Note: This film utilises a significant quantity of Computer Generated Images (CGI). Aircraft portrayed in this film may not be entirely accurate and have been identified as closely as possible to real aircraft.
The Tupolev Tu-2S went into combat at the end of 1944.
The cockpit is not fully accurate.
What could be first taken for a Messerschmitt Bf 109 F or G ...
... is eventually the Messerschmitt Me 309 which flew only as prototype at the end of 1943 (four airframes built).
Archive footage used for this headquarters action.
Such picture taken by Germans were not in Allied hands before the end of the war.
Commando action shot with a green (or blue) background. A CGI rocket was later added but it’s unrealistic especially for the fins and the nozzle.
Such yellow nose is a little bit anachronistic for the second half of the Great Patriotic War !
Although subtly filmed, we can see this Lisunov Li-2 is unable to roll; it’s probably one of the survivors in a park or museum (Kiev ?).
