Given that the developers have already stated that 4-engined bombers aren't currently a practical proposition, this is a rather pointless thread. And if they are ever to do such aircraft, I'd have thought that something which played a more significant role in the war (B 17, B 24, Lancaster etc) would be a more sensible start.

Pretty sure that the "practical' reason was Huge bomber streams and the nature of the ETO map were said for not expecting "heavies"

 

4 engine aircraft already exist in RoF

 

As this is a thread started about German 4 engine aircraft does that exclude other Air Forces having any, or even starting with others?

 

As pretty much the only mass produced German 'heavy' a bit of discussion and a poll to judge interest is hardly a bad thing.. 

 

The fact that FW- 200 Condor were not used in mass formations is more of a plus point  :)

 

As one of the more elegant WWII aircraft it gets a big thumbs up from me, even if future plans are already laid out

 

discussion about nice aircraft is never pointless  :biggrin:

Even though the dev can not make it, it is always interesting to discuss about it and how the players would like it.

Plus, it allows people to know more planes.

There is quite a good (short) two part article on the history of the FW -200 Condor

I love the visuals on the Condor, but it had its flaws. Wings structure too weak among many other. But it was liked by its crew. Personally I seldom flew it in Old IL 2 , It is hard to find use for it and harder to not get attacked and shot down

Yea the structural issues of the early variant (pre C-3) would be unfriendly to new players also the runway lengths will need to be considered. That said it's bomb load and somewhat average defensive armament aren't game breaking and it wouldn't be out of place. However The time required to such a beauty would be would be quite extensive in which smaller, more purposeful aircraft could be made eg. the La-5fn and 190F/G

I think the bomb load can be bigger on short runs, it was kept down for increased range and was more used as a stalker plane than a bomber

Please not...we don't need an aircraft, wich never fitted the role of a heavy bomber, nor we need a heavy bomber in a conflict, wich mostly were fought with tactical air warfare than strategic...

True, but who are we to delegate resources in 777 staff. It is a legit wish. I got mine , witch was the HS 129. Ironic for being mostly on Red side.

But I wished for a A 20 too, and it was granted too. 

Going to big bombers in this game would mean bigger maps and 1943 onwards western Europe with defend the reich scenario. Not entirely a stupid idea

S!

 

 Convoys knew they were in trouble when a FW200 was spotted, not only from the attacks but also submarines being alerted to the route of the convoy. No wonder they wanted aircraft to shoot it down or chase it off thus the CAM ships etc. It has appeal and not often told about even it played a part in the WW2. FW200 was also part of a daring rescue mission of a crew manning the weather station N of Russia during WW2. The crew had eaten polar bear meat and got the parasite. Ships or flying boats could not get there as ice prevented it so the sick crew cleared a makeshift runway on the island where the FW200 landed. It had a punctured tire which they also changed on spot and the plane got off the island and back to Norway safely. And russkies never knew about the station even it was basically at their backyard. It was found only after WW2.

+1

and as a patrol craft it doesn´t really fall under the problematic "massive amount of 4-engined bombers are not doable" category.  With the Bok planeset, the LW side does get a lot of "same-old,same-old" new planes, so a bit of exciting new land as premium might be good. Albeit I would think of the FW189 as plane that would be very iconic for the eastern front and that is kind of missing..

 

 

or some storch/po2 duo with an added mechanic, that ejected player aircrew does not de-spawn as long as the player spectates them, and that they can be rescued.. so you can save your killstreak-pilots live if a buddy goes through the pain of finding you and picking you up, like it actually happened some times on the eastern front.

Gorgeous plane, but i don't know if i would actually fly it. It doesn't look all that fun to fly. It doesn't scream fly me, if that makes sense...

Well, actually it was a long range oceanic reconnaicance aircraft, with a primary tast to find convoys. In early war, with not  much AAA on ships, it was used for low-level ship bombing. But when AAA appeared "en masse", Fw200 never flew close to ships. Just followed a convoy and radioed coordinates for U-Boote.

 

The only and very ill-fated action on the whole Ostfront was a supply missions into the Stalingrad pocket. Never before and after it was used in the East.

The Condor was one of the large planes that took part in the resupply of Stalingrad. A lot were lost doing so.

The Condor flew into Stalingrad, and did loads of important work for the Germans. The only game that really gives them due credit is Atlantic Fleet, where they ominously appear to bomb your destroyers and guide U-Boats to your convoys, and are nearly impossible to shoot down. Besides, we could have an artic convoy mission where the Germans have 15 Condors and must find the convoy so U-Boats can position themselves to attack it.

Although it may be placed in a more appropriate timeline/theater it appeared at Stalingrad and is a unique aircraft in the LW arsenal which is the point that other posters are making.

Understood, of course.  :salute: I just don't see the practicality of modeling such a complex plane right now when it can't be used in the manner it was most commonly used (maritime patrol).

its hardly all that more complex than a he-111 h16 woopy 1 extra engine (add the extra entry to key bindings and screen display for engine 4)
Thats it.

We dont need the extra 111.
They should Pull the HE-111 H6 and replace it with FW200 C4 then have the HE-111 H16 as the medium bombers/HE

Come mods on Mode (it might take people(Good modders 1 weekto pump out one of these i bet with all engines working.

I recall reading in one of the threads that summarized the TS interview that Jason and Han (can't remember his name) did that Mods On is not going to allow the introduction of new aircraft - logically so, it would break their business model and bankrupt them.

 

With that said, Jason opened the subforum for paid (I think?) community contributions to the games development so it could be possible that community members can contribute their 3D work or otherwise and receive a cut from 1CGS/777 in the future.

100 octane fuel was in wide  spread use during the BoB by RAF FC.The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed. There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.   Amiable to the Amiable; Inflexible to the Arrogant We never refuse to correct something that was found outside ED if it is really proven...But we never will follow some "experts" who think that only they are the greatest aerodynamic guru with a secret knowledge.

Do-217 would also be nice, but I think the Reds could use another bomber like a DB-3F/IL-4 or a B-25.
