Hype at producer forum was intense as BadBud said.
People throwing money on their screens and asking who/how to bribe to get it released earlier, standard sillyness nowadays.
Seen the same bandwagon at DCS (currently for the F-14) but learned long time ago to ignore that group behavior.
To my surprise though the disappointment-threads showed up the same evening, usually takes a bit longer
Reading the comments I can't really see what's wrong with it, it is heavy and will never climb like a rocket unless after a dive,
Maybe the vocal ones are those strictly flying airquake and hoped to an automatic kill-them-all plane?
Only the famous ruggedness seems to be off, goes to pieces like any 109 they say.
Personally I've always been interested in the P-47 (along with the P-40) but considering I still have a hard time to enjoy my time in IL2GB I'm holding short on this one for now.
As it looks, this P-47 is still my only option currently with DCS going its usual path trying hard to become irrelevant on the sim market.
