Just install BoE. CoE is just a mission & skin add on. BoE will update the campaign structure to give you Western Front US & LW campaigns. If you like offline campaigns, you will like it.

Just get AEP, what's the point of BOE when AEP will make you ver. 2.0 and give you all the new planes to fly that BOE doesn't. Anyway there's a BOB campaign out there on Netwings website that is excellent if you're looking for some good action. AEP pak is mandatory now since you can't get a ver. 2.0 update anywhere online so you can't play most servers now online.

The advantage of BOE is it gives the US (and of course Germans) the chance to fly offline Western front Campaigns. Apparently AEP doesn`t do this.

Also with the patch, Stashoy is expected to add UK (and others) to the offline Campaigns in BOE Westen front. So Spits should be able to fly on the West front too.

AEP is obviously essential if you want to play online and get all those new planes.

BoE is worth getting though because it has lots of campaigns and missions and there is a patch coming out for it that will upgrade it to use some of the new AEP planes.

If you have to choose 1 then AEP is the one you want... if you can afford both then you're laughing.

However, before you rush out and buy BoE - check the link in my sig... there are some great campaigns to download there for free.

Thanks for all that.I know that aces has v2 and that I will need that.My question really should have been "do I need both boe and coe".Its really the campaignsthat I want.I know that aep has more ac but does it have extra missions?I have heard that it doesnt?Thanks.
