Looking Glass / Mad Doc

Looking Glass spent 2.5 years developing this game, until Electronic Arts pulled funding from it. A deal was reached to have Mad Doc Software finish developing the simulator, and Xicat would publish it.

Pacific Fighters - PC Games
Oct. 2004 - 1C Maddox

From the developers that brought out the award winning IL-2 Sturmovik flight sims, Pacific Fighters is based on the same engine and shifts the campaign over to the Pacific theatre. And just like IL-2, it has also generated a massive amount of online modding and communities centered around this sim.

Aug. 2005 - Shockwave / A2A Simulations

A re-make of Rowan's Battle of Britain, it entered a small market while most sim fans were busy modding their IL-2 and Pacific Fighters. But due to its historical accuracy, it remains popular among WWII enthusiasts, and won several awards including SimHQ's Best of 2006 award.

Feb. 2007 - Wild Hare

A modified version of Battle of Britain II: Wings of Victory, this game had a lot less focus on realism and more so on arcade-style gameplay for novice players.

Mar. 2007 - 1C Maddox
Rather than release new versions, 1C Maddox pushes out new IL-2 releases as compilations. This latest includes all previously released IL-2 games and add-ons, all patches, as well as new aircraft and a 1946 'what-if' scenario complete with all concept prototype aircraft that were on the drawing boards when WWII ended. This DVD compilation also includes Pacific Fighters, a stand-alone game, but needed to take advantage of this simulator's massive online modding community.
