Hi,

I would like to start off saying that '46 is a truly awesome addon in EVERY way. All the new planes and maps are excellent, and the campaigns are superbly written.

I know it's basically impossible to add new aircraft to the game at this point, but, I'm wondering if it would be possible to add a loadout, and/or clone a plane to add in new engines....

Would there be any chance we could get the Blitz cloned and have the clone's engines upgraded to the HeS-011 engines? This would effectively make it an Ar-234D, and should require no 3D model work, and virtually no FM work (just increase the thrust levels).

This would help give it some needed speed in the airspace of '46.

Also, a somewhat less historic request - since we have MK-103 gunpods for the FW-190A8, is there anyway we could get them on the outer hardpoints on the Blitz, with all the bomb choices currently available on the center rack? For either the current or proposed (preferably both) model? Or, if the pods are deemed too heavy to work there (though I imagine they would), maybe a hasty twin MK-103 pod could be made up to mount on the center hardpoint, with the outers carrying the bombs they currently can?

This is a truly awesome plane and a welcome addition. It just desperately needs some forward firing guns. I know it's not historic, but then, not all real Ar-234Bs had the rear firing 20mms, yet ours do. And, there was a central gunpod planned, so it's not a totally insane suggestion. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


Thanks for an awesome sim.
