Now the patch has arrived, to mixed praise.. attention turns to the next big thing.. the (Free?) Add on.

Don't get me wrong, I make no demands or complaints, i simply thought I'd ask sweetly if there's a complete list of the new a/c intended for release in the addon?

I know; that a number of independant developers are donating their time and resources.... that things can't be confirmed etc..

But i was simply curious as to whether Maddox has a complete list of the new a/c.

-no doubt someone will post a link to the friday updates.. but I aint so sure if that's all the planned planes..

(since my La5fn is now pants, I have my eye on Fievels Spitfire XIV !! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif lets hope that baby can be squeezed in!)

Hey, we're in the same boat! I posted the same question just a little earlier, to no avail. I have, though, been following the third-party community quite closely, and I think I can infer which planes are close to being complete. My guesses for this upcoming add-on or the next:

A6M5
Bf-110G
Fw-190A-8 Mistel
G.50
Go-229A
He-162A-2
IAR-80 and 81
Ju-88A
Me-163A
P-51B and D
P-80A
TB-3 Zvyeno
Ta-152H-1
Tempest

Heh ^^ your post snootles.. er, yeah i think you're on the right lines with those a/c.

I guess the planes will be dependant on the arena of operations..

-Or is it just 'new planes only' <- suits me!

Yes it would be nice to know exactly which a/c will be available, but I don't think even Oleg knows *exactly*.

What I'd like to know is when?!

I'm sure a few of Oleg's boys have a good idea when.

Please, put us in the loop, guys.

The He 162, Go 229, and Me 163 are tentatively scheduled to be part of a "Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe" - type addon later on this year. No, I'm not making this up; Oleg emailed me this back in June.

Yeah...now that you mention it, I did remember seeing a pretty complete Spit cockpit back on il2center. I don't know which one it was.

By the way which Spits are in the works? The Mk. 1, Mk. V, Mk. IX, Mk. XIV, and Mk. 22? There were quite a few actually.

Oh yeah! The SWoTL/'46 campaign project. Now THAT is something I'd like to play. Though I think there are WAY too many German aircraft in development for that, if you check the il2center lists. The '46 project needs:

B-50
La-9
Meteor F.Mk 4
MiG-9
P-82 Twin Mustang
P-84 Thunderjet
Tu-4
Vampire F.Mk 1

...among other planes

Snootles.. the Mk.XIV spitfire by fievel appears to be pretty much complete.. This may be the first spitfire (if any come at all).

BUT it is not my intention to impress upon Oleg et al; "This plane should be in.. and this etc.". That's not the purpose of this thread..

Any new a/c would be super /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I simply seek voluntary clarification.. which a/c Maddox intends to include in the/a addon.

For any feedback, the community is most grateful.

Hi Snootles,
....and what about the Pe-3bis-the only twin engine(both with Bf-110) fighter of the Eastern Front?????
Have you got any information about this plane???
I mean if it would be include in the Addon????
This plane has played historical role in the Battle of Moscow as well as protected the capital at night from LW bombers!!!
Thanks

I knew Gibbs's real nice P-38 was on its way, but I didn't know if it would be complete in time for the upcoming add-on, or even the one afterwards. Well, maybe the one afterwards...

I think Gib's P-63 has a good chance of making it in a later add-on. Personally,I think the P-63 should've been in from the very start(the original IL2),considering how much it was used by the Russians...

MMM...Maybe I was imagining this? I'll go back and check.

Did he specify whether that would be free or paid addon? Cause both are coming. I'm curious because that would basically say which planes are coming for free and which we would have to pay for. I'm hoping the luft 46 set will be the paid addon because that way we would get the more relevent planes for free /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif .

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.

No, he didn't say whether it would be pay or not. I guess it was too early at the time he emailed me to say whether there would be a charge for it. As it is, I'm continuing to gather peformance data for the He 162, so that it'll be the most accurate Spatz ever modelled. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It would be nice to know whats planned. However I would have to say I just want to know two things.

Will the New Planes patch still be a Free Addon?

Will the Allies be getting a "Modern" Multi Engine Bomber.


Like others i'd pay for a complete add on,Like all Bomber Pilots who play VVS I can not understand the logic in giving the russians obsolete bombers and the axis modern bombers.

The Pe-2 was legendary, has been in the game as AI since IL2 Came out and still we dont have a multi engine bomber of quality. Im not complaining overtly but it does seem strange.

Good on ya JG54_Lukas. The 162 will be worth trying simply to see if it could have been the wonder weapon that was hoped for. Most of the report by British testers reckoned it was a death-trap.

Don't forget to add xanty's Cr.42 to that list. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
