Why can't I post without typing this again? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I hosted a small game last night between the Japanese A6m2 Zero vs I-153 and I-16 after reading an interesting article about the Japanese conquest in China.

biplane fighters (http://www.dalnet.se/~surfcity/japan_yama****a.htm)

Even before Pearl harbour the Japanese had a hard time fighting the Chinese in China.

Will the I-16 and I-153 still be in the game?

Will PF be all pacific based sea battles or will there be some land masses too like Korea,China, the Philippines etc?

In a post placed by Burnin 777 right after the E3 show - there was a China map listed.

However, he did also say that none of the text info for PF was definite or final.. the usual disclaimer.

Sources at E3 say that China and the AVG are in.

How could they not be?


I had fun for the short time I was on your server. As I said then, the Ki 27 Nate would be better than the A6M2 in combatting the Russian Polikarpov fighters, bucause of it's superior turning and maneuverability.

That could mean the CBI where the AVG fought, basically having the P-40E ready to go and the Ki-43 I being worked upon by Gibbage.

Now indeed how could they not be in...

But does the same apply to the Soviet types that were active in China and Mongolia and their Japanese counterparts.

Since I haven't seen an official list there is a good chance that the Nate will at best be an AI, or that the A5M will be left out completely.

IMHO it is time we get an official list.

1. A/C that are priority ONE flyables
2. A/C that have a good chance to be flyable on first release, at worst in a patch.
3. A/C that are going to be AI only

4. Actual list of campaigns (maps)
5. Actual nations being included in release:

US vs Japanese only, or RAF, NEIAF, RAAF and RNZAF, VVS etc etc etc.

Since the dev. team dropped their bomb they have been too silent, IMHO.

rhorta,

I agree that we could use a little more info from the devs...

But I also understand that they may be a little gunshy of us. After all, when ever Luthier posts in here it has a 50/50 chance of turning into a flame fest.

Now, as to flyables. The Ki27 is an absolute must for the CBI theatre. Why it is not being considered as a flyable is beyond me.

I don't see why Luither can't carry the I-153 and I-16 over to PF and add a skin. There are about 10 skins in IL2skins for that already done. Don't have to model hole campaigns for them, they could be just in multiplayer like most of the US aircraft http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

I'm not asking for an anouchment of all aircraft because I can understand why they are kind of secret. Just a request for aircraft http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Yeah for CBI we have several planes already in AEP. The I-153, I-16, P-36, P-40E (be nice to see a B or C though), F2B, C-47 (C-46 would be cool)...

I'm not up on what french planes were in indochina, but we have a few french planes already.

Main modern fighter in Indochina was the MS 406, IIRC.

There is a well known profile of a Vichy MS 406 with a red tail flown by later Yak ace Pouyade.

I can see one good reason: money

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

Why give us these planes when you could make a later addon?

Seriously, since they dropped the communality anything goes, until they say what is in and what isn't.
