I want it flyable!!! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Much more relevant to the Eastern front than some other planes being currently in development /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Don't get me wrong though, I do appreciate the work of those who create new planes for us and it will be fun to fly anything what comes up.

Cheers,

Could be the best biplane in the WW2 but worthed nothing in the war's economy. Check this out:

Negative,

The Po-2 pilots flew more than 24,000 sorties and dropped 23,000 tons of bombs. Most of the women bomber pilots who survived the war in 1945 had racked up nearly 1,000 missions each.


Cheers,

Po~2 navigation in bad weather triggered the final massacre of "Little Stalingrad" in the Korsun bag, 1944. I'll make a post on this later. Malmady times 100. The Eastern Front we can't see from the cockpit.

Well , maybe I have exagerated. Everything counted for the war effort , my bad. I just wanted to say the they didn't represented such a force to be taken to seriously. Number of missions flown does not means they were so good , maybe was a good morale booster. Anyway , if I'm wrong , then again , my bad.
