DOH!!!

I wish there were more bombers in the sim. They're awesome to fly. I'd love to get my hands on:

- JU88
- B17
- B25 (esp the G variant I think, with the 6 .50 calibres)
- Lancaster

That would definitely be awesome! Some European maps would be awesome as well ie. Western Europe.

B-25 is being worked on...not sure if it'll be flyable...
Ju-88 cockpit is being worked on...supposedly it's almost done...
I'm not sure if anyone is modelling the Lancaster...


(btw,we'll be getting at least a Western France/Belgium
map in one of the add-ons)

That would be so cool. I reckon that if Maddox games released an addon for FB that basically concentrated on the air war in Western Europe - that would be awesome! Imagine it....
- Spitfires
- Tempests (drooling...)
- Typhoons
- Mosquitos
- P-51s
- Lancasters
- Hampdens
- JU88's
- B17's (imagine flying in those formations!!)

Western European maps would be awesome, esp in 1944 onwards which would need to encompass a lot of ground attack missions (P47, Typhoon, Tempest). That'll certainly turn CFS3 on its head (even more so than it has already).
