Any news on AI A-20C, AI A-20K and the 1 or 2 AI British "Western European" Beaufighters variants as made and supplied to 1C before the 3rd party model submission deadline ?

Just wandering what is happening with those fine models...Since they were submitted by modellers having other variants of the same aircrafts in the game now, I assume they would be up to 1C standard for at least AI. What is the scoop with them then?

Thanks,

Jagd

Any of the listed above planes WERE NOT made and supplied to 1C BEFORE the deadline. What was supplied was NOT complete.
Please, do NOT invent "facts".

Thank god for someone in the know to answer finally.

I am not inventing "facts" as I was told by Caspar (I think) or perhaps rafael that A-20C & A-20K was done completed AI by him/them and submitted before the deadline. Since some other models we done successfully by him/them, no reason to doubt ?

Anyhow, I guess that was not so. Thanks again SaQ for confirming that it is not going to happen.

P1ngu666 is right. The other variants of A-20 and Beaufighter were made from non-corrected models. While those models, that got into the game were heavily modified.
The external A-20C model is, actually, being worked on, but so far it is not in acceptable state. It will be fixed, though.
As for other listed - I don't know, if they are planned to be fixed and inserted.

Thanks much for the quick and informed response as usual SaQSoN.

This along the lines of what I wanted to hear about those aircraft, or at least for the A-20C.

There were several mods. Most known are:
adding enclosed turret with UBT instead of opened Browning mount on top of the A-20C;
adding navigator's comparetment to the A-20G instead of the quad MG mount;
adding hardpoints under the wings for the Soviet torpedo, which was larger and havier, then the USN Mk13.
converting A-20G into night fighter, equipped with Soviet built radar station "Gneis" and a pair of ShVAKs. Were used at Koenigsberg to intercept cargo planes and gliders, supplying the German garrison. Weren't quite successfull.
