I may be in a minority of a minority here but i find some of the most rewarding components of this sim are the flights themselves, combat aside.
Thats why i often fly bombers in il2.
my request is to add non combat aircraft to the game which are flyable, aircraft such as the lysander, storch ju52 etc. With the airtraffic control features that will be needed to give justice to a BoB sim (especially on te British side) this aspect of the sim would be vastly improved.
Liason duties etc. would be an interesting side to the BoB and i think it could attract non-combat simmers interested in a flight sim 1940.
The addition would also add credibility to the sim in the realism department.
Another possibility is flying a german rescue floatplane (this would have a combat element as the planes were seen as valid targets particularly later in the battle)
If a war in europe addon was made c47 drops would be even better again.

As a note to above, it might be interesting to have trainers or tandems of fontline craft and have an optional training period before, your few hours before youre thrown onto the line.

I heard they will have Bf~108s in BoB. Should make a good trainer for the flight sim Newbies.

I think i saw a development shot of a 108, not sure, i saw a lysander alright, but any word on whether theyll be flyable or not?
I think a trainer or at least a non-combat from each side would be a pretty good idea, could be used in that online recon idea in another post on the forum.
Would be a good contrast to the combat aircraft.
But i think its far more important to get the main combatants sorted, if the non-combats cant be done in time an optiona expansion could be made, a sort of 40's training experience with lessons and maybe reproduction manuals that you can look at in the interface.
Might be a bit boring for some who play on a more arcade like realism setting but for those who want to get as close to the whole experience as possible it would be the dogs to be able to do your training first before joing an apropriate squadron.

The Lysander will be flyable soon either in FB or in BoB.

Good, Westland Lysander MkI was used by Finns
as well, so it would be valid for both sides, in
FB also...
