Let's face facts.As far as the developments are progressing we can clearly see that there will be an asian campaign.Ewery week there are pictures of the nearly complete ZERO and KI-83 as well as a B-25 to shoot down.Such progress i don't see for the Med scenario.And even if a Med campaign is created you coul call it an air campaign if your idea of air battle is straffing the ground and dodging enemy flak.

There seems to be credible airbattles for both scenarios. I'm definately more familar with the PTO but the Med would be new and interesting.

Everything from Hellcats, to Spitfires, to P40's to Bf109's and the like would be present. It wouldn't be boring...but desert isn't my favorite local...water would be more interesting http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That's because the Med A/C, e.g.Me-109, P-40. Me-110, Hurri,
Blenheim, Mc202, Fiat G-50 P-47 (used in Tunisia) - already exist.
This could go either way. Let's hope it goes both! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

This is the funniest topic in all of flight sim history.
We complain about software companies "selling out" and going for the big dollar then we ask someone who has made the best flight sim in computer gaming history to make us a game based on a theatre Oleg's family or country had little to do with.

Next thing people will complain about is no La-5FN over Messina.

It's the Eastern Front. They won their own side of the war using their own planes.

I must be getting tired of saying this ... just because you see pictures of certain planes that flew in specific theatres it does not mean that those maps or planes will become available. I hope they do but I've been hanging around IL2 for ages and I think you're assuming a little too much.

Urm,then why would they be in the Dev. Update(I'm assuming that's what you're referring to)? I mean it IS called the DEVELOPMENT update for a reason. As for the maps, I'm sorry but it'd be a little silly seeing the Zero on the Eastern Front. Why would thinking we will get the new maps and planes be "assuming" too much? To me the pics speak for themselves.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I think it is quite wise to expand this game into the other theatre's. It keep's us here for years to come, and I agree it would be silly to have a Zero buzzing around over Leningrad, but I wouldn't mind it either. Just give us the planes and we will fly them.<---Sound familiar? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The development update is there as eye candy and keeps interest in the game. Some of those models have been there since the early days of IL2. Some projects have been started and abandoned, some like the He-111 have taken ages to implement in the game.

The He-111 was in the original IL-2. Do you mean the flyable version? Currently,what models in the Dev.Update have been there since the "early days"? I find it hard to believe the Update is there just for "eye candy".
