Im bidding on the Forgotten Battles Expansion on Ebay but have just noticed a copy of Forgotten Battles Aces Expansion pack. Are the same? Do I need the former to play the latter?

They are NOT the same. FB was not labeled an expansion pack at all IIRC. If you want all of the commercial releases you'll have four boxes:
1.) IL2- Sturmovik
2.) IL2- Forgotten Battles
3.) Aces- Expansion pack
4.) Pacific fighters

Yes, that is the Ace's Expansion Pack that is for sale on Ebay. You MUST have IL2-Forgotten Battles to use the expansion pack.

If you already have FB and you don't get the winning bid for AEP on Ebay, you can always get AEP here:

I believe the UK is one of the international places they do ship to. Just FYI. (Edit: I just checked and they don't seem to ship to the UK.) Here's their info on international shipments:

Isn't there a UK-based EBGames or similar?

Also, it's still available from UBI, but at a higher price.

It turns out the the EB was taken over by GAME over here. Ive just checked out their site and they are offering it for 4.99. But they're out of stock. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

You will really like this expansion even if you don't intend to get the full series of IL2 games. It's worth the asking price just for the Gladiator alone! You won't be dissapointed.
You need Fotgotten Battles before you can run the Ace Expansion Pack (AEP).

It's a bit more expensive at Amazon

At Virgin Megastore it's even pricier!
