OKW aircraft.

8 months ago

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:

    Really hope they add more aircraft commander abilities or even reskins of aircraft because although the P47 or the Stuka or the Typhoons maybe iconic, but a lot of those planes had like 1 to 2 roles and were replaced by other things later in the war.

    Planes like P51 Mustangs or even Focke-Wulfs or Me 262s. Relic just doesn't want to spend any effort just adding little miscellaneous things which is very sad.

    Hardly a priority to make new models for something you almost never see in an average match.

    To be honest I'm surprised there are models of the some of the planes at all, though if only because those ones can be shot down and crash onto your stuff.

    Pretty much like with the Soviets. Though IL-2 is a pretty good choice (its in-game implementation is rather poor, however - as for the most of the Soviet stuff), was it the only plane to attack ground in the VVS (Voyenno-Vozdushniye Sily, Soviet Air Force)? What about Pe-2 (common-and-garden diving bomber) at least, let alone the Tu-2?
