Why does Gamestop have the cover but the UBI site doesn't ? Is this really the actual cover ?? They could have thrown us a bone and shown it to us at the same time.

That's it another sign of anti-American bias !! I'll boycott this game . http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Now Yellownet the B-25 is confirmed I think, so the mention of the A-20 is a good thing since its another twin engine plane http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

I don't find it troubling. I think it's established the B-25 will be in PF considering we already have it in FB, and we've seen Dev. Updates(a while back) showing the cockpit. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

WHo is really surprised to see a jap shooting down an american on the box? not me

----------------------------

This interview was on Nat'l Public Radio (npr) in mid January.
A female was interviewing Marine Corps General Reinwald
about a Boy Scout visit to his base.
She was told the Boy Scouts were to be taught about guns.
She asked, "But you are equiping them to be violent killers." The General replied,
"Well you're equiped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?"
The radio went silent and the interview ended. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Anyhow, spiraling back down from my cloud...

I don't see anything wrong with an Imperial plane knocking down a US plane. We Americans were pounded across the Pacific for over a year before the tide began to turn.

Also, it's an interesting selling tool, since it has a different perspective on the conflict. Most box covers feature the heroic American fighter blasting faceless "Huns" or "Japs" out of the sky. It's nice to see something contrary to the typical picture.

I really fail to understand those people who keep worrying that this very well known and widely used plane or that very well known and widely used plane won't be included in the game, flyable or otherwise. Can anyone point me to ANOTHER simulation that has a TB-3 I-16 carrier FLYABLE? I don't think so...We'll probably spend the rest of our lives just trying out new planes that'll ship with PF... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif
