If you don't mind flying British aircraft, I'm reasonably confident you might well get RAAF Spitfires in this one. I don't know much beyond that. I guess the good old P-40 in Aussie markings is a fair possibility too, both aircraft are included from what I've read, and Ubisoft seem very good about supporting allied countries other than the usual USN/USMC/USAAF. If not you can fly one of ours over Singapore - you are welcome to join the RAF like many of your brave countryman really did!

Thanks for that Zeke. I appreciate the kind offer. I suppose I just want to know though whether that will include Australian marking in the manner they have included other countries in prior releases. We were a relatively significant contributor at the time. At the completion of World War Two, we had the fourth largest Air Force in the world..... How times have changed... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
