Do anybody know if there will be a spitfire included in a future patch or maybe in the upcomming expansion? it's my favorite plane of all time, and i know that many other think that to.

I heard that one was being worked on, but the modeller, after viewing that much ugliness for long periods of time, went blind.

I don't know how true that is.

The should focus on modeling our beloved Spitfire instead of giving us more jets. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Well there is this one:

Thats a Spitfire IXe under development. The Mark V is apparently in the expansion pack itself and the IXc, IXe, and XIV Spitfire marks are nearly completed. There's also the possibility of plenty of other models as well...

Do a search of the forums...Spitfire topics are everywhere.

I'm usually not interested in Spits much, but I'm reading a book called Woodbine Red Leader right now, by a pilot from the Med theater who flew Spits in the USAAF in WWII. They flew the Spit V at first but got some Spit IXs later, then they got the Mustangs they were supposed to have had all along. The pilots called the mark IX "the Big Hammer" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif Now I am looking forward to flying both the V and the IX marks.

From what I read, many pilots who flew them called the mark V a "baby Spit", but also many thought it overall the best Spitfire mark. Now I just may have the chance to compare and contrast the baby Spit with the Big Hammer. That's just too d@mn cool.

what a lame reason. you should fly a plane because you like it not because someone else flew it.

^^^^ wtf? Dude, the guy is intrested in flying the spitfire now because some of his Heros from WW2 flew the plane. He wants to emulate that group of pilots of the USAAF. How is that a lame reason to fly the spit?

This entire game is about emulating brave men who flew in combat 60 years ago.

He can fly whatever he wants for whatever reason/s he has.

Now you owe me 15 seconds of your life for reading and responding to your lame post.
