Tom Clancy’s HAWX’s first piece of DLC, the European Assault Pack, will release on April 23 for PS3 and Xbox 360.
Extra planes include the multi-role carrier-borne version of the Dassault Rafale, the Saab-37 Viggen and two Mirage aircraft designed for nuclear strike and long-range interception.
The delta-winged FB-22 prototype bomber, based on the F-22 Raptor, also made the cut. The XA-20 Razorback featured in Tom Clancy’s EndWar is in there too.
The DLC will run you 400 MS Points ($5.00) and $4.99 for PS3.
Joystiq has loads of images featuring the new planes. You’ll want to have a look.

Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. lead designer Thomas Simon told MTV that although the team respects Namco’s Ace Combat, they feel the gameplay is too closed and promise the H.A.W.X. will rectify that.
“What ‘Ace Combat’ did to the air combat genre is really great,” Simon said. “They [Namco Bandai] really set the basics of that [genre].
“But we felt, in general, it was a bit closed…the frame was too tight and people are getting used to that; we wanted to refresh it a bit, so we opened it via new gameplay features.”
In order to do that, Simon reckons you need to feel part of the world you’re flying around in:
“We wanted to put it in the real world, so you’re not fighting in places that have no emotion,” he explained. “If I’m fighting above Washington, it means something more to me. That was a real choice.”
Ubisoft announced today that Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. is to be released for PC, 360 and PS3 in March.
