When I look at my purchase history its there ...with a serial number , but it wont show up in my module manager , so I just assumed it was a pre-purchase thing.
I haven't contacted them .... but I will now .
First time it's happened to me with this sim .

yes sure they did Ian
Has any of you crack fighter pilots thought about getting the saab AJS37 Viggen ? I have to say I am not that keen on it really. I mean it looks different, maybe you could say it is a good looking jet.It's a bit limited, as not many airforces used it, did they? None, just Sweden. Never going to see the real thing either ,are we?. I think the only people getting excited about this are the Swedes and who can blame them for that eh. I don't think it's much of a dog fighter either. More of a strike aircraft, which is not my area of interest. Its cool to go an attack a few ships now an again ,although its not the sort of thing you want to do over an over because it gets boring after awhile. In fact even firing missiles and hitting other aircraft is the same. No real skill in that ,not like a good deflection shot , but you can still do gunnery of course, so there is that. Anyway just one mans opinion. Feel free to shoot me down in flames if you disagree.
