Looking forward to this one! They knocked it out of the park with Bodenplatte

Great news! I'm excited! I was hoping to hear more about the WWI efforts as well.

I'm a little sad to see that so many of the bombers are AI only... I really enjoy flying them!

Yeah, a glaring omission for this theater of the war is no B-17 or B-24 sigh ... I'd be happy with at least AI versions of either. But seeing the Marauder finally getting some attention is a nice touch.

But for Normandy we are talking moreso tactical operations, not strategic bombing - besides, the current IL2 GBS engine cannot do the 4 engine bombers in its current capacity - so we get what the current engine can do.

(also, it has been floated around by the developers that the B-25 may eventually be made flyable, so the same may be true for the B-26 eventually as well).

I'll be getting this, eventually. But, it's gonna be a year before you see anything coming out. If I'm going to shell out 80 bucks , I want something I can run immediately. I'm just not big on the whole, "pre-order" thing. CLOD 5.0 will be available before that (I think!). And who knows...maybe even the DCS P-47. They said it's right around the corner.

Won't be that long - was 3 months before early access on Kuban, 6 months for Bodenplatte. You will get to play with the planes slowly and surely as they get complete until the entire project (and map/campaign) is completed.

That is something I really like about IL-2 GB.

I like that new aircraft don't cost as much as an entire sim (cough DCS cough)

Curious why you haven't? I think the old IL-2 had them since Forgotten Battles - Ace Expansion Pack.

(yep)
IL-2 Sturmovik: Forgotten Battles - Ace Expansion Pack Review @ Gamespot
Quote
V1 rockets are another challenging addition, since it is possible for fast fighters to pull up alongside them to tap them with their wings, thus nudging the jet-powered bombs off course. This same method was used by actual WWII pilots because shooting at a V1 generally caused an explosion that was large enough to heavily damage or destroy the pursuing fighter.

If you still have the old IL-2 installed there is a stock V-1 Single mission for the RAF using the P-51D.
Single Missions > RAF > P51D > P-51D-5NT N1

There are also a few V-1 Single missions in the downloads section at M4T.

(search V-1. No idea of their quality)

Bodenplatte was announced Nov 2017 and released Nov 2019, 2 years. If that time table applies to Normandy it will be 2021 before it is released. And if something in the Pacific comes next that would be in 2023.

That sucks.

they usually release the new fighters before that - next one will be the Hurricane which is a Collector plane.

Yep especially considering Pacific was supposed to be after Kuban. Oh well.

Was it really 2 years from announcement to release!?!? Didn't seem like that long... time definitely flies ...

I plan on definitely buying this one, I'm absolutely loving Battle of Bodenplatte, but will hold off until they start releasing the first couple of aircraft

Yeah, but to get to the Pacific we first have to go through every version of the 109 and Spit. Then, they'll start the Pacific planes off with the Seafire and it's variants.
