When the F11C is given out, what happens if you already have one in the hangar?

You should get the gold value, in this case, up to 550 (might fall into the "sales" and be up to 275 gold).

I couldn't make out the details. When does this stuff happen? And, What are the specials? When I enlarged it, it still wasn't readable.

Right click and choose "view image" and it will give you the biggie. 

 

Only thing I am confused about is whether the 1 battle required is during this weekend or during the 5x weekend. Not that it matters, since I'm sure I will do both, lol.

I right clicked. There was no "view image" option. The closest thing was "Show picture", and it was greyed out, so I couldn't select it.

This question spans all games mention. The free vehicles that are to be awarded, will we get them automatically when signing in the game server or will we have to win them in missions? I ask this because the 360 Edition doesn't have missions yet so im assuming just playing a game during the time required will get us the free vehicle automatically.

This is what you need to do! States it at the bottom of each image for each game...

I definitely want to know this.

Buy $60 package for the F11C, only to have it given out free to everyone later that summer? Not cool Wargamming, NOT COOL!

It happens.  They could have not sold it to you and kept it unique to the original folks that managed to finagle a Euro code and get it installed before they cut it off of NA.

 

Short of the limited edition tester planes, you pretty much have to assume that any premium you buy may be given out at any time in the future.

Or earn.  I'm sure, for example, that the Model 81A-1 will make an appearance in the premium shop at some point.

I like the look and sound of this event. I am interested in the F11C because I want a Premium trainer for my American LF pilots but am not certain which existing one to buy. Besides, I cannot argue with the modest requirement to earn what could be a valuable asset for my American pilots.

 

I am looking forward to this event and eagerly await the other specials that are certain to come out as the August Extravaganza progresses.

Buy the three pack in the gift shop, or wait til next weekend and see if they put them on discount.  All three are great.

Next weekend.  If you look under the in game Missions tab there is one entitled "Party Favor" that starts in 7 days.

Does the free Curtiss F11C come with a free hangar slot? I do not have a free slot in my hangar. :unsure:
