This a-20 together with an me-110 and maybe even an westland lysander so the piper cub can be replaced.
I approve this message.

Really cool. With these beautiful new planes I really should look into finding a proper joystick and learning how to fly. :)

But if the double MG is in the new stuka, what is the single model for? (Since the Stuka is now the only German plane which has a MG position like that. And a possible future ME110 also has a zwilling mount, right?)

Only the double mount has been made. :P

Any chance to get the MG81 as ground weapon ? Would be great as a pick up kit in the Luftwaffe base areas.

Nice update :)

How will the Stuka Bomb layout change to the older version?
from 500 KG average for B models to 1000 KG for D models, but in theory it could carry as much as 1800 KG but only for very very short ranges

Most common used where 3 x250kg, 2x250 and 1 500kg or 1 x 1000(mostly for anti-ship operations)

It was dependant on the mission and the range required for it. But 3 x 250 would have been the most common

Can we also see diffrent bomb loads for the beaufighter? and when do we see a proper ground attack plane for brits! A20?

A-20 can be used for every Allied army on every theatre atm!

Yes the A20 would be a nice addition.
They might add an autolevel option and a bombsight too.  ;D

Yes, the Douglas A20 Havoc looks interesting. Multi-roles, and right at the bottom of the WP article ...

"Aircraft of comparable role, configuration and era

    Bristol Beaufighter"

The A-20 can be used for Americans in NA and normandy, brits as the boston for all current theathres and for the russians on the eastfront (russia recieved Tonnes of these planes)

well the A-20 often used 8x250KG bombs but rockets where also used yes

And yes we seriously need the Me110 aswel

Like a super aircraft update, A20 for allies, Me110 for jerries, Sparviero for Italians..

I say i am off to find modellers, coders and artists in china for this!

How could they possibly refuse  ;D

Was looking at some history. It's obviously possible to get completely carried away with these MG81's.

Quote
The Ju 88A-13 was a ground attack version of the aircraft. It could carry droppable bomb pods containing small anti-personnel bomblets (AB Abwirfbehalter 250, 500 or 1000) or Waffenbehalter weapon holders, each capable of carrying up to three 7.9mm MG 81Z twin machine guns. The A-13 could carry four of these pods, allowing it to carry the equivalent of 24 7.9mm machine guns. The type also carried extra armour in the lower cockpit and around the fuel tanks and engine nacelles to protect it from ground attack. A small number of A-13s do appear to have entered service.

What always excites me about such updates is the variations of vehicles already in.
A new Stuka, a new mg.

That's what you get in Fh2 you wont get anywhere else  ;D


And what a beaut. Turkey as the Stuka generally is.
This must be the most graceful
