    Name for the new release something like: “TFS Tobruk” ?

    TFS Tobruk
    Add on for IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover BLITZ

    Would make more sense than for example IL-2 Sturmovik: Tobruk add on for IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover BLITZ

    Let’s face it thanks to TFS the BLITZ version was released for free and is the sim still in development. And it is strange to name a flight sim after an aircraft that is not included in the sim. The IL-2 was added in the name back in 2011 to emphasize it was the succesor of IL-2. So now new developers new name, makes sense?

    Difficult 1C will not remove the ™ "IL-2 Sturmovik" of game name.

    OM original plan was use "Storm of Wars: Battle of...." for this game that became "IL-2Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover", but the marketing of "IL-2 Strumovik" prevail, same happens in (777) IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of ... (Stalingrad, Moscow, Kuban, Bodenplatte).

    Opera Resume: Is the publisher who determine product name, not developers.

    Storm of War BoB, that was a time ago, on the 1C Banana forum. Storm of War Battle of Moscow was supposed to be the succesor, we all know how that went.

    Anyway now we have 3 sim series with the same name. Newcomers might confuse Tobruk as an addition in the BoX series.

    Does this mean TFS is free to pick a name? Call it just v5.00 would make it outdated after the first following patch.

    I'm betting "Sands of Tobruk" or "Siege of Tobruk" most likely the fist because it has something to do with the terrain as does "Cliffs of Dover"

    "Skies of Tobruk" seem more appropriate. We will be fighting in the air, won’t we?

    TF 5.0 does have a name... but that can only be officially announced by 1C.
