I voted for the 109. Always loved that machine. But the B17 and the ME 110 was a close second. In the end, whatever OBD puts out , it will be on my computer.

In the beginning, a Hurry or Spit would nice. Later a Typhoon, Mossie, P 40 , a Hudson or a Bristol 2 engine bomber might be super. as for the heavies: B-24 Liberator
whoohoo

My credit card awaits whatever POL and OBD does

I so much wanted to vote for the Lanc, but mostly night ops, so I went for the B17.

Cheers,

Whew!
Lotsa multi-engine types around here.
I often questioned the WOFF Gotha add-on but it looks like I was the one out of touch.

Have no issues with multi-engines (can we say P-38 or B-26 or B-25? Yes!) but will wait for implementation with the current (or suspected) game engine.

I thought they were called 'Bf' until the Old Man (factory owner) died and Willi Messerschmidt (who had married the boss's daughter) took over. Then they changed over to 'Me'.


The official Luftwaffe designation was always Bf (short for Bayerische Flugzeugwerke). But it was commonly known as Me 109 among Allied pilots and even many Germans too.

Remember the German naming sytem changed a bit - that is how the FW190 for Focke-Wulf became the Ta152 named after Kurt Tank.

Also it is possible to fly a Spitfire and the Mosquito in USAAC colours as they used them for PR. The USAAC also had some Beaufighters but those were in the Desert as night fighters.

There is a Spitfire and a Mosquito in the USAAF museum in Dayton, Ohio.

No surprise there. I was sure the Spit would end up winning.

Nothing to look for, because every sim has it and, IMHO, it becomes boring.

Agreed, but there is still hope no?

The B-17 and Lanc beat all planes but one. Very telling.

Well, at least we know that with OBD, by the time they are at WOTR UE, we will probably all be satisfied.

BTW, I remember that one of my first combat flight simulations was one called Dam Busters and that was back on the 1980's in a ZX Spectrum.
As you can assume by the name that sim was about Operation Chastise against those three (3) German dams in the Ruhr while flying the Lancaster (617 squadron obviously).

While a "rudimentary" sim (as it's obviously since it was in a ZX Spectrum) it was nevertheless great - You even had most if not all the stations of the Lancaster (pilot, flight engineer, front gunner/bombardier, rear gunner, spotlight downwards view and navigation/map) where you could target any of the three damn while taking any desired route. I hope that one day I'll have a modern day sim within the same/similar setting. wink

I would give an arm and a leg to fly the Lancaster and (to a lesser extent) the B-17 in a modern simulation tailored to represent the strategic bombing campaign conducted against Germany.

I hope this is the plan, the name and poll choices are suggesting as such.

Of all the fighters in WWII, I think the Spitfire is the most beautiful, and the Battle of Britain one of the most compelling phases of the war.

But after playing Cliffs of Dover for the past 6 years as the only option to upgrade from IL-2 1946, I don't know if I can ever fly in the Battle of Britain again.

If OBD starts out with a more fighter centric approach to WOTR, please don't start with BoB, or broaden the focus so I can go do something else. smile

When you think about our two most recent WWII combat flight sims (Cliffs and BoS), consider how many American planes are in those sims.

America was also in WWII, and we designed and built a few planes for that war.

American customers might like to fly some American planes at some point again in a modern combat flight sim. This is not a dig at OBD, this is a dig at those other companies (I know OBD fully intends to represent America in WOTR).

I'm just lobbying for that to happen sooner than later. smile

I've flown a lot in the online WWII MMP games of the past. And while experienced American players love to fly all nations, "new" American players always showed up flying (and asking for help in) a Mustang, or a P-38, or a P-47, or a B-17.

Its what they know. And I'm guessing that is what they will recognize on a game box too.

The "new" American combat flight sim customer has not been the target of marketing for a long, long time.
