"There Have been some MAJOR updates to Fighter Squadron by the user community. When you combine these with the 1.5 patch, it's like a whole new game. Nations 2 adds Russia, Italy, France, Australia and Japan to the list of nations you can fly for. A new campaign called The Desert Fox campaign has been created. Numerous missions have been created, including 800 online missions. Weapon strengths have been adjusted to make them more realistic. You can download winter terrain for SDOE too.
