On 22nd November 1941, a lone Heinkel 111 of KG 27 struggled through a violent thunderstorm whilst en route from the Russian Front to Berlin. The pilot, Oberleutnant Kolbe, made the decision to attempt to land at Breslau to then await better weather before continuing the journey. Wracked by the terrible conditions of the thunderstorm, the He 111 crashed into the ground – three of the five men onboard were killed. One of these was Oberst Werner Mölders; top scoring German fighter ace of the Spanish Civil War, veteran of the Battle of France and Battle of Britain and the first pilot in history to claim one hundred air-to-air victories.

At the moment, the team are working flat out on the next update. There will be a slight delay with the new Me109 skin, similar to what we had with the Hurricane ace skin, but it is planned. Apologies for the delay!

Ace of the month special...now 24H long

 

Maybe I should ask my boss to pay me my month fee every 24 hours, it won't take long till he says it doesn't really work that way.

 

And again xp bonus, seriously Gaijin, LIONS! ECONOMY! not xp.

read.... he was on his way tu Udet´s furneral. that was common way to transport someone fast in germany...a aircraft that had to fly that way was used to transport someone or the next arcraft that can fly long range was used try to fly with an fighter from russia to berlin .... its faster but more dangerous (only one engine) and you have to land several times for refuel.

I like the change of timing, even though I do play earlier in the day. Gave me a reason to try out the Bf 109E-3 & F-4 ...what great planes to fly  :Ds

Please remember that this is subject to change! But - the original plan was for the new skin to be for the 109E. I don't think a decision has been made yet on the requirements for unlocking it; a few people have asked for a more difficult challenge than the previous ace skins, so this might be a good opportunity.

No offence intended to you personally, but it might also be a good opportunity for Gaijin to listen to us more...not just for skins, but for mre game changing features or core features even.

 

If they read that people want to unlock the skin with a bigger challenge I'm sure they read other things as well about the game :)s

Fair point. There's a thread in the Historical Section which is where a few people have mentioned that they'd like a bigger challenge. The problem with that is balancing the requirements in AB, HB and FRB. A lot of people have asked for the promotional offers to last for longer, and for nations outside the main 5 to be featured. So... we're featuring other nations and trying to vary the tiers and requirements, but it doesn't look good on the offers lasting for longer any time soon. Anyhow, if anybody has got any questions, suggestions or input, please do add your thoughts - I promise I read every one of them!

I guess it would be to get a certain amount of kills within a certain amount of time?

 

I have a ton of kills with the E3 already, and I love that second skin.  So I cannot wait to see another!

 

But to get a new skin I wouldn't mind starting from scratch.
