Bomb fuze feature is made in such a way that if the new “Bomb Fuzes” difficulty option is turned off, bombs behave like in 4.09 (zero arming time). When diff. option is on, the arming UI has extra fuze type selection box and available detonation delay values are limited to the values available for the selected fuze.

Links to the patch can be found at the 1C Publishing forums. They have found one CTD bug that is affecting some users, so look for an update to this post soon.
Update: New beta hotfix that addresses the CTD issues with multiple core processors.
This challenge places you at the control of a Lerche with little time to spare. Two incoming B-17s are enroute to destroy your base. Your job is to destroy them both and land in the fastest time possible.
Included in the archive are 3 tracks by Tolwyn, in his best attempts in about 10 tries. See if you can do better.
Place the mission inside the quicks folder. Place the tracks in the records folder. Register at the forum and post your efforts. These challenges are in the same spirit as the Barf-O-Missions.

A new Barf-o-mission has been posted in the files section.
This mission has you attacking an approaching IJN contingent with the new BAT bomb. Form up with the B24s and release when they do. Protect them until they are clear of danger and RTB to your carrier.

Here’s to an exciting new year! IL2 4.10m was recently released with a maintenance release sure to follow fairly soon. Hopefully we’ll see some squad members jump on the SEOW bandwagon and start flying with Faust and Tolwyn again. We’ve been having a good time at Midway carrier hunting.
I had to make some new noseart now that, yet again, for the 9th year of being involved in this crazy game. Enjoy!

Things are now going well with the squad. We have about 5 members flying again, and with the new patch (4.09m) being released, and a MOD iteration that we’re using (HSFX), all seems well with the world.
The community is treading on a slippery slope with all these MODs, but we’re working on it.
It’s going to be a while before the site and squad start showing signs of life. With the new patch, it’s my personal hope that we can start flying again, and maybe with the new AAA MOD some more flexibility will present itself for server compatibility. We’ll see.
At any rate, swing by the forums and say hi. We need more content editors. If you’d like to be one, please contact Tolwyn.
Been going through some old CD and DVD data discs looking for Amie’s Neverwinter Nights character backups and discovered some Forgotten Battles tracks from December 2003. In watching one of them, I actually remember the mission. How wild is that?
My best-guess estimate is that I have over 600 NTRK files from FB that still playback just fine in today’s Pacific Fighters 1946. Wow. If you haven’t already checked the Pilot Face thread in the forums, please do so. I’m very enthusiastic to get the squad faces on pilot skins.
