    The peoples aicraft are as such:

    Lanc- Lancaster
    C.C - P.108
    GrG - Me-262A-1a
    LG - P-38 Lightning
    Me - Spitfire
    Brad - Manchester

    That P.108 is nothing special, it was an experiment. Do you know they tested Spitfires with flamethrowers as a ground attack plane but soon realised it was stupid.

    Rear defense would be one thing. I would think with a forward firing flame thrower you would soon be flying into your own flame.

    :lol: if the cockpit of the pilot behind got couvered in oil, he wouldn't be able to see, so it would be pretty effective................

    Mind you it may have been effective if they place the flamethrower under the spitfire then it would surely be spitting fire !!!!1 :D
