I was just reading around and I saw that this plane flew with the USSR...Just thought it would be a good addition considering its not the most popular plane and this game is called Forgotten Battles.

Take a look to the sky just before you die. Its the last time you will!

Blackened roar massive roar fills the crumbling sky, shattered goal fills his soul with a ruthless cry...

I love strike bombers like the A-20 Havoc. Fast, heavily armed, and tough. They're not as agile as a true fighter bomber, but they can stick up for themselves.

I downloaded an A-20 and a B-26 for CFS2 - they're now a couple of my favorite planes in the game for ground attack.

Those would be amazing in IL-2 FB. The A-20 is excellent for low-level strike missions, and the B-26 is a fairly close counterpart to the HE-111.

penguin, nice photo.

Yes to the A-20, Pe2/3 as well as other twin engine Soviet attack bombers. These are "must haves" for the ground attack war. With the Axis getting a Ju-88, the Russian forces certainly need their counterpart.

Mtn.

The B-26 a counter part of the He-111?! Don't make me laugh.

Have you forgotten that the He-111 design was on the early 30s? IIRC they have something like 5-6 years difference.

Yes, the A-20 is great. Like the B-25 or Pe-2/Tu2 it would make a good addition to the Allies. Any of them.

Allies need a good flyable bomber !!

I worked with WPedra0 at the P-47, and we planed to make the A-20. The Brazilian Air Force Museum opened their Havok to us, as they did with the P-47, but someone reserved the A-20 project and nothing were build up to now.
