Im not sure, most likely tho. In the US its called Discovery wings and you have to pay seperately for it. But you get a bunch of channels along with it for $5 bucks they replay the same stuff for months but its worth it

Leadspitter:

I think you either misheard or you have short term memory:

Over 7000+ A-20 Made.
Over 2500+ A-20 sent to Russia (lend-lease)

The G series had 4x20mm (not 30mm) cannons, but they used to lock up after 200 rounds fired, so they got 6x .50 cal instead (after a short series of 150 units)

Yes, the Havok will be great. Hope to get it going soon an steady.

Rafael is making it. (look in http://www.il2center.com/Forums for screenshots)
