The Soviet Air Force can be seen overhead in the Red Army missions "Their Land, Their Blood " and "Blood & Iron". In "Their Land, Their Blood" Soviet Yak-9's can be seen flying overhead, most prominently when the player gets on the back of a T-34 tank towards the end of the mission. Also, at the end of the mission Soviet planes bomb and strafe a column of fleeing German tanks and infantry. Following "Their Land, Their Blood," the Soviet Air Force appears in "Blood & Iron" constantly overhead. When the player reaches near the end of the mission several Yak-9's will strafe German positions with rockets just in front of the train station.
The Soviet Air Force makes a brief appearance in the missions "Executive Order" and "Crash Site". In "Executive Order" several MiG-17s can be seen streaking over the Baikonur Cosmodrome when the player surveys the Cosmodrome for Weaver. The Soviet Air Force doesn't make any other appearances until the level "Crash Site" when the player investigates the crash of a Soviet Air Force cargo plane ferrying Nova 6.
