7 April 2021 We are pleased to announce that after 18 months of non-stop intensive work, a new standalone product in the venerable and well regarded WOFF series is NOW AVAILABLE! BH&H II has improved visuals and sounds - a superb feeling of “being there” brought to life with virtual cockpit and engine vibrations, pilot animations, goggle effects and more adding to the already high player immersion in previous versions of WOFF. Combine all that with extensive improvements across most all areas, fantastic AI for absorbing combat, new air buffeting, more detail and features in the superb unrivalled single dynamic campaign with 500 detailed historical squadrons to fly in, beautiful scenery, over 80 improved FLYABLE aircraft and WOFF BH&H II is now an ‘all round’ very immersive WW1 Air Combat experience for PC! Please see the Features page for more detailed info. March 2021 During testing of WOFF BH&H II… “… It's bloody well brilliant! … Between the new sounds, engine shake animations, wind currents buffeting the planes, pilot heads actively scanning the skies, dirty goggles (I haven't even had rain yet) and the incredible AI, I've never felt more like I've been in the seat of a WWI aircraft in my life. I have to say it's head and shoulders above anything I've ever flown, including previous versions of WOFF. I had very high expectations and they have been met or exceeded in every way. Everyone who loves flight sims should fly this.” (Regarding the AI) “It’s literally the best I've ever flown against. Utterly enjoyable, challenging and engrossing.” - Todd ‘Hellshade’ Beta tester.

PREVIOUS NEWS OF NOTE ;
As we revealed recently, for the first time in any combat flight sim you are now able to carry out proper Reconnaissance and Artillery Spotting missions to gather Intel and preserve the data via Notes, Photography or Radio Telegraphy, all in a full dynamic campaign. Real in-simulator data is collated to evaluate how you fare with your tasks over the very dangerous front lines. So no taking photos over the local French drinking establishment instead and passing those off to the commander! Air drops too have been implemented and at times you have to drop your Intel off at HQ in a "Weighted Bag" at 100m or lower (!) which needless to say can be a harrowing experience for even seasoned pilots given the ever present flak and MG fire around the front lines. The flak and ground fire will vary out there be careful if you approach an area with several ground forces or facilities nearby.
Between 25 March 2022 to 14 April 2022 ‘Recon Wars’ had several patches released from V1.22, V1.23, V1.24 and V1.25. See the WOFF BH&HII downloads page now superceeded by V1.27 see above).
