Question What would be the one non-fighter/non-ground attack WW2 module you would like to see?

Title. I'd like to see a strategic bomber of some sort, like the B-17(awesome multi crew potential). Maybe even a torpedo bomber if we get better ships. Other categories include:

Dauntless SBD for sure would be a day 1 buy. And just because I think it would be neat to see how it actually performs in a wartime(ish) environment the Douglas BTD-1 Destroyer.

B-17 and the Lancaster would get my vote.

Unfortunately I doubt we will have a map that would satisfy its range.

Dauntless was a good pick. I'd like a fully crewed large bomber one day but im not sure how they would fit, multiplayer is OK, but more than two seems a pipe dream. All very well asking for a fortress, but getting the crew would be tough. Any of the two ships with gunners would be good. The incoming mossie was always a favourite though. anything where the AI isn't a poor human substitute

+1 for Cub plus Tiger Moth and AT-6 as non attack/fighter planes though some of them with limited attack capacities.


S!
