Considering a large portion of the British Fleet Air Arm used many of the same planes as the US towards the end of the war I was wondering if the product would be shipping with RN specific skins for the Hellcat, Avenger or Corsair for example? (Assuming they all ship with the product.)

Thx in advance

when the plane models are ready and after the sim is released you will be able to go to
www.Il2skins.com (http://www.Il2skins.com) and get whatever you need in short order. You can go there now and see what I mean.

That's the plan, to ship as many historical skins with all planes as possible. Then those skins will be automatically assigned to the apprioriate country/squadron by the campaign engine.

If the planes were used by more than one country we'll definitely do at least one skin per country.

Yes - of course he means default skins - however - Ive seen 3rd party skins of participating planes/squads that were Not included or were actually Better than the ones that were... so - I post the link.. besides - Others on this board may not have seen that site. Cheers

Bear in mind Jg7, lots of new people will be drawn to these boards that have no idea what a Sturmovik is - they are drawn to a more recocnizable "Pacific Fighters" title.

Thanks ARSNL -

I probably already have at least one.. I'll check...

I saw relatively few posts assigned to you so I thought if you knew the site good - but someone new that looked at the thread might wanna check it out.

This is a great opportunity to introduce NEW people to FB..
