View Full Version : Large production German plane, NOT in FB!

As I was looking for more info on the Ta 152 H-1, I stumbled across this:

The Gotha Go 145. In total, "more than 9,500" were built in Germmany (quotes from "Concise guide to Axis aircraft of World War II)

Used as pilot trainers, they were also used operationally on the eastern front as nuisance raiders at night (waking you up with little bombs!) and as night fighters, until the end of the war, starting in 1943.

Holy ubiquitous crap plane, Batman! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif Plus, it's a two seater biplane!

I'd like to se these things on airfields on FB.

Just like we need the U-2 as well.

Great projects IMO for new modelers.

My thoughts exactly!

I was told of 2 possible reasons for the lack of a few important planes. First, the modellers are not interested in doing it. Second, when a plane is assigned to a modeller no one else can model it, therefor a plane assigned to a lazy or busy modeller won't make it in time. Once again, I don't know much about this stuff but that's what I was told. Can anyone confirm this?

As far as I know this is correct.

When Il2center.com went down there was quite a big lull in modelling progress because noone could work out if people were still at work on a project or not. One of the modelling folks can probably give you more details on how it works though.

It is a shame that we don't have a lot of the 'workhorse' planes flyable, but I think they tend not to happen for a variety of reasons, chiefly player interest in flying the type. A person could plausibly make the case that slow, low powered, lightly armed biplane spotters contributed more to the war effort on the EF than any of the high powered fighters - certainly more than the contribution of experimental designs.

The reason you don't see them in the game is probably the same reason why you don't see Janes E-3C or Battlefield Vietnam:Forward Air Controller on the shelves. Very important to a war but probably not all that interesting for most players to go and fly around, waiting for something to happen for hours at a time.

Not that I wouldn't like to play with them if someone spent the time doing it :&gt;

Yes,that's pretty much correct,though if someone takes a plane and no progress is shown for a long time,other modellers are usually able to do that plane despite the fact that it's technically "taken"....

I think an Ar-96 would be a good project too.

I for one would be quite happy to fly older, `crappier` WWII aircraft. I also hate this flying the `fastest and best ` aircraft mentality, especially since, it seems to me, there were always more `crappier` planes around than `best`- even up to 1945. If I was any good, I`d try modelling some... but I`m not!

But then, that`s why I fly VEF/VOW (and good coops).

It would be nice to fly the less effective planes. Of course more plane would mean a better variety of missions. I do tire of constant dogfighting but then again my pc can't handle the FB missions as it is http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif It's the cross I have to bear, at least till I upgrade. I don't complain though, this is still the #1 WW2 flightsim I've ever seen. I wish I knew how to model, I'd help out.

Me too. I'd love to be able to model,but my skill is severely lacking. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
