"…the campaign is excellentthe AI is extremely good. The whole package makes me feel part of a squadron, in the thick of it … 109's that will boom and zoom instead of an endless turn fight, the list goes on.” -Trooper117, September 17 2018 IL2 forum “…ten Stuka dive bombing, every one attacking different targets, I watched as they all dive bombed (this kind of AI has never been so well done in any sim before)” -meplanes1969, September 8 2018 "… I have simply had so much fun so far. I have never smiled so much at virtual dogfights as I have in WoTR. I am very much looking forward to the next phase." - ChiefWH, September 29th SimHQ comment The combat is something else! Excellent AI… Don't get me started on that campaign as well ... Nothing else like it. -Lythronax, Posted September 8 IL2 forum “I'm really enjoying the sim, me and my squad mates had a awesome battle over the channel last night, it was arguably some of the best dogfighting action I've had in any sim to date it was awesome. Thanks OBD I'm loving the sim the AI is worth the price alone, the radio sounds the campaign… keep up the great work guys.” - Adger, September 29th SimHQ comment "Put in a few more hours this evening - really enjoying this sim. The immersion is top notch, especially with the sound design. The campaigns are particularly intense …. thought I was clear when all of the sudden the cockpit explodes with gunfire. Made me jump two feet out of my seat! Great work guys! PS: Also managed to ditch in the Channel successfully! That was a white-knuckle moment!" -CaptSopwith, October 2nd 2018 SimHQ comment “What a wonderful job you have done in producing WOTR. I honestly have to say after just a few missions that OBD has taken WOTR one notch above WOFF UE, and I Love WOFF UE also, but this just visually looks Fresh and feels really good in the FM department and the music. I am looking forward to entering a Campaign this weekend and experiencing what you all have prepared for me in the BOB, especially the AI. I just want to say that the pics I have posted are straight from the game, no Photoshop what so ever. What fabulous visuals WOTR presents us with. Thanks Again Guys. S! -Blade_Meister, October 20th 2018 SimHQ comment (images below too) “I was genuinely saddened. I'm so used to just replaying the mission and continuing with a career in other sims that the death of my pilot came as quite a shock. I have to say, in all my years of combat flight simming this is the only sim where I've felt a genuine connection with the Squadron and the others in the flight, and have been keen to defend them in the skies. I've watched in horror as on the approach to the home airfield, one of my flight mates started trailing smoke and eventually dropped out of formation. He managed to bail out (phew!). That is the first time I've ever seen an AI pilot suffer random engine failure in game. There was also one occasion where my wingman was was posted as missing, presumed killed. With much relief he managed to make it back to the Squadron and return to flying my wing, only to be killed by the enemy on the day he returned. I'm well impressed with the WOtR! I've never flown missions from start to finish with as much enthusiasm, or felt the adrenaline pump when in a dogfight; my main aim being to survive and return to base. Excellent stuff.” -PO_Klonko: Re: Combat Reports - March 5th 2019 AAR thread SIMHQ http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4464033#Post4464033

“,,,I had two outstandingly exciting and enjoyable missions and I was also surprised to see that some really large formations weren't having any noticeable effect on my performance. I had a brilliant fight with a 109 in one mission, so much so I was almost saluting the monitor as he went down, possibly the best combat flight I have had in any sim, ever. And then in the next mission it was just astonishingly good fun diving through a formation of he111s, I was grinning from ear to ear...” -ChiefWH, December 17 2018 SimHQ comment
PC Pilot in their March/April 2019 issue have published a new Wings Over The Reich article. it’s an interview with us here at OBD Software regarding WOTR development, together with some excellent pictures from WOTR. The article is well worth a read. Buy PC Pilot as a glossy printed magazine or in digital format from https://pcpilot.keypublishing.com/ We are hoping it will be followed with a review in the coming issues.
First few WOTR forum comments about the new V1.14 update with the Spitfire MKIa flyable FREE
Thanks for the Spit, she is a work of Art. Flew her this morning Sweet.! -Carrick58 Thank you. Great job with it! -Redwolf The Spitfire is a great addition! Really like the flight model. Thanks OBD for all the hard work. As a single player only type of guy, I really appreciate your efforts. -piper Excellent addition. Thanks to all in making this happen. -Stache I flew it last night and had great fun. It is not just a Hurricane in a different skin, lol. I think it is the logical course for the first "new" aircraft in that the British a playing defense and the fight is always coming to them., Now you have both major British fighters flying. Great Job!! -Burning Beard Brilliant,absolutely brilliant thanks POL and WM also thanks Robert and Nolan for the skins..Great work lads - Blade_meister Brlliant! The changes to the campaign sound great (time functions new airfields and group activity, subtle fixes here and there etc.). (and of course the spitfire is exciting!). Just waiting for my slow internet to do it's thing now! -ChiefWH I must say I am very impressed with the Spit. The cockpit is immaculate, and all of the anachronistic features I had noticed in the WIP photos (fishtail exhausts for example) were fixed before release. Fantastic job OBD!! She really is a treat. -Lythronax Thanks for all the hard work that went into this upgrade. The list of improvements alone is impressive, let alone the Spitfire flyable (for free, no less). Great! -77_Scout “Spitfire's a treat to fly” “First flight, fantastic mission, squadron took off to intercept the jerry in our shiny Mk1a spits, downed two he111's, suffered minor damage to landing gear and was able to land back at base with the gear down 98% of the way. What a smashing success!…” The spits an absolute joy to fly. Loving it… -JonRedcorn
- what we believe is the most authentic rendition of a MKIa Spitfire in a PC Combat Flight Simulator.
