The Defiant is a very interesting airplane in my opinion. It was a flawed concept, that actually did have some success early on, and then later it was used as one of the RAF's first night fighters.

The Defiant did take part in the Battle of Britain, where it generally was able to maul Stuka or other bomber formations, but if escorts arrived it was often hard-pressed to be successful.

I'd assume it's going to appear in the Battle of Britain game.

Once upon a time, I saw WIP shots of a Defiant. Last thing I heard was that the
modeller put if on hold because he couldn't find enough cockpit sources.
He didn't want it AI-only. Sounds pretty reasonable to me...

yeah someone was making it for IL2. However enough info on what the interior of the turret looks like was available. So he went on and modeled somethign else instead, cant recall what but do think it came in AEP. Gotta admit flying a defiant isnt too fun if you cant go back and man the gun lol

Someone should Go to the imperial war museum in Londdon and take some photos for him then...as there is one there (AFAIK).
