Italian "new" pieces:

armour = old japanese one;
fighter = german messerchmitt;
bomber = I really dont know but Im afraid is more of the same "AH new"-old AA German bomber;
battleship = german biscmark?!?
cruiser = "new" german cruiser
transport = old german transport
destroyer = old german destroyer
submarine = old german submarine
bomber = I really dont know but Im afraid is more of the same "AH new"-old AA German carrier;
Now now...whats this deal?! Is AH joking or what?! 100$ ( probably 100€... ) and they reuse the same molds with different colours?!
You know where this will lead dont you? 4 years from now youll see another "development" in the A&A game and another promise of "super-new-molds-for-the-new-old-italian-nation..." probably 150$... they promise 1000+ pieces and we all get happy!!! Thats ridiculous.
I guess they cant throw a game with all the goodies... they have to squeeze all the juice...and the longer they do it, more $$$$$$$$$$$$$
Pieces are cheaper by larger numbers... the only costy thing is the MOLD of the pieces...
So where does this leaves us? Misleading advertising... Why do you think AH didnt give details/images about this game? Only promises... you go with the hype! and pre-order the game like there is no tomorrow...
Well, happy you!
