Just wondering since we are getting it with the next add on - first as an AI and then probable as a flyalbe one.

AKAIK no Tempest ever saw action in the Pacific. Tempest II's were scheduled to be exported over there en masse but the war ended before they made an appearance, they were used after the war there however, India took a number of them. Tempest V's I think only saw action in Northern Europe.

Michael the WildeSau <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Do not complain about the inclusion of the Tempest. Many of us have been waiting a long time for this plane--long before PF was released. The plane is an addition to AEP, and was never intended to be a Pacific Theatre plane.

I've been waiting almost 2 years for the Tempest V to be part of the game. Its been a long time in coming http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

No Tempest V's were ever used in the Pacific theater. They were sorely needed in Europe and they never had time to transfer them or tropicalize them.

AFAIK it will be only available in the merged install. So I think this is a bit of a non-issue.

Greenhorn - keep cool wasn't a complain at all but a question. Hope you will learn to understand the difference http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
