I'm wondering what kind of planeset we can expect to see in BoB--will it be limited strictly to aircraft German and British aircraft available in the July 1940 -- May 1941 period? Might it also include the Battle of France or perhaps the entire Western European air war?

i believe it starts out with only german and britain, but will expand into other parts of the war with patches and addons much like il2 did.

As far as I know it will also feature italian planes that fought in the battle of britian, so expect some G.50s. What I really hope for is a...

We could also get our hopes up for some french fighters since they were already introduced in their finnish versions in FB.
A few Battle for France missions would be nice to start it all off.
Most likely we can expect all the major AC to be flyable including several bombers. So we should get something like this:

British:

Supermarine Spitfire Mk I and II + sub versions

Hawker Hurricane MkI and IIb + the early wooden prob. version

Gloster Gladiator Mk I and II

Boulton-Paul Defiant

Bristol Beaufighter Mk I and II

Bristol Beafort

Fairy Battle

Bristol Blenheim Mk I and IV

Wickers Wellington (Propably AI)

Hampden, Whitley, Stirling and other british bombers are likely to be AI

German:

Bf 109 E-1, E-3, E-4 (B), E-7 (B + Z) maybe F-2 too and maybe even some C and D models

Bf 110 C-4 and C-4B

He 111 H-2 + maybe some earlier versions

JU 88 A-4 and C-3

JU 87 B-1, B-2, R(long range version operating from Norway) and perhaps D-4

DO 17 F and Z

DO 217 possibly

FW 200C (most likely AI)

JU 52 (AI)

HE 115 (AI)

Several other German planes spring to my mind but I don't think we'll have them

Italian:

Definately G.50 and CR 42 and maybe SM 79, MC 200 and Z.1007, I don't know about other Italian planes that served during BoB.

French: (If we get the French Airforce)

Bloch 151/152/155

Dewoitine D.520

MS.406

Potez 63 0, 1, 3, 7 and .11 versions

LeO 451 (AI)

AI planes may also include some flying boats(Sunderland, Do 18/24, HE 115), recon AC (Lysander, Anson, HS 126) as well as a few less well known fighters (He 100, Blackburn Skua etc.)

Remember: These are just my guesses, they are NOT IN ANYWAY CONFIRMED. But my guess might be as good as anyone else's http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

i heard rumors that the timedeadline would be october1940.

so, no Bf109F , no Droptanks for Bf109E (outch http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif )

and for some Regia Aeronautica BoB info, this site is a nice reading:

the Battle of France 1940 is under the "development" of a 3.Party team - so, cross fingers !
