Now that the next plane set has been decided (Right?), do we know the pilots? As in, do we know the nationalities? Safe to assume on the Stuka and Val, but is one of the Hurricanes the Belgian? Anyone have a line or thought on this?
Pilots for the Second set?

Well, I have a Hasegawa 1/72 scale De.520 kit in German markings, and it also has Italian R.S.I. markings. I'd think we'd see two versions in French colors though, and then maybe one of the above two.
Same for the Cane', I'd think two versions in RAF colors, then one Belgium or Russian one maybe. But the Hurricane is such a classic British plane that it wouldn't suprise me to see all three come out in British colors and markings.
I'd also guess the Vals coming out kinda like the Zeros from set one.
On the Stukas, they could throw a curveball at us and make one Italian? Other than that, the obvious guess would be one Battle of Britian colors, one desert, and one winter.
The only Pilot I could possibly think of for this set would be Hans Ulrich Rudel, Stuka Pilot (great book, BTW).

Cool- I'm hoping for a Belgian pilot to continue my motif from WOW. With my group flies multiples of the same pilot and I always seem to be the only Belgian and like sticking out. Case in point all the Germans are in the Yellow nosed 109 so far. Just like all those White D VII's in our prior games. Oh well its the flying that counts.
