Well, i would not be so positive about this. Yes, more and more 40s plane flying against 80s threats. Great. At least, all the previous ww2 planes were fighters so there were some reasons to fly for some dogfights. But a Stuka? Yes, bombing some unarmed trucks convoys... And then?

Would have loved to see a Henschel Hs-129 for a change for tank-busting:

Most outstanding!!! The more WWII birds that make the hanger the closer we get to more WWII scenarios. Would like to see more from 40-44 era with other iconic classics, like the P-38, Beaufighter, F6F, etc... but this is good too!!

Bombing ships?
Tank busting, hopefully with cannons?
Vital cooperation between pilot and gunner, to evade intercepting fighters?

There are some interesting capabilities in this bird.

Recommended read is Hans-Ulrich Rudel's "Stuka Pilot".
That opened my eyes a bit I must say.

If you want to learn more, there's also this fantastic series of interviews with former Stuka pilot Heinz-Georg Wilhelm Migeod.
He explains a lot about the Stuka's features, and in some places confirms Rudel's descriptions of tactics used:



(If you want the original series of interviews, split into chapters, the playlist is here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...A506FAE3B4225E )


I used to think that the Stuka was a slow, vulnerable and crippled bird.
But not so any longer. It was apparently quite useful, when used right.

His complaint is that there aren't WWII era ground targets to attack. The sorts of tanks we have currently in game can't be dented by the cannons on the Stuka.

I would like to point out however, that given the amount of time it will take to get this bird in the air, by then it's likely we'll start seeing more WWII module support. There's quite a few of them coming rather soon after all.
