Does this mean that TD can't do anything associated with BoB, or just that they can't do a 1940 map of Southwest England/Normandy?

It seems quite artificial to not allow the Bf-109E1 and E3 variants, since both were used for campaigns other than the BoB, starting with the Spanish Civil War!

Likewise, the Spitfire MkI was in service from the beginning of the war and was used during the Battle of the Netherlands and the Battle of France.

Does the fact that N-G subsequently spun off its shipbuilding business as a separate entity make it possible that further U.S. ships could appear in the game?

Would there be any possibility of getting a separate license from Huntington Ingalls Shipyard to model these craft?

Yes, that means anything BoB-related (including a Channel Map, Spit I, Bf 109 E-1, E-3 etc) is out.

Not at all, since 1C and Ubisoft have accepted NG's claim by signing an agreement. That agreement still stands and includes anything that was built by companies now or previously owned by Grumman.

You can wriggle like the mother of all cans of worms but it won't change the basic fact that there is something that keeps TD from doing NG-related aircraft/ships and that there is an agreement between the TD core people and Oleg which excludes further things.

The agreement for the Battle of Britain should have to be cancelled by 1C considering how is going on with CoD. Is a nosense considering we'll never have the BoB from 1C.

Do you guys have also planned some restyling for the German aviation, 109 e Stuka cockpits for ex.?

Great surprise the Kate.

I'm still interested to know if Western Front 1940 campaign stuff (maps of France and Low Countries, some aircraft like Fairey Battle or French fighters/bombers) is considered "BoB-related".

NG stuff is untouchable, BOB content is negotiable but like everything else it all comes down to personal interest when it comes to adding new things to the game.

So can I ask in relation to that;

There is apparently a '3rd party' redoing /improving/making good/'givin a little lovin!' to the Cockpits of the P-47? Is this allowed because the model already exists...or is the P-47 really never going to get that kiss and cuddle it really needs?

AFAIK we can change whatever we want on NG planes already in game, we can't add new NG stuff without paying to NG which is obviously out of question.


BTW is/was Republic part of NG ?

No.

See one of the posts above. It became part of Fairchild/Dornier, then went out of business.

So... When do we get the P 35?
