Rumors

On October 21st, 1998, WarBirds© 2.5 was released. The next version will be WarBirds© 2.6, which will improve the strategical aspects of the simulation.

The only plane we're sure of so far is the Kawasaki Ki-61 "Hien". We can still hope for a Hawker Typhoon or Hawker Tempest.
Also, a British twin-engined bomber, like the Vickers Wellington, would be a logical addition to fill the "early war British bomber" slot; but it might not be included in version 2.6.

As a counterpart to the German Junkers Ju 52/3m, the Douglas C-47 Skytrain would be a logical choice as an allied paratrooper transport.


Strange sightings...

These "planes" have been spotted several times in the virtual skies of WarBirds; the first one is a German manned rocket, the other one is the result of an overworked programmer's mind. *8)
