I think something like this map will cover 1944 in the ETO a little better.
I agree the timeframe doesn't suit the current aircraft list. It should really centre around berlin or holland with these planes we are likely to have in the near future.

Would be great taking off in your Me-262 from a heavily camouflaged runway or autobahn to take on incoming bomber streams. Dodging real life players strafing in p-47s while your mates cover you in their fw-190 D9s or Me 109 K4s.

orward operating base — An airfield used to support tactical operations
600 miles from the front lines is not a forward base for tactical operations by Fw190s. II./JG300 was a an Reich Air Defense unit.

The Defence of the Reich (German: Reichsverteidigung) is the name given to the strategic defensive aerial campaign fought by the Luftwaffe over German-occupied Europe and Germany itself during World War II. Its aim was to prevent the destruction of German military and civil industries by the Western Allies.

In the Defense of the Reich for example, airfields in Berlin were supporting tactical operations.
Yes when the Allied front lines were close enough in late 1944 and 1945.

Achery and Aigny Fr. would be a forward bases.

That would be fantastic and would make a great 1945 map!!

Neither of the 2 airfields you mentioned are described as Absprunghafen or Feldflugplatz but as Einsatzhafen and Fliegerhorst.

Einsatzhafen
: operational airfield (minor – limited services; used mainly for
fighters, dive-bombers and ground attack aircraft). Ranked I for 1st Class and II for 2d Class

Fliegerhorst
: air station, aerodrome, airdrome or air base (major – full services)

Absprunghafen
: advanced landing ground

Feldflugplatz
: field airstrip, advanced airfield or satellite airfield (minor – limited
services; used mainly by single-engine aircraft). The Allies called this an
advanced landing ground (ALG)
