I remember seeing a development shot from Oleg ages ago of the V-1, along with Mistel, so it should be coming. I'm sure it must be done by now. Would like to take Tempest out to hunt some V-1's. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Toward late war they had 'em /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I don't think the germans used them though, unlike the Japaese with their Baka:

Yokosuka Ohka. -- A piloted glide bomb, called "Baka" by the allies.
The Baka piloted glide bomb was carried to within 12 miles of the target by a medium bomber. It would glide towards the target then activate rockets (model 11) or jet engine (model 22) to dive into the target and explode its one ton warhead. The Baka was difficult to stop, but its mother plane was extremely vulnerable.

21Mar45. Japanese make first known operational use of Baka piloted bombs in unsuccessful air attack against TF-58.
12Apr45. Off Okinawa, destroyer Mannert L. Abele (DD-733) is sunk by Baka--she is the first U.S. Navy ship to be sunk by that type of weapon. Destroyer Stanly (DD-478) is damaged by Baka. High speed minesweeper Jeffers (DMS-27) is damaged by Baka and kamikaze.
4 May45. Light minelayer Shea (DM-30) is damaged by a Baka. Minesweeper Gayety (AM-239) is damaged by near-misses of kamikaze and Baka.
10May45 --In a crash program to counter the Japanese Baka (suicide) bomb, the Navy authorized development of Little Joe, a ship-to-air guided missile powered with a standard JATO unit.
11May45. Destroyer Hugh W. Hadley (DD-774) is damaged by Baka.

According to a WW2 Airwars I taped, the Germans didn't use the "Suicide Solution" V1 because they thought it was uncivilized. For the flyer, not the target.

V1 must be relatively simple to add into the game I would think, and I'll bet a nickle that it will be released in the add-on along with a western (Northern France/Southern England) map and Spit.

And I'll further hazard a guess that it will be slated for an October release but delayed into late November.

I consulted my psychic so I know it's gonna happen.

I can never understand this kinda logic. I want to sit in a flying bomb and blow myself up in a sim? WHAT`S THE POINT? It`ll be cool. Right,,, /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif


There are far worthier things that Olegg could spend precious time on, but the basic V-1`s ok.

I saw the Oleg post of the V-1 also several months ago.

I have always understood that the V-1 was only used/based in the West, launching out of France/Belgium area. I could be wrong, of course. But, if right, then obviously one would not spend time developing a weapon system/acft for the Sim unless one foresaw a map/theater in which it could be employed, historically speaking.

Coupled with the development of the P51 (and the already completed P47 with USAAF skins) and apparently the B17 now, one has to include that the coming Add-On WILL include the Western Front...nothing else makes sense. IMHO

Tiz the basic problem and differance in all that you see in a sim vs reality... Evenyone in the sim is a John Wayne, and it shows in the tatics they use.... Which is what makes most of the online games so... GAMIE! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Agree 100%, Sounds like it would be cool if and when the do the addon for the western front... But, it will probally not be an addon and turn into a whole new game like FB did. Which is fine by me! If they need $40.00 instead of $25.00 for a new game vs an addon, Im more than happy to spend the extra money even when 85% of the game is the same as the one I now own.
