A welcome add on for the Forgotten Battles would be the Polish Campaigns and the French Campaigns. Both battles were hard fought and are mostly forgotten or hardly mentioned. Stanta's wish list Thank's

Other than the PZL I don't think the Poles had other fighters? Not sure. I agree, the French campaign would be cool, Both were rather short though, only a few weeks long.

PZL 24, I believe that's the number. That's another Polish fighter.

I'm with you Woofiedog. The Polish and French theatres would make a terrific add-on. For the Polish campaign you would have PZL 11c, PZL 23 Karas light attack bombers and the PZL 37 medium bomber plus a couple of recon/liason types. On the German side you would have your 109s,110s, Stukas etc. plus various Do17s, Hs 123s, Hs126.
The French/Dutch/ Belgium campaign would let you have a myriad of interesting aircraft. Fighters would include the D.520, MB.152,MS.406, Curtiss Hawk,Hurricane,CR 42, Fokker D.XXI,Fokker G-1 and Potez 63. Bombers would include the LEO.451 and Bre.693, Loire 410, Fairey Battle, Blenheim, Amiot 351 and many others.

Although the fighting didn't last for years there is still scope for very interesting missions and campaigns.
Imagine flying a Fairey Battle making a low level attack on the bridge at Sedan. Landing a glider on fort Eben Emael. Defending the skies over Dunkirk. Escorting He 111s as they bomb Paris. How exciting would that be?

I can even think of a name. IL-2:Blitzkrieg '39-'40

The Luftwhiners ought to like it. They win this one!
