You'd have to let AKAK know too.

A DCS quality P-38 Lightning would probably make me forget every other airplane on my computer.

Well we'll need an appropriate map like PNG/Solomons first. Or at least in development.

Oh. You'd better go tell the veterans of the 20th, 55th, 479th, 367th, 370th and 474th FGs. They seem to be under the misapprehension that they flew P-38s over the D-Day landings.

P-38 did lots of bombers escorts prior to P-51D era. And even after p-38s were escorting still.
BTW those 8h missions had to exhausted for p-51s pilots, mean while in b-17 pilot could probably make short nap while second was flying, im not saying that in b-17 was easy but taking short break never do harm

Yea but I don't need sarcasm about it. If people want to fly it on Normandy great. But there's also nothing wrong with me pointing out that in regards to it being used in the Pacific there is no appropriate map in development or discussed. So far we have Marianas confirmed and iwo jima as shown in development but not yet confirmed.
