I'd throw in any possible new GAA line, I need more options to pound ground with :playing:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Agreed, but I would personally suggest make GAAs better as a whole first, before throwing another useless line of "non-combatants".

De Havilland Vampire, Hawker Tempest, Hawker Typhoon, Heinkel He 219, Heinkel He 162,  F6F Hellcat, F-82 Twin Mustang, P-61 Black Widow, Yak-25, Petlyakov Pe-3, P-39 (not premium), P-63 Kingcobra, P-80 Shooting Star, Mitsubishi J2m, Nakajima Ki-43, Kawanishi N1K. 

There are maybe others.

 

On this list you left out the F8F Bearcat, which succeeded the F6F, albeit for a short while. The P-80 has been in the game in the past as a premo, but it is rare.

 

There are a massive slew of aircraft that could wind up in this game, even (and especially) as premiums.

Examples of possible Aircraft:

- Heinkel Lerche (Would likely be a tier VIII, tier VII at the lowest. Should be a premium. i say this because it was designed to be a VTOL turboprop aircraft, very weird design. Look it up if you like.)

- Douglas A-1 Skyraider (Probably also a tier VII premium at the lowest, was introduced in 1949 at the earliest, would also make it the first American GAA in the game.)

- IAR 80/81 (Think Fw 190 but Romanian made and considerably lighter. Either a Tier V or Tier VI. Definitely a premium because who thinks of Romania when they think of aircraft?)

- Ki-44 'Shoki' (A cartoonish lookalike of the Ki-43, fast despite its bulbous looking front. Anywhere from tier IV-VI as a premium.)

- B-24 Liberator (Tier V at the most, should be made part of an american bomber line considering the U.S. practically printed these like they were money.)

- Pe-3Bis (Russian night fighter, would be classified as a heavy fighter in game. Fairly nice armament. would be a tier VI or VII as USSR's first heavy fighter in-game.)

- Bi-1 / Bi-6 (Russian rocket interceptor, development began before the Me 163 Komet's did. Tier VI-VII [for Bi-1] or VII-VIII [for Bi-6] Premium fighter.)

- Ar 234 (German Jet bomber with backward firing guns, tier VIII-IX premium or as part of the German Bomber line.)

- Hawker Tempest (Developed improvement of the Typhoon, would be a tier VIII on a normal line, fastest low altitude speed of any piston engined aircraft in WW2.)

- Westland Welkin (Think mosquito for extreme altitudes to intercept bombers. Tier VI-VII premium heavy fighter.)

- Westland Whirlwind (Fastest and most heavily armed aircraft in 1938, armament means it would land in tier V at lowest as a premium heavy fighter.)

- N1K-J 'Shiden' (Japanese fighter aircraft that could compete with American fighters like the F6F historically. Had automatic combat flaps historically as well. Tier VI-VII premium fighter)

- Nakajima J1N Gekko (Aircraft used as a night fighter. Would probably be a tier V-VI Premium Japanese heavy fighter).

- Ki-102B (Ground attack variant of a Japanese heavy fighter model, would probably be a Tier VI-VII GAA, as either a premium or part of an interesting line of japanese GAA's)

 

And thats just the tip of the iceberg.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

F6F Hellcat. One of the top 3 Allied fighters of the war, shot down more planes than a Mustang. Or Corsair. Top American fighter in the war. 

 

An F6F-5 with 2-20mm cannon and 4-12.7mm Brownings would be a heck of a premium. 

 

Not having this in the game is like not having the 109 or Yak 3 or Spitfire. Makes no sense

Fairey Swordfish

 

Boulton Paul Defiant

 

yes, neither will be 'good' planes for this game ... but perhaps these 'bad' planes can add to the game.

Maybe Swordfish for tier II GAA/Multirole that leads into a GAA line?
