  1. Ooo This. I would actually suggest using FC2 & FC3 to get all the western front stuff from RoF out and then Release Battle of Tarnopol with the three Russian aircraft from RoF (plus a couple new ones Morane-Saulnier Parasol/Bullet and/or Farman) and then a selection of Austro-Hungarian aircraft (Hansa-Brandenburg C.I (early/late), Hansa-Brandenburg D.I, Oeffag D.II, Oeffag D.III, and maybe a Rumpler C.Ia or Albatros C.III for the Germans). It seems that the Austro-Hungarians didn't really have dedicated fighter units but scouts were attached to Recon/bomber units. The Hansa-Brandenburg
  2. Have no fear. The nature of this game engine is such that new advances such as the WWI career will be integrated with previous releases (similar to how BoN aircraft are being added to the BoBp career currently). I think the only reason we didn't get a career mode with FC1 is that it was a sort of trial to see how much interest there was in the Flying Circus product line (WWI is more niche than WWII and those of us who had all the Rise of Flight stuff would be essentially re-buying it). It seems that the FC1 sales from the multiplayer community and single players willing to take a chance on
  3. Have you not tried the career mode or PWCG? THAT'S the SP experience for this sim IMHO. There are issues of course, but I've quite enjoyed the careers. I totally get being bummed out by the CAD exchange bullcr@p (I'm in Edmonton, AB). Cheers, Fafnir_6
  4. Oh man! There are a ton of familiar names here. I picked up IL-2 when it came out in Canada in 2001 (after reading about it in a magazine somewhere). Before that I played Jane's WWII Fighters, a little European Air War and a lot of modded Red Baron 3D. I mostly played IL-2 offline for the first few years but started dabbling in online play around 2003-2004 as Fafnir_6 (the "6" comes from my favorite Sturmbock Fw190A-5 skin in old IL-2). I remember well the raucous threads in the old Ubizoo and later the banana forums. I'm Fafnir_6 everywhere now and fly in IL-2 1946, IL-2 BoX, Rise of Fl
  5. Oh that's a cool emblem. Do we have any indication what the color was? I have the second picture too but the resolution is too crappy to make out the shield. Please let me know what you find out. Thank you, Fafnir_6

  7. Hello, I have thoroughly enjoyed the recently improved interior sounds for the Bf-109s and Bf-110s in IL-2 Great Battles. I am hoping this treatment can also be made for the exterior sounds as well. I suggest checking out Paddy Patrone's youtube channel for nice recordings for these birds and others also found in this sim as well. https://www.youtube.com/user/PaddyPatrone Cheers, Fafnir_6
  8. Hello, I had planned to get Battle of Normandy for myself over the holidays. I always purchase from the website to support the devs, but recently I have been having issues with VISA's fraud protection service automatically blocking my legitimate purchases from this website. I can always get my purchases through by calling VISA's customer support and getting the block removed and then re-trying to buy the content. My concern is that while I am a passionate supporter of this product, other VISA card users who may not be so committed may encounter this issue and give up. I would su
  9. Indeed. They may have leveraged the popularity of the Griffon Spit and the Dusenbomber to prop up BoN sales (which I have no issue with, in all honesty). More aircraft will surely follow. Cheers, Fafnir_6
  10. I always thought it was weird that they had the Spitfire XIV and Ar234B-2 as premium planes for BoN. They are much more BoBP aircraft. I would have rather seen a Spitfire IXc (1943/44) or Beaufighter or A-20G and Ju188E or Do217M-1 as premiums for BoN. Cheers, Fafnir_6
  11. Wow is that the difference in speed between the C and the R? That's pretty significant. Agreed. Yeah a Ju88S-1 would be fabulous. Fafnir_6
  12. The Ju88S/T would be the best fit for 1944 Bombing/photo recon ops. It was a VERY quick plane. Cheers, Fafnir_6
  13. Hello, I think adding the Ju88C-6a with the Ju88R-2 as a sub-variant would be a smart thing to do. This gives the best possible coverage over a large time-span and keeps the multiplayer crowd happier with a better performing version in the R-series for 1943-1944 ops (1700PS vs 1410PS per engine). Additionally, there is a preserved Ju88R-1 at the RAF Museum (Hendon??) if further info is needed. The Ju88C was heavily used on all fronts and is a worthy addition for Moscow, Stalingrad and Kuban campaigns as well as in Normandy (and potentially the med in the future). It's ubiquitousn
  14. As I stated in my edited earlier post...If they do D-Day as part of this theatre, many of the landing craft and capital ships will be transferrable to the PTO. Cheers, Fafnir_6
  15. Hello, I'm pretty stoked for this release (I will be purchasing it). I understand the disappointment around the PTO, but I'd submit that work on the Normandy theatre will flesh out the USAAF plane set for future Pacific campaigns in New Guinea/the Solomans and such. This frees up resources to focus on USN types once work actually starts on the pacific, while still populating careers there with historical USAAF types. It will also help with a potential Italy theatre so that resources can focus on Italian aircraft and German bombers. Also, If they do D-Day with this theatre, they
