Whilst waiting for this game to be released in Australia , I am hoping already someone is working on an expansion pack that opens up the sim. to the broader Pacific war that enables us to fly British, Australian , NZ planes/ Squadrons such as Spitfires , boomerangs, Beaufighters etc. especially featuring the anti shipping role the beaufighter took on.

There's provisions in the game for British and German participants in the campaigns. For now, of course, only the American and Japanese options are activated. It seems as if Microsoft is anticipating an expansion pack for the European theater (BoB and bombing of Germany).

One thing about CFS and FS is Microsoft's reliance on outside programmers creating add-ons. Trust me these missions,planes,etc will come and soon.
The add-ons are the biggest reason MS flight sims do so well. It works and they have not strayed yet. Good work CFS team. kudos

Is there actually anything in Australia worth defending? I mean besides Foster's beer and the Crocodile Hunter what else is there?

I actually think they stuck all the CFS1 textures, and references in there, so it'd be easy to import what you have of CFS1 into CFS2... I am not going to fly an ETO plane for a looong, looong time though..

Errr Krusty, Bunderberg Rum is now owned by an NZ company. Sadly, it no longer is the Australian icon it once was :(.

Cheers

P.S. I too would like to fly the Beaufighter. The warbird scene is quite active in Toowoomba and there's an old bloke living here who was a squadron commander flying Beaufighters (ex postmaster, but I can't remember the name). I'll have to hunt up some details.

Shite! Bundy now Kiwi sheep dip....

I reckon anything with CUB after its name is probably worth defending.... and MAYBE even XXXX if it was a VERY hot day and IT was very cold

Cheers,

Guys.
There is a beaufighter you can fly. Sorry I don't have any pics but I couldn't get anything to work with it (even alt-print screen). Oh well.

There's a FS2000 Beaufighter at www.flightsim.com. Do a search for it in the FS2000 files section.

It needs a new skin (it has D-Day), and the guns need to be moved to their correct places.
The panel shows up, but you need to unzip the gauge files that are in the Beau folder to the Gauges folder located in the CFS2 directory.

It's pretty cool.

Finally got some pics :
