Default German bombers?

After much deliberation, I finally sprung and purchased the WWII map. I am pretty excited at this point.
I was wondering if there are any German AI bombers. I keep seeing all of the hype about the B-17 AI and that's great. But what if I want to intercept missions in the P-51?
So are there any German bombers in the assets pack? And if not, are there any in the works?

Thanks guys!

Ah nice. Hopefully they will also add the Heinkel He 111 later on.

The WW II ADC Team has a HE-111 and a few more ai WW II bombers coming soon!
Stonehouse has redone the aircraft lua's to create the most accurate ai bombers he could within the constraints of modding.

The new bomber ai may change may things with how these mods will work.
We will see soon...............

Thanks for the info. I didn't inform myself that much yet because I only "really" flew the Huey so far. But I've bought the Spitfire and the Normandy modules, so I'm looking forward for the WW2 content.

For 1944 other German bombers are more important.

I've never seen a Ju 188 in a flight sim, and a Do 217 would be another good choice.

Agree!
I like unusual or rarely seen aircraft!

Thanks guys. All very good news. I cannot wait!!! The German bombers will add so much to the emersion factor.

I encourage people to get into the WWII stuff if you have not already. Quite honestly, It's all that I really fly seriously these days. I have all but maybe 2 DCS modules but the WWII stuff is what I always end up going back to. Such fun!

What I'm really looking forward to is putting vehicles from the assets pack into the deserts surrounding Las Vegas. The terrain is perfect for the African theater of WWII. I know......some of you cannot get into it unless it's really Africa or whatever, but I'm not tainted by reality. I imagine these things quite readily.

Only 15 more days and the DCS world is going to get a lot better for me. I am imagining that we may be up to the 2.5 release at that point. If not, it cannot be far behind. None the less, I see a lot of changes coming very quickly in the near future.
I know that there will be a lot of bugs and room for improvement, and there will be people bombarding the forums with opinions, complaints, and points of view. All of that is just dandy with me. But (IMO) NTTR was one of the smoothest releases of a major project that I have ever experienced in a sim anywhere. There were issues and problems, but it was never catastrophic to the point that I couldn't deal with it. I have to give ED it's Kudos for that. Problems and obstacles yes. Down times, and persistent issues, a few. But we all knew it was alpha, and the progress was swift much of the time.
I say "Welcome Normandy! We're all happy to be part of this awesome release!"

IIRC I've seen both, in CFS I, some time ago . A DCS model featuring those in good quality, though IA, would be awesome. Well, who am I trying to fool, anything to shoot at will be welcome.


S!

[QUOTE=Hawkeye60;3138784]Agree!

I read that on 31st may 1944 only 96 (operationnal planes) were subordinated to the Luftflotte 3:
I/KG 2 Ju 188 x 12
II/KG 2 Ju 188 x 5
Stab/KG 6 Ju 188 x 1
I/KG 6 Ju 188 x 22
III/KG 6 Ju 188 x 25
I/KG 66 Ju 188 x 31

But I would also like to see them flying over normandy

These two beauties, too, would be an enrichment.
