Now you guys are allowed to ask for a release date because now there is going to be a very solid date starting to emerge in the next few days.

Good news. Now maybe Oleg will get to spend some more time with his kid, and he and the team can get a little sleep in before the inevitable whining.

Thanks Maddox Games in advance for the hard work and long hours. I'm looking forward to slamming myself repeatedly into the fantail of the USS Lexington. "Blotto's next down the 'chute. Roger, crash crews standby, clear the LSO platform... and the aft AAA positions... ah, on second thought let's just rig for foul weather ops and wait for the noise to quiet down."

Which is also the same as the last mentioned release dates: october 21./22.

I'm curious... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

It's GOLD so why can't we have some pictures of the maps, NOW?

I've always been amazed by the IL2 series developers. They just seem to
http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif hesitatingly put up everything.

The aircraft list is impressive, but nuttin' mentioned about the sim program itself.

Carriers will warm the blood of most everyone for a couple weeks. All the planes will probably sound the same...

I'd still love to hear a SPIT sound like a SPIT.

The Rowan's BOB Spit flybys are awesome.

Anyway, I think it's about time 1C:Maddox and/or UbiSoft put out some comprehensive information about the PF. That is if they want some of my $dinero.
