    Clostermann claimed (get my excuses in early) to have eacorted them on a No-Balls mission (contender for most Ironic missions name) in early ‘44. Sounds a bit odd - were they still ETO front line that late?

     

    Hurricane production ended in June or July 1944... but operational types would have been the Hurricane Mk IV in 1944, and all Hurricanes were withdrawn from active service in March 1944... except for the Postal Squadron runs at Normandy.

    137 Sqn retained at least one Hurricane after Normandy. It was destroyed when the Jerries hit Eindhoven in January 1945.

     Mk V came next but never saw active service

    In this context there is a difference? Doesn't matter when or what gets announced someone always has to rain on the parade... It's irritating. Just be happy you get some cool stuff. Many want this. If its not constructive , keep it to yourself.

    Have a beer , whatever u need to let loose elsewhere..

     

    Anyone with half a brain will know what I was on about... Look at my original post. Use a bit of lateral thinking laced with a bit of sarcasm... I wasn't even being serious.

    Custard knew exactly where I was coming from.

  3. ''Throughout the 20th century, Wednesday was especially referred to as hump day in an effort to liven up the drudgery of the workweek. Coworkers may wish one another Happy Hump Day! in a lighthearted or ironic acknowledgment that day-to-day work can be a drag. Evidence for the phrase dates back to at least the 1980s.''

  4. It's been repeatedly stated that Task Force Admiral is not a flight simulator... it's easy however for people to get excited and think it is by the amount of aircraft action that is being displayed. Who knows, perhaps one day Pacific fans will get their wish :biggrin:

    Maybe Jason's made a typo:

    Oh if only... The Hampden or ''The Flying Suitcase'' as it became known, could be used by the RAF and the Soviets in game.

    It reminds me of a insect, the dragonfly comes to mind.


  6. I don't think anyone was trying to compare this game with IL2... It's in the Free Subject/Other Games area.

    It's mainly aimed at attracting Star Wars fans and what they think a new Star Wars game will be like... Most here will have played the original Tie Fighter, X-Wing and X-Wing Alliance many years ago and if they are anything like me they would love to see something comparable in a modern Star Wars space combat game.

    Maybe the pri$e had something to do with their decision?

     

    I find it strange that the price is only £34.99 for a brand new SW game, yet, Jedi-Fallen Order is still £54.99... (standard game versions).

    Star Wars games have a huge following, yet EA have priced this pretty low.
