Hmmmm! A bit of a mixed bag here folks! COM 114 & 115 - sound great titles and valuable additions to the series, no probs there. COM 116 - Seriously guys? Another F-4 Phantoms over Vietnam title!!! By the end of 2016 that will be at least 11 titles wholly or partially covering this topic, I think its been done (to death) now chaps! Tempest Squadrons - Ok count me in for that one (post war period and Tempest II covered I hope???). He 162 Units - Eh!? Don't get me wrong, I like the He 162 but a whole COM title devoted to it??? That's stretching it a bit isn't it??? Units??? plural??? As far as I know only JG 1 was equipped (except test and evaluation units perhaps) and even they only had them for a bout five minutes before the war ended! I think you could have chosen a more significant type than that....like the SHORT STIRLING!!!!! Lol!

Absolutely delighted to see Tempest on the list at long last. I had given this one away after that weird and wonderful book vote last year. I assume the question marks instead of a book number means that there could be slippage into 2017.
