  9. Or a mid '50s Fulda Gap scenario which would have many European airplanes.
  10. So you want the developers spending time on oddballs when they could using that time on subjects more pertinent to the game..
  11. So you would like to see the Fw190 with underwing MK103 gun pods? Just because there was few A234s with gun pods, they were the exception, not the rule. The rule should be the what was the most common.
  12. This link, http://109lair.hobbyvista.com/techref/systems/control/slats/slats.htm has diagrams of the slats.
  13. USAAF Combat Operations in WWll This extraordinary effort by Jack McKillop USAF, based on original work by Kit Carter and Robert Mueller, is presented here as a research aid for all those interested in the involvement of the USAAF in WWll. What you will find in these pages - remarkably - is an exhaustive account of every single operational movement of the USAAF from the day war was declared by the US on December 6 1941 until a month after the final capitulation of Japan in 1945. To those unfamiliar with this subject, the first impression will likely be of the sheer size of this involvement: the number of units and planes, their locations, the logistics of moving them around the globe in a controlled manner. It's all on a huge and unprecedented scale, especially given this was in an age before computers, where everything was done by hand. Since each page contains hundreds of names, dates and locations, we have provided a Highlighting facility within every page to assist your search for a specific item: just enter the term you are searching for in the Highlighting box and then scroll until you see your selection in yellow. Scroll to the bottom as the facility finds all occurrences.
