Ok.. is it FB? Is it PF? I know the forum says Pacific Fighters.. but..... we have Moscow... we got France.... We have desert... we have Finland.... For some reason the name PF sticks in my craw.... go figure.. I mean it was great for PF.. but the sim as a whole is so much more.... PF doesnt seem to do it justice... so what would you name this sim if you had to name the fully merged version? What would you call it.... ? I call it Forgotten Battles 4.xx when I am trying to sell someone on it....

FB+Aces+PF? :P

IL2FB or Forgotten Battles is the way I always refer to the whole series.

I'm nostalgic. It's always IL2 for me, until we have a new engine.

I mostly call it FB. But it is far from forgotten.

None of the names so far do it justice.

Something pompous is in order, like:

WW2 Combat simulator
World (Air) War II
Airforces of WW2
WW2-Air

(just few ideas)

I would call it IL2 Sturmovik 4.02.

First of all,Russian planes are the best and LOD/dot system is very disadvantageous for USAAF/LW.

I guess they just want to promote PF more,so if one hears bout it he won`t be searching for FB/AEP but for PF.When one gets PF he will be informed there are other games to merge.

Still calling it Il2. It could be called Bench Mark Combat Sim but then people would reduce it to BM.

Tend to call it Sturmovik, old habits die hard, although I haven't flown one for a while.

Definatley IL2. Remember the conversation just about the pronounciation? you say 'ill 2' and I say 'eye ell two'.....

No confusion over saying Pacific Fighters. Its no fun.

It just defaults to IL2 for me.

IL2=Everything.

PF could be mistaken to just meaning pacific fighters standalone.

I see the new official name as:

From the day one I have called this sim a "Stormovik". Not Sthurmovik or... how do you write it in english...

In WWII our soldiers (Finns) called the the IL-2 just STORMOVIK. All the (rare nowadays) veterans talk about STORMOVIKS. As far as I have seen all the finnish books and other writings used to write STORMOVIK till the beginning of the last decade. After that you can see "Sthurmovik" instead the original Finnish way.

I`m nostalgic and call this sim as a whole just "Stormovik"!

Blaa blaa blaa,

My pet name for it has become Forgotten Physics.

More and more, I come to expect completely ridiculous outcomes for every sortie. Looks great, but is frustrating and unsatisfying to play.

I'm like many other members here and call it IL-2. I've been playing since the multiplayer demo and probably won't change either. I agree that until the new engine, the whole series is just IL-2.
