Trainers, liaisons, transports, recons... Those are the most needed types ATM... It seems particularly ridiculous that many countries (especially PTO) in the game don't even have a single dedicated recon or liaison planes even when they were made in droves... It is the same for transport, except for the LW, it does seems every nation field C-47 and it's derivatives exclusively for transport...

This isn't unrealistic. It's hard to understate just how common and versatile the DC-3 and it's variants were. For example, statistically, it was the most common British transport aircraft during WW2, while the Li-2 was statistically the most common USSR type.

It's not unrealistic for the late war. But hostilities in Europe started in 1939. Are you sure that the situation was the same in the first 3 years?

Italian Regia Aeronautica had the SM82 Marsupiale from 1938, a transport so good that remained in service long after the war. But, if I’m not mistaken, Luftwaffe was the only air force with an appreciable number of cargo planes operational at the beginning of WWII.
RAF Transport Command was established on 25th March 1943. So, it’s true that there are allied transport types other than the C47/Dakota/Li2, but not many really significant ones.
I would be glad to have the Bristol Albermarle and the Vikers Valentia, but I can live without. A simplified B24, minus Norden and turrets, in theory could be converted into a C87 Liberator Express… That would be a great transport plane!

For the USSR, the Li-2 was the main transport type and the Soviets had a license to build it since before WW2.

Likewise, Japan had a license to build DC-3s before the war, and it was also the main purpose-built transport (although later the G3M was converted to being a transport).

Pre-WW2, the UK had a number of different civil transports built by British manufacturers, as well as a number of converted or unsuccessful bomber types used by the RAF. In the latter group, the Armstrong-Whitworth Albemarle was probably the most common and successful. If I had to choose one British-made transport plane as being representative, that would be it - especially since a few were used by the Soviets.

For the Italians, hands-down it would have to be the SM.82 as the choice for an Italian-built transport plane. This was an excellent plane which was also used by the Luftwaffe in significant numbers from 1943 on. It could also stand in for the Ju-252.
