Examining the variants of the B-25s it occurred to me. If/when the B-25 and Ju-88 become flyable it would be a great online dual for the 25's to go nose to nose literally (8x.50 and a large cal. cannon) with the 88's.

The pods with the MG's should be the same for Ju.87 and Ju.88. They had 3 MG's each, firing forward and downwards and were intended for strafing troop concentrations on the Eastern Front.

Don't forget the Mosquito.

4x 20mm Hispanos and 4x .303s.

Mmm.

Cheers, Spinner

I'd love to see the Mosquito. Blowing plywood all over the skies would be cool!

At the rate we are going here all we need is a map and we got BoB.

Erbriac is working on this, I believe. Apologies if I've misspelt the user name.

Don't think the project is at the screenies stage yet but fingers crossed it'll make the cut for the next addon.

Yes, a Mossie would be wonderful, and the Beau too. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I saw the cockpit for the 88, it is a piece of art and can't wait for it finally be flyable in the game as well as the 25. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah the Beau looks to be near-complete or complete from the screenies and is in the supposed flyables list for PF (don't think there's an official list yet though).

I HOPE it's included for Forgotten Battles and doesn't end up PF only.

Any news on the possibility of a He 219? Yeah I know its not a bomber, but it has two engines and would be rather nice....

EDIT :- And this is probably further off, what about a Dornier ? Do 217 would be nice (I think thats the model) one of the variants could eeke out 488 mph - thats something I'd like to see! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
