    Ok Folks,

    We've all had a go at picking our own airforce - Nows the time to try and pick 9 Aircraft for the opposition to your own airforces list. Again, there must be 1 trainer 1 transport Aircraft.

    The rules are simple - The Aircraft MUST come from THREE different counties ( to cutdown any patriotic bias) , but they MUST have seen service in world war 2.

    it can comprise of the worst aircraft around at the time, or decent machines to give the ones on your list a run for its money, or even a mixture of the two!

    you cant just copy the list of YOUR airforce over as the enemy's and if you do put down all the worst aircraft around, it will show that you dont have the confidence in your own aircraft list to beat them!


    Happy Listing!! :lol:

    I just realized you were supposed to have aircraft from 4 different countries and I did not, so I swapped out the transport with a C-47 and the Ground Attack Typhoon with a Il-2 Sturmovick.

    I think my other one can take but it will be quite interesting and there will be pilots on both sides hitting the Hartmann numbers!
