With the release of Rise of Flight in Russia last week on May 7, 2009, the official website has gotten an entirely Russian makeover (English version coming soon hopefully).  Also, for the first time since the "Gennadich" days, there's an official forum in both Russian and English (how-to on changing the forum language to English thanks to WWSandMan).

There's also been a flurry of activity on the forums, particularly on Sukhoi (Russian) and SimHQ.  Along with all the discussion and hubbub, there's been a ton of screenshots posted, including the first fan-made video of the release thanks to =FB= Weeper:
For more recent videos, also be sure to check out the two multiplayer beta test videos from [RS] Wedge: here and here.

So when's the US and worldwide release?  According to the official blog (which since the website makeover is down for construction) the US and worldwide release is due in about a month.  So if all goes well, the rest of the world will get to play sometime in June 2009.

In the meantime, we can enjoy the unrestrained outpouring of screenshots from the official Russian release!
