Is there any chance we'll see some nose tanks for the 262? I think it was the A-2 version that was capable of carrying fuel tanks under the nose where the bombs are? I only know of this because I built a 262 model awhile back. It think it would be key for the Luft 46 addon too since its short range was a serious problem in anything but defensive warfare.

Me-262 has pretty decent range, the catch is altitude: at low alt it is terrible gas guzzler, at hig altitude it can fly whole day

I think I read where the fuel tanks were more common on the two seat Me-262 because the 2nd seat eliminated one of the fuel tanks.
