hello there!
anyone knows if someone is workin' on those great pacific carrier-based machines like wildcat, hellcat, corsair, dauntless, devastator, avenger, val, betty and so on... i mean it would be kinda nice to get some of this stuff. of course carriers would be also needed in that case as well as some historical maps line new guinea and filipines.
i realize it demands alot of work. i'm only wandering if it's possible to get a complex pacific theatre with maps, campaigns, carriers and their deadly beauties onboard like i mentioned above.
maybe it would be an entire different product?
i know that this GREAT FB team is working on AEP and BOB, but perhaps pacific is their next "target" ? anyone knows something about that?
btw. il2fb is just outstanding as we all know, that's why i'm thinking about pacific theatre upon its engine!

A Pacific product is currently in development.

My understanding is that it will be a standalone featuring the Pacific theatre, including many new planes, maps, and carrier ops, as well as retaining the material that is currently in FB.

Some planes already are finished for FB (B-239, P-39, A6M, Ki-84...). I think I heard someone is making Dauntless, but not sure. For the Corsair, you can see information here:

these FB pacific planes are cool indeed, however it's difficult to set some "realistic" fights, because of production dates of these planes, ex. it would be weird to fight brewster when flying a6m5 produced in 1943, especially that this brewster isn't actually "buffalo" pacific version. also fights against p40 and p39 could be inaccurate.
i just can't wait to see "pacific" expansion or something like that, lookin' forward to it! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
