That is the correct site.
It has nothing to do with Steam.You do not need Steam to run BoX.
CLoD has nothing to do with il-2 BoS. Just treat it like an entirely different game and register on the site with an email/password.

ok, thx.

but the plot thickens. i go to register, and it says user name (Zyk) is already in use. if this is not connected to steam, and i don't have an account here, would somebody else be using that name, or is it actually connected to steam somehow? total confusion on my end, now.

It's just a coincidence.

Hi All, would anyone know when the Spitfire is available to purchase as a single collector plane?
I know it is still on early access in the Kuban.

The Spit should be available to purchase on its own as a collector plane once Kuban is fully released (in the next week or so would be my guess)

1 or 2 shells from the Hispano is all she takes...

That is absolutely true. The Hispano ingame is about as effective as the 23mm VYa cannon, so proooobably a bit on the "too effective" side of things. *G* But to be honest, since the Spit mostly has to fight vastly superior opponents in terms of flight characteristics, I don't mind that much.
