And i saw Battle over Europe just sitting there on the flight sim shelf... well you know i picked it up and bought it straight away without hesitation!! (for 19.99)

I didnt even know this addon for FB existed!!

What can you guys tell me about it please? it looks cool on the cover etc and i know its made by just flight with the missions/campaigns written by IL-2 staff but i dont know alot about it other than that... 2 hours ago i didnt even know it existed :O

Inside the case theres a booklet which says just flight also made Barbarossa for IL-2... my oh my i never knew that either... why is there so very little mention of these addons here and at the IL-2 site?

In short it is for creating Western Front Campaigns.

And to add it was created with the 1.22 patch so only the new planes from that patch will appear(I believe). But Starshoy has announced that the coding for BoE will be updated and released to work with the aircraft from AEP. Have fun. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

There are a couple coming out in Germany right now, or soon to be : Case Blue and Rebirth of Honor. Do a search for them, it should give you their websites.

With what you have now, you are good to go. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
Barbarossa is a linear Eastern Front campaign originally written & distributed for free for IL2 Sturmovik. I still have the file somewhere.
You will like BoE better I am sure.

One thing is IL-2, FB, ACE other is BoE & Barbarosa. Last two are campaigns created by others - not Oleg team.
