21 March 2022 ‘RECON WARS’ - OUT NOW! Our FREE update for “Wings Over Flanders Fields Between Heaven & Hell II” users is now available! Please see the WOFF BH&H II downloads page to get the WOFF BH&H II update V1.21 - this will give you the free expansion ! We highly recommend reading the ‘History of Changes’ section for the latest important notes and instructions. For your convenience, these ‘Recon Wars’ Notes can also be downloaded here.
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.
3 February 2023 WOFF BH&H II Update to V1.36 This great update has five free improvements for WOFF BH&H II users. Items include some improved Tree Models for a more realistic look in scenery, and a very welcome new feature; now grass is seen at airfields!

Please see the BH&HII downloads page where you can read those and download the update. For your convenience, these Help and Notes can also be downloaded here. This has the important help and instructions included for ‘Recon Wars’ so worth a read. Recon Wars is our new free 2-Seater Expansion included with the update since V1.21).

6 June 2023 WOFF BH&H II ADD-ON Development News! Today we reveal some of the superb content coming in a new WOFF BH&H II Add-On we are currently working on. The images below show a couple of the exciting new aircraft for future release, the Sopwith Dolphin, and the Morane Saulnier “Bullet” Type N. Note the superb detailed cockpit and structural internals on the Dolphin, and externals of the Bullet including deflector plates on the prop to stop it shooting its own prop off! These are going to be very interesting additions! You can also see the improved engines, the Dolphin’s 200hp geared Hispano-Suiza and the LeRhone 9C rotary engine for the Bullet. Everything you see is of course not finished, including textures, as these are work-in-progress and may change before release. There’s also a very early picture of the start of the work on the fuselage of the Dolphin, and wiring shown on the Bullet to give you an idea of the complexity of work.
20 November 2023 WOFF BH&H II - Belgian EXPANSION Development Update November 2023 Currently we are focusing primarily on the Belgian Expansion. We have been updating most of the aircraft that will be used by the Belgians and their associated Squadrons and Aces. Improvements and tweaks to various aircraft models such as the Sopwith Camel, Nieuport 10, 11, 16, 17, 23, RAF BE2c, RE8, Caudron G.IV, SPAD VII, SPAD XIII, Sopwith Strutter A2, Breguet 14. The revamp includes 3D model updates, some of which are quite significant, such as the Camel External and Virtual Cockpit models. In the theatre all major nations are now properly represented on the ground, they own the correct historical airfields, soldiers are represented for each country, and improved representation of active battles along the front line. Moreover the actual army unit labels are now represented in the active battles. Nations represented in battles: Belgium France Britain Canada Australia USA Germany We are also updating the lighting in the theatre and giving you more choice as to the brightness of the terrain and scenery render, as well as improved shadow render distance. Other Scenery improvements include airfields and how they blend with the theatre for a much more realistic look.
