For mission purpose (as flyable) :
Plane with ground attack capacity
Fighter
Medium bomber
Interceptor
Heavy bomber

So (don't take into account the already made or the P47 that is near to be there) :
Hawker Typhoon IB
Focke Wulf FW.190A-5
Lockheed P-38J-15 Lightning
de Havilland Mosquito FB.VI

Douglas A-26B-15 Invader
I would prever A20 or B25/26 bomber (and the straffer version of A20 and B25)

Messerschmitt Me 262A-1 (as it is quite unique plane for the ww2 era, I will take it day one, but because it is unique, it's a plane that is not a priority to me to be included in game).

Boeing B-17 (really not a priority as a flyable but I would buy it day one too).

For me Allied side is complete for now P-51 Spitfie P-47 and Mosquito,
Now we need twin engine aircraft from Axis side,
Then DCS ww2 have to turn attention to Russian warbirds
Famous IL-2, Yak-9 etc etc

Could not agree more! What is Normandy without the Typhoon? Well said. Oh - and thanks for the screenshot!

Would love a Typhoon. Just wondering if there's any useful modelling data available for it, because AFAIK no flying examples exist anymore. Hmmm...

Why the hell everyone wants a Typhoon on the first place and not the Tempest?
All DCS allied pilots complaints they do not have 150 octane fuel and are envious of MW50 on Luftwaffe fighters. Tempest would be a respectable adversary to them.... Are not here any pure fighter pilots but only strafing maniacs?

n.b. THIS IS NOT THE START OF THE FLAME! Take my note with the grain of salt pls

Huh? Well a Tempest then, it's a derivative anyway.

Typhoon Ib makes the most sense. There were only three Tempest V squadrons with ADGB around the timeframe of our map and 25-28 Typhoon Ib squadrons in England around D-Day.

The allied pilots are complaining about lack of 150 octane fuel because we have been flying a 1943 vintage Spitfire against 1945 vintage Luftwaffe fighters for some time. Recently we have got a more reasonable opponent in the Fw-190A-8, however, it is a year newer than the Spitfire. A Spitfire like ours built in March of 1943, would have been upgraded with a minimum of a Gyro Mk II gunsight and a Frank Mk II anti-G flying suit.

By early 1945, the same timeframe as the Fw-190D-9 receiving the Gyro gunsight, the majority of P-51D-25 would be using 150 octane fuel.
