Given that the BoS map looks like this:



And the Midway map will look like this:



I think I'd better practice my dead reckoning navigation for next time.  Razz

At least it seems the Ruskie aircraft have an RPK-10 Radio Direction Finder that points towards your home airfield, which comes as standard in some and as a mod for others.

Unfortunately the Spitfire Pilots just have to use the force. Razz

You can set your Squad Tag to 19RAF_ in the Account settings on the BoS website.

If you just do 19RAF then there won't be a space, ie it would be 19RAFConflict rather than 19RAF_Conflict

Very useful for attacking enemy ships on the Kuban map.  Razz

They also bounce a bit on the ground as well, so be careful if you're making a very shallow low level attack otherwise you might overshoot the target.

I don't know if this is a new sale, but Battle of Moscow is currently going for $24.99 (£19) Standard or $39.99 (£30) Premium.

The Premium includes the P-40, which is still $19.99 (£15) if purchased by itself, and the Mc.202 if you're into Italian things. Laughing

Just bear in mind that Battle of Moscow is set in 1941, so the aircraft will be less competative online against stuff from Battle of Stalingrad (1942) and Battle of Kuban (1943), although it will give you something to fly if the server is set to early war, as most late war ones include the early stuff as well, plus the P-40 is good for ground attack as the Spitfire doesn't have any bombs.

Also not sure how it works with Steam vs Standalone if you buy different modules from each.

i can only find for now that if you use steam you need to puchase bos first before buying bom to make it compatible.
As i have bought the game on steam i guess i have to wait on a discount there

Apparently you can buy BoM standalone to use with BoS steam:

Dietrich says he mixed the two as well.

19RAF BoX P40 Skins Download

Put the four files in *BoS Base Folder*\data\graphics\skins\P40E1 and overwrite the two files (as I updated mine as well).

Although I'd like to branch out to new titles, my videogame funds are quite limited and have to be spread out to cover other departments apart from flight sims. Those P-40s sure look great, though!

Fair enough Razy, I expect we'll play DCS WW2 and BoX alongside each other, at least until SoW decide what they're doing.

There's also a 40% off promotion for collector's aircraft in BoX at the moment if you own BoM, you can see the codes for it in your account:

I've updated the main skin pack with skins from the BoM aircraft, plus the P-40 skins:

Now re-make it as a full fidelity multi-player multi-crew flight sim with realistic graphics. Razz

Like B-17 The Mighty 8th mixed with Silent Hunter V.
