Picking Plane sets for campaign?

Recommended Posts

Once you are in mission you can check your briefing to view metadata for the plane you are flying.  In that is a listing of the "Combat Debut Date" of the aircraft.  It at least tells you what date the plane was flown in combat.  You can also check https://il2sturmovik.com/about/ , it lists the planes assigned to each battle series (moscow, stalingrad, kuban, etc.)

 

Other than that, what I./ZG1_Martijnvdm posted is helpful for in depth info.

 

EDIT: You can also check here for combat debut:

Its a post with the in game Plane briefing data.  Sadly it is not updated with recent releases. :(

Take a look at the top of the post.  Made a rough timeline in excel.  This is relatively accurate for start of production.  I did not attempt to map end of production.  Primarily a tool to make sure I didn't show planes in the hanger that did not exist yet.  I had something similar in ROF and found it handy.

I would suggest that that the dates for the Bf110s needs bringing forward: http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_bf_110E.html gives Spring 1941 for the E series, with the F coming in soon after in the summer of that year. The website also gives Jan 42 as the date for the introduction of the G-2 http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_bf_110G.html.

Cheers.

Bf-110 G-2 reached frontlines in januari 1943.

Thanks guys  I welcome the collective brainpower of this community.  I will correct based on what info people bring forward so that it is at least in the ball park.

Someone will know the exact dates or months, but Yak-1 s. 69 and LaGG-3 s. 29 are both Spring 1942 aircraft. La-5 September 1942, Yak-7B May-April 1942. Yak-1B late 1942, entered frontline units I believe May-ish 1943. P-47D-28 is mid 1944 but its practically identical(or worse thanks to its propeller) compared to earlier bubbletops including D-25 introduced in May 1944(earlier ones just didnt have direction finding antenna or gyro sight).
