Kinda disappointed that Eddie isn't a unique pilot to go along with that Spit :P

***

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Thanks! Also, I have Iron Maidan playing on in the background today. I hope this will turn me into Eddie.

Of course ...

I'm on 4/5 airfield captures now, took me a while. Still wondering if airstrips also count, lost track somewhere.

Thanks.

 

Although, I couldn’t apply my beta emblem to the plane like I can with my pre 2.0 aircraft.  Please fix ASAP, along with the anniversaries.  There’s no technical limitation prohibitting what I ask for, that worked just fine pre 2.0.

 

Also, why just the pilot?  No album artwork for nose art, IRON MAIDEN logo for emblem?  No EDY for plane call letters?  Licensing issues?  Skeleton staff?  Loss of talent at Persha?  Like the WG anniversary tweaked hangar from Pacific event, seems half baked and amateurishly implemented.

 

But, thanks again for the collectable!

Comparatively speaking, the Supermarine Spitfire Mk Vb IM is not better than an upgraded Supermarine Spitfire V. In fact it's marginally worse. They really should make the plane more unique by having a pilot with unique skills attached to the plane, or special camo that provides unique benefits, or maybe special equipment that is tied to the aircraft that provides unique bonuses (like a special unlimited supply of incendiary ammo that cannot be changed/removed from the aircraft). As of right now I see no reason to really fly it, even though I have completed the mission for it.

You can farm an airfield more that once.  Had 2 maps with 1 airfield and I capped each one twice.  Go for it first, then as soon as the bad guys get it back go again. I used my bombers to farm airfields only took 3 games.

No Aces High emblem, no Iron Maiden camo, just turning the pilot into Eddie whenever you fly the plane. Seems like a serious waste of potential compared to Sabaton's tank

Got the plane but Eddie did not show up. Is that an issue?

The in game pilot model is Eddie, no matter which British pilot you mount in the hangar.  So you only ever see the Edmeister in battle.  Good thing they fixed the mouse scroll zoom function a few months ago...which was fine until 2.0 dropped...
