Hello. I really enjoy Forgotten Battles and the Ace Expansion Pack and I have heard about another sim made by the same company called Battle of Britain. Now Pacific Fighters has been announced and I am very confused. Is Maddox games making two games at once? Is the Battle of Britian acually a expansion? What is this BOE Battle of Europe thing I have heard about? What do you know about this? I am so confused. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Battle over Europe is a campaign based expansion pack for FB/AEP (you BoE owners correct me if I'm wrong) that is oriented around missions and skins. There are no new planes in BoE, it is an addon to FB/AEP only.

Battle of Britain is a new game completely from 1C/Maddox but will not be out until 2005 sometime. It is a brand new flight sim and is not based directly on FB/AEP. Anything else with BoB or Battle of Britain out there right now is most certainly a different game and not related to 1C/Maddox.

Pacific Fighters is a spin off of AEP. It will be the same game more or less, but may or may not be compatible with AEP. It will be like AEP for the pacific if you will, and will be tweaked probably as far as the IL2/FB/AEP engine can go. People are not sure if it will work with AEP and so it might end up being a stand alone game in between AEP and the new BoB scheduled for 2005.

Pacific Fighters is news to me! I was expecting something though after that forum teaser...

It seems that 1C Maddox is making two games at once which is hard to believe...

"Battle for Europe" is not to be confused with "Battle of Britain". Battle for Europe is a retail campaign addon that adds tons of missions and skins for American, German, and British aircraft. Battle of Britain is the sequel to IL-2 FB and will be released next year some time.
