Why would you want an aircraft that wasn't in that theatre? Only Friedrichs and Gustavs, no Emil.

I hope 777 stick to historical facts.

While every model of Bf-109 has a special place in my heart, historical facts are more important. There are other games for other models of -109

The Emil took part in the opening stages of Operation Barbarossa, which I'm hoping will be put into the game later.

I imagine the two priorities for 777 and co after launch will be bug fixing (they do, at least, support a game after release for some time) and then working on new cockpits/aircraft for the shop. Probably go through the AI only aircraft at first and then perhaps bring in new ones. Eventually, if it sells well enough they may do another theatre, like the Channel map for ROF.

I wish we could have a proper Pacific Theatre Flight Sim...

Pacific Fighters/IL-2 1946 was okay...but I mean a fully dedicated PTO flight sim.

We can only hope.

$95 *cough/splutter*

I'll sit this one out until it's in the bargain bin*.




*by bargain, I mean realistic price.

Well, if you get it now, you can play it now

It comes out next year. This is the Alpha testing phase.

Hey why not? Could BoS be worse in alpha than CloD two years after launch? After running the numbers in my head, I think I'll get a couple more modules for DCS instead.... Then again, I could be surprised. Set your standards low, and you're not as likely to be disappointed.

Wait for the inevitable xmas sale on Steam and you can prolly pick up the lot for the same cost. In the summer sale the Huey was just £6.99 (normally £29.99) and it'd only been release a few weeks, I think everything was similar apart from maybe FC3.

Edit - wasn't FC3, that's not on Steam.

Guys, I've said it before:

The game hasn't been released yet, it's an ALPHA. The price at release will be $40.

I've never known an early access game be over double the release price!

Of course we could be confusing Aussie and US Dinars, I don't know what the difference is.
