If you want to combine air combat with other vehicles, why not combine planes and PT boats? Akella is coming out with KotS this summer (hopefully) with a lot of AI planes, so at least the future potential of this combo seems to exist. Right now the only vehicle combo is planes and tanks, which are impervious to each other, so it is kind of pointless. PT boats and planes can hurt each other and perform similar missions: attack ships, defend ships, escort, recon. Any possibility this might happen?

If Allah himself deins to make it so.

Games series that are interplayable, like that destroyer and sub game, are made by the same developer, with the same engine, and coded beforehand to be interoperable.

Essentially they are the same game, but the content is seperated over two products for reasons of time or money.

Two dissimilar games would not be interoperable, unless both developers took the time to rewrite each game to a common game engine, with features similar enough to be compatible. Then figure out how to make the two games talk to each other in multi.

But you may take solace in the fact that Oleg said he would like to include additional vehicle types in the future, perhaps even to the BoB series.

I don't have an exact quote, but he seems to have a long term goal to make a combined arms sim.

I hope Oleg gives us bicycles.

Just imagine cycling online with your squad, along the beach at sunset http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

OFF(Over Flanders Fields) the WWI addon for cfs3 has bicycles you can ride.

There is supposed to be some info at E3 about the WWII rts by 1C(not Oleg).

One thing great I reckon would be manning flack guns. I still get onto BF1942 occasionally and always enjoy defending with flack guns while running around like a total twit http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

I'm having a bit of trouble with the abbrevation. Kots means something like 'vomit' here http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

249th_Harrier... From the site forum of KotS this feature of combining two games will not be added. SH2 & Destroyer Command you can do this combination and play on-line also.

Knights of the Sea is gonig to a Excellent game when it comes out though.
The developers have worked with some of Oleg's team and have put extra effort with realistic settings and graphic's for this game.
