This is a suggestion certain famous planes have been left out like the F6F Hellcat, and others in specifically there are practically no American attack planes, like the A20 Havoc it could carry 4000 of bombs and had like 8 50 calibers in its nose, the A26 and the B25 had 12 50 calibers in the nose. Anyway there are other countries like Japan and France that had good fighters that are not in the game. Like the Nakijma Ki-84 Radien-Frank. which could be a tier 6-7 plane. Please take a look at the list below and other people please add in your suggestion.

 

Thanks

There are enough Grumman planes for a full Grumman line...which seems to be why WG is awfully quiet about it.

 

The Japanese Army line is already up, with Ki-61 as tier 6 and Ki-84 as tier 7.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

The Canadian Avro Arrow would be a great addition for t9 or 10 plane. The F6F may be too op if they did it historically.

As much as I want to agree, I can't. The Avro Arrow doesn't fit into the time period of WOWP (being too new for the game) and supersonic aircraft were to be avoided.

can you show me proof?

I never remember that being in the game during the beta, and i was specifically looking for it because its my favorite mass produced prop plane

I do know that it is currently "being tested"

Wow that list would  be nice because the American  line don't have a ga line and there is plenty  of planes that WG could put in to fill That void in that nation.... and I have to agree with one of the guys in here F6f would be OP  but again if they did it historically  you can argue that the P51D MUSTANG would run circles  over any 109 in the game  as it should be

Discussions about expanding the Grumman line have been going on since CBT, just happens to be my favorite personal crusade.  Add the F6F at T7 (alongside the P-51D), the the F8F Bearcat at T8, the F9F Panther at T9, and the F9F8 swept-wing Cougar at T10.

Hopefully in the new Conquest mode, which includes bombers, we may see the Havoc, Marauder, Mitchell, and Skyraiders.

 

Skyraiders at T9 or 10 would be awesome for me, as my father flew Skyraiders in the USMC. Total GA nerdgasm.

IMO, the Skyraider was the one and only US attack aircraft in Korea. I love that plane and would like to see it in the higher tiers.

Believe it or not, the F2H Banshees did a lot of GA/CAS missions in Korea.

The Banshee was the USN plane of choice in the book "The Bridges at Toko Ri", but for some reason, they decided to use F9F Panthers in the movie.  (If you look closely, you can see Banshees and Bearcats on the flight deck in certain scenes in the movie).

My Dad used to tell me about the long drinking sessions with Navy pilots, arguing about which was the better plane, the Banshee or the Skyraider.

The Skyraider had more payload, the but the Banshee had way better performance.  Comparing apples and oranges, I know, but Naval and Marine Aviators will always find SOMETHING to argue about.

I'd truly like less fantasy and outright bullsh*t planes that had only 2 manufactured and/or never saw combat. 

 

There's plenty of real and true warplanes, so why in the hell do we need to have these complete garbage planes: the floppy pancake, Bf 109 Z, J7W1, J7W2, J7W3, etc.   

 

Just pathetic  Nice fumble again, WG.

How do you know they are all crap? Out of the 5 you listed, you only have one of them.

Then no one can fly any German or Japanese planes above Tier 8.

Historically, half the planes in this game saw very little service.

Just enjoy the game.  As far as the XF5U Flapjack (silly Russians mis-translated it as "Pancake") is concerned, this is not, by ANY definition, a crap plane.  Bring your favorite Tier 8, and we'll throw down....once I hose you down with the syrup dispensers, you might change your tune.

 

There are other games out there if all you crave is historical accuracy.  Why not just try to have fun with it?  Who know, once you get a couple thousand more battles, you might change your mind.....

Within the game, I'm quite certain the XF5U is NOT a crap plane...but in real life the thing was nothing more than a test-bed aircraft (and a quite faulty one at that).

 

I'd just prefer that the fantasy planes not occupy an unavoidable step on the tech-ladder.  As it stands right now, many of these fantasy planes force real warplanes to take a backseat.

Actually, they were medium bombers, but are most effective at high altitude (i.e. no low-altitude attack variants). The bomb sight mechanics are worthless at low altitudes.
