I do have a strong feeling though that Oleg isn't going to put all of the time and effort into the AI planes and not already be working on pits for them.
Beta testing for another company, it is certain Oleg is deep into planning the update.
Very likely UBI has a gold master, so 1C is no longer under the release gun.
I am pretty sure the push back of release date is UBI takeing more time to get everything togeter in that rather well provided special box.

I think it is incumbent upon us all to treat the colonials with some care, lest they be misunderstood with their excitable ways.
I say old chap, you got it spot on. Lets go down to the pub for a pint of bitter.

I beg to differ, swimming around the North Sea, I can rightly say they have a tidy sum of that smelly stuff.

All he has to do is ask.

I have over 1000 original period photos of 17's with all manner of appendages and bulges, some of which I have yet to figure out (nor anyone else).

Two show Gen Milch with his private Do-17S, with Adolf Galland.

Personally, would love to have a 215 with the 20mm installed.
