OMG great news here, we'll have the Defieant in BOB!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
This is one of the strangest plane and one of my favourites. Even if they're not flyable it will be a pleasure to escort them over Dunkirk just to see how the German will react. Historically on that day I think the Defiant downed nearly 30 Germans with very few losses. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif After the first surprise however, that situation never occured again but still, quite impressing...
Damn I just can't wait.‚¬®Pleaaase make this one flyable! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Nice news buht were are the Flyable bombers?
ME109z : bah,
Hawk 75 : if flyable great it belone in FB like the Fokker D-21 and Fiat Cr-42/G-50 and Gladiator for the Fins,
Mistel : nice, buht not a must have
Ta-152 : there are so many fighters in this game buht its ok,
P-51 A/B/C/D : wy? like Ta-152,
Go-229 : not a must,
Spitfire : for Spit fans only , like Ta-152,
Fiat CR42 : great like Hawk 75,
Gladiator : Great like Hawk 75,
TU-3 SPB : mmm its a bomber buht not the one we are looking for. (to slow for online coops/campains),
I-185 : Prototype? oh my god this game expand to prototype war.
He-162 : jets and prototype`s , it was used in WW2 buht again its not the plane we need.
YP80 : ....... no.
BF/ME-110 : great good job make more of tham flyable,
Wat we are missing : Do17/215/217 , HS-129 , Ju88/188/288/388 , FW-189 , Blenheim , Ju52-3m , C47 , PE2/3 , Tu-2 , Sb-2m , Il4 , DB-3 , A-20 , B-25 etc etc (All flyable)
In ahter words we need more variation from Figter plane`s and give us bomber jocks some toy`s to.
We cant live forever wiht only the HE-111 / Ju-87 and Il-2!!!!!

So the Add on is very diapointed wiht one big plus and that is the Me-110.
I cant say i dont get it buht if it was possible i dont get it , (Buht than again i dont get the future ad-ons to)
Look CFS-3 was a big missteake from MS buht it had a wel balanced plane setup to play wiht.
And thats wat i`m missing in IL2/FB.
Its a great sim , fly`s like god , and very good playable online , only the plane setup is not ok.
Hope it improve soon and not see pic from a bomber that`s not going to make it.

love the game, but for a long time i have not understood why a sim reflecting the trials and tribulations on the Eastern Front has so many key planes missing or not on priority production, i mean most people wont even know what a 109z is never mind the fact that the only 2 conversions never flew!!!
This sim needs way more Russian bombers and liason types and endless axis types, never mind the ones that it is a crime not to have in such as the ju88, do17 etc but where is the flyable hs129 (the axis tankbuster, nigh on a german il2!!!) or for that matter the other henschels hs123 and even the 126 - some of us like flying recces!!! IT just seems a bit strange but then im not employed in a marketing department - ahhh bright spark..the spitfire, the p51...ahhh
All said its still a massively good game and when taken seriously is a fabulously immersive sim.

FB is not an Eastern Front-only sim. With the new Western and Pacific maps,those Allied planes aren't out of place at all......

Point taken and i am obviously more than happy that the game is being expanded but i find it a tad distracting and frustrating that the primary theatre does not have a fully realistic planeset, so ok spits did fly lend lease and obviously pacific theatre is extra but why ho229s!!!???. Still maybe one day we will get the full range of planes, i fly at jfc in our historical timeline war and its amazing that when you actualy try to recreate the eastern front scenarios the planeset is soooh limited, our allied bomber pilots have to fly tb3s until 1945, we have no suitable liason planes to do the required penalty/recce flights so us axis fliers have to use the pz11 (Rumanians flew a few), no pe2s, no flyable german/russian transports etc etc, it just shows the limitations up when you go for the full real recreations etc. Maybe im asking too much

Well we are getting a dynamic online campaign. Which means if the germans win lets say a 1945 campaign with their Doras then guess what?

Go-229
he-162
bf109z
ta-152
190/mistol
p-80

all have a rightful place in this sim. Does that mean we'll get a He P.1079B for a '47 campaign in the next add-on? Doubt it.

Well, there is a Pacific "sequel" of sorts in the works for FB which is being spearheaded by Luthier. He has ties with Oleg,and I would bet the Dauntlesses,Avengers,etc. will appear in this Pacific project. It's still very early in development.

With sincere, serious, and severe apologies to the dude/dudette who placed those Palm Tree Objects in that map...

We can Eliminate them with the Destruction Slider in the FMB to save framerates.

Poor map maker, it must feel bad to have your work useful for ubicom screenshots only--well at least today. In a year or two the average video may not even notice the palm trees. Future proof perhaps. But not today http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif

The palm trees they placed around the airfields are sweet though, and those few don't hurt framerates, as you can keep the airfield objects non~destroyed.
