Details on the modes featured inthe game are as follows:Dog FightDog fight is a traditional free-for-all mode.After selecting initial game settings including the number ofplayers, difficulty level, planes, game play map, time and pointlimit, players can engage in aerial dogfights earning points forevery downed enemy aircraft. The winner is the first pilot to reachthe point limit first or the pilot with the most points when theallotted time runs out.Team Dog FightAfter selecting initial game settings, players are divided intotwo teams for Team Dog Fight. Like Dog fight, points are earned forevery downed aircraft in the enemys team. The winner is theteam that reaches the point limit first or has the most points whenthe allotted time runs out.StrikeIn Strike, teams attempt to destroy as many of the enemysground targets as possible, while also defending their own troops.The winner is the team with either the most points when the timerruns out, the team that reaches the points limit first or the teamwho wipes out all of their opponents ground targets. Pointsare awarded for both aerial and ground targets, although groundtargets are worth more points than those in the air.Capture the AirfieldIn Capture the Airfield, players attempt to capture and hold asmany opposition airfields as possible.
An airfield is consideredcaptured once a player lands and spends a specified amount of timeon the ground without being destroyed. All airfields in this modeat the beginning of the game are considered neutral, so securingairfields quickly is crucial. Each team is granted a specifiednumber of team tickets at the beginning of the game.
Each time aplayer re-spawns, one team ticket is used up. Once a team has notickets left, it cannot return to the battlefield.
The teamcontrolling the lowest number of airfields suffers a penalty oftheir ticket pool being depleted as time goes. The bigger thisdisadvantage, the quicker the ticket pool is depleted.
The winneris the team that has the most tickets left either at the end of thematch or when an enemy team loses all tickets and planes.IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey gives players theopportunity to participate in the most famous confrontations of theWWII era piloting fighters, battle planes or heavy bombers across arange of daring and action-packed missions.
