  • Issue with the field data not being relaoded when you are in the spawnpoint selection area and you change the terrain fixed
  • Bug fixed where if a non-player-mission .off file (like the 1v1,2v2 air attack off files) were loaded and issued .fly command the settings in the off file (such as #wingmen, #enemies) were not being honored
  • Drone Wingees as follows: SBD and JU87 (non-bombay-doored planes) should now drop bombs, salvo settings now honored, Gunners will not fire if player's plane is on ground, less likely to oscillate in formation, and now possible to customize which planes can and can't have wingmen by a host setting

In addition to the 09.09.02 update, an additional (optional) add-on file has been released. The update contains template skins for the Ki-61 and Ki-43 and also includes an adjusted loadout for the Opel Truck.

Warbirds III is a massively-multiplayer World War II simulation focusing on the air war and taking place over Western Europe. Although the service is pay-for-play only, subscribers get unlimited free access to the new Combat Arena, where budding pilots can test their skills.
