War Wings was a game inspired by real pilots' combat experience during the Second World War, such as Pierre Clostermann (The Big Show), Major Boyington (Baa Baa Black Sheep), Geoffrey Wellum (First Light), Saburo Sakai (Samurai!) Cajus Bekker (Luftwaffe War Diaries) and Xu Hua Jiang (Footprints of Flying Horses) and it was launched in the August of 2017
The game not only had intense combat experience in the claustrophobic fighter cockpit but also the damp and hot tent life on central Pacific islands, cold and gloomy morning of Ardennes frontline airfield, as well as the relaxing moment of flying over vast tea plantations of Assam, India.
It was a multiplayer game that had 4vs4 online dogfight and allowed the player to experiment with missions, battles, to count ammo and so on.

You were able to find aircraft from various nations, massively built or not, playable in the game. War Wings had a very friendly and accessible control system thanks to features like "Jäger" pursuit assist and a situational awareness enhancing god-view mode. It also has very realistic damage calculation instead of just a Health Point bar, so a precise burst in the engine or pilot would bring down a plane instantly.
The game was discontinued on the 1st of January 2020 due to commercial and technical reasons. However, please feel free to leave to comments what you liked the most about the game!
