I'm curious what you guys think will be the next 3 planes ?
Not the ones you are hoping for but what ones you think are coming.

My guess would be

Alb c3
Voisin 3
Dolphin

Pol has already stated that the Dolphin will not be one of them.

Albatros C.III
Halberstadt CL.II

I think those are some of the most important missing planes is most played years. If they want to focus on "completing" the late war fighter selection then Pfalz D.XII is probably the most likely after Dolphin; If they want to add missing plane classes then Hanley Page O/100 and/or O/400; If fleshing out the early war is the priority then I think Voisin III or Morane-Saulnier N; Lets say Caudron R.11 as a dark horse option smile.

That's surprising, it's such a major type to be missing. Maybe they are prioritizing less covered years and/or roles then.

Voisins, especially the 37 mm gun versions
Farman F40 would be good for early war.
Albatros C3 and / or LVG IV too : I love german two-seaters !
Also Salmson 2A2 and Caudron R11

The Caudron G6 / R4 or R11 would be interesting as they would introduce a new way of playing, especially as escort : you have to position between the plane you escort and the ennemy.
It is quite fun in First Eagle.
The Salmson 2A2 was flown by the french and the US, it can be funny.

I've been hoping for the Salmson to expand the American two-seater campaign. I'm with jeanba from the Alb C3 and LVG.

Just to clarify I recently only confirmed that the Dolphin was not in the game already as Wodin thought. I did not say we won't be making it at some point smile

Right now I'm in a fall of 2016 Campaign and the only two German 2 seaters are the Aviatik and Roland c2 so I think a 2 seat Alb is likely.
Other than that there are so many options.
I kinda like manfas post on page 87 of the wish list.
And Pol's reply even better - Lol.
Now I better run.

Oooo. Teaser.

There is a definite need for more German two seaters in 1915/16. As mentioned, flying for the RFC or FAS you only have Aviatiks and Eindeckers to shoot at before some Roland's turn up later in 1916. Albatros two seaters flew throughout the war so they should be included as much from a historical accuracy perspective as much as a game one......again this is true with the Voisin. It was a numerous and important aircraft in the early and mid war years....so my 3 would be

Albatros C
Voisin
Dolphin

That way the master coders would be pleasing everyone, filling up the sky nicely earlier on, and giving people what they clearly want later in the war biggrin


So, we take off in ten minutes, we're in the air for twenty minutes, which means we should be dead by twenty five to ten.

More B/R buses are sorely needed, in particular the French. The early Voisins are a must and should have been here long ago. Same with the Salmson 2. Along with those another German 2-seater, like the Albatros C, would be an excellent edition. While I would dearly love to see the Dolphin in WOFF someday there are other, larger gaps in the line-up that really should be filled first. If we're wishing, how about a couple of sea planes in the mix? It's high time we had the Felixstowe F.2. biggrin

I agree with you Lou. The Dolphin seems to be the favorite amongst people on here, so it might be a 'crowd pleaser' with which the devs can get more sales whenever the new aircraft come out.

Personally I'd like the Morane Bullet in there although it'd be interesting to see how and if deflection plates could be incorporated into the game. I doubt they could physically, it would probably be easier to have a low rate of fire (like the Eindecker EI) to replicate the effect of the plates.

Seaplanes would be great and as I'd like to see a Belgian career option at some point in the future, perhaps the Hanriot could be included.....but I'm dreaming again dizzy

More two seaters is a must, and definitely achievable.


So, we take off in ten minutes, we're in the air for twenty minutes, which means we should be dead by twenty five to ten.

Personally I'm not that interested in the Dolphin but the OP's question was what planes we think come next, not what we would want smile. It just seems unlikely that next three planes would all be two-seaters/bombers.

Speaking of Morane Bullet, the deflector shouldn't have that much effect on the rate of fire. By eyeballing I'd say less than 1 in 10 bullets would hit the deflectors on average. Normal synchronizer would probably have larger impact on firepower since they have large safety margins. I don't think the propeller collider is propeller shaped in the first place so physical modelling would be impossible and mechanical overkill. A normal WOFF Vickers firing at normal rate of fire with occasional sound of bullet hitting the deflector would probably be pretty good approximation for the weapon.

(in my dream world, the MF.11, the Farman F40, and the Voisin III and Voisin IV)

I would love for them to be all early war French two seaters... but, adding the Pfalz D.XII later in the war seems like a pretty good thing to add.

by the end of the war the Salmson 2a2 was being used all over the place by both the French and the Americans. so, in terms of just the pure number of squadrons that could be fleshed out these seem like two really solid late-war choices.

the nice thing about adding in the Voisin III is that it could be a stand-in model for the Voisin VIII. and those machines were used for a very long time! I think the Farman F40 was used in larger numbers, but it was for about a year or so...

I love the early war German two-seaters.... but if they do an early war airplane it's hard to imagine it NOT being a French two-seater! this is where the biggest gaps clearly exist. but, if they did do one the Albatros C.III would have the biggest impact based on numbers and deployments.

Swore I wouldn’t get involved in the 25th WOFF plane wish list thread but here I am. Ain’t you all glad I have a phone I carry around all the time?

But back to business. Now...IMHO and flying in 1917 and 1918:
WOFF is in a pretty good place with single seat fighters with no serious gaps except the lack of a FE2d. Yes I know. Not to say perfect (the Dolphin being needed) and there are about three or four that would really round out the 1916-early 1917 British roster. Martinsyde, Fe8, etc.
Germans are in good shape though a SS DIV would be sprinkles on the cake.
French seem to be in good shape also with all the Nieuports and Spads. Official files for all the different engine sizes for different time periods for all the British and French planes (.xfm only needed) worked into the campaign Engine would be awesome.

While not sexy I think two-seaters are desperately needed for all sides.
The Alb-series for the Germans to start, FK8 (The Big Ack) and FE2d for the British, and a one for the later war Americans aka the Salmson. Thanks Trooper!
Not being up on the French two-seaters I’ll leave that to others.
