BoontyBox may be a pain, but the add-on itself is wonderful. I have not had the chance yet to try out the Pe-2's fully, but as a dedicated off-liner, I am thrilled with the new artillery - all those lovely AA guns - and this will make mission building even more fun.

Thank you all involved! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

As a fellow dedicated off-liner, I agree 100% that 4.05 is wonderful. The Peshka is a fascinating light bomber. I am using all the versions. The AI is terrific---when I made a QMB low-level raid on an airfield, my squadron plastered all the choice targets despite being mobbed 16 to 12 by 109s. I like the visibility, maneuverability, and speed of the Pe-2. The more I use it, the more I like it and the Pe-3. Thanks much!!!!

Whilst I am no a big offliner I have to agree with your assesments.

Earlier today myself and BlitzPig_Void were testing the Pe-3bis in the ground attack role. Two Pe-3s will make for a bad day for any truck convoy...

Bumpski...but the Ju-88 is still a tour d' force!

The Ju 88 is the ultimate solution dive bomber---but the agile Pe is the sport model, and I like having some personal firepower, gun wise. I also like being able to give a 109 a hard time by pulling crazy turns on the deck. And, gosh, I just love those engine nacelle bomb bays! Now time to start whining for the Soviet Ju 88, the Tu-2---speed and two cannon for the pilot---ARGH!

Believe she does, ytareh, but I meant it was great to have a dive bomber armed to the teeth with cannon. The Pe-2 has some good pig stickers but cannon are so much nicer a way to tell the Messerschmitts how much you care!

Well worth the 18 bucks or so. Im looking forward to the IL-10 addon. I have not flown for the Russians this much since the original IL-2. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Greetings all,

I agree with HotSpace, well worth the money.
I'm not really a bomber pilot but this just might change my mind http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.giflol. NOT! But it is fun to fly. Download went without a hitch. No pop-ups,no nothing. Just made sure nothing was a-foot in my computer ( I'm no computer wizard )by using a utility tool program I have and bingo. Thankyou all involed in making this program. Well worth it. Best Regards

very Good addon a new level in il2.. now will wait for il-10 , it's a great moment for the eastern front but not care for the 1946 addon it will be over board... Now ...1950 would be a much better choice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif or once again a remake of the most old commun cockpits.

Anybody know if the Manchuria add-on will have a flyable Tu-2?
