It will probably be flying before we get to fly it in-game :trollface:

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

Technically there are some players that can fly that plane in game already.  So the info is there, why they have not released it to the public yet is unknown to all.

They are waiting for an appropriate event to add it to as the "carrot".     :sceptic:

It's been in game for almost 2 years now. I had an opportunity to fly it back when Gunlion was still CM, that is all I will say about it.

I wonder how much different it will fly in the game compared to the Bf 109Z.

I wonder if the crew would be two pilots or one pilot and one gunner. Probably play like a heavy fighter like the 109Z except have machine guns instead of cannons.

To the best of my knowledge, one crew man, the pilot.

What a fantastic warbird to be restoring, I won't hold my breath to see it in game but it's great to see the dedication people have to these machines in real life.

 

A pity WG don't share the same enthusiasm

While reading the comments in the article, saw someone mention an He229 German jet bomber, that would be a good addition to the game. Underpants, not sure if the F 82 would have two positions or not, but in view of the game, it would likely have only one pilot as you have mentioned previously.
