I'm curious as to why no one is running a "BoBish" map in the server rotation. We have most of the planes as flyables that served in the battle:

Hurricane Mk. I
J8A or Gladiator
Spitfire Mk. Va

Ju-87B
Bf109E series
He-111 (can't remember the second part, but it's the earlier model)
Bf110G

Granted, we'd have to make some exceptions to realism with the Bf110G and the Spitfire Mk. Va but with my testing, the Bf109E is more than enough a match to the Spitfire Mk. Va. Plus, the Bf110G wouldn't tip the scales to the Germans seeing as the only things that fall victim to the Zerstorer are unaware pilots.

The fact we may not have a channel map doesn't mean we can't use another one to simulate it, afterall this game is a flight simulator. The way I view it is, it'd give us all something to help distract us from the wait for BoB, and the other thing is I'm craving a map that forces objectives. That being said, why not? Why not have a map that makes it so the Allies goal is to not run out of pilots, and the Axis goal is to destroy objectives or shoot down all the allies? Just talking about it makes me excited. Well, I hope this message reaches some of the server admins and mission makers out there...I'm all for a BoB map or server.

I know one thing.MAybe for 6months it will be exciting,then it will get boring.I don`t think "two weeks" for upgrades will get shortened either.

Don't forget CR.42 and G.50, but they have to have real Fiat Fans to select them though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif They will be in Oleg's new BoB.

Glad to have a few responses...I used to love the Battle of Britain campaign in EAW (European Air War)...maybe if we bug Oleg enough we can have a Spitfire Mk. I http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif (seeing as we already have a cockpit and slight flight model tweaks) added in the next patch.
