I just got FB a week or so ago and find that the Leningrad fight missions involving the p40 are unplayable. Either the p40 spontaneously blows up at high speed or to avoid that I poodle about at low speed absorbing german cannon shell.

I'm now playing Sturmovik leningrad missions - they're much more fun.

How did the p40 bug get through the testing net?

Beats me, but the "spontaneous desintegration"-bug is one of the most well known. The P-40 will be addressed in the patch, as far as I understand.

Some of us have begun to suspect we ARE the testing net.

No doubt, the exploding P-40 bug is a real pain. But I'm sick of people using this to imply that FB is in any way sloppily crafted or poorly tested. Few games are perfect out of the box, but at least for most of us FB works as intended, which is more that can be said about a lot of stuff. Further, Oleg and Co seem more willing to listen to complaints and fix things than most other game developers.
