First game screenshots of Ju 52

Today we're happy to share with you these very first screenshots of Ju 52. Tante Ju is going to become the first exclusively AI-controled plane in our game.

As you could have noticed already, we switched to a more regular schedule of weekly updates. New versions are released in the middle of each week, but Fridays remain to be the special time when we are ready to share some interesting and important news with you. It's one of these days today. First of all, we are going to change the limit of players on dedicated servers and make it 48 pilots per server. During a test period, hosts will be sharing the performance data with us, and the future of this setting is going to be determined by these results. This extra capacity may help the mission makers to create even more exciting experience for all pilots.

Secondly, we are working on the unflyable Ju-52, so here're 3 screenshots with it for you on the forum. Obviously, it's not complete yet. We'll keep you informed about the progress of its development during winter.
