Am I the only one who is REALLY looking forward to having the zero in the game? I think it looks friqin cool.

New planes including gibbages work also look great..

The plane that I would love to be developed for FB is the CAC Boomerang. It was a fairly crap plane... but its the only plane built in Australia. I know it will never be modelled, but I live in hope :-)

I'm glad we are getting the Zero , and like you I would like to see the Boomerang bult and put into the game also..

One of the things I like about this sim is the aircraft we get to fly from other countries . Not just the ones from the U.S. and England .

One thing I have learned is no matter how bad some say an aircraft is , if you really take the time and learn the plane you can be just a deadly in it as the Uber planes that are raved about Or griped about .

Smoke bombs? Did they play dead when someone was on their six?/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Looks interresting, could be fun to have in the game though.

I am glad the Zero will be in, but I am overjoyed that the Ki84 will be here!!!!

Unfortunately I fear that the Ki84 will suffer the same fate as the Me262..to wit....It will be banned from many servers, probably by the same people who fly the n00bicane all the time.

I think (although I could be wrong) that the boomerang was used mainly for ground support, hence the smoke bombs used to cover infantry movements I guess.

What I like about the boomerang is it's armanent .. 2 x 30 mm cannons... *whistle*.

I want Ki~43 Hayabusa. Probably would be sweetest flyer. Would replace my P11c as touring plane. And one of the best acrobatic planes made with guns.

Ki~43 better than Zero just for the flying around.

Cant wait to fly a Zero as modelled by Oleg & team. I also want a Spitfire from them. I just want to compare all these great old planesr under the best FM to date.

Would also like to try the Ki43 to see if I could pull off those 3 half loops one on top of the other.

The Ki-84 is the plane I am more likely to fly tho. Decent speed, radial engine (i like those) good turns etc. & good firepower.

Yeah, but there are no B-29s around /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif


For the Boomerang: Though it's not a beaty - it's rather cute /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
