As much as I would like to see early Battle of Britain/ early Pacific aircraft I think some more 43/44 aircraft first AI or flyable P-38,B-24, Halifax/Lanc, Me110/410/262 first.
Just so we don't wind up with a couple aircraft in each time period.

This seems like the place to put my request for a Hawker Typhoon. All this talk about planned aircraft for DCS Normandy...how can this one not be right up there? Maybe too hard as there is no flying model. But Aeroplane Heaven had a good go at it. A rocket firing Tiffie - NOW we're talkin'!

I am surprised not to see more people talking about the P-38 Lighting. Bring back the good ole days of Janes WW2 fighters. Loved doing missions in the 38 over the Ardennes Forest.

The role of the P-38 was quite limited in Europe if I recall correctly.

There are far more important planes required to build up than the lightning at the moment, hopefully we will get it one day.

The P 38 got Photo Recce jobs. Exactly where it belonged.

+1 billion

There were 26(?) Tiffie squadrons supporting operation overlord

I really hope we get the bubble canopy, four prop and 11lb boosted version.

At the time of the D-Day landings the P-38J was in service with the following units:

8th AAF

20th Fighter Group (converted to P-51 July '44)

55th Fighter Squadron
77th Fighter Squadron
79th Fighter Squadron


55th Fighter Group (converted to P-51 July '44)

38th Fighter Squadron
338th Fighter Squadron
343rd Fighter Squadron


364th Fighter Group (converted to P-51 Aug '44)

383rd Fighter Squadron
384th Fighter Squadron
385th Fighter Squadron


479th fighter Group (converted to P-51 Sept '44)

434th Fighter Squadron
435th Fighter Squadron
436th Fighter Squadron


9th AAF

367th Fighter Group (converted to P-47 early '45)

392nd Fighter Squadron
393rd Fighter Squadron
394th Fighter Squadron


370th Fighter Group (converted to P-51 Feb '45)

401st Fighter Squadron
402nd Fighter Squadron
485th Fighter Squadron


474th Fighter Group

428th Fighter Squadron
429th Fighter Squadron
430th Fighter Squadron


Allowing each of a total of 21x squadrons to put 16x airframes operational on any given day, that's a total of 336 P-38s available for D-Day.

That's loosely equivalent to 2x Luftwaffe Geschwader of the period.

Why anyone thinks that's an insignificant amount or somehow unimportant to the Normandy air campaign... well.
