Well yes, Egypt and areas under British control. Most ( all? ) went to the SAAF. I tend to lump it all into North Africa as that is where most of the later combat was. Early on it would have been against the RA of course.

I agree! I am so tired of hearing "I got you covered" and then seeing my wingman go off after a target on his own.

With that being said, some Air Forces seem to have had better teamwork than others. For example American unit discipline appears to have been very strong while, from my reading, the Japanese were less team players...

Indeed. Teamwork had little place in their cultural ethos of the Samurai, at least as far as fighter pilots went. The Japanese air services clung to an outdated tactical dicta, that of one on one aerial combat. And quite honestly, in the early stages of the war, they had the best trained pilots in the world in the art of dogfighting. The Army and Navy flight schools washed out many, many good pilots to crew positions, that would have been aces in any other air force.

This of course came back to bite them hard as they were unable to quickly replace ever growing losses from 1943 onwards. New Guinea in particular became a meat grinder for Imperial Japanese Army Air Corps pilots, as the Allies better understood how to use their faster, more heavily built aircraft against the Japanese. There is an amazing statistic the book "Fire in The Sky", the Japanese army lost 350 veteran pilots that had over 500 combat hours in New Guinea. This gutted their base of experienced pilots and they never fully recovered.

The battles of the Coral Sea and Midway did for the IJN what NG did for the IJA. The early Japanese successes were only possible because of the excellent pilot qualities, and when these pilots were lost, the IJN had no advantage left.

This Samurai attitude btw. wasn't even limited to the air forces, same was true for about every branch of armed forces the Japanese. The Japanese were supposed to be superior soldiers to make up for low numbers and bad equipment. If your cannon doesn't penetrate the enemies armour while his cannon can pierce yours at 2000m, you'll still win because you're the better soldier. Or not. In some aspects, the Japanese attitude was quite extreme.

But this is going off topic. :oops:

hi all can we have an option in 4.12 to "take out" "see no pilot/ crew" from the inside and outside the planes in IL2 the fighters and bombers look better with out them :-P

Ace1staller 05-30-2012 12:15 AM

Hey TD, good work, however, Could we include Nationalist and Republic Spain Air force because we are missing some very important countries.

As in WWII time period of Il-2 Sturmovik 1946, We need to include more squadrons for France, because there are more than just one.

Also we are missing Countries like South Africa, plus Yugoslavia is needed to be added because German and Italy attack them. Plus Denmark, Greece, Belgium, and Norway should be added because they were involved in World War II. Plus how can we miss China ? China is a Major country and It was under attacked by Japan in World War II.

Also I request that we should need more Polish Aircraft such as PLZ 24 (Also served in Greece) and we also would need Polish Bombers and I would request that we need more French Fighters and we need some French Bombers along during the 1940 period.

Nationalist China is out I'm guessing for current political (read, sales) reasons.

Just have to make do with skins.

Treetop64 05-30-2012 02:50 AM

That, and MatManager has an option to sub out one of the nationalities for nationalists China. Of course, this only applies to the aircraft markings, not the pilot voices.
