will be two types of canopies as option for Fw-190A-8 too?

 

Maybe, but no promises, it depends on time.

Just pls., don't go for post-war (WW2) jets. It's too soon... 
Plenty of WW2 planes and theaters not in GBs yet.

too fast for BOK(Korea)....
I think Ar234 is in Dev's pocket list

The written part says: "Deploy flaps below 295 km/h".

 

The other, handwritten parts are what I assume to be maximum permissible indicated speeds at certain altitudes:

 

480 km/h at 9 km

610 / 7

720 / 5

850 / 3

900 / 2

Nice surprise for the end of the year.

 

2018 was such a leap to make Il-2 the best WW2 sim on the market. It was a quantum leap over an already incredible product. The Dora looks awesome. Looking forward to 2019! Happy new year team!

Great update for the P-47 skins! Are the Fw 190 D-9 skins going to be 4K as well? They look like they are.

Totally agreed here. While it's nice to see that they will have the option in the future... there is so much more left to explore in WW2.

I love the images of the Fw-190D-9 and the video of the tanks destroying buildings. But I am disappointed that the Dora wasn’t released this year because the dev images of it’s 3D untextured external and cockpit were shown along with the P-47 which was in the same developmental state, and that plane was released this year. 

I hope that the late January patch will include the D-9 and the P-51, or another Bodenplatte plane.

 

Happy New Year and best hopes for 2019😀

how do people interpret anything other than ww2 in that statement in the first place? they said widen the aircraft pool, aka more aircraft for existing theaters. not add new scenarios...
Ar 234, He 162 there are more jets in WW2

The P-47 skins are lovely.

The Dora looks fantastic! That level of detail really gives it presence and a feeling of mass.

I got an Oculus Rift headset for Christmas that I will be setting up this weekend.

2018 was great and your much appreciated hard work will make 2019 even better!

Love seeing the D9 pics! Although I truly hope the Mustang can be released next to stop all the "K4 has no equal" talk.

Sadly, I don't think that will make that much difference. The K4 is still more advanced and higher performing than the P-51D. It's the Spit XIV that will make a real difference, if/when it is added as a collector's plane, along with the Tempest of course.

 

I'd love to be wrong, mind you, and I certainly Iook very much looking forward to the Mustang. :)

Great update, can’t wait for the new aircraft.  Haven’t tried the tanks yet, but based upon the latest update I might have to try.  You guys are the BEST...wonderful work, my hat’s off to you.

the tanks are very interesting and very fun to play around with already, when all the systems are in place for them they should be one of the best tank experiences money can buy

As long as people give the Mustang and Tempest a fair chance, instead of thinking what if we had [insert plane here]. I think we'll be alright.

I don't think fairness is relevant, to be fair.

 

The Tempest will be a major contender at low level, however, there's no doubt there. But at higher altitudes the K4 is definitely going to be top dog until we get the Spit XIV.

 

Not that there's anything wrong with that... it's not like we haven't had the same scenario for years now on the eastern front, after all. I still look forward to that Spit XIV though. :P

Wow.  I gotta lie down.

 

 

That vid was just effing stoopid good.  Is this the damage model we can look forward to for all buildings?  Bombing is going to be such a treat now, as if it wasn't already.

The tank footage gave me wood.  The paint looks awesome on the planes, and I don't even know how to express myself about the 190.  I think something between shudders and "woo, I'm spent!"

 

Seriously, you guys have really really outdone yourselves.

Just buildings we have built for TC map for close quarter combat with tanks. But they can be added to other maps in the ME.

Oo, oo, oo!  Fun fun fun!

 

I've been away from this sim for a few months due to RL issuses, but coming back - things just keep getting better and the creative possibilities just keep expanding!

 

Sooo cool!

I'll have to build a barnstorming obstacle course  for my squadron(with invulnerability on - or off!)!

Wow, what a nice DD! The D9 was a long awaited plane and thank you for the implementation of the two types of Canopies for the Dora. Hope we see it on the F8 too. Would be a unique feature in a flight sim, since the beginning of Flightsims in the early 80's 🤗

The extra details with the building modelling will make ground pounding extra good on these tank maps. 🙂

 

One thing really stood out but no one else has commented on it: The town in the P47 shot below looks extra delicious. Is this with the current public map tech? It seems to be way better then we have now. Maybe it's a graphics card/settings thing but I haven't experienced that degree of near photo-realism before.
