Dear friends,

Trying to squeeze in more functionality, new content, improvements and additions for you before the holidays, we've prepared another update 3.009. This time, the main feature of this update is the new content: Collector Plane, famous Soviet light bomber U-2VS which is developed in cooperation with "Ugra-Media" company. At the moment it can be used in QMB and multiplayer modes, but we'll add new Career mission types especially for it (Stalingrad and Kuban ToWs) next month.

..............................

There are two new scripted campaigns available. One made by =BlackSix= happens at Stalingrad after 'Blazing Steppe' and continues the story of the German pilot that started in '10 Days of Autumn' campaign, while another made by =Gambit21= is dedicated to A-20 squadron operating in the skies of Kuban.

..............................

U-2 is overall such a fantastic model, superb modelling, superb skin details, superb FM and DM IMO. Also slow speed flying besides a train while shooting from the gunners seat... :cool:

Impressive list of improvements. I'm kind of cold to the bi-plane honestly but I'll add it down the road as supporting the cause more than any real desire to fly it.

Nice update, very welcome to see that the timer issue has been solved (re-trigger in deactivated state).

Too bas that the corresponding counter issue remains unresolved (counter doesn't fire after reactivating when it has been triggered to threshold value while being deactivated).

It is like a WW1 airplane.

Can`t see [edited] because there is wings everywhere.

Can barely take off and lift its own weight.

It is really slow.

It is really fragile.

The guy in the backseat looks semi retarded.

 

I love it!

Guys, thanks a lot for the update! But for heavens' sake, that XSolla crap is driving me nuts! WTF, it declined payments 3 times and now it says that there's additional security verification on my purchase! I will always try to purchase from your website, but you got to do something with this, otherwise I'd have to buy through steam.

Love the wing-mounted gun. First time I fired it I wondered where the noise was coming from!

Last night I was getting frustrated with Peshkas lauching rockets at an empty field in QMB.

This has now apparently been fixed, I hope those same PE-2s will now try to attack my airfield which will make the entire mission more interesting and rewarding.

Keep up the good work, devs!
