Besides, what are we going to do with the C-47...?

I'll second that. I'm hopeful that Gibbage's awesome P-38 model will be added to FB soon.

I would take the P-38 too but it will be January or later before we get to fly them and only if we shell out the cash. By the way, I have no problem paying since FB has provided more sheer enjoyment than all of my other PC games combined.

I think your thinking of the Kawanishi N1K2 "George". The N1K2 and the Mitsubishi J2M "Jack" I think were the only two Japanese planes armed with 4 20mm guns in then wings.

I see that Gibbage's P38 is complete and sent to Oleg....let's hope it's in the January add-on....also the P63. This sim just keeps getting better and better....

I don' t want ONLY US planes, but it's little strange for Normandy and Bulge maps not having P38, but hey I can wait till january add on..

The slots for IAR 80's are in there for a flyable, you can select it and hit the fly, but the cockpit isn't in yet. So good bet it's in the patch.

You will get the best of both Worlds with FB soon guys,
Europe and the Pacific, thats pretty good, and the P38 Served in both, when you get the pay for add on later.

The Maps, well the Normandy map means you can recreate late War Europe, flying the Mustang.
The Pacific Map you can receate early to just before mid war Pacific, when the Allies where fighting the Zeros in P-40s, Brewsters, P39s, and Hurricanes.

Then recreate late War Pacific, like when Mustangs based on Okinawa tangled with the KI 84s over the Japanese home land.

The First Campaigns can be built for Europe and the Pacific with this new Add on.

ETO enthusiasts, can create the Allied Air Campaign over France prior and into D Day.

PTO enthusiasts can create the early to mid war Campaigns in the Pacific, like

The Defeat of the British in Maylaya and the fall of Singapore, the defeat of the Americans in the Phillipinnes, or the desperate fight put up by the Australian armed forces in New Guinea trying to halt the spread of the Japanese Empire through out the SW Pacific.

Yes its a pretty good package from 1C,
lots of potential.

Well done Oleg and Team !

I heard something about mid-november.

But I also thought the free and pay patches would come out simultaneously in January . .
