New Aircraft – 32 new flyable fighters and bombers, including the Il-10 Sturmovik, the MiG-9 Jet fighter, the Arado Ar-234 Blitz jet bomber, or the N1K2 George fighter; plus four new AI aircraft.
New Maps – Large new historical maps of the Kiev region, a Manchuria region map focusing on the border between the USSR, China and Japanese-occupied Korea, a large bonus Burma map and an online Khalkin Gol / Nomonhan map.
New campaigns - With nearly 200 missions, unparalleled realism and attention to detail, the nine new campaigns will thrust players into detailed fighter and bomber pilots missions for the German, Soviet and Japanese air forces.
Alternate history - Three of the nine campaigns are a departure into alternate history, focusing on hypothetical battles between the Soviet Union and Germany in the year 1946 where WWII still rages on. Both the VVS and Luftwaffe now have access to advanced jet and rocket fighters.
Unparallel Historical Accuracy – All of the historical campaigns and aircraft are created with the same ceaseless attention to detail that made the Il-2 series so popular; and even the what-if planes and missions are made as realistic as possible, with final results often rewriting the commonly-held opinion on these prototype aircraft.
New features – In addition to such exotic aircrafts as Soviet mixed-power fighters, 1946 also adds an incredible variety of new ground targets, including, for the first time in the series, trenches and bunkers that give a whole new dimension to the ground attack aspect of the simulation.
