Will the B-17 be flyable (in future)?

I can`t see it not happening. It just may take Olegg a while. He got it happening beautifully in the HE111. We have all the ref material. My guess is when it`s done it`ll be more popular (and better to experience) than B17 flying fortess 2 that came out a while back.

next commercial addon I guess, but who knows, maybe we're lucky and get some bombers (enough fighters available)

Wow! Does the ground in CFS3 really look THAT bad???
Damn! That's even worse than I thought.

P.S: Oooooohhh!!! My first encounter with the word filter, how exciting. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Dex, the evil CFS3 man /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif


Well I would expect the B-17 not to be flyable for awhile, even as a purchased add-on. Because in a real good flight sim game like IL2FB, it takes allot of work to model cockpits and gun positions, not to mention FM and DM correctly.

I would expect the CFS3 B-17 is comparable to the B-17 in BF1942, although they probably did a little better job in BF1942 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Well, maybe we have the chance of getting another 4 engine German bomber flyable before we get the B-17. It's modelled by Kamikaze (now know as G3SVA_BigK). Here are a few links to the dev updates he did of the outside and the inside models. He is still working on the inside models, but the plane itself is already with Oleg, and sorry that everything but the pics is in German.
