0.5, 303... the MGs are just gravy on top of the quad nose Hispanos.

Sexy, I dont know. It belongs to the category of "so ugly that it is beautiful"...
or in this case, "beautifghter".
Well I have a slightly heavy trigger finger. In the Missin I always have mg's left over after the canons. .50's you could still lay some hate and be a force to be somewhat reckoned with

Lest we forget!  :old:

what does a thread like you doing on page 13?  :devil
Mosquito VI - twice the spitfire, four times the ENY.

Hi Mates

Me again.  Been asking for a Beaufighter for over 10 years.  This aircraft served in every area of WW2.  While people like Greebo, Skuz, Hitech are still around, please design and get one of these in our aircraft collection. 

Super airplane.  Should be here.

Many thanks

Cheers

Skuz ain't around (retired - good for him). If HT ever isn't the game won't be.

I agree this topic needs revisited.  Within the pages are Drawings, prints, several books of various models, Pilots notes,several of which I posted with the actual Pilot crossing out landing speeds and inserting his own.

Again.............as so many of us have asked for over 10 years why has this war winning aircraft been omitted?  It was versatile and would add a lot to the game and events as it served throughout all theaters of WWII.  I actually sent prints to Pyro from our NASM to view to help in modeling.  Along with other drawings of the Beau from the design board.  I posted pictures of the cockpit of the Beau also.

Yep.........this deserves to be looked at again.  Here's hoping!

I would venture to say, "the most requested bird that is not in the game".

Personally I think that it wouldn't get much use in MA. It's too slow to compete with the spaceships zipping around in there. I think you'd up seeing it even less then the 410.

Hi Mates

Ah yes, I was harping on this back in 2009 as well.  The Beaufighter and Beaufort belong in a WW2 game.  You got the Brewster Buffalo for pete's sake!! 

Great ground support and the Beufort served as torp bomber in ever theater of war in WW2.  Could use another torp bomber.

Problem is for the vast majority of players (other than AvA and special events) this isn't a world war 2 game. Its an open world conquest game with WW2 Era equipment.

Also, nobody can seem to sell this. If Dale was interested in including this model then he would have, by now. Currently, Aces High features 95 models and variants of fighter, attack and bomber aircraft, 23 models and variants of ground vehicles, from tanks to jeep and, debate-ably, the premier ships of the war (along with the Elco PT boat). Add to that ground guns of various kinds. This is a fairly rich and robust list of toys in this game, even when we consider a few models left out that would benefit events. When it comes to event gaps, the Beaus don't climb to the top of that list in my opinion. Add to the fact that game support is now strictly a work from home thing with the AH staff having been pared down, significantly.

Aces High still has legs, as is, but the time and energy to add new models to fill in a fetish of a few players is in limited quantity.

If there is another model added to this game then it better be able to create a customer draw as well as an event boost.
