I just got done watching a program on the History channel that said towards the end of WWII german fighters would be hidden in the woods around the Autobahn. The German's would close down sections of the Autobahn for fighters to take off and land. I thought this was pretty interesting. Would anyone like to see these Autobahn bases represented in IL2? I don't know how hard these would be to program but it would be pretty awesome and challenging to land on the autobahn. http://www.flightjournal.com/images/articles/wilde_sau/smithereens_large.jpg
That's a pic of one of the autobahn basese.

S!

I just finished watching that as well, pretty awesome program and a great idea.

"Son, never ask a man if he is a fighter pilot. If he is, he'll let you know. If he isn't, don't embarrass him."
Badges!? We don't needs no stinkin' badges!

How can we have Autobahn bases if we don't even have the Autobahn? On our maps there are only single-lane country roads, even in the surroundings of Berlin.

But you can build bases yourself in the Full Mission Builder. Only the AI Me-262 won't take off or land outside of regular bases.

We have no Autobahn http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

But this is a good suggestion for the next sim generation, which will begin with the BoB. The BoB will be a base for further battles and theatres, most probably W-Europe after BoB till 1945, the Med and finally the EF and pacific again http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

Nice idea.

How many Autobahns in Germany, circa 1939-45? Went from where to where?

Well you can always just land on a road. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Check out the Berlin map, down on the southern edge southeast of Eisenhuettenstadt. There is an orphaned chunk of paved road all by itself in the middle of the green grass.

I've seen some examples of creative FMB work where folks have converted stretches of road into nice looking runways.
