Just played with the beta version and as far as I know I can buy different packs on their website that includes a few aircraft and campaign. But I have no idea whether it is possible to buy airplanes separately.

You can by earning currency; complete the training is the best start to amassing some dosh. Then maybe some missions to advance your rank and unlock more potent planes.

Sorry if I didn't get the game mechanics of War Thunder. But from what I understand the more you play it the more airplanes you unlock?. So there is no way to buy let's say buy a Bf109 without having to play missions to unlock these airplanes?.

You can get a 109 right away...but it will cost you Golden Eagles which is real cash. OR you can grind to get a 109 for free by playing the game and getting to a high enough level for the Germans to purchase it with Silver Lions. Confusing right?

Ok thanks for the info.
I find War Thunder really confusing when it's about getting new airplanes. I hope they make it simpler and better explained on their website.

Join the club, it's as if they don't want people to simply buy aircraft.. it's certainly not user friendly.

I simply want to buy an aircraft of my choice that is in game, buy it, and fly it.. if they don't allow myself, and others for that matter to do that they are loosing revenue... if they think that's a good business model they need their heads examined.
The fact that I can't do that means they 'Gajin' are loosing out, not me.

I totally agree, I haven't bought a single aircraft. Their business model left me cold. I was very interested in the sim until it showed up with mostly biplanes, all the single missions locked, and Lions, XP's .... WTF. If they had offered along with an early model hurricane, an early model 109, P51, Lagg, and opened a few single missions, I would have spent some time flying offline, building some experience, probably bought aircraft, and joined a few online missions. I think they missed the boat on drawing more customers long enough to stay.

That was my beef with it too. I really would rather just be able to buy what I want to fly and fly it. Even if it takes a while to release it. Their business model seems to be more geared toward the gamer mentality. For the product to be taken seriously by the flight sim community that will have to change IMo.
