Not unless AliandtII can get it in on time, which I doubt, it's a lot to model. We're all trying to help.

Why don't we ask to Oleg if is possible to expand a bit the time for receive new planes for FB? Would be great because we could add more AI and flyable (specially) airplanes...

They already have...through till middle of 2004. So there is hope yet for a patch to the addon with new planes.

Now that I've seen VonKlugermon's pictures on General Discussion about his flight with the 17, I have come to think that Forgotten Battles just wouldn't be complete if the Fortress wouldn't get modelled completely, includign all gunner positions and bomb sight.

Let the big girl fly!

I know it will be next to impossible but the only way the Norden will be close to being correct is to have it done the same as the Norden in B17 Flying Fortress "The Mighty 8th". And Oleg would have to get in contact with Joe Worsley who developed it for B17 with the Wayward group that worked with Microprose. He has all the data for the Norden and I have Joe's email address.

I'd like to see it modelled too but it's unlikely it will ever get done - it's just too much work. Look how long we waited for the He-111 and are still waiting for the Bf110, I think some people on these forums expect things to be done overnight.

B17 The Mighty Eight has an excellent B17 model, which is really all the game is, except you can build your own missions. Building something like that must have taken 100s if not 1000s of man hours. If 1C ever did a B17 to rival that one it would probably be well over 40MB.

Delaying the add-on would be benificial to allow the many modelers to complete their tasks. Again, being a fan of the tactical ground attack missions, variety to this type would be a fantastic addition. There are many early war models I'd love to be able to purchase.
