I will be keeping my eye on this one. Should be nice to see some variety in the Battlefield setting.
I am pretty sure more aircraft were in that trailer than in all of WWI, but I don't think anyone was buying Battlefield games for the realism anyway.
The Germans fielded 168 aircraft at Verdun. That's nearly as many F-22s we have in service. The French fielded around 80 aircraft IIRC. Given that the battle took place over only a couple of hundred square KM, it's pretty easy to imagine times of high aircraft concentrations. So, yes, BF is not realistic, but nor are things made completely from whole cloth.
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
