When will we see this famous aircraft? I know people who will not buy the game until it is available.

It'd be really silly to pass up a game as great and significant as IL2 Forgotten Battles simply because the Corsair is not part of the lineup. But for your information there is one in the works: http://www.netwings.org/dcforum/DCForumID43/759.html

When is another issue...but we'll have it eventually!

Why wouldn't you buy the game just because it lacks one plane? There are a TON of planes in FB right now, I'm sure they could find another one to fly that they'd enjoy.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to the corsair myself, but I feel like it wont really fit in with FB...like, it'll stick out like a sore thumb http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

It'll likely go in Luthier's Pacific project. I doubt it'll stick out any more than the Zero or Ki-84 that are already in FB. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Whoa, whoa whoa... couple months? Try in about a year or so. MAYBE by this Christmas, knowing software production company demands.

Don't hold your breath yet.

I just asked if one was in the works. My friends choice to not buy FB is his choice, not mine. Different strokes for different folks.

Badsight-

is it an optical illusion, or does that F4U in your pic look out of proportion? Seat and cockpit look awful big.

It's likely a perspective distortion.

I remember the logic I used when I bought my first flight simulation game. It was Jane's Attack Squadron. I thought I could finger it all out just by looking at the games on the shelf (makes me smile to think how silly I was) and comparing the information on the boxes. I decided that Jane's was a respected name in the aerospace and military industry and it also had the P-51. At that time I didn't consider IL-2 and all its "weird" planes because it lacked the P-51. Of course, I found out later that they got tired of trying to develop the game and sold it while still not fixed and supposedly the Mod-Doc people fixed it and released it.

Well, now that I've got IL-2 FB, the Jane's game gathers dust and IL-2 FB is the only flight sim game I play. Try to remember that every added piece of eye candy taxes our already overworked PC's. Enjoy IL-2 FB, "weird" planes and all!

A Corsair flew over my house last week,it looked and sounded great, and was covering a lot of sky quickly- we gotta have it!!

I think the Ki-84, Zero and Pacific scenery are out of place without the Corsair. They were used by the USMC, RNZAF and FAA in the Pacifc. The FAA used them in Europe too (e.g. on the Tirpitz raids).

So lots of interesting battle scenarios and skinning opportunities with a very capable plane.
