Perhaps the list isn't final? Maybe they'll never be included. Who knows?

my thoughts exactly

ju88
bf110
gibbages spitfire when it gets done http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
xantys falco and the swordfish isnt flyable what the focke

I dunno there should be no ai in a payware planes pack all flyable and if they charge us money as a full addon 20-30 we should get the b17 and condor ju88 bf110 pe3 and pe8 flyable in my opinion

even the curtis Hawk 75 isnt flyable the cockpit is almost exact as the p40 makes no sense

theres no new russian flyables in the pack either. p80 tho they should make the mig I 300 russias first jet which used the jumo me262 engines.

mig I 300

The CC-2 Aircraft Flies!

On 27 August, 1940, the first prototype was tested for 10 minutes over the Taliedo airfield by the great pilot, Mario De Bernardi. On 16 September that same year it was flown for another 5 minutes, thus undergoing the acceptance flight test in order that the second prototype was upgraded. The latter made its maiden flight on 11 April, 1941. On 30 November, 1941, at 2:47 pm, Mario De Bernardi and Ing. Giovanni Pedace flew the second prototype on an official flight from the airport of Milan Linate and that of Rome Guidonia. After flying over Pisa, they landed at 4:58 pm after covering 475.554 km at the average speed of 217.147 km/h. According to the pilot's wish, the afterburner was never actuated in order to save fuel

Ducted fan with three rotors, of which two are rotating, and one is fixed; burners provide 700 kg thrust; engine of the compressor, 900 hp Isotta Fraschini L. 121/R.C. 40; length, 12.10 m; height, 4.70 m; span, 14.63 m; wing area, 36 sq m; weight empty, 3,640 kg; total weight, 4,217 kg; useful load, 577 kg; maximum speed at an altitude of 3,000 m without burner, 325 km/h; maximum speed at an altitude of 3,000 m with burner, 359.5 km/h; climb, 1,000 m in 9 min. (with burner); maximum altitude attained in the course of acceptance flight tests, 4,000 m.


If they have the me262 and p80 I think other nations should have an early jet as well to make it a balanced sim, britians vampire or the meteor russias mig I 300 which used the jumo engines italy's CC-2 which was flyable in the early 40's. Just my thoughts anyways and would help us who host even plane sets and historically accurate plane sets

Not the model that is currently being done. The new BoB sim uses a completely new engine....

that makes no sense. why would the Tempset be in a BoB sim. Bob is the begining of the summer of 1940 to the fall of 1940. the tempset wasnt made till much later.

" Bob is the begining of the summer of 1940 to the fall of 1940. "

Yes, you're right. But a sim without a Focke-Wulf is not a sim!

BOB is a jumping off point. it wont be just a few months long time frame. that would be a waste. no real fun planes at beginning. the idea is a different front of the war so you can add all the british planes. and american. come on guys how many spits and 109s were in the battle of britain? just the first ones. bob will have typhoons and tempests and no not the one being modelled now that wont ever be released in FB. an all new one for a new game. with better graphics better sound better damage models.

RedDeth I really hope you are right, like I said in a previous post, the time frame being covered in BoB is my biggest concern. Flying 109E's against Spitfire I's and II's will get boring REAL fast (unless you are into bomber stuff). One of the best parts about FB is flying in the different time periods.

But judging from some of the other posts (like Owl_z's and Mikey's{no offense meant}) one certainly gets the impression that the new sim will only cover the BoB time period.

I hope you are right though. Everything else sounds great, but this really concerns me and I think it would be a poor marketing/financial decision for 1C/Maddox. I hope we get more details/clarification soon.
