I find the 109K4 more than competitive for its opposers right now, I don't see it fit for an upgrade.

Back on topic though, we were speculating what plane will come after the A8. We already know the P-47 and F4U-1D by Leatherneck are on the way. I'm pretty curious to see how both ED's and LN's own versions of the R-2800 will compare, or maybe they'll share data. I think the Mosquito is going to be the next addition to DCS WWII. It looks the most complete, and because both the A8 and Mossie were announced either at the same time or within a close time frame of each other (can't recall). Honestly I'd never even heard of the Mosquito before ED mentioned it, which boggles my mind. I remember maybe 1.5 or 2 years ago, there was a poll on this forum for the first twin engined aircraft, and I was really...really hoping for a P-38, and it was winning for a while...and then the sun rose for Europe I do hope it will be multicrew. Two pairs of eyes are better than one, and flying with a friend guarantees a good time.
I'd enjoy a 109G6 and a Spitfire V, like I mentioned above. I'd definitely go out and fight with those. A Typhoon would be good fun as well.


Correct me, but wasn't the Ju-87 getting phased out on the western front by D-day? If not, I'd like to see those included as well.


I'm thinking eventually, as WWII fleshes out more, servers will have to section off different times of WWII, between early war and late war.

Not long ago Nineline commented both Fw190A-8 and P-47 were more or less in a similar development stage, I gues they focused on A-8 for launch. So luckily P-47 won't be far away too. Hope so.


S!

For frontline use, certainly but many were in use by training units - one group was unfortunate enough to encounter USAAF P-51s from a mixed collection of units (355th and 339th FGs). They massacred of a group Stukas of II./SG103 (Pilotage School based at METZ-FRESCATY).

Combat occurred near Chartres on 06 June 1944 at 21H00. Mixture of -C, -V and -H sub-variants and some accounts even mention an -A!

Ju-87 were also used as nigh bombers against the western allies until the end of the war.
