I was just over at IL-2FB DB and was looking at the aircraft that are supposed to be in PF. If the list is correct it looks like we are going to get one hell of a sim! The site claims there are 15 Japanese aircraft being done by the PF team, not including existing FB AEP aircraft plus another 7 being done by 3rd parties.
There were a couple of oddities. A Ki-36 Ida but no Ki-51 Sonia, which I would have thought was a far more numerous and important aircraft.
And to continue in this nitpicking vein, among the various and interesting U.S types there was mention of a B-26B and B-26G. The G did not serve in the Pacific and I am pretty certain that only the the B-26 and B-26A served in the Pacific.
Of course there is a strong possibility that this list is a complete load of BS but it sure got me excited.

Althought my list may not be complete, it is based completely on what Luthier has posted in the forums and the pacific planes already in FB/AEP.

This thread is somewhat related to it.

I can tell you that there are some extensive errors and a lot of out of date information on that database.

None of it in a bad way. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Just don't put much weight in it except for non-PF 3rd party stuff. We can't tell them what's going on with PF work, other than what Luthier is allowed to release officially, so they can't keep it very accurate or change other mismarked stuff concerning what will eventually be in PF.

But you'll get one hell of a sim. Don't worry about that.
