  1. There is an chance the Ju87D-5 might be one of the 5 aircraft in an late war eastern front expansion, especially considering there isn't much other choice left for the luftwaffe for that timeframe.
  2. I don't know what will be the next theatre for Tank Crew (And if there would be one) but North Africa has some potentional options like El Alamein, Kasserine Pass, Mareth Line.
  3. Only 3 StuG D and 4 StuG F/8 where used in the entire North Africa campaign (including Tunisia), the most common tank destroyers in North Africa where the Marder III, Panzerjager I, Semovente 47/32 and Semovente 75/18.
  4. I understand the main problem with lack of documentation for midway would be the TBD, D3A and B5N so how about another theatre like New Guinea like suggested by Davesteu here : If some aircraft lack documentation they could potentially be swapped with another which you can't do with Midway (A6M2/B5N/D3A/F1M). B25 could be swapped with an B26 or an Hudson. Ki43 or Ki61 with an second A6M version. Ki48 with the Ki51 or another japanese bomber listed below. G4M, I might be wrong but as far as I know Ki21, Ki49 and G3M where also used from New Britain/Rabaul airfields so there are several options.
  5. They might still go for an Do217 if they decide to do an Italy/Sicily campaign.
  6. Agreed, another problem is lack of new aircraft for an 5x5 planeset which the devs have mentioned is the most profitable for them. Considering how much time it takes to make maps compared to aircraft I can only see extra maps coming from outside sources like the Leningrad map you mentioned.
  7. Yes and no, in general bombers require more work then fighters mostly because of the number of different turrets that have to be created, this is especially true for an b17 or b24, so yes you could say 2/3 fighters could be made instead of an medium/heavy bomber. On the other hand back in devblog 227 the IL2 team mentioned the P51/Tempest/P38 and an ai version of the B25 where the most difficult aircraft they had to create in there teams history, while this shows how difficult an ai version of the B25 was for the team it also shows the P51/Tempest and P38 where each individuality more difficult then the Pe2/Ju88/He111.
  8. Ar234B-2 was never used over Normandy (Only unarmed prototype), P40E1 and Mc202 where never used over Moscow (was P40B/C and Mc200) and Fw190A3 was never used over Stalingrad, all these aircraft are still as of today sold as premium edition and flyable in career mode with an battle they never where used in. Before Normandy was announced several people have mentioned the Fw190 Stalingrad argument was outdated and I agreed with them since the aircraft included with Kuban and Bodenplatte premium edition only included aircraft that actually where used and had there historical airfields, this changed with the Normandy announcement (Ar234). Personally I do prefer if they only include aircraft of an 5x5 release that actually where used in battle but at the same time I also am not fully against it if they have an historical use during other battles, like the Ar234 during Bodenplatte or the P40E1 and Mc202 for Stalingrad.
  9. Any chance we would be able to carry British bombs?
  10. The main problem why they won't expend the map eastwards is the city of Paris, same reason it won't be extended northward (London).
  11. Moral implications has no influence on which aircraft are made for il2, if it had they wouldn't have made the he111 and ju88, especially release the he111 with stalingrad. And this is still true as of today since they are going to include the V1.
  12. Jason mentioned 1 month ago that we likely will get the D-22.
  13. I don't really understand the turret exclusion since Ju87/Do217/Ju188/Sm79/A26B/P61B/Li-2/Il-10/Tu-2/Pe3Bis all have from 1 to several turrets. Only 27 Mosquito FB X VIII where built/converted and also might be an modification to current planned FB VI. As far as I know the Mosquito B Mk IV where used only with Lancasters/Halifaxes bombing strategic targets in the night. Where exactly are the following aircraft going to be used in the current maps? All french aircraft All Italian aircraft minus the Mc200 Bf109E3 Gloster Gladiator P63 (As far as I know only used by Ussr in Manchuria) Finnish B239E IL-10 La-7 Yak-3 Yak9U
  14. Not in europe as far as I know, which is an important customerbase. Yes which is why I also noted it fitted for an collectorplane for Bodenplatte and not for Normandy. As pointed out by =27=Davesteu only 2 prototype recon variants where active over Normandy no bomber verions which makes it an unhistorical addition for Normandy.
  15. An experienced bomber pilot will maneuver and put it's aircraft in an position which benefits it's gunners which will make high-angle off approaches much more difficult and considering the ju188 has better defensive armament and higher speed it will add vital seconds that increases it's chances of survival and/or it's gunners making an hit. Sure an experienced fighterpilot will most likely win the engagement but those same pilots will often have no issues facing spitfires and p51's. And what new role will the C-6 have that the Bf110 doesn't have already?
