To me the D.520 was one of the most beautiful fighters of WWII, any reason why it's not modelled in IL2?

Because no one modelled it.

If you google SAS IL2 Mods you'll find a site where this plane is a work in process.

Battle of France theater is not covered in IL2. Nor is Battle of Britain for that matter. Nor the USAAF bombing campaign.

I expect that SOW will cover the BoF in -great- detail as well. Not sure about USAAF due to actions of corporations and lawyers.

Unless someone does one up quickly I doubt we'll see a proper D.520 until after Storm of War. It had a place in the Mediterranean battles so maybe there is some hope to see it there.

The Bulgarians flew captured D.520's that the Germans had given them. They fought against the 15th USAAF over their homeland. They also flew with the Vichy French in the mid East and North Africa. It would be nice to fly it in IL2. Those theaters are encompassed by the sim.

Sorry, M_G, but it makes perfect sense to me.


Back on topic, I like the look of the D 520 too, but I think we're unlikely to see one in an official patch - SoW:BoB territory.

I know the meaning of that word. I can't see how it applies. The term "touched upon", yes. Encompassed, no.
