Now I know that this game will never be as popular as the others since Jingles called it the "worst game ever" and his minions avoided it like the plague. But here are some ideas for different types of a/c that may be of interest to see how they would fit into the game.

a) B26 Martin Maurder - Medium bomber

b) Northrop P61 Black Widow; This was a night fighter variant.

c) P38 K6A Drop Snoot; This was a variant of the P38 with the gun removed and a bombadier nose installed and the role was to lead in lower level precise bombing runs. The American answer to pathfinders

.d) B25 Mitchell medium bomber: perhaps the variant used in the South west Pacific with the gun mounted in the nose as well a the bomber variant.

Japanese "Ham" japanese fighter.

Got the ideas from watching WW2 pacific documentaries.

Yes I know I cannot spell aircraft properly but "I am old and can do it" as one of my co-workers once said, besides too my WASD keyboard usage make the keyboard miss keyboard strokes, now I play with  joystick

All great ideas and great planes.  But most, if not all, have been suggested many times over the years.  Yet, here we are .........

Japanese Ham Fighters are a baseball team.

 

guess I learned something today.

 

B-25H with the 75mm cannon would be a hoot to have in game.  Sadly, massed .50 cal isn't as good in-game as in IRL for strafing, otherwise the B-25 strafer models would also be a hoot to play.

You likely mean "Hamp", a.k.a. A6M3, which is already in game as a premium with experimental 30mm's.

Just watching a documentary on the War in the Air. They mentioned that the Germans had a prototype jet fighter as early 1939. This was the He 178, but there is no mention of it in the film. It actually flew in Aug of 1939. If WG overlords ever get around to introducing prototype aircraft, this would be an interesting one to see. However, it had no weapons, but what would be a suitable one for it?
