Hi! I'm making a webgame which will contain famous airplanes from the countries United Kingdom, USSR, USA, Germany, Japan.

It would be nice to have atleast 1 bomber, 1 seaattack, 1 dogfighter from each country. If there excist several famous, then they could be in the list also, just not to many.

I know that it will be a big list and a lot of work, but it's very important to make the game realistic.

I've been searching on my own, but there is so many airplanes to choose from, and I have no idea whichones that is famous.

Thanks in advance!
Hello warpi :D Are you looking for WWII planes? If so, this is the place to look! If you're looking for planes from other era's, we coul probably scrounge something up as well :D

What's your preference?
Hi! Thanks for the fast reply! Sorry, I forgot to nemention. It should be airplanes from the WW2 :)

The thing is that I have no idea which ones is famous and it's impossible to have them all because then the game would be to complicated maybe.

Thanks in advance!
My suggestion is to try something like going to google or askjeeves and typing in the Phrase "famous fighters of WW2" <------ just like that with quotes around it see where it takes you.

What do you mean by seaattack? A plane starting from ships? If so then:

bomber: Heinkel He 111, Junkers Ju 88
seaattack: none (Fw 200 starting from ground)
dogfighter: Messerschmitt Bf 109, Focke-Wulf Fw 190 (definitely both!)

bomber: Mitsubishi G4M Betty
seaattack: Mitsubishi A6M Zeke (Zero), Aichi D3A Val
dogfighter: Mitsubishi A6M Zeke (Zero), Nakajima Ki-44 Shoki (Tojo)

bomber: Avro 683 Lancaster
seaattack: Fairey Swordfish, Supermarine Seafire
dogfighter: Hawker Hurricane, Supermarine Spitfire

bomber: Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator
seaattack: Grumman F4F Wildcat, Douglas SBD Dauntless
dogfighter: North American P-51, Republic P-47 Thunderbolt

bomber: Tupolev SB-2, Petlyakov Pe-8
seaattack: none
dogfighter: Polikarpov I-16 Ishak, Lavochkin La-5, Jakolev Jak-3
If you don't have a Spitfire Mk. XIV in there I'll kick you in the nuts.
