  1. One of my favourite rides in Il2-46 (granted there were many) was the A-20G, with that nose chock full of guns it was a hell of a lot of fun. Now I know this subject has been discussed sporadically from time to time, but seeing that we're not likely to be seeing the A-20G before the PTO, if at all, it would be nice having a few more options for the A-20B that we already have, say along the lines of the excellent A8/F8 arrangement, we could have an A-20B/C arrangement where the C options are automatically applied in the plane/weapons setup window. With an A-20C among other things we could gain the up-rated RF-2600-23 engines, beefed up armour and the self-sealing tanks, further options like feild installed gun pack noses, torpedoes (when they become available) and maybe even the soviet defensive turret or at least the twin flexible 50s. While thinking further ahead to the PTO the C models also served with the both the RAAF and the USAAF in that theatre of operations, not to forgetting the RAFs extensive use of model C in Europe as well. In the end I guess it all comes down to the availability or more importantly the lack there the of, of the already stretched resources, although in saying that this would be the kind of project that would certainly lend itself to a 3rd party developer, especially those keen to have a kick start as it were, in that it would be a much less demanding task to create the A-20Cs from the Bs 3D model than to build another type entirely from scratch. However there would still be the quite considerable task of implementing the C model into the game, which would require significant amounts of that already non-existent free development team hours to do. I also understand that the BoK development has well and truly passed, but maybe the C model could be offered as a collectors plane instead, or in deed along the lines of the RoF Modifications model. Using a RoF Modifications type model would also allow for the most requested upgrades to the other already released BoX aircraft, to be considered and implemented, perhaps at the same time offering an additional revenue stream which may hopefully even cover the development costs of said Modification sets. This should have perhaps been posted in the suggestions area, however I just wanted to gauge the general thoughts on the pros and cons as to the merit of such an idea, but if this thread ultimately ends up there then that’s fine and sorry in advance for the clutter. Cheers

    Excellent...... Just wondering will the new RAF pilot only appear on the western map(s), or will it be tied to the Spit IXe and the Tempest V? As to me the Ruskie chap just looks out of place sitting in the late Spitty.

    Yes, you are right, in that Aussie's can call their best mates the worst possible things, and as you observed mean it as a term of endearment. Peculiar as that may seem.

    Done, I hope my feedback helps, I did my level best to be brief and succinct (oh the 240 character limit helped out a lot in this regard). Although it was completely unnecessary, thank you very much for the discount code it is much appreciated.
