Default Will there be an update from OctopusG??

Any plans to expand the team (I heard it was either a one person or otherwise small team)? Next projects? Or is this a one-time passion project?

I love the I-16 and there are only two items that I would love to have fixed:

1) A kneeboard.
2) A Radio.

Also if OctopusG could release the German bombers show on their trailer, as AI bombers to use on our own missions, that would be excellent.

Yes ... thanks for the heads up, as it isnt shown on the changelog .. pity that the kneeboard and radio are still missing ... but it certainly looks nice:

Nice to see that its still being worked on because theres not much activity from the developer here it seems.



Btw is there any information about all the ordnance the Type 24 could use?


So now we have 4x7,62mm ShKAS MGs, 2x 100kg bombs and 6 rockets. In IL-2 it also can use 50kg bombs, somewhere on Wiki it says up to 500kg bombs without the rockets (so 2x250kg bombs?). Also what's about the 2 ShVAK 20mm cannons in the wings and there were some interesting extra fuel tanks that look like boxes and it says somewhere on the internet (bad source I know but there aren't many) that every version from 1940 on could use these things.
With all the ordnance it would be a really versatile little airplane, it's already my favourite prop in DCS right now.

Yep, so theyre probably working on a radio, maybe the radio antenna will even be removable at some point? Would be a nice option.
