Does anyone know whether we are going to lose the flyable F2A that was scheduled to come with the "big patch"? From what I can gather, planes already in the game are kosher, so can 1C still ship the cockpit?

Ivan? Please?

Oleg has stated that he will include no more American stuff of the 'sensitive' kind...

"...including the one that was going to be in next free add-on".

Since Buffalo was the one we know, it's likely that it won't be there. Fortunately, you can still use B.239 and a good skin, although it lacks a hook and it's a little less powered.

B.239

Why is it less powered? I thought the Finish Brewster was the lighter better airplane!
Why cant Oleg just put a hook on it? There are no CVs on Finish maps anyway!!!!

Can you explain?
Thanks

I don't think the Brewster (the F2A-2, by the way, not the F2A-3) is "one of the sensitive kind". Brewster practically was taken over by the USN during the war, but closed by the government in 1944 because of its extremely bad production record. In 1945 or 1946 the shareholders agreed to shut down Brewster for good. No other company, to my knowledge, was interested in buying the assets, if any, so nobody owns the rights to the Brewster trademark as far as I can tell (assuming the Brewster trademark was ever registered as such).
So as far as the Buff is concerned, Oleg can do what he wants. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Curtiss-Wright are still in business, though they no longer build aeroplanes. So the CW21B may be on hold for the time being.... bummer!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Then it must be the Devastator. But something is going to be scrapped from add-on. Just check this: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=23110283&m=5521094352

It's number '6' that says that.

The Devastator may well be the bird... it was built by Douglas, which was taken over by McDonnell in the late 1960s to form McDonnell-Douglas. McDonnell-Douglas was in turn taken over many years later, and its company names are no doubt owned by one of the remaining U.S. aircraft manufacturers.

It could be even a 'surprise' flyable Avenger... a Grumman bird that will never make it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I believe that BOEING has McDonnel Douglas now.
