Is there a list of the aircraft that will be in the expansion pack? Was somewhat disappointed by only 20 aircraft when these giant lists were floating around not too long ago.

No final list...20 is probably conservative but we'll see.

Remember that a bunch of planes will be patched into the pack later on. The Spitfire IX for instance nearly was ready but its got a few bugs to work out yet...so that will come later on. The Tempest is another still undergoing some final work on it...so there will be more coming.

Disappointed by only(?) 20 new planes in the expansion pack? Uuhh..how many planes are in the latest CFS3 expansion pack? It's true that some of these planes have already been made available in on-line patches/add-ons, but you need to remember that probably 80% of the IL2/FB players don't download addons. For a 29.99 USD expansion pack, it offers a really big punch. I do hope we get Japanese and Italian chatter for the Zero, Frank and G50, though!

Be carefull as to how you feel about this "new" expansion pack. Word is that UBI is spending to much time with patches and acft mods, ect.. To compensate, nothing will me free anymore other that corrections (patches)to the basic game.

Want that JU88? Sure, next year for another $29.99!

I hope this isn't true...but be on the watch...

Everything good will end someday.Ppl will have to pay for stuff they want the most - Me110,Spitfire,Tempest,Hellcat etc.

I`m kinda surprised as to why didn`t da 1C team figure out that ppl are just aching to see some 2 engined fighters-bombers as Me210,Hs129,Mosquito.

Ok,P38 is in da exp pack but it`s just a taste of things to come.

Darn right... especially when you consider that 1C/Ubi REDUCED the amount of flyable multi-engine planes for the add-on.

At first, the Fw-200 Condor was planned fully flyable, now it'll be ai only.
Now, rumor has it the long-expected B-25 also won't make it as flyable, only as an ai plane.

The future of the Bf-110 is also still uncertain.

However, there will be plenty of new single engine fighters... it seems FB's main focus was and is only on the dogfights, and partially on ground attack. Bombers are far too less represented in the game.

Oh well, don't wanna whine, I guess I'll get the add-on anyway, don't wanna fall behind in FB's evolution... but I expect that some planes will be given to us via a downloadable patch later.

S!

Wasn't there legitimate problems with these aircraft? I thought I remembered hearing that the Fw 200 cockpit was rejected by Oleg due to the level of detail it was modelled to. Please set me straight if this wasn't the case.
Similarly, wasn't there concern on accuracy of the cockpits in the B-25 variants? Again, correct me if I am wrong, but these do seem like legitimate reasons for their disclusion. Also, if these were the problems that held these aircraft back, they should likely be ready by the first patch.
