If the RAF Meteor jet had been German,US or Russian....would it have been included in this sim by now??

Ok...it never flew on the Russian front....but this applies to many aircraft included in FB.

More than one RAF Squadron flew this aircraft and it did about 12 months operational service in WW2.
It was fast enough to intercept and down V1 flying bombs attacking London that were often beyond the capability of piston-engined aircraft.It later participated in ground attacks after D-Day in Europe.

Also...if the Spitfire had been German,US or Russian,would it have been included by now??...ok I know that the Spitfire will be in the next add-on but that is very late in the day.And the number of Spitfires that served on the Russian Front were in their 100s.

well we did give both sides the engines http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif and it did well in the Mig 15 didn't it..........along with a whole pile of American junk...models of which escape me, but it was their first jet engine.

I do agree with car guy, this game was never about jets and that is gonna be the death knell of it, Its ok saying you have a choice to use and select the 262 and that other abomination we are getting, but end of the day, if its in the games online we don't have a lot of choice, you either join a game and get stuck with getting wasted by something that far out powers you and is out of context, which it is, if it wasnt it would have been used during the war, or you don't play..... Its alright Oleg using FB as a test bed for his future dreams, but as i have said before I personally feel its gonna be to the detriment of the game play.......... your gonna get peeps flying jets never used and out of context to the era, this game was about piston fighters, not jets, what we gonna get in BofB?
suppose there gonna slip a salamander in for the hell of it, heading the CFS way http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Thing is...if someone models a Meteor it would definately fit more historically in than the P-80 would. Even so, I'm totally infavor of the P-80. I love the fact that I can now build some singleplayer or co-op missions where you have high performance prop planes like the Ta-152, the FW190D9, the Tempest V, the La-7, and the Spitfire XIV (and hopefully more like the P-47N show up) competing against the early jet fighters like the Me-262, the Gotha flying wing, and the P-80. Equally fun would be to have the Meteor. This is why I'm interested in the early jets...I am as much interested in them as the late war prop fighters and bombers as well as whatever else we can get in the earlier war (like the P-51B, the A-36, and the Spitfire V).

This game is about simulating a period of history that essentially goes from 1941 to 1945 and that features as much historical grittyness as possible while airing on a few historical what-ifs. The power with AEP will be with the mission designers - the possibilities are growing with each new plane.

Ahhhhhhhhh quit yer bellyachin!!!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-mad.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif
Be glad you have the planes we have. There are enough rooms in HL to get the server you want. You never have to see a P-80 if you dont want one with the mission builder....and like the Chimpster said..... You Brits have the next sim...from the name on down so suck it up and wait yer turn!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif I can see it now....... If Oleg came out with a sim called, for trolls sake http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif "The Mighty Eigth: Battle Over Europe" or something like that you guys would be frothing at the mouth and popping viens in yer heads!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif Besides.... I betcha we get a Meteor before it's all over!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif At least I sure hope so because that would be sooooo schweeeet!!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif The Spit is coming...and I hope before it's all said and done we get at least 3 variations of it... ihopeihopeihope..... IMO the Meteor, The Corsair, and some of the currently AI planes as flyables like the 110, the 202, the Morko Morane......maybe a Cat....Hell or Wild...either one would be nice.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif would round out FB. It would be GREAT if FB could transition into a Korean era sim....with a few Migs and an F-86 and some maps. It would be nice. People keep saying that FB is an Eastern Front sim....IT ISNOT!!!! IL2 was the Eastern Front sim.... FB is a WW2 sim. There was a post a while back where we were told explicitly that FB would go into areas where the sim had not been previously...... most of us read that as Go west young man...go west. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

This has been an enjoyable thread. I do know if we get the Meteor the 262 will become one of my faves. It'll be a blast to finally fly rings around an opponent.
