Thanks for the heads-up DB.

I particulary like the bit about increasing formation size. In B-17 The Mighty Eighth (which I still have on my computer, and fly) formation size was limited to six (6) aircraft. Which I found underwhelming. Didn't do a lot towards creating an atmosphere of menace.

Was supposed to be released today but at the last second they delayed it. Of course, on various fora this delay has caused a scheissestorm of "I'm not buying it now!" hissyfits and conspiracy accusations that might need Mike Lindell's involvement  🤣   

So, the wait continues. Here's a vid that shows what we can expect, at least visually. 

You can see most of the graphics work went into the UI and B-17 interior. Exterior still looks very rough. However, they revealed today that they are indeed working on the B-17 exterior. Here's a screenshot they posted:

Price on Steam is $14.99 USD.

Happy to hear that they are looking to imporve the exterior graphics; it does need it. The interior looks great.

And am more than happy to wait for the release. Some people just want everything NOW!!! :classic_rolleyes:
