1. The ability to bail out of a aircraft after a crash landing:
I know previous games had this and I think it would be really useful in a situation where your plane is on fire but your to low to jump out, or when you have landed and are being strafed. I know you can just hit the end mission button as soon as you are on the ground but that feels kinda gamie and I like knowing my pilot/crew are safe before ending the mission.
2. The ability to bribe your way out of being captured:
When playing as the soviets you earn cash for shooting down enemies or after completing a certain amount of sorties but it has no real purpose. it would be cool if after landing or bailing out over enemy lines you could use these accumulated funds to bribe guards to look the other way or the locals to get you across friendly lines, the player should not be punished for wanting to keep their pilot alive and this would benefit players who play on iron man greatly. (a currency could be added for the Germans as well, a weekly salary perhaps)
3. A dynamic tank campaign:
This would be similar to the career mode we have for planes where you create a character who would be a commander of a tank and be apart of a tank squad, you could go out on patrols, defend convoys, and assault/ defend major positions.
4. More bombers:
I'd like to see more bombers be added to il-2 nothing big although I would love to see things like B-17's in the sky but since the devs said that may be to hard on the engine I was thinking bombers like the il-4 and even the TB-3 which served on all maps we have in game, and the TB-3 could even be used as a paratroop dropper to counter the junkers transport collector plane. I just think the soviets are lacking in actual bombers in game and I dont wanna keep using lend lease aircraft and instead want to see more indigenous designs.
5. Service pistols for pilots:
This is probably the least useful thing on here but would still be fun to see, say you just landed next to an enemy supply truck or arty position you could whip out your good ol'service revolver and try to get one last kill just like in the good old days of ROF. It would also be funny to see people fly up next to a damaged enemy fighter and try to pilot snipe them through the cockpit.
Let me know what yuh think and what things you want to see be added to il-2!
