FYI - The RU WoWP premium shop is now selling the new premium aircraft.

 

Block Quote

New airplanes in the shop Premium SPECIALS
On July 30 Premium product became available to new aircraft: German Ar 197, US XFL-1, and Soviet BSh-1.

 

RU WoWP portal source link

RU WoWP forum source link

 

I suspect we will get a shot at these aircraft soon™. Of course, the BSh-1 everyone is ah-gog, a favorite on the RU server for this batch of planes. It seems the XFL-1 is a distance third as a plane to get for the hanger for the RU pilots.

 

 

Edit: model named corrected

I'm not entirely sure why they offer certain planes to some but not all regions. I can understand for holiday type events, but in general it's confusing. Is it a marketing trick? Are we supposed to want it more because RU has had them and we want them? Or is it more so just slapping us in the face saying "well we could have forwarded the file to NA; but, we couldn't care less about you guys, you give us your money, we give you game with no updates, you shut up and play like good american's."

 

I guess we'll never know the truth.

"They who hold the purse strings" as they say. I think its more of test marketing. They experiment a lot with the RU WoWP pilots. If it goes well, then the item goes to the other communities. If not, it ends there. I don't believe it is a bias thing.

 

Because WG loves the NA player base. I think it was explained to me that the WG NA communities support more of WG products by premium stuff (tanks, planes, ships, and accounts), than the EU and RU player base, except for the China.server. This is nothing to boast about, it is more on product statistics. Now my data is a year old and my statement could be incorrect now.

Hmm sounds like it would make sense to give us the stuff to see if we buy it, we are their most disgruntled player base who reluctantly still plays because we have no where else to go. If we buy it, anyone will buy it.

So you are telling us that the SB-1 is available on the NA server?

The XFL-1 and the ME-210 were close to my favorite planes before launch. At least I'll be able to get one of them.

Actually, they are two completely different planes.

The SB-1 and SB-2 were variants of the Tupolev ANT-40, a twin engine fast bomber; while the BSh-1 is actually the Vultee V-11, an American attack plane that was sold to he Soviets, along with a license to produce the aircraft by Kochyerigin.

 

Methinks that the OP's block quote contained a typo, since the patch notes clearly state that the new premium is a BSh-1.

Except the Russian page for the BSH-1 says SB-1. So probably not.

The difference is, the premium shop offers are better deals because if you include the cost of a hanger, then it is cheaper to buy the package rather than buy gold and then buy it from the in-game tree, where you must purchase the hanger as well for an additional 300 gold.

If you are willing to wait 2-4 weeks for a sale, in which case the price is 30-50% less to buy in game.  Unless you're buying something for a gift or have the patience of a little kid hopped up on sweets and caffeine, the premium shop is never a good idea.

Dreaming of better days.  When this game had full matches, fiery dogfights, and hope for the future.

In Mother Russia, we make up our own names.  (i.e. they don't even know their own aircraft). :facepalm:

The SB-1 and SB-1 were fast bomber prototypes of the ANT-40, with the SB-2 being selected as the production model.

The plane we are discussing in WoWP really is the BSh-1.
