I think BoB is a good choice simply because it is the single most significant aerial (only) battle ever fought.

They should add Walter Cronkites reports from London ! I wonder if it would be expensive to use them ? Can you imagine completing a mission. landing , entering a barracks & listening to real life radio from the time !?

Music would be nice to & real newspaper headlines.

The amount of historical data available is quite good i am sure. & some of our Uk friends would probably help with research ??

One thing I just thought of...BoB is a high altitude air battle, so it must have a totally new aircraft flight modelling unlike our treetop Eastern Front FM in FB.

Just a thought, and any BoB addons with P51~Ds and Doras would fit in naturally given an original high altitude "physics" FM modeling for Oleg's BoB. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Oh, and we hope the grafix for BoB will be made from the start with high altitude in mind. No more high altitude Pancake. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The BoB was fought at all heights from 500 to 25,000 ft. Remember that in addition to the air armadas sent over by the Germans there were also, smaller scale, low- level attacks designed to sneak under the radar. Many attacks against RAF bases in Kent and Essex were carried out this way.
Incidentally- the most important German bomber during the BoB was... the Dornier Do17z- used in greater numbers than the He111 or Ju88 but sadly neglected in most WW2 sims.

It will be a start-from-scratch job apparently, nothing will be used from FB and the planes will be 'hundreds of percent better in every way' - can't wait!

How's this to get your taste buds going:

On 10 July 60 Stukas, together with 75 Dornier 17s, assembled over the French coast, where they were joined by an escort of 200 Bf109's. As the formation approached the (shipping) convoy, 30 Spitfires came hurtling in......


--------------------


The first time I'd seen a really large German formation. The controller on the RT said, 'One hundred-plus bandits' and then told us the direction. Moments later he said, 'Two hundred-plus bandits' and then finally he said, 'Very many bandits!'. I happened to be flying L1082, which was our oldest Spitfire and slowest. I had some difficulty keeping up, however I did more or less. I remember the incredible sight of this great swarm of rotating German aircraft, each following their own tail, going round and round emmitting condensation trails. The feeling I had, and a lot of us had, was, What are these buggers doing here? How dare they? It was really quite a shock to see this vast number of black crosses and swastikas in the sky over our country. Then we all plunged in.
John Bisdee, 21st July, 609 Squadron.

Well, to handle raids of 100 bombers plus 100-150 fighters at that "much much better quality" we will need the most powerfull computer ever...

I hope the "future of computing" will come by 2005./i/smilies/16x16_man-happy.gif

Will we man bombers and fighters?

hi,

..I guess a 64 bit BoB programmed combatsim + the hardware on prize level of today is possible in 2005.
WinXP+64 is in the pipeline to spring 2004 ...
