£25 for a tier V aircraft?  I don't think so.

Think it's more the £4 per pop for the unique supplies.  Considering you can get one free per week and after a while they just give junk, this is the bigger rip off.

You're right.  Since I have all the aircraft in the game, more gold than I need and won't be buying any more premium time, I'd discounted the crates entirely anyway.  But, you make a good point.  This isn't a good bundle even for other players.

I have waited a mission for a special aircraft for some time. I have unlocked almost all aircraft I like and these special missions give another reason for playing this. Its pity though that the time schedule is too tight for grinding the aircraft itself. At least for me personally, because this opportunity came suddenly and during summer I have planned variety of activities outside. Could the missions time be prolonged for tokens, as it used to be before with other aircraft?

Anyway, happy to see some missions that give another point for playing this.

Regarding the price of the aircraft, I would consider it as a option if one really wants the aircraft, but is unable to grind it.

Hope to see more missions for special aircraft in future (maybe repeat some from past years, everybody has not played it from the beginning of times).

There are two more aircraft in the files not yet released into the game, the replacment for the Iron Maiden Spitfire (the "Spitfire PR") and the Russian I-21.  I suppose it's possible there will be missions for them, though it's possible they might appear in the shop as did the Twin Mustang.

No, this option is not available for this particular event as it's not an Operation Order.

Did anyone buy this bundle ?

There's a rumor that (for some time?) it came with Special Project equipment ...

I-21 is in game.  It was a supertest reward.  I've run into one on NA.  They are o.v.e.r.p.o.w.e.r.e.d

 

Hopefully it's never released to a wider population.

I'll probably buy it on NA.  Doing the missions here on EU is sapping my will to play; the "and win" condition on the RAF missions was brutal.  if your teammates aren't great, RAF planes can be hard to carry with.  I finally caved and switched to my Blenheim because it can influence the game more than my Spitfires/Boomerang can.  I /might/ have been able to influence with my Tornado and Hurricane, but with all the turn fighters out, I didn't feel that would be a wise pick.

It was announced to be a 'special reward' plane ... but heavily nerfed probably.

God, I hope it's nerfed.  The one I have run into is completely ridiculous.

Yeah, I know.

I ran into several on the CIS server ... they're terribly OP.
