While I know the Bf-110 is in Il-2: CloD, I do yearn for the opportunity to fly underneath Lancasters and Wimpys and shooting them down with the Schrage Musik, rather than fly them as bomber escorts in a role they failed miserably at. Is there a sim out there that models night fighter ops (or will the modders deliver)?

I don't know cod, but I flew many night missions with fighters in Il-2 1946. They don't model night missions anymore with cod?

It would be anachronistic in COD, they didn't start with the Schrge Musik installations till 1943. Still it would be awesome to do that, especially multiplayer. If I recall correctly, someone was working on it for IL-2 at one point. May be worthwhile to post a question over in that forum.

SWOTL SWOTN mod is pretty fine - however, it is looking a bit dated (although the nice thing about night sims is that you can't really see). Rise of Flight also has some neat night combat these days...

With the right mods for Il-2 you can get a Ju-88C6, Bf-110G, Me-410 NF, Me-262 NF, Go-229 NF (not the real variant though), Ar-234 NF, Mosquito NF and Beaufighter NF... try SAS.

That's the only think I could think of for SWOTL, too.

Secret Weapons of the Nachtjgers (a total conversion for Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe - one of the finest, only rivaled by the Russian Front and surpassed by Lucky Strikes).

On a historical note - the simulator which eventually became Janes's Attack Squadron was originally planned to have nightfighters (along with other features like atmospheric modelling), but it was cancelled. When JAS was released it had the one remaining feature (searchlights) disabled without modding. Many sims lacked night flying at all.

IMHO, Russian and American developers have a history of overlooking night combat (and how varied and interesting it can be). A recent exception is Rise of Flight (which has expanded the night element), eventually Il-2 (eg. searchlights) and several jet sims (eg. for the F-117)...
