uh-oh, now we've got 2 members named after their favorite planes! i sense some rivalry up ahead Razz
maybe we should set a side topic just for these two, what's better? f-35 or f-16? it sure would suck if a new member a joined called Eurofighter typhoon! me personally, i'm more of a Sukhoi man myself. Su-37 flanker-F ftw! i'd cast in my vote for the Su-47 Berkut, but i dont vote for concepts or prototypes, only production models. (i realise i've completley contradicted myself voting for the XM8 in the US standart weapon poll. but seeing as it'll be designated the M8 in TAOW, i guess it's ok.) for glorious Russia comrade!!!

lol! It's funny you mention the Su-37 and the Su-47 (funny coincidence, specially since the team is making some "plans" with both of'em ).

Gotta love those planes.

About the versions we're including:

- F-22A Raptor;
- F-35B Lightning II;
- B-1B Lancer;
- B-2A Spirit.

If you want to watch the appropriate vehicle table (US Air Force - Planes Section), check this post:

the F-35B is the STOVL variant yes?
i thought it was;
-F-35A conventional take off
-F-35B STOVL
-F-35C Carrier varient (similar to B except smaller. can be used in naval mode perhaps? )

Yup, the F-35B can be considered as the USMC's (US Marines) Air Superiority Fighter in the Naval Mode.



-F-35A conventional take off
-F-35B STOVL
-F-35C Carrier varient (similar to B except smaller. can be used in naval mode perhaps? )

Actually we had an idea at first which was to include all those F-35 variants, but we made a rethinking and reviewed all their roles in game and concluded that we should limit their use.

The F-35A was going to be used in standard missions (but the F-22A eventually took it's role);
The F-35C had a role which was eventually taken by the F/A-18E and F/A-18F "Super Hornets".

The F-35B can be considered to be the later in game "replacement" of the Harrier (and will share some similarities like the "Hover Mode").

In my opinion, I think you made the correct decision on this one. unhappy smileys

My question, however, is have you given any thought as to what aircraft will be launched from the new Queen Elizabeth class of British carriers? I haven't seen a potential stores list (although I haven't been looking for one either), but it would seem to me that the F-35C may (and I stress may, because there may be something else out there that I don't know about) be a good fit for the new British carrier.

Thanks Thumbs Up! , we want people to rely on their good'ol F-16's and F/A-18's before changing to the F-22 and F-35's.

About the Queen Elizabeth Class, well, we are choosing planes from several European countries (we may add some "extra" changes on the carrier's ramp to make those planes more "realistic").

One of such planes is the French Rafale M (the French are also producing a very similar carrier project based on the Queen Elizabeth class).

Hey, that sounds good. Even better I should say. That way the EU side doesn't become more seemingly 'Americanized' with American weaponry. Something different and something native and representative of the EU. I'm for it.

Exactly, that's why we aren't including any European F-16's for example (even though it's a major model in use with many European Forces).

Other military units such as the M270 MLRS (which is a standard model in several Western European forces) won't be used as well (we are keen on using different units to give a more different feeling, we have many vehicles to choose from and so the EU will be the most diversified faction in TAOW).

Gotta love those planes.

Yeah, we are still making some "plans" Twisted Evil

We are even considering the inclusion of even more Sukhoi's sunny , though we are still "in talks" about it.
