we should put a flyable swordfish MKI and or II preferebly mkII if not both in the game. it is more then relevant as the swordfish sawlots of action adn was a great asset to the FAA. it even outlived its replacement, the albacore.

I think if not in FB/PF that one should be in BoB (add-ons), I think it also saw service in Greece early in the war (?).

What about the Barracuda? And we should have catapult launches for the ships that cary the planes.

Oh, and the PBY. Why we have a Pacific Theater game with (albeit limited) carrier ops w/out flyable PBY's is beyond me.

AAAAHHH! Not more yaks - we already have enough yaks in the game to support a Mongol village!

Actually, I'd love having the Swordfish €" as long as we had the Ark Royal too, and an AI Bismarck.

we already have the tirpitz, no need for the bismark, jut copy and rename it.

yea...would be nice to have x or y plane in FB...all types that saw any action at all in WWII would be better

but it aint gonna happen, ever, unless the game is ever open sourced, which doesnt seem likely


even if we could get any new plane, the most deserving, and needed, would be ANY (id KILL for a dewotine or bloch...heck, gimme LeO bombers!) french type (P36s dont count!), followed by I-tie jobs


bloody yaks n spits up the yazoo, as it is

But the Tirpitz had a different paintscheme than the Bismark. And there are subtle differences in the superstructure silhouette. And the engines in the Tirpitz had a different kind of steam return valve which meant the Bismark was 1.2% faster at flank speed in addition to the Bismark's tighter turn radius. The Tirpitz had a better coffee pot on the bridge, too, the one on the Bismark having been taken off a British steamer while the Tirpitz got hers as a present from the captain of the Graf Spee when that ship was in Argentina for refueling.

This is totally unacceptable, though to be fair I haven't fifnished checking the performance of all the ground objects and ships in the 4.02 patch, but I suspect there have been some disagreeable changes since 4.01.

I know the T-34-76 in the 3.04 patch was a more accurate version when compared to the one in 3.01, but it's penetration against the Tiger I at ranges under 1000m is too random in 4.02 considering that the rolled steel armor on the Tiger (this having to be just an average since we don't know which production version is the one in the game, but I'm assuming it to be a early-mid prod model given that it has the rubber rim wh eels and binocular gunsight, but no Fiefel air cleaners) was easily defeated by coating the the 76mm AP round with at least 5mm of pork grease, providing similar effects to that of a teflon coated FMJ pistol round.

Maybe they'll have those cheesy Spanish 109's available in the BOB game so we can recreate the movie! I'll make pilot skins with screencaps of all the main characters.

I want a 262 that can withstand more than 80% throttle. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Fly high.

Down under, no more then 80% throttle can be used but, at higher altitudes, the engine is better cooled and so, you can open up more http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
