Nice changes, surely in right way.
Personaly I hope that next batch will decrease effectiveness of top-mounted 0.50cals in AAA role and something about rocket plane 'trains' that start by phase C :)

Well, in my mind, it's much more Julien Sorel (from The Red and the Black by Stendhal) than Alain!

We will talk about mods when the time is right ;)

I'm sorry about this dumb joke but I had to. :lol:
Really looking forward for modding tool, being teased with the idea of using it two weeks ago and then nothing, no news, that's hard.

is it intended that the 17SS field arty has a range of 4000m? when all other allied guns have a max range of 2400m and the longest range gun for 91 field arty is 2600m and 12ss wespe are 2600m?

Well apparently AA is completely useless now. I got 2 guns out with my Luftlande deck and they didn't even do a quarter of stress to a P-38 fighter passing directly over it. Don't know how that's supposed to be "10% more stress for planes" but yeah. I'll just stop using them now and get a third card of fighters instead.
