I already know that planes will have damage as in chucks of canvas flying off your plane, but is that all about planes? What about busting your tail controls, breaking your flaps, damaged engines that spew oil on your windshield as they slowly fail and decrease in engine power? Will damaged planes have worse flight characteristics than undamaged ones? How will pilots repair their planes? Does this mean that an airfield will have an actual role now (as in land for repair and rearm). What about ammo (Is it gonna stay unlimited or will we have to return to base and land). And what about controls? Will we have separate view controls and realistic flight models? In BF4 you can't even barrel roll because you can't use your rudder. Will BF1 have flight mechanics as... let's say... War Thunder or Heroes and Generals or IL-2 Sturmovik and so on?
In BF4 energy advantage means nothing and dogfighting comes down to better throttle control rather than real maneuvers.
Aviation played a huge roll in WW1 and it will be a shame if you don't do it justice...
I know you cannot reveal a lot, yet, but you can drop some hints at least. Please
