Wow cool.

I guess this was the mythical P-51D flight that got swallowed up in the Bermuda Triangle and next thing they know they are in the Black Sea fighting modern Eastern Block jets.

Dont worry the Wright Flyer will be out after the Hughes H-4

Still at least we finally got something to deal with those Pesky Su-25s!

+1. The FW190d9 would be a great opponent for the p-51 to face smile The simplicity of WW2 aircraft compared to the A-10 and other modern fighters shouldn't make it too difficult wink

Perhaps, this would be another outlet for DCS to make some cash? With the questionable release of Cliffs of Dover, I would invest my money into purchasing another DCS product if there was a WWII flavor to it.

there's my own flightsims rule I described once as "one era" rule -you can make decent WW1 or Korea from WW2 title, plausible Korea or Gen.3 fighters from early jets, but you can't jump from 2000 to 1940's using the same engine without major rewrite of basically everything. That's the idea put in short words.
Just my 2 cents

And yet.... they've pulled it off with the merging of A-10 and Black Shark 2.... I imagine additional aircraft will follow the same development model.

Oh, I'd like to take this opportunity lobby for a P-47, Fw-190.... and the full BoB "stable" of aircraft + Channel Map, if its not too much trouble biggrin

Best wishes.

I second the motion for a 190, or even an A6M...

IMHO, the A-4 Skyhawk or A-7 Corsair II would have been a better choice. I know there was some talk about a COIN P-51 "Enforcer" a few years back I believe, but a P-51 vs. a ZSU-23? Really? LMAO I demand the P-40 or F-4U Corsair then! ;-)

You gotta see the big picture.

With the debarcle that was Cliffs of Dover I think others are looking at dipping their toes in the WW2 sim market.

This could be the start of something very, very good.

I'd also note that this news from DSC seems to have spurred the Cliffs of Dover crowd into action and they are promising to post pics this friday of the new game they are building.

Competition is good.

When there's a a box of B17's (and I don't mean just 6) a proper map, opponents, WWII environment to fly it in, I'll get excited.
Until then...
