There could possibly be an addition of the premium tier 6 German jet He-178

  • Could possibly add 2 20mm autocannon

This aircraft is the world's first practical jet aircraft, even earlier than the Gloster Meteor. It has pretty awesome speed for its tier, and not so bad maneuverability. Also, it's quite unique as it's one of the few german aircrafts powered by a centrifugal turbojet

The Gloster Whittle (fist British jet to fly) would make more sense as there was some thought given to developing it into a fighter....the British had to opt for the twin engine meteor though as one engine could not supply enough thrust

The Gloster E28 could be simultaneously added into game; as a fan of jets I would love to see them in game--they would largely change the game style at tier 6

Man, the jet keep getting lower and lower...

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

I'd like to see the He-176, a rocket plane. In game the only thrust would the boost (= rocket powered). Until the thrust is recovered you need to rely on your remaining speed because you're in glider mode.

Hardly, the Meteor at VII is a fun plane, but in no way did it change gameplay in that tier.

Hmm...don't we already have the J8M as the first-ever rocket plane? Doubt that the working will be too different...

Then the players could better adapt to the 'jet style' at an early tier -- what a good thing
