Why do the British have to pay $5 than the US for Bofors when they are EXACTLY the same.

Because we have to pay import duty on them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Why can't I set the direction of my formation by clicking then dragging?

its about balance. The UK bofors are more expensive but the spitfire I believe is cheaper than the P51 Mustang

They're not only exactly the same, but the US based their Bofors off British design drawings.

However - the US also did a shifty, and built them unlicensed from the British specs, whereas the Brits paid the licensing fee to the Swedish firm that designed them - but I doubt the licensing fee was a fairly hefty 50% markup http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

And Dan - is this some acknowledgement that in some cases the Brits seem to have had a bit of a rough hand dealt to them? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. They also have to pay through the nose for their Skinks as well ($10 more per unit, and an extra $25 research, compared with the Whirbelwind), and for what they pay for their Churchill, the US get the Pershing (or Super Pershing), the Germans get the Tiger and the Russians get the IS-2.

It's ok - we're used to getting shafted on exchange rates in the UK. We often pay for $, especially on PSN games http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The brits to get it rough and the Churchill is a good tank but will lose to a most other heavies i dont understand why they didn't include real amazing tank from the brits like the centurion or the comet they were both made in 1945
