Edit: Off topic but since it was brought up... Are there any plans to create a damage model for the SMT Cover. It would be pretty awesome if we could place FOB's with SMT covers in the mission editor similar to landing pads for heli's.

Not enough flare. Probably too fast. Probably too steep.

From my point of view Spitfire (in its current configuration) is very wieldy to fly. But I didn't try it in a combat yet.

Default 1944 Map Scale

What is the end goal for the 1944 Map?

From memory I think on release it will stretch as far north as south London. Are there any future plans to increase the map northwards to include areas of East Anglian where the US 8th Air Force had the majority of their bomber and fighter bases or even include areas of Lincolnshire where the RAF based its bombers?

Also will the map be extended east to include Germany so long range heavy bomber missions can be flown from the UK?

From memory what RRG initially aimed was only a limited Normandy map, no England at all, and no Germany of course. What ED plans now isn't stated but in Wags "clues" about what they asked for info, what isn't any statement at all.

S!

When you say just Normandy, what does that mean?

Cherbourg to Caen? It better go further east. And how far south will it go?
