Also, did I tell you that Flying Heritage Collection (2 hours south of me) is currently rebuilding a flying fucking Stuka? Should be ready by fall. ()}|^



You better be filming the Stuka when it flies.

The Wasserfall surface-to-air missile program would've been a better idea for stopping the Eighth Air Force's bombing campaigns of German industry than the 262. At minimum it was a better idea than the V2.

Various anti-aircraft batteries such as the flak towers proved better deterrents to bombing specific areas than jet fighters. Jet fighters which didn't have many advantages in a dogfight compared to piston planes and their airfields were very vulnerable to attack from the air by both fighter and bomber alike. (And given the aggressive campaign to establish air supremacy over Europe in 1944, the jets weren't all that useful compared to keeping the factories running.)

Had the Germans employed both, the bombing campaign over Europe would've probably fallen apart until new planes and tactics were developed to counter them.

They wouldn’t have needed to involve themselves in dogfights... just slip in, blast a few holes in a few bombers and get the fuck outta there... Mustangs and Thunderbolts were useless against them, being at least 100 mph slower.

But yeah, Murrica would have had an answer to them within a year or so anyway.

They would've for one big reason. The USAAF and RAF were aggressively vying for aerial supremacy over all of Europe, meaning the airfields the jets would've been on were the targets. Thunderbolts, Mustangs, late-war Spitfires, whatever there was would be going after the jet bases aggressively to destroy the threat.

Likely backed up by bombers as well.

Of course, the only thing the Wasserfall/Schwalbe combo likely would've done had it stopped the Eighth Air Force's bombing campaign is bring the P-80 Shooting Star and Gloster Meteor to combat duty, both were operational in 1945 with first flights and squadrons assembled by 1944.

Spitfire was better. Even Galland admitted so.

You can buy the droppable bomb separately... https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Dinky-Junkers-J ... %7Ciid%3A2

Should I?

Somewhat.

Maybe you should get it so you can have a Stuka with 2 droppable bombs.

My Stuka can only handle one bomb.


I suggest you buy a few of these and attach them to all your planes for more realism

What the fuck are you getting next for your collection?



I think you should get some 1/72 tanks.

I don’t want tanks. Or jets.

Still looking for a Corsair at a good price.
