Amazing stuff, looks really great!
It's nice to see that you are giving the old JU 88 an overhaul, the new model looks really nice (any chance of this model being released as flyable in a pre- BoB addon? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif)
That JU 52 seaplane is gonna be one of my favourite targets, looks great too.
Ooh I haven't got my AEP yet, I just can't WAIT!! I want my spit, my P-63, my P-38 my... my...

Oh what the heck, you guys are the greatest! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

"With the Ace Expansion Pack just week away," ??

A few Europeans in these boards were right, methinks. The US guys were all beta testers these past couple of weeks. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

OK, ubi. Okay, already. I get the hint. I voted I-185 in the poll...just show us the *bleeping* thing already. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

This may be a silly question, but can someone explain what that Mistel thing is? It really looks weird and I can't find any reasonable use for it (bomber, recon, fighter?). Just wondering. Anyone knows? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Nice to see the good old Defiant again. Looks promising!

I was thinking the same thing....

Why keep posting development screens of an add-on that has already been released (minus Europe)?

Why not some screens of this patch coming out on/around the European release of AEP?

So what will be in the ACE update in one week?

A Mistel is a desperate German contraption at the end of the war which took an obsolete bomber, loaded it with HE and conected it to a fighter that flew it to the target. After lining up on the target the fighter disengaged and te unmanned bomber hit the target and blew it up. It was only tried a few times, with one notable success against a bridge in East Germany.

A question: what's the fighter flying the Mistel? Is it a Bf-109 or a FW-190? I know that early versions of Mistel used the first and later the second... which one is featured in the game?

Oh, and in the video the crashing Mistel makes a hell of explosion! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
3.5 tons of destruction... neat!

It's definitely a Focke Wulf.

HI Guys, I received my AEP! WOW~ the usual super quality. Although, I can't find the Mistel. Maybe it's named differently? I was sparring with an ME109F, while flying a P-40E. The German shot my tail off and I still managed to fly, minus my fin, rudder and left h/stab! Want to see it? I made a recording of it. How can I attach it?
Another oddity: Hawker Hurricane while retracting u/carriage. Part of the retacting gear rotates through the upper wing surface. Have a look.

Actualy, the Boulton-Paul Defiant may not have been much of a fighter during the B.O.B. but it held it's own in the latter part of 1940-41, as a night fighter. It actually created some aces! So the Defiant wasn't a joke after all.

joke or no joke i'd love a defiant!!

p.s if i recall rightly there was also a jet mistel using a salamander (hs162 i think) and a specially developed "bomber" plane (also powered by jet) i think it could have been a arado or something

The Mistel can only be found in the FMB, same thing for V-1 (not counting Single Missions).
