I don't visit the forums that much, so this is probably old news, but just in case you missed it like me:

Power plant: one Shvetsov M-11, 5-cylinder air-cooled radial engine, output 100 hp (later versions 145hp). Wow! Lovely Crap Plane (TM)

I so hope this works and we get the Po-2 in the game. I know it's sacrilege but I'd rather have it than a Spit and that's saying something!

Interesting, the role of this aircraft is now taken by helicopters. It just goes to show that a major factor was numbers and having good tactics even so the figure of 40,000 is truly staggering.

Another good tactic is the North Sea.

I am glad to see someone is working on some real aircraft. I would love to see this airplane flyable but I must remain true to my cynical self in saying that it most likely will never happen. Even if it gets into the game, it will not make up for the terrible loss of the Gladiatior.

I take my comment about the Gladiator back. I just checked the features list on the German site and it shows that the Gladiator will be flyable. Is this accurate? [I pray, I pray, I pray]

It is. The little Glad will be there. Named as J8A (Swedish designation) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You know what, I'm really starting to like you F19 guys!!!

I too love my "crap planes" (chaika and ishak two of my faves!!), and I am definately looking forward to the J8A, and man o man, I would LOVE the Po-2 if it came with a Night Witches offline campaign, with female pilots!!! But I doubt a campaign like this could really be done, as the Night Witches mostly bombed enemy troop formations, which would require having infantry on the ground getting killed, and stuff.

But anyway, if only there were a WWI sim of the same quality as FB http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Although I do hear good things about this Knights Over Europe game coming out, so here's hoping!!

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

That pit looks pretty damn good. This plane played such a big role in the war in the east it woudl be tragic to leave it out. I hope it makes it into the game this patch or the next.

'crap' is the right word there, i love that early stuff, the Brewster as well. Theres nothing better than getting into a DF and being outnumbered in an I153P, especially when you are surrounded by a bunch of Noob7's adn take them all down, which i have a done a couple of times, lol.
