The game is growing, and now the Italians have got their own tech tree - it's the first new nation in the 3½ years I've played the game. Players with Italian planes in the German tree will keep them, but they'll also be available in the new Italian tree, where one can happily grind away again. Any decals, medals and achievements are kept.

Anyone strolling over to War Thunder to play some arcade battles can look me up - search for Dix_Dogfight.
