What's left for the Luftwaffe?

Recommended Posts

Also the Ju-52 float plane...yeah it's a variant so against the thread rule, but we'll make an exception for this one.

FFS what's wrong with you people - we need float planes!!! 

Arado AR196

Do-24

 

You, Sir, are the thread-winner!

I know EL would probably commit murder for a Pete.

 

The cool thing about the Do-24 is that it could also be used in SEA, too.

IIRC, they (the Dutch) even sank japanese vessels with the 24.

 

Anybody in for a Do-26? :D

The Ta 152 was designed (read: concieved) before the Dora.

 

Yep. Dora was the interim solution until the Ta 152 was ready.

Of course I come at this from the point . of view of what's best for a single player or coop campaign.

 

Within the rules of the OP IMHO the HS123 would be #1.

1. It was actually used in the east.

2. It is a completely different experience to anything on the German side.

3. Form a campaign point of view theHS123 player could transition to the Hs129.

 

2. Arado 234

3. Do 217

4. FW 189

5. Whatever

 

Without the rules above, I really want a Ju87B for Moscow.  Would also like an FW190-A9 just because the Anton is my favorite plane.

 

Now ... what I really want is more Russian 1944 aircraft.  That would take us to the end of the war in the east..  Barring that I would like more western allied early 1944 variants.  I just think that because the German stable is being expanded in both east and west there is less bang for the (single player campaign) buck with German planes.

Especially that IL-2 is the only flight sim that gets propeller dogfights right and now you want to switch to jets?

this this this this.

 

Even if I love the ME262, people asking for jets era makes me... be kinda upset. We have a big repertoire of piston planes to be added in game yet. If they go Korea I will probably not buy that, hell no.

If you could choose five new planes for the luftwaffe, not variants of the existing ones, which one would you pick?

 

So, no more Bf109s, Fw190s, Ju87s, etc.

 

For examples, new models such as s Do17 / Do217, FW189, Fi156 Storch, He112, Hs123, Ta 152 (variant?), He 177, Me 163, Me 323, Me 410, He 219 Uhu, Ar234, Fw200,  etc

 

Tell us us the five new models you would most like to see in our sim :)

 

No more 87s? I wanna d5 soo bad

Since jets are too debated I'll switch my He 162 wish candidate for a Berlin B9.

That simulator was my first :)

I still have all floppy disks including expansions + password wheel thing on my shelf.

 

Their Finest Hour was good too and there was Bf 110.

 

I was kindergarten age back then 😃

Yes that was a very good one. 2nd game I bought back then after the excellent Red Baron. Oh those were the times with 286 computers and fiddling with autoexec.bat and config,sys to get things going.

The FW-200 Condor. 

 

Would be perfect for an Atlantic version of GB, with Swordfish, Sunderland and other naval aircraft.

This would round out the Luftwaffe pretty well and surely keep most people satisfied:

Komet

Natter

Gotha

Lerche

+ B-17

😆

Argggh No! I hope that you are being sarcastic. Natter, Gotha & Lerche were part of the downfall of Il-2 46. Just a bunch of guesswork crap!

Me too. If I remember right, the price for a single add on for SWOTL with one fighter and some missions was $29-$39. That's 1991-92 dollars. That's about $60-$70 in today's currency. It really puts into perspective the argument that IL-2 BoX is overpriced......

 

My list -

1. He-219. Gorgeous airplane. Incredible performance.

2. Me-410. Like the looks of it even if it wasn't a stellar combat airplane.

3. Ju-188. Good looks and performance.

4. The Storch. Iconic German aircraft.

5. Either the Me-163 or He-162. For the fun factor.

How many times I got shot down in this forum for expressing my opinion of funfactor. 

Usually because they are too slow and boring.

If it's not fun, what's the point? I have job. This is a hobby. It should be about fun and enjoyment first and foremost.

Yes I am all for fun but getting a interceptor solely made for killing heavies we do not have is stretching it a bit

True enough. More and more, I just find pleasure tooling around in the planes. Testing. Sightseeing. I think that's a tribute to how well the flight model replicates real life flying. It just feels like I'm in a real world flying a real airplane.

I´d go with the Volksjaeger. They had more flying time (Me 163 only 10 min fuel) and JG 1 used He 162s in 4/45 against RAF in northern Germany operationally flying from Leck and Husum. Yes for the Fun Factor 😉

Natter

Gotha

Lerche

Arado E.555

Nazi UFO
