I'd love to see the Ju 390 in this game. I don't know, but I think it'd be fun to fly beside. Or to shoot down.

It's just an interesting looking plane in my opinion. Even if it was just a prototype.

Ju 390 was a long range derivative of the Ju 290 wich itself was a direct developmnet of the Ju 90 airliner wich itself was based on Ju 89 bomber.
So basiclly you want a Ju 89. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

A little known plane to most people..found something in an old magazine.

2 Ju 390 where completed, one in Dessau and the other in Bermberg.
The second prototype was a maritime version and made a test flight to New York!! (12 miles short to be precise)
The first prototype made long range flights as well...as a courier to Tokyo via the polar route!!

I rather fly one of the HE-177's or maybe a ME 264...

But any of the big bombers would be great to have.

Awesome. I figure if this sim can have planes that never really got off of the drawing board, then why not one that actually made it to flight testing?


Ju 390 all the way!

Oh no!! No more "What-if" kind of planes..If any more planes beeing added let it be those missing to complete the game with planes that saw action. Preferably "forgotten ones".
