Hi Oleg, hi all!!!!

I have a question and hopefully someone can answer it.

I'd really LOVE to have a BF110G4 or a Ju88G. I heard somewhere that we will not be able to make nightfighters with radar. Now i wondered, why? can anyone explain where the problem is? I'd volunteer in trying to model a Ju88G or my beloved Bf110, with special armament and stuff. I just wondered why the radar thing is not working? A simple version of it is already included in the He111 to tell where the AF is, so where's the problem? Just a third seat in the 110G4 for the radar guy and a screen in there.

please no flames, i just don't see where the problem is.

The 110 and the desert!!!

Hi Gershy,

as far as I know (first hand... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) the current problem is not the feasibility with respect to technical problems but the resources Oleg can afford for an implementation of radar.
There are aircraft being done that we could (and should) use for night fighting (i.e. Bf 110, Ju 88 C, He 219) but currently their use will be limited to conventional flying/fighting.

If we keep pestering Ubi and Oleg to model this in one way or another (speech guidance of the pilot by ground/radio operator has been discussed...) perhaps we can convince them to take the time and finally do a night fighter add-on...!

Hope that answers your question,

Cheers, Azi.
