Konami have announced Birds of Steel, a new WWII era combat flight sim currently in development at Russian studio Gaijin Entertainment, the crew behind IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey and more recently Apache: Air Assault.
Birds of Steel is a breath-taking combat simulator featuring some of the most pivotal air battles of World War II, including the battle of Midway, Guadalcanal, Coral Sea, the historic attack on Pearl Harbour, the Mediterranean Maltese island, Germany’s Ruhr Valley, and others. Players can select how detailed they want each campaign to be, and are offered a wealth of single and multi-player campaigns.

Birds of Steel offers 20 historical and a wealth of fictitious missions, spanning eight world-famous campaigns, and users are given access to over 100 famous planes from the entire axis and allied forces rosters. A number of planes ideal for each campaign can be selected, and have been faithfully recreated in terms of handling, capabilities and weaponry. The classic Spitfire, P-51D Mustangs, and Messerschmidt 109 are all lined up for combat, as players opt to player opt to fight for the Allies, Japanese or Axis forces.
Birds of Steel is in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, aiming for an "early 2012" release.

might have to drag out the old Saitek Aviator for 360, that looks great.
Bollocks for no PC version though, isn't that where the typical flight sim market is!?

this just makes me sad in my pants that battlefield 1943 wasn't released on PC.
looks pretty awesome though. don't really have any flying games and have been getting the urge to get one of late.
