King George V class battleship... if they put the Repulse in there as well we can build some Force Z scenarios.

For Force Z we'd need Nells, no? &lt;G&gt;

I hope they can get the AI to fly at lower alt for torpedo runs, mast height attacks, and parafrag drops.

As an aside, has anyone figured out the way bombers decide to change formations (short of a flight you tell to change formation?) B-25s and A-20s would attack airfields in line abreast, for example (trailing formations would have required long delays in waves because of parachute-******ed bombs).

The A-20s look sweet.

I sincerely hope that we will have to drop torpedoes properly in order for them to work.

In that respect, the kate dropping the torpedo is disapointing.

Except that, it looks great.

yeah the only prob is a torpedo dropped from this height will either explode at water surface's contact or either sink down to the bottom of the water and maybe kill a starfish...

We could probably get by on Bettys but Nells would certainly be nice.

Excellent update! Aside from the torpedo comments(which are valid) it should also be noted that the planes in the first "Mitsubishi A6M Zero" pic are actually Aichi D3A Vals. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Is it just me or have they improved the smoke effects?

http://www.il2sturmovik.com/forgotten_battles/270804/ph4.jpg

I ask that because of the smoke coming from that battleship in the background.

I also think that they've improved the smoke effects since the smoke coming from the ships' funnels looks a lot better too.

Great update, I'm glad we finally got to see at least some of the variety of warships that will be in the game. Anybody know what that cruiser is that's beside Prince of Wales in the pics? Not the one that looks like the Indianapolis, the other one.

I just wish they would have shown us the end result of that Zeke's kamikaze attack.

I can just imagine the frame rate drop on my computer when all that AA fire comes onscreen, time to upgrade! Still, very cool shots, best update when it comes to showing off some ingame action shots.

OK..the smoke and general explosions effects look VERY nice!! Hopefully this game will run on my decent 32bit_3200+ 9800PRo Rig.. I really don´t want to upgrade until the BoB comes out.

I wonder if ships will break into pieces(and the like) when appropriately damaged. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Great screenshots of the Pearl area from UBI and the french site !

Can't believe none of your huge history slingers have not jumped on the fact that those ships don't belong at pearl.

I wonder if the AEP2 expansion and the PF will be released simultaneously?....

Very groovy. It really would have been good to see the damage modelling on the Lexington after the suicide attack...bet they're saving that for later.

From what has been said about the zillion different kinds of ships the game will have, the ships in the Pearl Harbor teaser are a little odd...they must be messing with us again. Oleg and his crew must do this kind of thing deliberately and then take bets on how many posts they'll be about KGV class battleships at Pearl Harbor and torpedo runs at 300 metres blah, blah, blah. I'll start complaining only if the actual game has battleship row populated by the Kriegsmarine and Ford Island defended by Tai Fighters.

I Just hope my puny system can take it.

I guess were seeing no AAA in any of the screens cause it's gonna be a framerate killer???

Capt._Tenneal

The inaccurate ships are probably due to this being a WIP and they're testing ship placements with ships already modeled . I'm hopeful we'll see the real Battleship Row when the game is released .

I'm also thinking that these screenies are from some of the tracks that are going to be in the game . IIRC, some of the update screenies they showed of AEP before it came out later turned out to be from the tracks included with AEP .
