Occulus says i look like a dick. NAh you are alright matey. ;)
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money." Josiah Stamp (Governor Bank of England 1928-41)

This is not the final list of changes. The final patch note will be posted later

 

The long-awaited 1.37 will bring many significant changes to the game. This includes:

    Progression system rework. The number of ranks will be changed to 5 and they will be based on actual periods in aviation development. In order to get access to the new aircraft a player will have to research the previous one in the branch. More details in our latest Developers’ Diaries issue.
    Addition of multiple new aircraft. Among them are the Soviet I-185 fighter and the heavily armed La-9; the German Bf 109 F-1 and F-2 fighters, and the Hs.129B-3 attacker equipped with an enormous 75mm cannon; the British Tempest Mk V ser. 2 with two Vickers P 47mm cannons; the Japanese Ki-84 series of fighters and many other enjoyable planes.
    ‘Custom battles are now hosted on our servers instead of the client’s computer. This will secure comfortable and stable connection for online tournament organizers, squadron fighters and those who just want to sharpen their skills with friends.
    Mission Editor is now a part of the Test Flight mode. Now you can try your newly acquired aircraft in a fully customizable environment: choose the battle scenario, weather, number and skill level of your enemies.
    Significant changes to the Dynamic Campaign mode.
    8 new maps for different game types.
