285

 

Dear Pilots,

 

Today’s Developer Diary has two cool items to announce.

 

First, you can’t stage a Normandy invasion without some dashing British gents jumping out of airplanes. So, we built some.

 

Full news is HERE.

Very nice! I'm looking forward for the AQM. It will help the game a lot having an easy way to create more specific single missions.

 

Btw. @Jason_Williams the link to this thread from the Dev Diary:

I'm pretty excited for the AQM too. It'll be a huge addition to the series.

 

I wanted to add to my earlier comment, this picture is a dream come true to me. It appears that we might be able to have mixed A/C in a flight or possibly different model versions of say, the P-51, in the same formation. My hope is that we will soon have the ability to assign different skins in a formation and command aircraft outside of our immediate flight. Whether or not these wishes transpire, I'm impressed with the continued improvement of the Great Battles series.

That is awesome!  The AQM looks like it will fill a nice niche, of when I don't really want to commit to my career in PWCG, due to lack of time.   LOVE it!

That's definitely some loving for those of us that mainly play SP.

 

It's also very nice to see the how rapid the production for BON is going.   Keep it up!  Thanks devs!

The new AQM looks interesting. I just hope that it will retain the settings between game updates, unlike the current QMB. :)

It's the antigravity device installed in the Stiff Upper Lip(TM). Top Secret, very hush hush, you know.

yep but it would be nice to select type of enemy planes.

I want to fly missions in Me262 against B25 with fighter escort (which I will choose). I cant see that option in AQMB sadly. Buts its WIP

 

and what about attacking bombers with Me110 escorted by Bf109, from the picture you can only select one group of planes.

Advanced quick missions look perfect, can't wait!
Would it be possible to create a quick mission for coop like that? 

Keep up the great work!

Are those circles of stars and crosses a standard historical mission in the old career mode?
If so, it's really like meeting an old friend who hasn't seen for many years:friends:

Looks cool with the AQM. I sometimes miss that old Campaign system you had before BoK was released, but to know that it's coming back in some way is great.

 

BTW, will this apply to Kuban and Rheinland maps as well?

 

:salute:

Excited about the campaign. Will it come with fixes to the AI so they don't drop their bombs on AA and then strafe the tanks with guns?

Looking forward to the new campaign by Blacksix, I'll be sticking it in the basket when available.

 

The new QMB looks interesting too.

 

Have a nice weekend. :drinks:

The AQMB looks very exciting - much more than I hoped for. Lover the variety of ground targets.

 

Does starting 'in air' mean starting in the air over one's home airfield - or starting in air 'close to target'? The latter would allow getting into action faster (without it mission length might not actually be 'quicker' than some dynamic campaign missions)!

 

Any idea of the typical mission length?

Everything appears to be coming along nicely, but what about DSR?

AQM is great news! Very much looking forward to it.

 

A campaign featuring the 190 is an immediate purchase for me.

I hope the AQMB allows me create long range Bomber missions where active targets, AA and some fighters waiting me after 2 hours flying 🙂
