Just bought a copy of IL-2 Forgotton Battles, Fantastic! Can't stop playing it. Then i find out there is a prequel, if i get a copy and install it will it give me all the original aircraft and any extras (if there are any). Or should i have installed the original first and FB would have been like an expansion pack? Ive just discovered this game so go easy on me! Do Pacific Fighters and 1946 act as expansions packs when installed? I'm confused?! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

As has been stated, IL-2 1946 will get you everything. Forget about everything else and just get IL-2 1946.

The 'prequel' adds nothing. In fact, quite the opposite; FB has everything from the prequel plus more...and the two titles aren't even compatible with each other.

FB started the second generation of the series, and all the expansions were sequential builds on FB. So you have your choice:

1. Seek out, buy and install in this order:
- Aces Expansion Pack
- Pacific Fighters on CD-ROM, not Direct2Drive.
- '46 add-ons only pack from UbiSoft France's digital store.

~or~

2. IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 (either on DVD or as a full digital download from UbiSoft North America) for about $20-30 bucks USD. It has all parts of the FB series. It also includes the campaigns from the original 'prequel' IL-2 game that weren't re-released with Forgotten Battles.
