IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 - Finally gets official TrackIR 6DOF support!

Okay WW2 combat flight sim fans, this is important news!

"2011 was a banner year for the simulation industry, especially for the flight sim community. Team Daidalos, the group chosen to officially continue development and support of the IL-2 legacy, has set 2012 off to a good start by releasing 4.11m for IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 that includes a number of features that bring the aging simulation up to and even exceeding today’s flight sim standards and expectations, including 6DoF views, improved enemy AI, updated engine management modeling, new flyable planes, new ground units, more flexible difficulty settings, and much more. Perhaps best of all, this patch, which includes a large number of new features in addition to bug fixes, is free!"
