I'm hopeful we'll have a lot of options on the hurricane bout just the eastern front configs.

The new Collector planes coming are great news. I personally love the shape and the look of the Hurricane very much and I am looking forward to it very much.

 

The Yak-9 and Yak-9T are also great….I will buy them all. Hope to hear some more official news about them soon.

Thanks to the Dev Team.

...uh, because the team is based in Russia and has a large Russian clientele.

The Yak 9 was also very successfully used by French and Polish pilots. Will these languages be expected in the future? Normandy Niemen campaign for example?

I feel like Jason explicitly answered that, so you either didn’t read the words he wrote or you are simply being snarky.

Whatever you make, I'll buy it.

Great additions again. You guys are awesome.

 

Is there a roadmap from where we go after the official release of BoBP?

We're actually going forward with more Russian aircraft.

is the 9T very different form the 9?

from what i read in wikipedia it's just an additional 37mm cannon and they moved the cockpit back 40cm 

also what about the Klimov VK-106 would it b an option ?

Because the Eastern Front is the best setting for a combat flight sim. 

 

Really looking forward to both. 

 

Will they be worked into the existing career modes where appropriate?

I'll buy in. Disappointed all the same but I'm sure some of my favorites aren't others  first choice either.

To give way to the cylinder head of this imposing gun, the cabin was moved back 40 cm.

Lets just agree that continuing to develop Eastern Front aircraft is a wise, great idea.

I´m pretty sure about that. Hurri in BoM and BoS and the Yak9s in BoS and BoK careers.

We all knew anyway but I'm still super excited to hear these announced officially. Day one buy on both for me, mainly looking forward to the Hurricane, one of my all time favorite planes. The more games to play it in the better!

Great idea - I thought the aircraft coincide with the map release, so at this point the Hurricane II would be a tad late (..but welcomed nonetheless). The Yak-9s would be great if we had an appropriate map to match (Bagration comes to mind). That said - I have always been a fan of late eastern front battles, so in this case - the cart can come before the horse :) LOL

Also that leaves open more western types for possible future expansions in those theatres.

I'll likely get the yak but may be a hard pass on the hurricane for me.

 

Was really going for an allied bomber in the collector planes.

Hurricane is an insta-buy for me, I just love the plane. Will probably not get much chance to fly it online and I fully expect to be outclassed but if I minded getting shot down then I would never fly.

I will probably get the Yak-9T too as it was my favourite eastern front fighter from Il-2 1946 and I'd really love to see this team's interpretation of it.

BoS and BoK will be appropriate dependant on the earliest variant they chose.

Cool DD. The most satisfying one-liner yet. So it's not semi-official anymore?

What mods might the Soviet Hurri have? A quick search showed at least some mg's replaced with 2 Berezins or 4x20mm cannons. Anything else interesting?

Thanks, day 1 buy for me! Not only I want to fly them but also hope to keep the dream on!
