Ok, We've got a Mistel.

I've read large numbers of books on WW2 and never read a thing about a Mistel or how it was used for certain.

The first time I ever saw one was in the updates on this site. I don't doubt they existed, but I'm kinda pursuaded this was more of an adjunct jaunt for Oleg in designing for Il2-FB.

Maybe someone that knows a bit about it could enlighten me. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I'd say more of an experiment, and we are the lab rats. It that gets us late WAR missiles in future sims, Be Happy.
