So did tante Ju start as AI only or was that flyable right off the bat? I would gladly pay for a flyable dak and wait patiently a good long time for her too.

The Waco CG-4 will not be modeled to represent D-day? It is an easy model to model in 3D

It would be a very interesting plane to develop a scripted campaign. I would buy it. Of course it would be an IA plane. It would also serve to decorate certain air bases.

If this were to happen the Horsa would be a must. And possibly the German ZFS 230. But this is just wishful thinking. ūüôÉ

 

It's funny to see the '"We want" inflation' striking again. Same thing happened with Ju-52. BOS was released without it - cue instant 'We must have the Ju-52 in BOS' threads.

Then....

 

AI Ju-52 announced.

We must have a flyable Ju-52.

Flyable Ju-52 announced

It must have paratroopers - we absolutely need paratroopers

Flyable Ju-52 released as collector plane - with paratroopers
As we have a flyable Ju-52 for Germans, it is only fair that allied side gets Li-2/C-47. We must have a Li-2/C-47

 

AI C-47 announced for Normandy

We need a flyable C-47 (with paratroopers - obviously!)

And...by the way...could we have the Waco CG-4 glider too?

And if we are getting the Waco,  we must have the Horsa

If Allies get Waco and Horsa Germans must have the ZFS 230

 

Sometimes I feel sorry for the devs ūüôā

If there is realy so many ppl who wont ju52, there would be no question of geting c-47, fact that they have to do it as AI after po-2 shows that there is no market in airplanes like that. Better they focus on making atleast one of the AI bombers into player airplane and test if there is raly so many players that wont bombers, as ju52 and po-2 show that there is not interest in airplanes like c-47.

I have little interest in the C-47 (although much more interest in it than the Ju-52), but I just did a poll of planes and the C-47, after three rounds, came up as the most wanted new plane from a list of 36 planes I put together.

 

Personally, I love the Po-2. One of the draws of CLoD was that it had a flyable tiger moth, so I'm very glad the Po-2 was added. Still, I waited until it was on sale to buy it . . .

Or might it eventually have to do with the fact, that making it flyable would need more time, plus if it would be flyable released with BON, there would be one aircraft have to be cut out on Allied side? So which one would you sacrifice?

No need to, they are enthusiasts as well as us so understand we want it all to make the sim complete, keep giving them interesting ideas I say.:lol:

 

Unfortunately they have to do the math for each item, here I do feel sorry for them, they have to choose what to leave out.:cray:

 

All will eventually come to those who wait patiently, especially if they make a little noise as well.;)

 

 

As for the Waco and Horsa, maybe they could replace the intended V-1 Flying Bomb with a towed glider, more relevant for Normandy I think.:drinks:

 

Wishing you all the very best, Pete.:biggrin:

Considering that myself am passing up buying BoN until it goes on a steep sale, I would assume its a very popular and highly wanted flyable aircraft. I mean, one need only look at this entire thread to see that almost everyone here is asking for it to be flyable.

 

Now normally, I would have purchased BoN, but considering it pretty much ONLY has fighters... it was a very hard pass for me. As much as I love the P-51, P-38, and P-47, I'm a transport/bomber pilot at heart.

Curious, which planes would you get rid of in order to include more bombers, and which would you include?

Check me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that the reason we don't get as many flyable planes as we want, in fact as many planes as we want, along with all the maps, theaters (pacific), objects and a myriad of fixes is because the Development Team is small, most likely underpaid and most importantly not a huge international concern like say, Ubisoft that can devote a couple of dozen workers to a single game, is the reason things take so long.  Sure, I'd like the world and I'd like it now but what we do have is beautiful and for a computer simulation pretty darn realistic.  It also supports VR, a nearly "cutting edge" technology not found in all games so, all things considered, I'm pretty darn happy.

No, no, no! It was flaming rags tied on sticks.¬†Pitchforks were used for emphasis by¬†pumping them vigorously¬†up and down¬†while chatting ‚Äúhurumph, hurumph, hurumph‚ÄĚ
 

I’d like to add my voice for a flyable C-47 too.

It can be released like Ju-52 as a collectors plane, no necessary to cut any other planes:blush:

May we foam at the mouth where appropriate? I've been working on my mouth-foaming quite a bit lately, be nice to try it out as part of a proper mob.

Which will then be after the release of BON. So it might still be the right thing to first implement it as AI only, so we can use it in the career, and then when there is time, make it flyable.:good:

Every fighter is a F.B. in the BoN plane set. I think he wants medium level bombers, not Mosquitos with solid noses and cannon and mg   . . . . . mmmmmmmmm. I need a cleanup in the pants aisle

The C-47 looks beautiful. I would also like to see this flyable as a collector's aircraft.

The cockpit and engine cowlings were different.

 

It also had a rear side door on the right hand side and I think the main undercarriage legs were slightly different.

 

Would love to see the Li-2 in the game.

hello,

Thanks for the links, excellent, I'm surprised to find so many people interested in JU../..Toucan .

Actually, I am new here and I'm a bit lost in the Forum, too many interesting topics, films, characters etc. at once

'll try to be slower now for  enthusiastic reactions !

The C47 is a beautiful aircraft. If it was a collector aircraft I'd buy her in a heart beat. I recently purchased the JU 52, its a shame that not many servers have objectives for it.

 

Regards

Deano

How can anyone do battle of Normandy without making the C47 flyable. Not happy.¬†ūü§§

 

Fly something else while watching AI C47s drop.  Which would be hard because it's nighttime ... oh well. Maybe admire them when they return in the morning.  Lots would like to see the C-47 flyable and 1C would like to as well.  Still, they have about 8 promised flyables that are in progress.  Maybe we'll get a surprise.  It's happened before.

We had Stalingrad without any Ju-52 at all.. And then only AI for a long time, this seemed unacceptable at the time, but we got there in the end

A flyable C47, AKA  'Dakota', is number one on my Normandy wish list.

My first flight ever in an airplane was a flight from Oklahoma City to Dallas on a Braniff DC-3. 

I was 14 years old, and have never forgotten it.

The plane 'that won the war'.

Have to have it.

I'll pay immediately.

Nobody asked you to like it. 

Nobody is making you download it. 

Nobody is making you use it.

 

Don't go anywhere near my Hack Shack thread.  You'll build a gallows for me.
