What are you looking forward to the most in Battle of Normandy?


Recommended Posts

Never heard this big-ass bird was capable of pulling that off. You learn something new everyday:

Most looking forward to 410, followed by Mosquito.

 

Definitely looking forward to flying every single one of them, even things like the Fw190 A-6, as my hopes are up that we will get lots of variants similar to the A-8, making it a good plane to have with unique options and not simply an A-5 with A-8 wings.  Same goes for the Bf109 G-6/Late

The Longest Day tells us what to expect: cliffs, the sleeve, the beaches and bridges of Normandy, the bocages, air fights and attacks on the ground. Dunkirk and the Battle of England as campaigns. In short, I expect a dream

I do not know your point of reference, but in this thread, The Mosquito is hands down the first choice. A distant second is the Typhoon. Then , it is closely followed by the Map and the Me 410. How do I know? I counted them. 

Misread, but a poll would be nice anyway.... . 😁

Well it got a better P 47. By far. And that make me not mind

Let me guess cause... "clicky cockpits" right  ....  The DCS version doesn't even have a complete FM and probably won't for another 6 months (being generous there...) and ED didn't even bother to include rockets in their $40 module... but yeah, its totally "better"...

I really never get the idea that people take exception to those that criticize a game. They are here because they like the game to start off with. The desire for something better is not a distaste. Conversely, someone that loves the game isn't blinded by its faults, though they are childishly called "fanboys." 

 

IL-2 and DCS obviously have high standards, but they are are taking a real tangible object and rendering it virtually. Imperfections is going to be apparent despite the efforts to the contrary.

The P47 will be great in DCS too as soon as there are good campaigns over the channel map for it and once it will be v

completed. Until then I fly the DCS version only occasionally. IL 2 though is, imho, still unbeatable as a true immersive experience. That is the reason I left the WWII warbird experience for Il-2. DCS WWII still feels like a WIP.

Do we know who is making that Normandy map 1C, Yugramedia or  the Tankguys? 

 

I don't know, but sincerely really hope it's going to be done by 1C.

I heard that's quite a short career?!

 

Not much opportunity to collect medals apparently... perhaps we can introduce a Guinness world speed record achievement? Saturday night Doodlebug racing? lol

  • 6 months later...

Daring low-level cross-channel raids in Typhoons and Mosquitos. Dash in at dawn, under 500ft to avoid radar, pop up and blap the port / uboat pen / marshalling yard / enemy airfield, then run away back home before the oppos have got their slippers on.

 

Can we have fog? It would be great if we can have some proper fog...

Thrilled for the Tiffy👍

 

Yeah... I'm looking forward to diving in with the 60lb rockets...

 

Now that I know the 25lb rockets can travel underwater I'm really looking forward to the Coastal Mossie... but I'd have to say that I'm probably a bit more curious about the Me-410 if I'm honest. After that the Ju-88C and P-51B are anticipated (got to love being at a bit of a disadvantage... although I expect the Mustang Mk.III will acquit itself quite well).

I’d keep trying to see if I could destroy planes by dropping the tanks onto them to be honest...

You started this topic to ask what people are looking forward to the most, well that's my answer, I don't see what's wrong with it.

 

Have a nice day.

 

:salute:

Typhoon and Mossie will get me away from the P-47 in a lot of MP sorties. Having attackers with good low-alt performance and good bomb loads will be a nice change of pace. Definitely hankering for those planes.

That, and the map. Can't wait to see what Combat Box does with Normandy.

Yep absolutely.

 

Low level mayhem, that's waht I love and for that the Fw190 and the Tiffy 💥💥💥

I'm kinda curious about the Me 410 and the P51 B.

 

For me, the P51B is one of the big beauties (adore her much more than  the "all time favourite"  D- modell) 

 

And the Me 410.....much speed and much booooom if we get the B2 Version so called "Destroyer"😎

 

Can't wait to get my hands on their sticks

Also being able to fly an (almost) complete fighter career in the Hawker family from the Hurricane II in Sept 1940 through the Tiffy to the Tempest. And similar Spitfire career from V to IX to XIV.

 

Can we pleeeeeease get an earlier engine and 2x20mm 4x.303 armament mods for the IX?? I've been such a good boy this year...

Hm...

 

Hurricane II

Spitfire V

Spitfire IX  (if we got the early weapons loadout)

Typhoon

 

vs

Bf109 F and early Gs

Fw190 A3-A5

 

I see so much potential for scripted campaigns 1941-43😍

No, fly the Hurricane from 1940 straight through to May 1945 as God, the King, and Sidney Camm intended.

Yes, a Spit IXc (early) and Typhoon (early)... and a Boston III (British A-20B) ...along with the Fw-190A4 and Do-217E... one could cover that whole period including the rather dramatic Dieppe raid, as well as the cross-channel sorties, both partly aimed at wearing down German fighter units in preparation for Normandy (and in order to keep them from being redeployed to Russia).

The surprise we are going to get when they announce the torpedoes ... ;)

Jason doesn't now that he will make the announcement this year yet, but I have seen it in my crystal ball. Hahahah
