I think it would be nice for us as well as for ED to know what WWII aircraft is currently most wanted/needed by the community.

(The original thread here https://forums.eagle.ru/forum/englis...at-would-it-be is great but a little bit disorganized now)

Mosquito F.B. Mk.VI, ME 262 and F4U Corsair are considered as in-progress projects so no need to vote for them.

Vote for only one aircraft.

I would have said Typhoon given it's ties to Operation Overlord however honestly the only valid answer here is the G6/G14... After that the Typhoon, Tempest & Spitfire XIV.

 

Before we move on to another theater we need to set have a decent baseline for Normandy/Western Front, the G6/G14 will be a huge step in the right direction, if not I am worried it will set a precedent for all future theaters.

Oh, I forgot to mention Typhoon :(, sorry for that guys. Unfortunately, now I am not allowed to add new poll items...

But pls feel free to add your comments here.

So far it shows the need of k-4 being replaced by g-6.

Not sure why have to choose from Pacific, BoB era, Normandy era aircraft, i' suggest braking it down into 3 separate ones.

Personally Id add any twin engine german aircraft that would suit 1944 Normandy map.

Me-110 or me-410 would be great to have but its just realm of wishful thinking.

Well, you are right that the poll is a mess od aircrafts from different periods. But it is not my reasoning. If you know about some info leaks from ED, they are planning to build Pacific as well as Battle of Britain battlefields/scenarios. That is why the poll has to mention all the aircrafts ED plan to release in a more or less distant future. Because average time for the creation of 1 a/c is a very long period (at least 1 year of work), the goal is to see what we as a community prefer...

Given that the FW 190F-8/G-8 and the P-38L are already in progress by ED and Flying Iron Simulations and the Bf 109G-6 and A6M5 are in progress as AI by ED and M3 with intentions stated to make them flyable someday maybe (and I don't care if they stay AI only) that really only leaves one aircraft suitable for our current two WWII maps. I would love to have a Spitfire Mk XIVe but a Typhoon Ib ( not car door) would be a better fit and a significant aircraft that is different from what we currently have and appropriate for the maps we have.

 

There are a lot of other aircraft that would be easier to make I think and really needed, a Mustang III/P-51B/C, an appropriate version of the P-47 as well, FW 190A-4.

 

For something really easy, a modification to the existing Spitfire Mk IXc to give it a Gyro Mk II gunsight option and exchange the .303 Browning's for .50 Browning making it a IXe which would be appropriate or for something completely different, an option for a Seafire F Mk III mod to the Mk IXc to make it usable in the Pacific as well as Normandy.

Hi Rob. Would you post pls links with info that a) P-38 is going to be adapted for DCS b) Bf 109G-6 is in progress as AI by ED? c) A6M5 is in progress...

AFAIK nothing of these is sure for now. But pls correct me if I am wrong. It would be great if at least some of these projects have already started.

I'd like to see all the aircraft on the list.

 

AFAIK, Flying Iron has said nothing about bringing the P-38 to DCS.

 

There's been mumbles about the 109G-6 but nothing definitive.

 

Haven't seen anything about a flyable Zero either.

 

I'm looking forward to the La-7 by OctopusG - if it comes to DCS.

 

Others: would like to see flyable assets for a Flying Tigers scenario. P-40A/B, Japanese AC from that era (not A6M# ?).

 

Obvs we need Wildcats and Hellcats and more Japanese assets for the Marianas.

 

For a quick, "achievable" win, would like to see an air-to-air focused radial FW190 (F-8?).

I think that the next planes should extend the current planeset. An scenario like the current I-16 (with no contemporary adversary) is undesirable. So 109g6/14, typhoon-tempest, spitfire XIV... would be the logical step.

Obviously, I wouldn´t mind if they decide to develop something like a Bob scenario with a pack of planes launched in a close time frame from each other.
