Ah nice. $50 seems a bit much for DLC, do they add a lot of single player content besides the new planes?
I guess when you're the only legit combat flight sim on the market you can charge whatever you want lol

New Scripted Campaign - Pre-Order Achtung Spitfire Today!
Achtung Spitfire! is a 20-mission single-player Scripted Campaign featuring a fictional storyline that is inspired by historical events. Your character is a young Russian pilot from Siberia serving on the North Caucasus Front in late May 1943. The campaign features missions inspired by the Soviet 37th and 56th Armies attack on the German 44th Army Corps west of the city of Krymskaya. Your regiment will be flying the famous British-built Spitfire Mk.Vb which was loaned to the Red Air Force via the Lend-Lease program. Meeting Spitfires in the skies of the Kuban region came as quite a surprise to the Luftwaffe!
You are assigned to the 57th GIAP, which was part of the 216th Mixed Aviation Division of the 4th Air Army, an elite Guards unit. Your regiment is deployed to Slavyanskaya airfield, near the town of the same name. Experience fierce aerial combat in the skies above the picturesque Northern Caucasian region of the Soviet Union. Defend coastal ports on dawn patrols, escort friendly bombers over enemy territory and help suppress AAA batteries, but always be on the lookout for enemy fighters!
Achtung Spitfire will be released soon in an upcoming update and was created by our friends at The Syndicate. You can make a pre-order by visiting our Official Webstore HERE.
