Because no third party modeler has ever made one. Just like the B-24 and the Halifax.

Damnation!! We have the Tirpitz, but no Lanc to kill it??????????

And if BoB (if I remember what I read before correctly) will only span May-September 1940 (i.e. the Battle of Britain timeframe), then how the heck is the Lancaster gonna make it in?? It didn't fly operationally until 1942!!!!!

whit ye looking at, ya big jessie?!?!

If you haven't noticed already IL2 focuses mostly on the eastern front. Though theres planes worldwide most of the single player missions and maps focus on that part of the global conflict. BoB will start out as the battle of britain and focus more on the British German conflict with some American French and Italian intervention as the war progressed. I'm sure you'll get your Lanc there.

I was kind of hoping they would do what they did with IL2:FB.

Make the basic game then expand upon that. After all, IL2's now make up a minority of the flyable planes in the game. And why make this fantastic new game engine when your only gonna have a limited selection of aircraft. If BoB is only gonna be summer 1940 were only going to see a very limited selection of planes, especially on the British side. There will be no Mustangs, P47's, P38's...I can't see the US audience buying into it.

I dont want to fly a Spitfire Mk1 anyway, I want an MK XIV or Mk VIII.

Okay, Okay, so I'm a little off on my BoB history, July-October, wonderful. I don't really see how that will change the fact that we aint getting the Lancaster in there, seeing as how it didn't fly it's first op till, what, May 1942??

The only expansions I know of for BoB are backwards expansions, based on the Polish campaign, and then the Battle of France. A title of "Blitzkrieg" has been pencilled in for this expansion. It's not definate it's getting in, but it's being worked on.

I don't know of any plans to expand BoB forwards past October 1940. And honestly, I see no reason for it. More planes DOES NOT a better game make!!! Wouldn't you rather have as perfect a flight model and damage model as possible for a few planes, than have a plethora of flyables with questionable characteristics?

What I'd love to see is expansion packs which push the timeline back, like the early war Poland and France stuff. I'd like to see the Galkhin Gol(sp?) conflict in there, and a Spanish Civil War expansion, or even a seperate game for that!!

To be honest, I would cream my pants if 1C decided to make a WWI sim!!!!

Eh? It didn't stop an American audience "buying into" Il-2 when there were no US planes in it so why should it be any different for BoB?

Look on the bright side - there won't be 30 page whines about .50s for BoB.

Cheers,
Norris

Other rumors have it that BoB will be a spring board to expansions that would eventually cover the entire western front. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

It was in an interview about 6 months ago with some magazine, in which Oleg was asked about plans for BoB. Someone translated it and posted it but I am not sure who.

Not right away.

My guess is that Oleg is going to do this:

1) Release BoB and provided that it does well expand from there (probably free patches to bring it to 1941 - Oleg has mentioned in an interview that the FW190A would likely be flyable after release)
2) Release the Mediteranian theater
3) Release a 1943-45 Western Europe theater
4) Go back to the Eastern Front and do it like never before

So we'll have our share of Western Europe and Oleg has mentioned that he would definately return to the Eastern Front...and we'll no doubt see some amazing things come from that sim provided that all goes well and nothing seriously changes to divert from the overall plan.
