Any chance we'll see them in fighter and ground attack versions in the game anytime soon?

There's already the "multirole" version, that ought to be reclassified as GA and get the ordnance to go with it.

Good one.


DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

One special plane that can no longer be obtained is hardly representation for one of the most important aircraft used by the RAF in WW2. Plus that's the 40mm GA version. We should have the 8 gun version and the quad 20 version too, or give the 8 gun version quad 20s as an upgrade. Also, on the topic of planes mysteriously missing from the game, where the heck is the F6F Hellcat?

Or the 12 .303 version for something a bit more unusual.

God, I love you new guys. We "salty" vets have been asking for a Hawker line ad nauseum for the past 3 years.  You all have a lot of learning to do about how things work here. GL to you.

The Hurricane shot down more German aircraft in the Battle of Britain than all other Allied air defense systems combined.  I do not know what the stats are for the entire war but as the Spitfire was in service far longer in the air defense role it might have caught up a bit.

The final proof is the Hurricane outscored the Spitfire in Battle of Britain kills. It was 55 %to the Hurricane versus 45% to the Spitfire.

 

No of planes at start of Battle of Britain: 2,309 Huricanes

No of planes at start of Battle of Britain: 1,400 Spitfires

 

Spitfire squadrons had a better claims-to-loss ratio, however, claiming 7.4 German aircraft for every pilot they lost themselves while the Hurricane squadrons claimed 5.7.

 

Many of the great aces in 1940 flew Hurricanes rather than Spitfires.The top-scoring ace in the Battle of Britain was Czech Josef František, of 303 Squadron, who flew Hurricanes. In September 1940 alone he shot down at least 17 enemy planes.

If they made the Hellcat, they might have to give it a 20mm upgrade and I don't think they want it on such a both boomy and maneuverable plane. Essentially the aircraft would have NO weaknesses.

I personally would like a super maneuverable version with cannons and decent altitude performance.
