Weeeeell... 'L' whining 2.0?   ;)

 

Now I have a mission in life - to become astonishingly rich so I can get myself a Storch. It takes off in about 15 metres, seems to have a stall speed similar to my old Granddad in his zimmer frame. Just wonderful!

 

It goes without saying that BoX needs this right now. The Heerergeschictliches Museum here in Vienna has one. I wonder if they would be willing to sell it...

I would love to build or restore a Po-2 to Airworthy Status, if possible with M-11 or Rotec R-3600. It shouldn't be too difficult to port Plans and everything into CATIA or any other CAD Program and Precision build one from Scratch. 

I'll soon have my Glider and Motor Licenses and maybe even my Bachelor of Engineering and that would be an amazing Project.

My current Project is this Bird: 

 

Oberlerchner Job-15 180/2, hasn't run in 4 years, hasn't flown in 6. (Unfortunately the Pics of the Bird's Nest in the Engine are lost.)

She is a better Tow Plane than the DR400, and that is quite a high Mark to beat. People that have chartered her called her their little "Schlepp 109". 

(And you can see the left Half of my body in one Pic)

HnqzEzf.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the thing I fly the most: 

47000+ Take-Offs and Landings, 8000+ hours and whole bunch of those with me at the Controls. Also Put roughly 40 hours of Work into that bird this December alone.

I think you are right, it would not be easy but if you was to build a replica ww2 era plane this must be one of the simplest to build, love those exposed control wires . Easiest thing in the world to inspect and maintain operational.

I'm for both of these because it is good to have a balanced theatre. I have always been a big fan of the Storch being the first plane I build for CFS2 and CFS3 There really is a lot you can do with it that you can't with normal planes.

It had one of the highest survival rate of all the German planes because the slow flight confused the attacking planes and you can easily fly in forests etc. That is of course if they get the flight envelope right.

If Russian side want to haul cargo around and keep game historically accurate, we should ask for drivable trucks.

We could also have a truck race track with enemy units bombing the road :D Flak trucks would be great too !!

I guess the 1000 tons of Cargo hauled by Li-2 at Stalingrad and 5200 casualties evacuated along with critical fuel supplied to very forward units during the Counterattack does not count as historically accurate

 

Li-2's were very active at Stalingrad, even when you do not include the Bombing raids on important bridges, the German positions in the city and airfields and only consider their pure transport role

Fingers crossed for Po-2 and Fi-156.

Li-2 has retractable gear and therefore would be OP.  We couldn't just shoot a wheel off and then watch them faceplant when landing.

Well so the JU 52 was totally waste of time, let me tell you that your ignorance is painful to see, if you really believe JU 52 was the main transport for German war industry . With your reasoning you would play with trains , horses and walk 3000 Km

And the arrogance is quite familiar after all this time, the tone have been from the axis side, Everything you got need to improve and all planes from russian side are in need to get slower , less effective. And now any request from that shall be cut down with less accurate historical knowledge. Love this

I would love to design a Storch campaign.

I like the challenge of designing an immersive experience without combat - it's all about ambiance.

This I enjoyed with the old editor, and it's even more fun now with the capabilities of this new version which is quite a bit more powerful.

 

Pretty much everything I used to wish I could do...I can now do.

So yeah I'm all about the Storch, recon, VIP transport, rescue missions...that visceral feel of flying around it little more than a box kite - bring it on.

 

If the the Devs need reference I have a fully restored one very close by.  :)

Wasn't it Spear that fled or something in a storch near the end of the war and crashed famously? I have a vague memory of a high level Nazi crashing in a storch at the chaotic end.

I would buy the Storch, PO-2 and Li-2 (also a Chaika...). I think all of these add different dimensions and would be fun to play. Also, with the upcoming Field Marshall mode, they could work scout planes into that easily to give more and/or better information. That way teams that use the scout planes would find them quite beneficial.

A Storch would add a new mission type - cable laying :)

On a more serious note - would buy any of those two aircraft immediately. There were so many Po-2s at the front.. And Storch would be an incredible aircraft to have in BoX engine - think of the ground handling and STOL characteristics. You could just land as a helicopter flying into the wind.

I'm pretty sure they were hit by AAA and crash landed (von Greim was wounded), but since Greim had been summoned to Berlin in the first place to take over from Göring as head of the Luftwaffe, they had to fly off again soon after.
