Well, for most of the planes this is not a problem... in fact it is in much more details than most other sims. However, a couple of aircraft are still generic (eg. the storch and Gigant), let's make them complete.

I don't believe there was more than one variant of the Gigant...

There was one with 4 engines, and one filled with turrets and armor to be used as an formation escort.

4 engined one needed help to get airborn but could cruise when in the air

Well actually, there is. The Me 323D to Me 323F are all six-engined aircraft. And we havent talked about the sub-variants yet. Anyway, how bout the others... its strange that despite going into so much depth in most of the planes, some got left out.

Me-323 production variants (not including prototypes):

Me-323D-1

Me-323D-6

Me-323E-1

Me-323E-2

Me-323E-2/WT (gunship)

Me-323F

Me-323G

D versions were most produced, than E versions, only one E-2/WT was made, but was used operationally on the Eastern Front. Only one F and a small series of G were made. Production ended in May 1944 with last three Gigant's made in that month.

I would like to see an aircraft selection interface more like M$FS2002/4, where you select the manufacturer (or we could have 'country of manufacture' instead), then the generic aircraft type, then the variants. So if you want to fly the Spitfire MkIXe CW, then you go to 'Britain', 'Spitfire', 'MkIXe CW'

Another thing I would like is to have the various gun loadouts on the FW190 specific to each aircraft, not to a weapons loadout.

That would take some major reworking which we don't have time for though. Maybe in BoB?
