Still can't wait to take the P-38 for a spin. I'm still getting a kick out of BF3 (four service stars and more than 20 hours in jets) and I'm giving Ace Combat Assault Horizon a try, but Birds of Steel is just too far away.

ACAH isn't bad and I was able to buy into the story and intensity... for the first couple missions. The rest of the game doesn't come close to matching the intensity of the first mission and at times it substitutes challenge for difficulty, which can be very frustrating, and other times it's just boring. DFM mode isn't as bad as I initially thought and is a pretty intense way of conveying speed and motion. The helicopter missions are terrible. Terrible flight model (if it can be called that) and terrible camera.

The Ruhr recevied quite a bit more than just a few bouncing bombs in WWII so that doesn't garentee you will be bombing the dams at all. The Lancaster is in the game (see list ubove) but whether its the normal B mkIII or the bouncing bomb moddified B mkIII Special is unknown. Id prefer it to be the regular version as the Special is a one trick pony, it would be useless in a online Strike game for example.

Agree it's limited if it's a Upkeep 'Special' save for if they include the later Tallboy and Grand Slam 'Specials' used by 9 and 617 Sqns in which case bring them on!
That all said its been well documented here and Gaijen forum that strikes would ideally include a number of differing targets to hit- tanks, trains, viaducts, troop columns and ships to name but a few.
The fact the Lanc's there is enough to make me salivate like one of Pavlovs dogs irrespective of what exact type.

Well, I can't promise that you will be happy, cause I don't know, if you will.
But at least we have re-writed the whole AI from the scratch.

Well, I am not that "back" as I used to.
I have much less time, since I need to be on our forums as well, not counting the development
Google told me there is still lot's of activities here, so I decided to answer a couple of questions. Can't promise I will appear here often.
