In my threads on the M26 and 162, people mentioned a 1946 arena, and I thought it might be a good addition and even attract more players. AC could include the HE-162D, the TA/FW-183 high-alt interceptor,HO-229, vampire mk1, P-80, and the jet replacement for the Stuka. Feel free to make more suggestions.Also, GVs could include the Maus, IS3, E-100, and latter models of the M26.

I sure wouldn't mind an arena with F8F, F4U-5, Sea Fury, Firefly, etc.    It would be kinda fun.

Wish I could foretell the future.  I have doubt that the allure of 1946 planes, to the extent that it will attract anyone, will double the player base.  After the gloss wears off, I suppose you could add 1950s jets, and then Vietnam jets, and the beat might go on.  But I think the diminishing player base is due to factors other than the types of aircraft available to us.

As I've said, there aren't many good Vietnam sim out there, so that could also atract some new players. Same goes for Korea as well, haven't seen a good one at all. So those ideas could be helpful to attracting players, let alone being pretty dam fun  :D

How about this idea, then? Forget Luftwaffe '46. It's not reality. Instead, how about a 1950-1953 arena that features any real (genuine production military ac for which there is test data) ac from the postwar-Korea era. You coul do something similar for 60-73and pick up Vietnam and all the me wars.
Some say revenge is a dish best served cold. I say it's usually best served hot, chunky, and foaming. Eventually, you will all die in my vengeance vomit firestorm.

That's why you do a '73 arena:
F-4 vs. Mig-21

Mirage III vs. Mig-21

F-105 vs. Mig-21

Mig-21 vs. Mig-21

F-111 vs. Mig-21

A-4 vs. Mig-21

Seriously, though, there'd be other Russian planes... mostly Mig-17s and 19s.

As long as the ground targets were destructible, wouldn't that be what people want based on how most of the arena plays?  :devil
