    first things first, Prime may still be on the player council after all....hope so, it will make for great inroads with the devs and props to Prime!. 1.43 hit the DEV server and test of some of the new aircraft are on YoutTube. So if they stay consistent with their timelines then the 1.43 will be out in a week, 2 at the most.!!!

    Thank you -.-

    The new arcade tank battle mode is a bit confusing, will be good to see it in practise. (Haven't read the dev blog yet)
    EDIT: Watched the video, looks good, I like the changes :)

    Can't wait for air race :D

    Vehicle presets will be soooooooooooooo nice.

    Is one of the new maps the urban tank map?

    British PBY - nice :)

    Don't scare me like that, for a minute there I thought it said T-50.

    I'll believe it when I see it :P

    Sooo....more sturdy than a paper airplane now?

    0.0 so....many....1000lb bombs...

    I'm curious, does anyone use the machine guns on tanks?

    Yeah, can't remember the default key binding, never used it myself....can't see the point.....maybe killing the crew of a open top vehicle?

    Unless its being added in 1.43 I'm pretty sure you can't use the MG on tanks. I think they may be referring to the sounds for aircraft .50 cal and are using the wrong nomenclature in the notes.

    Had a bit more of a look into this, it seems that we can bind a key to the machine guns, and there are crew skills for the machine guns....but we can't use the machine guns. It is possible it is coming in 1.43 but it's not in the patch notes yet. Historically the idea behind them was to protect tanks against anti-tank infantry and to just mop up infantry, but since that doesn't apply here I think they will be used as a minor anti air defence. The word on the street is they will be like bomber gunners, AI controlled unless you want to control them.

    Food for thought.

    Mainly evenings occasionally during the week, mostly at the weekend, but I find it hard to stick to a schedule at the moment. Will be on tonight and possibly tomorrow :)
