Lancaster. As a Navigator, my Father did 13-"trips" in them before getting wounded and sent to a nav school as an instructor.

Only one made the choice exceedingly difficult but ultimately I had to go with the "Cadillac of the Skies" - the P-51 Mustang...if only allowed one.

Spitfire, Hurricane,...had to choose just one, different simulation options ,so I simply clicked on the Spit, but I love B-17 and Lancaster too.

We can but hope. I have a list of aircraft I would love to see and the Halifax is one of them. Although I haven't owned WOFF for some time now (WW1 was never really my thing) I see that the latest version offers around 80 types so I'm hoping that eventually there will be an extensive list of flyable machines that suit my taste.

Ditto.

A Ju-87 would also be on my short list.

Near Pittsburgh, PA USA
Well, I had to vote for the Mustang. When I was a kid, others pretended their bikes were cars or motorcycles - mine was done in an USAAF theme with stars & bars - it was a P-51D Mustang!

Not only that, I live near Pittsburgh PA, USA, home of a disproportionate number of Tuskeegee Airmen, the "Red Tails". As a matter of fact, permit me a story - I was at my men's Bible study in Sewickley, having just received a very nice 1:48 die cast Red Tails Mustang and accompanying documentary from my brother-in-law for Christmas. I mentioned it to an 80 year old dear friend, who used to be a teacher as well as mayor of Sewickley, PA, home to several of the "Red Tails" pilots and mechanics. There is a special memorial to them in the Sewickley Cemetery.

Now the documentary detailed some of the predjudice and segregation these men faced - there was a skimpy "Colored" YMCA just for them (The Sewickley YMCA is a premier facility, but back then you had to be a paleface); they couldn't be caddies at the Country Club, etc. So one of these men had a chance one day for some "payback" - he piloted his B-24 at near tree-top level over the country club, dove into the shallow valley where the main downtown is, nearly clipped the Methodist Church steeple (or so it seemed)- Scared the bejabbers out of the whole town! And since he'd flown from Indiana (the state), they didn't have the ability back then to find out who it was!

My friend was there that day! Born in 1936, he was a schoolboy, and said he'll never forget it. People Screaming, running for cover- it was after the war, I should add... And to this day, they have an aircraft from the local Air Force Reserve do a thundering low-level pass in a C-130 over the Sewickley Memorial Day Parade, in honor of the Red Tails and the buzzing of Sewickley.

My friend also knew the man personally; he returned to Sewickley and just died a few years ago. Google-fu isn't wroking for me just now, I'd have to watch the DVD again! Hoffman? Something like that.

What the poll is not:

It is not a definitive list of aircraft that will actually be in WOTR....or what will be in WOTR in 5 years time.

The names are not indicative of what they will be called in the game - yes believe it or not we do know about ME/BF...

It is not meant to bring out the rivet counters in you.

What it is:

Simply to get an 'idea' of how many of you are fighter jocks and how many want to be bomber jocks, whose keen on night ops, day ops etc, so we can tailor the INITIAL release content of WOTR accordingly...or not....

I see your point, but maybe the poll should have been about pilot ops/role/career etc, rather than aircraft types.
Seems everyone thought the poll was for types.

Just a thought smile

Just because we are able to interpret the data in many ways when it comes to making the product does not mean that the poll is wrong....

So by voting for a craft we now have answers to many questions re content in one go...

Its really simple in case any of you are still confused like Sandbagger or have too much free time on your hands:

Vote for your fave craft and we will do the rest.

I voted for the Lancaster. If there was a Typhoon that one would get my vote!

I would love to fly in a Typhoon over Normandy in WOTR, splashing up German Panzers and Tigers and occasional Me-109's and/or Fw-190's. smile

The Bombers have not been well covered in other sims because they do not attract the same volume of customers as the fighters whose missions are inherently more exciting to fly, so there is an empty niche to be filled there. Night operations in particular are a weak area for WW2, but the challenge there is to provide simulation elements that are difficult to recreate like blind instrument flying, celestial and radio navigation aids, radar, appropriate lighting levels, GCI, etc.

I take on Soup's point about the theatre of war to be featured. If it is indeed the latter stages of the war with incursions into Germany's airspace then the Spit and Hurri won't be relevant, but I voted for the poor less glamourous underdog Hurricane anyway.

As Soup has mentioned, the Mossie would be nice.
A Unique Selling Point perhaps would be some of the lesser featured planes that we don't see in other Sims?
