OK, haven't been on the forums in months, last time here rumors were flying about combined patches being available on disk. When I went to the shopping area I see a downloadable Ultimate series but no disk set. Does this version have all the updates ? Is it available hard copy, I only have dialup, it would take days to download ! There was a write up about a combined version in Flight Journal that pointed me here but I'm not seeing it !

It'll only put you at version 4.04, pre Pe-2. You'll need to buy Pe-2 (4.05) separately from Ubi.com if you want the lastest version.

Il2 complete edition DVD gets you to 4.04m right out of the box, which is very, very nice.

After that you will need to buy the Pe-2 add-on. It includes gobs of ground objects, as well as giving a flyable:

Pe2 serries 1
Pe2 84 serries
Pe2 110 serries
Pe2 359 serries
Pe3 serries 1
Pe3 bis (Night Fighter)

That brings you up to par with everyone else. There are two more add-ons, 4.06 and 4.07. Each one is a payed add on. 4.06 is the Manchuria add on. It will add the following:

<span class="ev_code_GREEN">Maps:</span>
Burma
Manchuria
Korea
<span class="ev_code_GREEN">Planes:</span>
A5M Claude (AI)
Ki27 Nate
Ki21 Sally (AI)
IL 10
B6N Jill (AI)
Ki43 Oscar II
N1K2 George
J2M5
A20 C Havoc
More Ground objects too.

After that, 4.07 is the fictional "What if" planeset. It will include:

Arado 234
TA 183
Mig 9
Yak 15
Lagg 3RD
I 250

As well as a bunch of new ground objects.

Wow
Lots more to add, I just got IL-2 about two weeks ago.

I have to ask is PE-2 "Pacific Edition"?

Ummm...

Pe-2 works with the merged game (Forgotten Battles + Aces Expansion Pack + Pacific Fighters, then you add Pe-2 Expansion Pack onto 4.04m), if that's what you mean.

Will it be possible to skip 4.05 and load 4.06 directly into 4.04m? I would do anything to avoid Boonty! I would really like 4.06, as I understand there are some significant bug/flight model corrections, not to mention the Burma map. But, will a CD or DVD of it be available to buy and have, or will it again be download only? If so, I may stop at 4.04m.

Patches are sequential, as always. If you want 4.06, you will have to have ALL previous patches, 4.05 included. As far as Boonty, it is easily removeable in 4.05. I'm afraid part of the delay with 4.06 is trying to "improve" Boonty.
