View Full Version : E3 and BOB....Let's speculate!

05-07-2006, 09:51 AM
OK, a couple of days left before E3 so what does Oleg have up his sleeve?

The Battle of Britain, while a great saga, may not sate the appetite for stuff to do and planes to fly that Oleg has created in us and we will be impatient waiting for the first(Med?)addon.

So here is what I think might come(I hope)with BOB:
Spanish Civil War
Phony War
Battle of Britain

Let's not get into what we will do if he only releases BOB by itself, DMs, FMs, etc.

What do you think(hope)we will get, in the way of scenarios and planes for our money?

A more complete N Africa/med theatre
Spanish civil war with MANY of the used airplanes
Early Finland again http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Gee, we don't even have info about BoB and already you want to know about the addons? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

But anyway, I too hope there is confirmation of early war theatres, like Poland or Spanish civil war.

These are all 'forgotten battles', and we all know crp planes rule. Surely, Bf-109B is best plane.

And no '100lb boost for this and that' forum spam if the planes have no supercharger!

I have it on good authority that a sim named 'Whirlwind over Cherbourg' will be unveiled.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

fact: we will all know a great deal more about BoB after this coming week....

I certainly hope so. Oleg and Luthier are there, by the sounds of it.

Any of our American board-members actually GOING to E3?

hey spinner - thanks for providing the link to 4.04m in your sig...that saved the day for me.

E3 is not open to the public - you must be an exhibitor/developer or a guest of theirs to be admitted - it is very well secured....

I'll be going and will be hunting down the 1C: Maddox stand if not just to try and shake Oleg Maddox by the hand for the years of entertainment he has provided me with

05-07-2006, 05:12 PM
heywooood, you're sure about that?

From what I know there is the buisiness mess and the open mess. At least it was that ay last year, when a friend of mine was there? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Well from where I sit the name should follow the logic of the programmers. And that of the planeset and the priority of which we have seen planes released.

That being said I believe the perfect title would be:

Blitz Out Of Berlin: '45 DD

rats !!!

I cannot wait to fly in one of (if not the?) most famous Air battle in history.

I will be protecting those bombers in my 109E3/E4 and also killing 109's in my Spit mk1 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

109's will not have the fuel problem in the game, so it will be a very even fight!

Can't wait. I still love Il2/FB so BOB is going to be a real treat.

05-08-2006, 11:45 AM
There will be only one map. It covers a huge portion of the english channel. If the scale of the map is correct and the 109 has historical endurance, it will have fuel problems, be sure http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Can't wait to fly a Do-17 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

am sure there will be at least 3 maps, covering the NorthEast (UK to Norway), South East to Holland/ Belgium and South West to France..

Also they will probably have Germany/Switzerland/Northern Spain in there for good measure too. May as well get a good full map of Western Europe in there rather than little bits.

05-08-2006, 01:11 PM
I will be at E3 this week. I will see if I can sneak in a peak before Oleg chases me off.
