  1. I certainly will buy a Do 217K with Fritz-X and Hs 293, but I doubt we will ever get that. (BoN would have offered that chance already, had the devs been interested). Also, if the bomber is fast and has a solid nose packed with guns, like the A-26 Invader, I could imaging buying it, too. But other than that... only if discounted, I guess.
  2. A mixed plane set of German and Italian fighters would not be capable of perfectly pleasing both groups, indeed, but then what plane set would? There are always trade-offs (see the reaction to the BoN plane set). Let's say the Italy 44/45 scenario includes the Bf 109 G10, the G.55 and the Re.2005. The new players get what they expect, a competitive 109, and all the others get fancy new Italian rides - even if they totally dislike the G10. ...which is not a given anyway, I guess a number of people would be happy to complete their 109 collection. On the other hand new players might take a liking to the Italian planes. Then some older fans of the series may not care for the Italians at all. And so on. There are a lot of variables, and you will never satisfy everyone. However let us not forget the other options like the late war Eastern Front. Bring in a late 109, a late 190, some bombers, and you got the German side covered. (Plus crazy stuff like the Bü 181 Panzerjäger). And I was not kidding about Manchuria 1945; at least carrier ops would not be an issue, even if research of Japanese planes still is.
  3. Sure, that's why I said "casual player". And seeing the target audience of BoX is not all that casual anyway, I would try an Axis plane set with Italian designs only. Well, perhaps one or two German bombers... But I don't know if the devs feel the same.
  4. Meine Frage war keine streng historische, sondern eher auf die doch sehr spezielle Situation im Spiel gemünzt. Rein historisch müsste man ohnehin anmerken, dass die 110 keineswegs ein kompletter Fehlschlag war. Das Konzept des 2-motorigen Mehrzweckkampfflugzeuges - für das die 110 ausgelegt war; sie war kein reiner Begleitschutzjäger - hat sich im Krieg grundsätzlich bewährt. Ja, das befürchte ich auch. Ich hoffe nur, dass sie schnell genug ist, um für böse Überraschungen zu sorgen. Wenn man was vor die Rohre kriegt, sollte es auch auseinanderbröseln. Und das hohe Visier könnte Vorhalten echt interessant machen, wenn ich mich gerade nicht im Cockpit vertue.
  5. Well, the Bf 109 series still has the G10, G6/AS and G14/AS to offer; the FW 190 still has the A9 (technically the A7, too). Other very late German fighters would be dangerously close to 46-territory, like the He 162. Still that is enough for at least two late war modules, like Battle of Seelow Heights or Battle of Rimini. The 109s in particular could help to make an Italian scenario more attractive to the casual player, suplementing later Italian planes. After that... Battle of Manchuria? 🙂
  6. I'd say this is the perfect opportunity to introduce Fritz-X and Hs 293, and the Do 217 to carry them. They were not terribly useful on D-Day, so it is ok not having them in BoN, but in the Med 1943... An all Italian plane set is a bit hardcore anyway, especially for people who do not own any other BoX. Same goes for the Allies, the plane set on its own represents a very special interest, even in a niche field such as flight sims. I am afraid a few big names like Spitfire or Fw 190 are needed. (And I say that as someone who would love to have an A-36!)
  7. And the scenario would be fresh. It is not often that you would see traditional German and US (build) naval fighters clash, and harrassing German ships in Fjords or protecting them... ah that would be great. And although sea planes like the BV 138 may not be hot sellers, they offer interesting new mission ideas.
  8. Kurz noch eine Frage zur Me 410 (wollte keinen neuen Thread aufmachen): wie sehr ist die als schwerer Jäger brauchbar, wenn es auch mal gegen z.B. eine P-38 geht? Dass man im Zweifel lieber nicht in der Me 410 sitzt, ist klar. Aber ist es völlig hoffnungslos?
  9. Depending on the timeframe and what part of Norway is chosen... A few Bf 109 G14/AS were in Norway to intercept Mosquitos. Then there are Ju 188s, and a number of sea planes, recces and long range planes. It could be done, but it is difficult. Might have been easier had BoN not introduced the G6 (late) and the A6... The Allied side offers a really interesting selection though.
  10. Von den Flugzeugen her finde ich das Szenario wenig ansprechend, v.a. nach Bodenplatte. Typhoon und Ar234 sind ganz nett, doch nur die Me410 begeistert mich wirklich - und die hätte man auch in anderen Szenarien kriegen können. (Was für so ziemlich alle Flugzeuge aus BoN gelten dürfte). Die Landung selbst kann echt toll werden, aber nur wenn da wirklich tausende Schiffe im Wasser liegen... wie ihr schon gesagt habt: wenn das eine eher leere Karte ist, bringt das ganze nichts. Eigentlich wünsche ich mir dann auch Lenkbomben wie Hs293, auch wenn die weitgehend wirkungslos waren. Aber dazu bräuchten wir wohl andere Flieger. Mir wären andere Szenarien eingefallen, die für die Größenordnung und die Art der Serie vielleicht besser geeignet wären.
  11. Danke sehr. Ich war damals, vor langer Zeit, als PraetorH unterwegs und freue mich, einige bekannte Namen zu sehen. 🧐
  12. Hallo zusammen! Nach langer Il2-Abstinenz wieder zurück... und natülich finde ich einen Endlich-Thread. Der Tag hat wieder Struktur.
