Cool by me, while I get all the hype people feel for the pacific, my heart will always be in the west. And perhaps we can appease some by slipping in the Fleet Air Arm that was there. ;)

Battle of Normandy Plane-set: 

 

P-51 B/C
P-47D “Razorback”
Typhoon Mk.Ib
Mosquito F.B. Mk.VI
Spifire Mk.XIV (Collector Plane)
C-47 Dakota (AI)
B-26 Marauder (AI)

 

Bf-109 G-6 “Late”
Fw-190 A-6
Ju-88 C-6a
Me-410

Just look at that lot! Of those thirteen aircraft, nine I'm really up for! Rather glad that the V1 is AI-only though... :blink:

Mossie will be really nice to get, but shame the dakota is only AI controlled considering how much of a role it played

Your inclusion of the Commonwealth aircraft (finally feeling like we're getting about as many as we are American aircraft) has caused me undying loyalty. If you have an oath of fealty you want me to swear - just let me know!

 

The inclusion of a Ju-88c even gives one a chance to do primitive night-fighting (even if the electronics won't be fully modeled)!

The Mosquito, B-26, Me-410, and Ar-234 are all aircraft I was hoping to see included with Bodenplatte, so this announcement is quite exciting for me.

Probably wont be pre-ordering this one. But still, Ill get it if just for the Mosquito and Me410.

 

Still holding out hope for the Pacific. Ill only continue to buy and support Il-2 if there is the prospect of going to the PTO.

Thanks from Baltimore, MD for the hard work that the IL2 team puts into this series. I am happy to support your continued development efforts by pre-ordering BoN!

My head understands why they would make BoN and I'll certainly get it.


But my heart wants the Pacific.

I am a happy chappy. That planeset is making me drool and the fact most of it fits with BoB is an awesome thing. I know some are disappointed, but honestly Jason made the right call with this one.

I can't lie, even with the Ar-234, Mosquito and Me-410 I'm disappointed. Even the planeset contains a lot of re-used craft with questionable value.
Make no mistake, I appreciate that you have a difficult task steering this ship in this day and age, but... aw 😕
