Default P-40E & K Wing Camber Angle...

Hello everyone,
I'm so glad to hear that the P-40E & K's wing angles will be corrected in 4.12!! I've always been a fan of the plane and have flown it through the years in Il-2 (1946). It is especially unique because it was in so many theaters and fought for so many air forces throughout the war. But from the start of its introduction to the flight sim I've noticed that the angle of the main wing had been exaggerated and mis-represented in the 3D model. (I've attached a few diagrams I made that display this error... I overlaid actual blue-prints on top of screen shots of both the old original model and the one that will be introduced in 4.12) I appreciate what the original modeler accomplished but wished the error would have been addressed back then. Oh well... can't wait for the new release!!
Cheers!

No you won't.
P-40 will not make it into 4.12. Maybe in the fix patch. I'm not sure about it's current status.

This makes EL a sad EL.

Cool

Don't worry guys, I did big efforts for the Warhawk but was a bit late in last steps. And it's in good hands now.
I hope for the earlier as well.

Oh...That's a shame but thanks for the update El, I'm sure it will be worth the wait

I think you will enjoy the Hawk 75 when it comes. It'll be a great thing and the video already shows it flying.
