  1. I want to present here a history. She is like the famous history when a German Fighter escort an Amercian bomber in many details but more tragic... I will write all the flight, from takeoff to landing, with all the details mentioned by the author. But it was at dawn on May 18, 1940 that I discovered all the absurdity of the war, and that day marked for me the most moving memory of this short and dramatic six-week campaign. Short, it may have been for those who, in retrospect, have written the course. it certainly was not so for those who, for forty days, were plunged into a murderous action, as on the ground. Eleven Curtiss of the group II / 5 had taken off at dawn of Toul-Croix-de-Metz, under the orders of the commander Hugues. their mission: general destruction on the sector Longwy-Dun-sur-Meuse, altitude 5000 meters. At this early hour, we would not miss game. We were not disappointed. A quarter of an hour after our arrival on the sector, we intercepted over Conflans a formation of eighteen heinkel 111, without close protection of hunting. All of Curtiss's device went to the parish, but the Heinkel's rear gunners, who were flying in very close patrols, began to weave a barrage of fire which disassociated our attacks. After a clearance, I saw a plane coming up. behind me. I faced. It was Svetlik, a Czech of the group, who had lost his patrol during the engagement. He comes a few meters away from me and, with his cabin open, he makes a friendly gesture. I inspected the sky around us and I did not discover the others. The Heinkels had trained them. Lightning fights where we crossed 8 kilometers in one minute. The sun had risen above the horizon and was now blazing in the limpid azure. the visibility was excellent. I consulted my measurer. I still had three quarters of an hour of gas. I decided to stay in the Svetlik sector, a confident teammate despite his youth, and very brawling. My eyes went down to the ground. At 1500 meters below, the Chiers snaked through a narrow corridor, dominated by wooded rumps. A light mist covered Luguyon. Suddenly, my attention was fixed. Lower than us, a plane was returning to enemy territory. A Dornier 17 who, after a reconnaissance towards the end of the night, far inside our lines, returned quietly home, at very low altitude. He had not noticed us, for he did not deviate from his path. I pointed it out to Svetlik, who nodded. We dropped into a deep dive, engines at full throttle. The Dornier did not flinch. the three men were probably drowsing. It was not until my first gust, fired less than 100 meters away, that the pilot seemed to be concerned, as he tilted his plane to the left, straightened it and, after a very sharp bend to the right, to the ground. I went after him. At the water's edge, the German is recovering. My balls lapping on the smooth surface of the river. Svetlik, who was also attacking, stopped his right engine. In spite of this handicap, the German still approached the ground, and at a few meters altitude, obediently married the curves of the valley, while the machine gunner laughed at full flow. I tried to avoid as far as possible his range and I placed myself 30 meters behind him, sending him short bursts. One of them seemed to crush the glassmaker's dome, which stopped shooting. On the right, on the left, dominating us, the wooded hills were moving at great speed. I write the following later ;D
  2. I am totally agree with you and the reasons you exposed. Firstly, the developpers had surely many reasons to prefer a battle of Normandy 44, and I understand them, so we're not going to have a BoF now. Secondly, after finishing what they did BOBP, BOK,... they are surely going to begin (if it isn't already began) a Pacific campaign, and THIS is going to take a long time, several years. Thirdly, A BoF isn't in their mind actually (and I said it again : I understand them). Finishly, I am sure, convinced that, if a lot of people talk about this project, we can modify their plans or we can accelerate the developping of a BoF (maybe, who know?). I know that if a lot of people are really convinced and talk of lot of this (usefully) they can see that there is a big potential in this.
  3. I like you : we all have a favourite plane, because of his look, because of his power, or simply because of his history... That's my case and that's one of my many reasons who do that I want a BOF. Yes, and I love strange aircrafts (from all countries).
  4. Sorry, 🤐I didn't understand but now, I see, it was my point of view of what said the majority that I met in some other games at this moment.
  5. Yes, and I regret it now. But I don't delete it to be honest (because I am don't going to said "i never said it..."). Yes, and you have maybe reason. It was just to ask the question "focused history" or "focused balanced" beacause we're not putting the same aircrafts in the two modes.
  6. Of course, in the real BoF, Germans had a better system then Frenchs, they had some aircrafts with more good points and more powerfull than France, and if wa want to do a BoF, I think it is good to do according the history than according to equilibration. We have to accept that there were a lot of old aircrafts in real BoF and who fought during the invasion, and it is good to add some old aircrafts because "NEW" aircrafts weren't the most popular in all areas. We can't just add an aicraft to say "he is also afficient than ennemies" because in a lot of cases, it wasn't this in the real fights. But we can still add a few "NEW" aircrafts. In premium is the best way because it isn't everybody who buy Premiums aicrafts (even if they are a lot). After, if the aircrafts is really pleasant, of course, a lot of people are going to buy it.
  7. Yes, me and a lot of people think like you. But I think that, a day, the developpers are goiung to do a game like this !
  8. It is sure that if the devs try to maintain a balance, we are going to have aircrafts who were not very present (powerfull aircrafts) because they were all in developpement and german aircrafts were the best compared to aircrafts like MS 406 and H 75.
  9. I think we can do something like : -Curtiss H.75 -MS 406 -Ltécoère 298 but if it is too hard Breguet 693 / LN 411 -LeO451 premium : - D520 or MB 152
  10. Yes, you have reason, but the D 520 fought against the Italy and the Germans and they were not only 7 against the Italians at least.
  11. There were french aircrafts in this battle?
  12. yes, MS 406 and D 520 are better to add than MS 410. they were more used during the Battle of France
  13. After, what about add just 1 old plane of this period (like Amiot 143, farman F222.2, LeO H257 bis...) just to represent all of the old aircrafts of this period, because if you take just 1 type of aircraft (Like Amiot 143), they weren't a lot. But if you take all of the old aircrafts (during the battle) they was a lot !
