To be honest, the plane I would want the most for DCS is Tempest Mk.V

Agreed
and how can the Typhoon be missing. It was in Normandy from the start and instrumental in making the breakout possible.

On the list would be the Mosquito.
What I really want is a SpitIIa, Hurricane,Bf109e4,Bf110c,He111,ju87,Do17z,Ju88a.
These 8 aircraft would allow us to do a whole part of the war BOB/ with just the 4 fighters flyable.

They're already headed to the Pacific theater (which wasn't very pacific). Someone's working on the F4U Ensign Eliminator and the Essex flattops. Seems like we need something for that F4U to fly against, and maybe a bird or two for it to fly with.


We can do a pretty good job of faking the European war with what we have and what's been announced. Once we get what's been announced on the other side of the war we're still missing a few pieces, even if we let the Japanese forces borrow a few Essex carriers to not fly the aircraft they don't have...


So, my wish list? A6M5. The Japanese can always borrow German land aircraft in the short term.

Just now? The venerable Ilyushin IL-2 Sturmovik single-seater. And I'm not joking either, so more's the pity that we'll probably never see one (or its accompanying theatre) in DCS.

I think our best hope is a mod group turns out some AI birds.
Maybe even re-task some cockpits Ie : !09 k4 for 109 e4 etc.
There are/were quite a few WW2 planes done but they don't work in the latest versions.

This is still listed in the download section.

I want a PBY Catalina... the black cat version with machine guns in the nose, so I can dive on Japanese transport ships at night in the Marianas!

Leatherneck is also working in a A6M5, AI for the moment but there is enough information available to make it full fidelity module. Also Nick Grey is a warbird passionate, so I am sure that we will have more warbirds for the Pacific.

10. Bf-109K-4
11. Spitfire Mk IX
12. Me 262A-1

My reasons are many and involve how many times I have flown them in other sims, usefulness for the scenario/balance, gut feeling and sex appeal...

EDIT - And we need an me but I never liked the K so that's why it's so low as I follow the thread rules
Not to mention...Normandy needs the Typhoon given how many squadrons of them operated there and how it turned the battle at crucial times. Give us the Tiffy!
