Default Update May 4th, 2012

Our first update probably isn't much of a surprise for anyone who's been following this board, but we still want to officially announce it. Patch 4.12 will add a cockpit to the Hawk 75 we already have as an AI plane, and make it flyable. The cockpit will be for the Finnish version. Finland acquired and operated more than 40 Hawks throughout the war.

Default Update May 11th, 2012

This weeks update shows a little change in the scoring system. Patch 4.12 will introduce shared kills, which was historical practice in many air forces and has been requested by the community. It will no longer be the last pilot to put in a shot which gets all the credit. The below video shows an example from offline play.

Default Update May 18th, 2012

Today we are presenting an new feature for the AI, which will be included in patch 4.12. It will be possible to have AI taxi for take off on the airfield. This feature will work with spawning from stationary planes as well as with normal spawning. The mission builder has to set the route to the runway, and it works on any type of airfield. Below a video showing how it might look.

Default Update May 25th, 2012

Today's update show one of the smaller projects that will find their way into 4.12 - the repainted cockpit for the P-38. Cockpit updates are among the most frequent requests we are getting, so, here is one.

This week we'd like to announce that the Ki-45 Kai Hei and the Ki-45 Kai Tei, that have been added as AI planes in 4.11, will receive a cockpit and be flyable in 4.12.

The below screenshots show the cockpit, the gunner with the unique gun training mechanism of the Ki-45's rearward gun, a shot of what the big nasty 37mm cannon can do, and in case you're wondering what the second gunsight on top of the canopy frame is doing, a shot of the slanted guns installed in the Tei models fuselage as well as an idea of how to use them.

All screenshots are work in progress.

Default Update July 13th, 2012 - Part 1

This week update will contain a bit more pictures, since the last update is already quite some time ago. It ill be made in four parts.

Part 1:
We are happy to announce the often requested rework of the P-40E (and following) series - you know: the 'upward bent wings issue'.
In fact this is a completly new model, made from scratch by our member 'Macwan'. (note: all pictures are WIP shots!)

Default Update July 13th, 2012 - Part 2

Part 2

Lets present a few more pics, to show the detail, that goes into such work.

And because this question may raise up: No - the old skins will not match anymore. The decision was made, because the old mapping was awfull. So this model got a full new mapping - no shared parts (like half of lower side mirrored) anymore.

Default Update July 13th, 2012 - Part 3

Part 3

Additional to the two versions of the Ki-45 Kai (as AI) - released with 4.11 - you will get two further versions: Ki-45 Kai KO and Ki-45 Kai OTSU.
These two are earlier versions, easily recognizable by their shorter nose, which carries a central landing light.
All 4 plane types will be flyable in 4.12 naturally.

Default Update July 13th, 2012 - Part 4

Part 4

Last but not least we look down to the surface. Here we have two new german submarines - the Type VIIB (made by 3rd party) and the Type IXB.

Further on as a new feature, the heavy russian tanks T-28 and T-35 with their multi-turret layout will now be able to handle their turrets independently. This (multigun-)feature might be adopted to other units (bunkers, flak-turrets or similar) later.
