things they call P-47's or P-51's... BoM +1!

I like the Russian Front. It's what originally drew me into IL2. Learning about planes, battles, and dogfights we just simply don't learn about in school here in the US was facinating.

Plus was there any Lend Lease planes used in Battle for Moscow era? I know that's how a few US planes made it into IL2. P-40, P-39.

TIE Fighter! I love it)
We could make the world's best space simulator, if Lucasfilm had sold a license))) Yes, and you would have great difficulty with the launch of ion engines)

The VVS aircraft as depicted by Oleg in Il-2 were not historacly accurate. The LaGG-3 ,Yak and MiGG were infamous for leaking great quanities of oil, constantly over heating to the point of combustion. Causing very poor performance from the aircraft. The labor was vastly unskilled the materials were of poor quality, in fact the windscreens and canopies " yellowed " so profoundly visibility was a problem. Exhaust fumes routinely filled the cockpit along with the engines runnig so hot, many pilots had to open the canopy in flight to tolerate the environment within their cockpit.No radio communications, and poorly refined aviation fuel,futher degrading performance. . Since the negative -G induced engine cut is modeled in BOB , I assume the above mentioned would be modelled to some extent in BOM. this will demonstrate histoical fidelity.

Seeing how Il-2 never adaquately addressed the PTO, ETO nor Med., I would have preferred any of these three to the Eastern Front.

thread clean up again. Some of this stuff is verging on spam in this thread, which is here for a specific purpose.If you want to talk about FM's, start a new thread.

Battle of Moscow?

Did that include the build up where Hurricanes were brought over by No.81 Squadron to Vaenga as part of the lend-lease?

Eric Carter, last surviving member of 81 Squadron talks about his time in the RAF and off to Russia as part of "Force Benedict"

I must say that personally for me North Africa/Med would seem a logical step forward and as said it has not been done before to any depth

The aircraft would also lend themselves to 'Leaning in to France 41-42' on the BoB map (excluding long range bombing and Allied heavies which would presumably be another Sequel).

+1, however the fact that it's the next logical step is most likely the reason why it isn't the next step.
