There is an issue that keeps bugging me:
The way the Stuka aircraft was recycled for the OKW army.
Historically, Stukas were utilized primarily in the east, where they stood more of a chance of surviving once the Germans lost the skies in 1944. On the western front a stuka wouldn't really stand a snowflake's chance in hell, given it;s inherent weakness against fighter aircraft.
I propose (and pray to the old gods and the new) that Relic be ever so kind as to replace the plane model used for OKW(i will add another topic in the wishlist about a new OKW Luftwaffe commander as the current one, while being good, doesn;t have the airstrike me and other like minded individuals wished for).
The ideal match would be the Focke-Wulf 190 plane. Wikipedia source: The F-series models of the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 were specifically adapted for the fighter-bomber role. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:FW_190_F.jpg
We could also utilize the Me 262, which would fit in greatly with the OKW fashion of having the best late war weapons in the German arsenal(too big, too late would be the motto here). Aditional information:
