Well, it was ugly (unless you like manly planes), rugged, carried a lot of things that went boom and was called the "Thunderbolt".

Good enough for me.

Spitfire IX for me.........

Can't wait till it's released :pilotfly:

+1 P-47D Thunderbolt for being a personal favorite.

The Spitfire IX would be a 2nd choice. Good to know they are both in the works ;)

All of 'em!

Doesn't really matter, in MP, I usually get shot down no matter what I am flying. {;^)

B-17 would be fun, especially if it can be manned simultaneously with another real person or more. This add-another-person technology is doable, it has been accomplished in another WWII era online air-combat sim for several years.

Wow...I am pretty shocked that the F4U isn't on any lists............

The P-38 is also my first choice but didn't think others supported it...glad to see it in the top three.

Considering what we have so far, the Me262A1 no doubt :)

Right off the bat I have to say I'm more interested in the gaming experiece than any other aspects.

I'm not hoping for any specific aircraft. What I'd like to see is ED working with its partners to satisfy a specific time-frame of the war. Aircraft such as the F8F Bearcat will be nice to put on the shelf, but do little to nothing to put a stable together that can be utilized in creating an entire environment.

There is already a late-war time-frame started and probably, with regards to creating an environment, the best move would be for ED to work towards fleshing this late-war environment out. An AI B-17 would be a great add--I don't think having a player-controlled B-17 would be a viable solution, because there will never be enough players to put a flight of B-17s together plus escorts to fly against a desperate German defense. But putting a flight of AI controlled B-17s together to be escorted by player-controlled P-51Ds and P-47Ds would certainly be possible.

Whether ED would want to delve into the Battle of Britain era, where it would be competing directly against other companies, is another question. It would most certainly be something I would be interested in, because I would rather play the era with fidelity than just play the era just to play the era. Plus ED would be starting pretty much from scratch to put the era together, which would be a monumental task. I'll be in retirement by the time they were to get about 50% to of it together... hey, perfect :thumbup:

But to be a viable solution, enough players would need to be interested, and many might think, I already play IL-2, why should I move to DCS to get the same experience--although it wouldn't really be the same I'm sure.

And that's another question. IL-2--from my understanding (I don't play it) is more game oriented--with the community working to make it more realistic--, while DCS is a simulation, which can be used to play a game.

Would the two clash? Would there be a crossover of IL-2 players who are just waiting for something better? Would DCS be too complex/difficult for their gaming enjoyment, or to be enjoyable to them at all?

Those are big questions, but I would hope that ED takes them into consideration.
