I’ve heard a few people around the community expressing uncertainty about the La-5FN and the Bf109G-6 and if they will be usable at all in the single player campaign. The assumption and understanding I had was that they would be.
If you wanted more assurances… we now have it.
From Black Six
1CGS developer and forum personality ‘Black Six,’ responsible for a lot of research and the excellent Ten Days of Autumn and Blazing Steppe campaigns, replied to a question on this issue with the following response.
Both Bf 109 G-6 and La-5FN will be available in the new Kuban career, G-6 from the end of June 1943 and FN from end the of [July] 1943.
So there you have it. Starting in June 1943 you’ll be able to fly Bf109G-6 fighters with the appropriate units in the Kuban Career and you’ll have to wait just a little longer for the La-5FN appearing in the campaign during July 1943.
Until the La-5FN appears you’ll most likely be able to make use of the La-5F (M-82F engine modification) too so that should keep Lavochkin fighter fans in the battle until the much improved FN model appears on the scene.
