TF6? . why not TF 17,480? ;)
TF 3.5 will come out. CloD will be busy for 6 months, just enough time for SoW to run a campaign.. lol
and it will dry up again.

TF3.5? Didn't we already do that one? TFS are going backwards?? Explains a lot.

It's a direct hit at DCS indeed. And a direct response to so many Luftwaffe fans wanting best hotrods. We know this from DCS all too well. I'm not even excited because I've been flying this for 3 years.
Its a sudden move for sure, because as you noted there are no bomber or attack aircraft. Its quicker to develop and most wont care since they can dogfight for eternity.

I'm dissapointed and feel cheated but I guess it will sell well. For the next 3 years there will be no Pacific which means little interest from me.

RoF is a weird move since for the past 4 years it was claimed that no revisions of that game will be made in foreseeable future. Tanks are move into the are I care little about.

lol who knows, anything is posible

but this will hurt TF5 sails, as now BoX guys can get their west front fix in BoX, why buy CloD, even now they have in BoX good mix of USA/RAF airplanes, and they will get west front map in next 6-12 months there. And just few weks ago i was sure they would not mix west east in box :) how things change fast

In book:Bodenplatte: The Luftwaffe's Last Hope you can see OOB for germans for dec 31 1944, pic:

and here some one posted picture of battle, you can see bases for Luftwaffe:
https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/32 ... /?p=533179

they will probably need map of 350x400km for that

So planset for German side is historical, missing only Fw-190A9 and Bf-109G10, G6 will be in game as its colecters airplane
And KG51 flew 10-20x Me262A2s with bombs, so all is ok for germans, but like most complain no Spit XIV and good number of squadrons had them on bases that got atacked. So expecting it as collectable airplane in their future when enought peps complain about it missing :)

On Discord where we were discussing what the new acronym for Bodenplatte should be considering BoB already means something else. Reddog had the perfect answer...IL2: FUDCS :lol:

It seams 777 wont make Med or channel map stuff, atleast untill they see what will be with TF when they relise their med stuff
https://youtu.be/fEPu1c-tHLY?t=8339

Also he say first airplanes from BoBp to expect are Bf-109G-14 or Spitfire Mk.IX around March or April 2018:
https://youtu.be/fEPu1c-tHLY?t=7066

Also he teses after some one asked about why always 10 airplanes, that its realy 12 as they for BoK did 10 + this last 2 extra collector G6 and La-5FN, so better start asking for Spit XIVs as one of extra collectors airplanes for BoBp

Reson for not having Spit XIV is that Spit IX is so similar to Spit V they have now in BoK, so its easyer for them to make IX insted XIVs

Also reson for having B-25 is he say it can be used in EastFront, and PTO if they go there, and plan is to maybe make cockpit for it also

He also says about A-20 that if they could they would task some 3rd parties to do mods for it, to make it fit BoBp for example, although he wonders how there is so many moders interested in 46, clod and dcs and doing stuff there but not in BoX when he askes on forums for moders to help do stuff for game...

Regarding Typhoon he say he go for Tempest as he feals thats more atractive of thouse 2, but he would like to make Typhoon in future also, and it will be easyer as they will have Tempest by then

Also he was asked if they will have engine mods for Spit IX like 12-25lbs boosts or MW50 for 109s, but it didnt seam like he understod how easy is to do this maybe Han would have better answers with technical stuff, he was saying somthing in line that they would have to model thouse systems and so it would be timeconsuming...

Someone asked about P-47 will it be D28 or D30 block, jason said they didnt decided that for Allied airplanes but will go for historical to that operation, and then select from there for exact series or blocks of airplane models.
