At first I wish to thank for expanding my view and understandment of history through Il2 and FB.

Since I was a kid I have palyed many sims, Hellcat ace, Battlehawks 1942, Their finest hour,SWOTL, Chuck Yeagers Air Combat, EAW,...etc.

In all this depictions of aerial warfare I have had the opportunity to be a virtual fighter pilot, level bomber pilot, ground attack aircraft pilot.........

But never a dedicated recon aircraft pilot, (Maybe because the point is not always blowing stuff up), yet since WWI recon aircraft have played a pivotal part deciding the outcome of battles, there are many intresting dedicated recon aircraft like the german He 70 Blitz (SCW and Hungary), HS 126,FI 156 Storch and FW-189, the rumanian Iar 39, the hungarian WM 21-Solyom, the british Lysander, the russin Po-2, R-5, the ZAGI a-7 autogyro, etc.

Many of these planes could also carry a small bombload and delivered active support on the front, offering a ample choice of different missions beside their basic recon duty.

The only problem I see is that it may be quite complicated to develope a good scoring system for recon missions (Trying to snap photos while evrybody is shooting at you ).

Here are some nice recon pilot storys, that also illustrates that at some pints it also could be intresting to switch careers (from bomber to fighter), I dont know how much this happened in RL, but it certainly, would provide the possibility of a colorfull career background in the game
