I think he means the Odessa map?

 

 

 Ah, you are right. It's Odessa.

 Even more appropriate.

This is actually one of my favorites from il2-1946 series. But hmm looking at the design, where was the Center of Gravity on this aircraft or center axis? Seeing as the pilot sat behind the wing, its kind of interesting. P.S. I would definitely buy in as well

I have no clue what to Expect from it. What is the Performance Data on it? Speed, Climb, what is the Altitude Sweetspot? For me it's in the same Category as 109E and I-16.

Romanians are absolutely needed in the ETO.

 

Good choice IAR81C.

 

We know the Team would like have a Romanian itself too, soo....we can still hope.

 It's about there in performance. Close to the Emil.  A German Major, who flew the plane in 1941 said it was pretty close to the Emil. Similar climb with the Bf109E up to 5000 meters, similar turn. Takeoff and landing are very good, 20-30km/h slower than the 109.   slower in dive, due to the manual prop pitch control. 

    

 This model is made for Warthunder.

I flew the IAR80/81 a bunch in IL-2: 1946 and it was a lot of fun. The guys tended to call it a Romanian FW190 because of the wing cannons and the radial engine but really it was more like the Bf109E in performance. I really liked the plane and I would love to see the current generation of engine tackle this plane at some point. Would be great to see.

 

I'd definitely buy it. No questions.

   Back in Il-2, If they had the IAR in the plane roster, I'd fly it no matter what other planes they had in there. Had tons of fun fighting LA-7's and late war monsters in the IAR. The C version had some mean guns and tons of ammo, so was still dangerous for anyone used to outturn other late war planes. :biggrin:

 

I don't fly much in Warthunder. Mostly fool around with the tanks in the mud, but I'll buy this one the moment is released. 

 

 IAR-81 made at BOS standards, I'd buy five. :lol:  :fly:

It´s a really interesting plane.. I would feel much more motivated getting BoK with this then with just the G4 and another heinkel which I find ok, but rather "meh". I think the german side needs a bit fleshing out on the borders... to keep the balance better.

Hey Jaws!

 

You know I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

 

A really fun aircraft, and good as a mud mover as well.

 

:salute:

No disrespect intended, each has his/her own interests. More aircraft would be great, but we already have some variety. Personally, I'd sooner pay for a Crimea map than another aircraft. For me, a wider variety of terrain would bring more interest.

This is developing into one of the nicest IAR's I have ever seen in a *cough WT cough* simulation. Honestly, I would buy it, but if it were offered along with an Li-2 for a collector plane, I would buy the Li-2 first. Now that the LW has a way to drop troops and resupply, it seems only logical for the VVS to have the same opportunity. It is a lovely looking model though!

I like the IAR.81 + Hurricane Mk.  II Idea. The Li-2 would probably be a Joint Development with the C-47 and thus maybe after Kuban, going into the Pacific as something like an Interrim?

 

However, I would like to see an Il-4 before that. I think it's the most desperately needed Aircraft on the Russian Side at this point.

I would buy this in an instant. Finally something that would make flying Axis genuinely fun.

Yes, but IAR is a must have for ETO.

 

You have variety adding Italians and Romanians who were there with their hown Aviations.

The question of what to pair a theoretical offering of the IAR80/81 with? Hrmm... for the early war the I-153 vs IAR80 on the Odessa map would be superbly interesting. For something more middle of the road I would love to see the Hurricane show up so Hurricane Mark II vs IAR80/81 would be interesting. It could be a mismatch... IAR80/81 and the Li-2.

 

All of these would be interesting additions to the series. I know there is still the desire out there to see the Bf109G-6 and La-5F. The team may elect to do those between BoK and Midway simply because they are based on previous models and wouldn't need a redo. But I don't want to discourage the cool ideas here either. Either way I'd be interested in some more Collector Planes to add to the mix.

Wasn't the C version simply the B with the bomb racks removed?

In fact, seeing as armament was really the only major differences between the IAR 80 and 81 models it would be simple to model the whole lot as one plane: IAR 80A & B, IAR 81A, B & C using  'Unlocks' :rolleyes:  for the different options.

Definitely a needed Collector plane - I'm in.

Cheers.

The IAR and the I-153 would be a package made in heaven.

 

Historical side note...

 

Take a close look at the tail section of the IAR 80/81.   To some of you it will look, ummm... familiar.

 

NO cookies or kittens awarded for guessing it's origins, but it is just another interesting facet of this aircraft.

The IAR-80 was the fighter and the 81 was made as dive bomber. Not just fighter bomber, but dedicated dive bomber, with dive brake, automatic dive recovery, swing to throw the bomb outside the propeler arc during the dive and  bombs. 

 it all started with the IAR80. it had four 7.92mm Belgian made FN Browning machine guns. No bombs. THen came the 80A models with six of the same guns. then the 80B with four 7.92mm FN Brownings and a pair of 13.2mm FN Brownings. Then came the iar-81 armed like the IAR-80A (six machineguns) plus dive bombing equipment. It could carry a single 250kg bomb on center swing and a pair of 50kg bombs on the wings.

  Next up was IAR-80C, armed with four mgs plus a pair of Icaria MG-FF cannons. The last one and the most numerous, was the IAR-81C armed with a pair of belt fed MG-151/20 cannons and a pair of 7.92mm FN brownings, plus the same bombing equipment as the IAR-81.  Most of the 81C's once they got to the units had the dive bombing equipment removed and were used as fighters, otr fighter bombers, since Romania was getting Stukas from Germany by that time.

  In 1944 around a hundred earlier IAR-80s were up armed to the 81C standard, but without bomb equipment. This planes were renamed IAR-80M.

 

I agree with you that the whole series can be made with the unlocks.

I would really like to know how many times these single planes need to be sold to be profitable. I think that would give some context on how realistic some of these collecter request are.

 

Grt M

Btw: I would buy this one as well.

Ding! Ding! Ding!

 

 

  PZL P.24 was being built under licence by the Romanian  IAR factory. That's where the inspiration for the rear fuselage and rudder comes from.
