But maybe a single member is doing this in a private manner, as it happend a few times already and plans to surprise us all together.

However, if nightfighter scenario gets more into shape, it will probably be a bit one-sided without a proper allied counterpart to Bf110G-4 and such.
Best candidate would be the Mosquito or the Beaufighter, wasn't it?
... in plan on allied side NF is Mossi with radar type MKIV.
Beaufighter no.

I'll pile onto the people asking for the Mosquito. In terms of numbers built, successful use in the role, etc., it was a very important night fighter type, although it's more than a match for the Bf-110G-4 NJ.

If you want a U.S. type based on planes already in the game, you could include the P-70 Havoc, the F4U-2 (or F4U-4N) or the P-38M.

The Soviets could use the Pe-3 or Yak-9 nightfighter variants. The Italians could use the Re.2001 CN.

If you wanted to make the Luftwhiners squeal with delight, you could consider adding the Heinkel He-219 Uhu to the game. If you're just wanting to do conversions of existing planes, the Bf-109 and Ju-88 NJ variants would make solid mates to the Bf-110.

Sadly, the P-61 Black Widow, the one night fighter that every U.S. player wants will never be in the game. Damn you Northrop Grumman!

Well, not in the stock game at least. P61A and P61B are in HSFX6.

well, if we have hte mossie he will have multiple preys. He111 Ju 88 and surely He177. Instead of it, a Luftwaffe NF will have only Wellington and enemy NF. There is a British four engined bomber planned for 4.13 /4.14??

Do-217 is far more important in that role than He-111 and Ju-88.

And if there will be night fighters in the game, Ju-88 is a must have. Primarily a C6, and maybe a G variant. In fact, the C6 alone is more important than the Me-110G4, more than 2500 built.

Agree, even Do 17/217 NF versions would be great. But my point is that those birds will need enemy bombers to kill. At early war, there are Blems and the wimpy coming in 4.12. For medium late / war scenery we need 4 engined bombers. Still we have Mosquito, a great pathfinder.

A Lancaster or a Halifax are more than possible... just a matter of modelling

Guys, all of you still 4.12 fill a box, or already on it a ribbon you tie?

What about RAF Liberators from 205 Group? There were plenty of them in the skies of central/eastern/southern Europe towards the end of the war (September 1944 to May1945)...

EDIT: I was referring to the Mk. VI and later versions. Earlier variants were available in the MTO as early as 1942.
