Where is the swordfish? Illustrous carried over twenty of these torpedo bombers ant its not even AI! I recently visited the fleet air arm museam (i would greatly recommend it)and they have a real swordfish there. They also have videos and accounts of raids. (http://www.geocities.com/Broadway/Alley/5443/tar3b.htm) It seems to me that thesse planes played a big part in the war. So why are they not featured in PF?

Pingu666 and assorted talented others made a model. Unfortunately they couldn't get all the bugs worked out before the deadline for IL2 submissions. I cant remember if it was going to be AI only or flyable. I do seem to remember some cockpit shots on Netwings a while ago so I guess they were attempting to get it as a flyable.

So the short story is that there isn't one, the last chance for it passed us by and we can't really expect to get one.

Which is painful, but thats the way it goes.

Sorry mate, no chance of it being in the GAME, let alone the patch. Besides, a lot of the recently submitted stuff still has to be implemented into the engine and such. That takes quite a while (not to mention things like FM, DM and other animations).

A lot of the more recently finished stuff will have to wait for subsequent patches.

And I dont know where this MEGA patch idea comes from; yes, we are geting a new FM (Yippie!) but if people go around calling it MEGA your all going to be in for a disappointment!

Well, it's an add on, not a patch. Hence the 4.0 and not the 3.05

i was doing texture stuff, which i was pretty lax about, just incable of motivating myself on important stuff http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

there was bugs in model, fiddly and time consuming stuff, and we ran out of time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
we tried our best, but atleast we didnt stop anyone else doing it, as all where busy or no interest.
