Great stuff! Its amazing what they've done. Detailed but not too gaudy http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The breifings are excellent and the missions are well structured. Runs great too once you substitute the 4.04 exe's

In the the second mission I followed my leader to the target area (supply convoy, soldiers running everywhere). My rockets gone, I made one more run and pulled up in a zoom to see a Storch creeping along over the trees.
For the next few minutes I was playing cat and mouse with it, making high speed passes and using only the minimum of rounds.

Suddenly tracers were passing just over my cockpit. A 109F had appeard out of nowhere. I broke and we both rolled into each other in a tight sisscor. I chopped the throttle and he broke downwards right across my nose. I fired out of instinct and he exploded in my face.
At that moment my engine stopped dead http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Silence.

Looking for landmarks and franticly comparing to my map, I realised I might just have enough height to cross the lines. I managed it, but only just. Making a belly landing on a frozen river. Just within sight of a trio of T-34's.

Phew!

I haven't enjoyed one like this for a long time. The trick is to delete the crappy skins that come with the addon and replace them in FMB with your own before you begin. Thats the only gripe I can think of. Well worth the tenner!
