What about units that fit that theater, will they be payed as well?
ED has never charged for liveries that I know of, and has no plans to that I know of. I also know of no asset pack for Iran right now, we have plenty of units that will work.

P.S. And the WWII access bundle thingy too of course.

Happy landings,

The multiple installs, and early access arent for everyone, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, I know ED wants to try and get the merge done as soon as possible.

Assets from WWII.

Meaning period Sherman and Panzer tanks, trains, ships, anti-aircraft guns etc.

So eye candy as you fly around Normandy map and also used in Combat Arms module.

Well, I wouldn't say just eye candy since I think you will want some target to fire at, wether Shermans, Tigers, flaks, or a B-17, later expanded with several other IA aircraft units. I would say that's pretty much necessary in a full environment, not just eye candy .

I think an exciting aspect of this that hasn't been talked about too much will be the combined arms part. Sure, loitering in a jeep or doing tank battles has been mentioned but there are other interesting aspects.

For MP servers, not only could you have PvP in tanks, but I think it will be fun to man a Bofors AA and try to take out humane players flying at objectives. They could even set up a Combined Arms only server for those who wanted to do ground battles, though who knows how popular that would be since I imagine CA is not as popular as flying, being this is primarily a flight simulator.

And depending on how in depth they get with the 88mm (will it only be anti-tank or could you use it as AAA?) - imagine trying to take out bombers with bursting air shells. Might not be the most exciting, but probably a pretty novel thing to see in a modern day simulator!

Either way, should be fun for those of us that like the WWII aspect of games and simulators!

Or shoot at bomber formations with a battery of 88's
