i'm new to this game and by looking on amazon.com, realize there are a few versions of il-2 available, some of which are stand-alone versions and some are expansion packs. i am a little overwhelmed, which is the newest standalone version? thanks!

mods, you can lock this once it's been answered, i realize its a dumb question http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Best deal going if you want to download it (will be huge)

http://shop.ubi.com/Prod_ExtDesc.asp?catalogid=396&id=97

For a disk in DVD, look for the "Ultimate addition I believe it is
and then download the PE2 addon.

ATM you really want IL2Forgotten Battles/Ace Expansion Pack/Pacific Fighters which are all contained in the above......The PE2 addon, then the new IL10 Manchuria coming soon you'll also want.

Yep - get the "Ultimate Edition" first. That's the base to add to.

The first addition will be the downnload only "Pe-2" add on.

The next (not yet released, coming soon) will be the "IL-10 Manchuria" add-on.

Then a little later will be the "1946" add on.

And that should be it, aside from a patch or two.

And welcome!
