View Full Version : Aircraft Wish List (aka, aircraft we would like added to IL-2)

After talking to many of the gamers that frequent this forum and hyperlobby, I decided it would be a good idea to propose a wish list of aircraft we'd like to see added to IL-2 1946 (4.09m or 4.10m, maybe?).

In the spirit of keeping the list length manageable, let's see if we can come up with 5 or so aircraft that would be relatively easy to implement. Some of course, are already in-game, but are not flyable.

1) TBF Avenger
2) B-17 Flying Fortress (or B-24 or B-29, any will do)
3) B5N2 "Kate"
4) Spitfire Mk XIV
5) Spitfire Mk Ia

Some other possible choices...

6) A-36 Apache (P-51A)
7) Hawker Typhoon
8) Gloster Meteor (first Allied jet figher)

It would be great to provide other suggestions, but if one of the planes on the list jumnps at you, try to drum up some support for it...

Avenger and Kate have never flew in WW2, they don't exist. Take care of it...they DON'T EXIST!

I hope they don't add ANY planes to 1946. I have the game and it has everything I need for now.

Any further time spent expanding this game would be a complete waste of Oleg and crew's time.

I'm looking foward to BOB.

What? Torpedo carrier bombers are an off limit argument here. Forget about them (Kate first of all), and try to enjoy with Lerche and Space Invaders...if you can.

We need to "switch on" BoB...it's definitely time to do it, first of all after the 1946 UFO addon release.

This was the kind of response that I was looking for. I'll go with the A-36 then.


*To those that seem to insist on logging into threads simply to call them a waste of time...stop wasting your time and let the rest of us without an abundance of wealth play IL-2 for a bit longer. The game is far from out of style. The number of servers is abundant, and BoB, like all modern games, is going to require such an expensive video card to do it justice that we might as well wait another two years...

Not that it matters but if we were to have anything "added" I should think that Rockets for the Mossie, a flyable solid nosed B-25 (an aircraft that already is flyable but has another version that doesn't require any new views) being realistic I seriously doubt any Dev wants to spend more time adding things to this game but some loadouts to already existing A/C would be nice if it were possible to do without too much extra time to add it, we already know there are some more maps coming and I'm really wanting to see BoB personally but, you know what they say you can wish on one hand and poop on the other betcha know which'll fill up faster..

Yeah, there's always going to be dozens upon dozens of glaring omissions brought up in these threads. I could easily name over 100 aircraft that aren't in the sim that played a valuable role in the war, but I'm not going to. The time has come to move on to the next chapter, BoB. At some point we will likely (not guaranteed) be able to add 3rd party aircraft with BoB to fill in the "holes", but not with IL-2. The development cycle is OVER. Anything from here on will be leftover scaps that the programmers will finish when they have time, IF they have time. Let's focus our efforts on the future and just be happy with all that we already have to fly in the mean time.

If somebody would just hit a big lottery, hire talent and make a deal with Oleg then maybe
there could be more addons. Want Avenger, Defiant, etc? That would take cutting deals with
Grumman and whoever else as well. But first there needs to be the money, the grease to make
business slide along.

Okay I'll beat a dead horse here but Northrop-Grumman has no real say in a video game using a depicted aircraft from 60 years ago in game, if it did there would be NO Grumman Aircraft in any game at all. Anyone who thinks that they do please by all means get someone from Grumman to say so then we can all E-mail them into the ground http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

The problem wasn't the aircraft...if you look at the back of the Pacific Fighters box you'll see that trademarked names such as Grumman were used to describe the aircraft. That was the problem.

guess how much "plane wishlist" topics we hade here in the ORR the last 5 years. they are countless !

My personal preference runs to early SE Asia/Pacific stuff, so for the Allied side:
Lockheed Hudson (AI)
Dornier Do 24 (AI)
Brewster B-339C and D (flyable)
Curtiss Hawk 75A-7 (flyable)
Glenn Martin 139/166 (AI)

and for the Japanese:
Kawasaki Ki.48 (AI)
Mitsubishi Ki.51 (AI)
Mitsubishi G3M (AI)

These would pretty much complete the list of the most important types used by both sides in the early stages of the Far East war.

Unfortunately the prototype was bombed before it could have flown http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif But its an easy thing to do, simple Bf 109 G cockpit was it.
