Operation August Storm - the Soviet invasion of Manchuria in August 1945 shortly before the JPN surrender.

Short but brutal - P63, Yak 9, La-5/7, IL2, Pe2 etc vs Ki-84, Ki-43, J2M, possibly A6M, N1K1...

Yeah, I think the Il-10 add-on (second one) covers this, and probably an influx of japanese planes. Since that add-on depends on how the first one sells...start coughing up the dough!

Last I heard from Ian Boys, the first (Pe-2) add-on was being delayed so they could include some stuff us Western folk might be more interested. Hopefully some PTO stuff in there . . .

Ha! Beat you to it. Recommended this campaign before 4.03 came out.

Seriously, it would be wonderful.

Would if I could but I can't, that is unless someone can help me get hold of AEP or FB Gold (I'm in UK)

La5FN/7 v Ki-84 would be an interesting matchup, they're both basically big engines with wings and cannons attached http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Don't delay...we want this now!!!

It will be interesting to see what the 96 mission static campaign is like too...

Nah, the delay is good. I am personally not too enthusiastic about paying $30 just for a flyable Russian twin engine bomber that I would probably fly once or twice, then forget about (I'm not a big fan of either twin engine bombers or Russian aircraft). Add in some Japanese or Allied aircraft, though, and I'm all over it.

I know it's a pain for those of you very anxious for the Pe-2, but it's definately better business sense to include something for everybody.
