Default only 12 planes?!?!?

Does anyone else think that only having a dozen flyable planes is pretty weak? epically when the game has been in development for some long.

i hope that there are plans to make alot more flyable planes in the future? is there going to be any American or Russian planes available on release?(i realize America didn't official enter the war until 1941, but there was still American planes and Americans flying in china and other places.)

Not Really, Its about the Battle of Britian, How many different aircraft did you think fought in that. As to American Aircraft, umm NO Thanks, Lets just keep it to the aircraft that were involved. Im sure if the time period moces along we will get more aircraft, But Since we are looking at a Battle of Britian sim, then im afraid you are only going to get Battle of Britian Aircraft.

Just the beginning, mate, just the beginning ... many more will follow, if the market answer is good.

We've got the 109 and the Spitfire. In 1940, these are THE two best fighters operational in the world. Then we've got the Hurricane, the work horse of the RAF, and the 110 the only German fighter that could operate over London for a useful time.

German bombers are well represented as are British planes like the Defiant

What others do we need?

There will be 10 flyable, BoB related planes.
Fiat G.50
Fiat Br.20
plus the SU-26, just for fun

From some of the BoB related ones, there will be variants flyable, so (so far is known now, but nothing official!) it will be 16 plus the SU-26.

Not bad IMHO , compared to the IL2 release or other combatflighsim games.

IIRC it takes them about 6 months to do the cockpit and everything else in order to make it flyable in CoD. The only mystery now is the E-4. Apart from that we're getting the full package, I do not know what you expected TBH.

I find this a very topic interesting.

I must say, I've often wondered the extent to which IL-2 flight sim "pilots" fly various aircraft.

I must tell you, I stick with one aircraft at a time - I find a single aircraft's flying characteristics tough enough to master without jumping from one type of aircraft to another.
That's not to say that I don't fly other aircraft - I do - but when I do, it will be for a relatively long time.
It would perhaps be interesting to run a poll on this.

"American and Russian planes".......in the Battle of Britain? IL2CoD offers already more flyable planes than any other BoB sim ever did. 12 planes is pretty much everything of importance that flew in that conflict, and even some more.
