DBW 1926? Even DBW 1906 would be nice:-) How about the "Flyer" of the Wright brothers to be put in the game? (If someone is to rmove this post of mine, please note this is NOT a request:D

Gents,

Great idea to think about the "1906" (Cracken :) ), but I would choose "1900 - 1915", (The Wright Flyier was from 1903)..

And why to get limited to DBW? Why not have all this nice stuff for the "normal" IL-2 /SAS+Modact and UP ?

Jester, your knowledge about water based planes will for sure be very welcome, as the 1920 and 1930 decades were the ones during wich the flying boats and seaplanes developement achieved its most important level.

Cheers!

If we go back to the beginning, it may be interesting to see about the works of Gustav Whitehead since it is possible he flew before the Wright Brothers.

(The Wright Flyier was from 1903)..

 

Of course, I do realise it, but i did not want to break the string of DBW 1906, 1916, 1926, 1936, 1946, 1956, 1966...

And I agree the planesets should be centred rather around a decade than a single year.

How about DBW 1786, flying with the Montgolfier brothers:-D No, I am not mocking it, I would love to fly a hot air balloon, a blimp or even a Zeppelin in the game. When we have moving infantry and jeeps, I think anything is possible.

Well.. What to say? For sure it would be interesting, but we must be rational, and concentrate on the 20th Century. If you fly the Mongolfier's balloon, agains what you will fight in the 18th Century?
 As we use a sim that is centered on air combat, let stay in the Century in wich air combat started, developed and become a proeminent way of fighting.
You said Zeppelin? OH YEAH! This would be great and I will heartly second the idea... And it makes sense...

:D

I feel like we may be getting slightly ahead of ourselves. We should focus on creating a manageable list of aircraft from this Era to try not to overwhelm the already overwhelmed molders. :P

Napoleon's plan to invade England.  ;D ;D ;D
There was no balloon attack, but we have the tunnel now.  ;D
That would need another thread, this was supossed to be for Golden Age.

Good point!

To Juanmalapuente: ROFL! (Nice pic, BTW)  Did you see the latest movie about the Three Musketeers? The one with Orlando Bloom in the role of the Duke of Buckingam?  Flying Galleons and so on? :D

That picture was part of Napoleon's "let's invade Britain by air" plot.

You've got have the Stearman,

A classic training , acrobatic and barnstorming aircraft for the 30's  ;D :D

Just my two cents.

I saw a Stearman/Boeing PT-13 or 17 as a WIP sometimes ago... Is this project still up or it is dead?
