Oleg, the Me 163 was equipped with SG 500 J√¬§gerfaust. Any plans to include this?

Also the Go 229 production requirement stated that it carry a bomb loadout and R4M rockets (Like the Me 262). The Go 229 was to be an interceptor and strike bomber... Any plans to add these loadouts aswell?

No plans for Both.
In additional, the plan to make Go-229 as a bomber was wrong. First of all we tried to place there 1,000 bomb as it is supposed in project and it became unconrolable adn even almots impossible to climb with any possible for combat plane values.
Any additional loadouts that distort the aerodynamics of the flying wing make this plane very bad.

I also recommend to look for the new tracks shipped with AEP.
These for Go-229 and Me-163 show exactly how need to be attacked B-17s and how to escape any looses.

For one pass there possible to destroy up to 3 bombers if you will lucke enough like our pilots in office.

Same taktics must be applied for piston aircraft and hope then nobody will again compline that rear gunners are too good....

With these sample tracks shown the tactic that used Germans in reality and that described in may LW docs.

That is too bad about the Me 163... Would of been fun attacking those B-17s with J√¬§gerfaust! :)

Regarding the Go 229, even the external rockets would cause too much instability? These racks were streamlined from what I remember... :)

I think that there was only ever one Me163 equipped with the Jagerfaust, although it was intended to make it widespread. It went into action just once, on 12th April 1945, and downed a Lancaster and damaged two others so badly that they crashed.
Cheers!

I'd like R4M on the Komet...
