View Full Version : More airplanes?

11-12-2004, 04:10 PM
I think that Maddox should add more airplanes to il2. Not just any planes, but those german secret weapon aircraft. Ones like the Ta-183 huckbein and the Triebflugel just to name a few. Also, take a look at this webpage -Luft 46 (http://www.luft46.com) Write your responses and any aircraft from that site that you think should be added. Well, we already have the alternate history 1946 missions on Ace...

IMHO, planes that did not saw a real action in WW2, like the 109Z and the P-80 (this one is arguable, but, still...) have nothing to do in this game.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif this game's main rule is realism, and adding such planes would virtually deny that.
The site u mentioned is old, the vast majority of the members of this comunity know about it.
that site is very nice, has some things one wouldn't even think about, but again there were all projects that never materialized. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Von_Zero I agree with you, we have few planes that really don't belong in this game, on the other hand MS406/410/Morko cockpit is missing and planes like Bf109G4, MiG-1, I (Istrebitel) Russian series variants besides I16s and I153s (I15bis and such), Pe2 cockpit, Ju88s, Do17s..and few more.

It is good to have planes like Go229 and Me163, but seems to me that they are added to this game on very 'random' criteria, if we bear in mind fact that more used planes of that time and theatre of operations are missing (or we haven't them flyable).

Although situation in number of (flyable) planes in game is more than satisfying (IMHO), the only thing that really annoys me is the criteria by which these planes are added to game.

I would prefer the developers to stay away from x'46 rubbish drawn on the back of envelopes.
Interesting stuff but far too theoretical for modeling in a simulation.

I would rather see historical planes added with certain themes.
Maybe a 'Spanish Civil War 36-39', 'Polish Invasion 39', 'Fall Gelb 40', or 'Battle Of Britain 40' set.
In combination with appropriate maps such sets would be useful for additional scenarios.

For 'single' additions (like TB3 Zveno) I would want it to be used operationally.
I don't mind the weird side of WW2 aviation but it should at least have been used beyond someone's fantasy.

If they do want to add post '45 planes then I would want to see historical planes.
That would mean early Cold War and Korean War planes.

All IMO of course. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
