Just a quick question on BOB. I was wondering how the ground control of fighters will be modelled into the game. As everyone knows, the RAF made extensive use of radar and ground vectoring of fighters during the battle to precisely guide the formations of fighters into a favourable attacking position. Will this be modelled? i am looking forward to chatting up some WAAF after she positions me for the perfect attack on a formation of e/a

Any ideas yet or is it far too soon? Also will the ground control actually be accurate to real time, so when i lose sight of the battle i can call up ground control and ask for a vector to enemy action.

Would be really great if it all worked as it should.

Far too soon... we can only hope that there is more relevant communication in BoB than in IL-2

Getting better radio from AI friendlies would be nice as well.

ie. instead of 'help i'm under attack!' - we get some useful information:

ie. location and altitude.

Also, some sort of notification from the ground would help as well - location again being a key.

S!
