Can someone plz tell me if we'll get planes like f-4u and p-38/51 in the next patch(s) or will we have to buy a new expansion? Thanks you

All new aircraft will be in an add-on. If this is a pay add-on or not is not yet known. If it is a pay add-on, then the modelers who worked so hard would get paid as well. Also, from what I have seen, it would include 20+ new flyable aircraft, and a few new maps! I would say that earns my 19.95 it its a paid add-on http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Oleg and Ubi will one day announce there choice, and when it will be released.


I am now accepting donations to help get the PBY flyable.

it would seem we get a new map along with some new planes. So far, there has only been SPECULATION wheter or not this is a paid addon.

I'm a crappy pilot, but one hell of a shot.

Gib, i'm glad to hear that if 3rd party planes are included in pay add-on the modellers will be paid.

Any 3rd party modellers were paid for his work in the FB plane set?

How much is the add-on going to cost. I just spent $25 on the game?

Well $25 is a very good price. I paid $49.99 for it and that was a good price around here.

The expansion should be priced like an expansion pack. Its considerably less content than the game itself...so it should be cheaper. Its hard to say what the pricing point will be however.

The fate of this add-on is sitting in a manilla folder on some UBI marketing exec's desk. When he/she decides what to do, then we'll have it.

Oleg said right here in these forums that the P-51 will be in a free add-on. Cant speak for the rest but if it is a pay for add-on then all the modelers who worked so hard and long should see some profits as well IMHO. (and no Im not a modeler) /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I don't think it will ba a paid Addon, bvut if it will be, for sure 20 Bucks won't be too much.
I donb't think it will be a paid addon, cuz at this moment , things will get to complicated with paing the #rd party modelers, since there wasn't any previous agreement betwen them and oleg...
The most possible variant(now it's just a speculation) is that some of the planes (IAR80/81, Bf110, Go229, Zero,P-63, P-80, Catalina, and most of the planes that are NOW ready, will be released in a free addon(to keep our mouths shut) and next, more planes(Do335,Corsair, Tempest...) will be released in a paid addon.
Seems kinda logical and eficient to me...

A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'
landing is one after which they can use the plane again<center>
