    All i know about the patch is that its called 4.09 & that it will include slovakia & Bessarabia maps.

    There is a very slight possibility of a couple of new planes being added that have been seen before, but not added to the sim, the fokker DXXI & Avia B-534.

    not sure of any bug fixes, but there are bound to be some. Just keep visiting the forums often & there should be a couple of news items shortly etc.

    The patch will also include a nice Solomon Islands map, the F4U-1, the F4U-4, the P-61, the P-47N, the B-26 and the A-26! What? Time for my medication again?

    I can dream, can't I?

    Since every newcomer now asks for a flyable B-17 and B-29, Oleg decided to put the SoW project on hold for another year and develop one more IL-2 add-on: "IL-2: Aleutians to Atoms." Follow the career of Sergei, the American-born son of a Russian immigrant family, as he first joins the RAF as a Spitfire pilot and later enlists in the US Army Air Force, trains to be a bomber pilot in Oklahoma, and reports for duty in as a B-17 pilot in Alaska. His adventures take him to hotspots across the globe. After briefly serving as a test pilot for radical new aircraft designs, he returns to combat as a B-29 pilot when Japan refuses to surrender following the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bomb drops.

    My source says that there will be some new maps (the Solomons?), at least one flyable torpedo bomber, a famous aiarcraft carrier, and the P-55 Ascender. This was supposed to be a surprise ... sorry if I spoiled it.

    Well if your not pulling our leg here then Im sorry to tell you that you spoiled it big time! LOL. Because this is the very first time I heard such news. Far as I knew only two new maps and some bug fixes. No planes. Dont play with our emotions man! Some here are not very stable.

    Whats so wrong with the game being done? Its done. Its had waaay more patches than anyone expected and despite the fact that the game engine is now ancient in computer terms its still belting out countless multiplayer games and tournaments every day and week. Not really dead at all.
