So we know now that the Su-26 will be included in the release, what do you all think about this? I think it's amazing and will be loads of fun to rip around in!

It sounds great for a variety of reasons. One is that it should be a very good benchmark for flight model tweaks in the future. Especially since parts of Oleg's dev team designed and developed the Su-26 (such a cool fact http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif).

Two, because the flight characteristics are extremely well measured and known versus the sometimes spotty reports we have of WWII types.

Three, because the folks who spend most of their time in the sim practicing aerobatics deserve to have some sort of aircraft like this to fly around in. I'm even more excited by the fact that Oleg said that perhaps other bonus types could be added in the future too. This is definitely a combat simulation but adding a feature like this has so many benefits to the combat simulator as well as for other alternative purposes.

I can see this type being popular for air racing too.

Yes, it should be possible to measure the adverse effect of stress risers IRL Su-26 turns and prove that aerodynamic theory is all wrong.

Just having a non-WW2 aircraft has the potential to edge into the area dominated by Mickysoft FS.

CoD even has the Tiger Moth.

I hope more "civilian" types are made.
Perhaps a Cessna 170, Piper Cub J-3, Beechcraft Staggerwing... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Non combat aircraft will draw the entire General Aviation (GA) aircraft crowd away from MS.
Third party commercial developers should be very eager to create aircraft/maps for us.

The Beech 17 "Stagger Wing" was used by the USAAF as a liaison aircraft with the designation UC 43. It was also used by the Fleet Air Arm. It would be cool to have one modeled to the fidelity of the rest of the CoD plane set, painted in it's Army olive drab scheme.

A floaty version would be nice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
