BON Got some old memories flowing

Recommended Posts

Back when I was much younger (9 or 10), I remember watching historical videos, crashshows and "messing around" videos made in IL-2 1946 when I wasn't able to buy (or run) these games, in awe of the physics models.

With the announcement of BON and the new planeset, I think watching back over a few of these videos have already got me stoked:

 

V1 Bombs

 

Rhubarb Missions (it has a sequel too)

 

<basically all of 1 F Jef's videos on IL-2>

 

Do you guys have anything boiling back to the surface?

My memories go back a bit further - through European Air War to Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe...

 

If I recall correctly you could shoot down V1 during their takeoff in SWOTL... on could also see the impacts made by V2 (and catch V2s at launch before they accelerated).

That's the first thing that came to my mind. Attacking the V1 launch sites and the coastal radar masts.

Yep, I remember that too. Would be great if we not only get doodlebug hunting missions with BoN but also "Operation Crossbow" like missions to destroy V1 and V2 launch sites.
