-German gunsights changed. Different reticle that is bigger but doesn't change much.

-P-51B in '42 planeset, this can't be right and it is annoying. Malcolm Hood Mustang is '43 plane which is also wrong, Malcolm hood first installed on P-51 in '44. This doesn't bother me though.

-P-38 sounds awesome, looks awesome, has awesome load-outs. In short, its cool as hell. Just noticed a thread on its flying capabilities, and I admit I wasn't too impressed. I thought the L would be a little better but the J is about what I expected.

-Disappointed with Spitfire cockpit. External is sweet but cockpit feels dull/generic.

-Seems to be less spread on .50cal guns, more accurate (I'm 90% sure I am right, I could be wrong). Possibly less spread on other cannons/guns as well, my MGFF's don't seem so erratic and trajectory seems better.

-FW-190 definitely has a complex DM, for good or bad we will see. I like it so far: Holes in windscreen, broken gunsight, shattered gauges, WooHoo! Glass wing syndrome should be gone, WooHoo again. "One hit = super dipping wing fly like a bus" bug seems to be gone/lessened, will need more time (this was my biggest wish for 190).

-FW-190 may retain more energy now, high speed scissors can be maintained at 350-400km/h without to much difficulty. High speed handling remains superb. Roll-rate definitely decreased at speed.

-Planes overall seem to roll a little less well now, just my initial impression (could be wrong).

-P-47D roll is still brutal

-Planes may bleed more energy and be a little less forgiving than before, more blackouts seem to occur.

-Gloster Gladiator is simply a work of art, truly amazing (Note I haven't even tried Falco, Fiat, etc.)

-Me-262A-1/U4 is indeed in the game.

Overall I am extremely happy with expansion and its overall feel so far. Nice new intro screen and menu screen. My only initial complaint is the P-51B being put in '42 planeset but I am confident server admins will know where it belongs (I am not being biased, performance of P-51B is great and it should be, but it doesn't belong in '42 fighting 109G-2's and FW-190A-4's).

Are there any of those "promised" new offline missions or campaigns?

Cheers!

I agree with everything you said....PLUS.. the P-80 is interesting... that vcannon in the Me262 is a mofo....... the CW Spits are great IMO.. I had no issues with them. Overall a very great package......

And I was hoping the P-47D-27 would finally be looked at and corrected. Oh well...Spitfire here we come! :D
