Is the He-177. The configuration of the engine is for an aerodynamics gain

Sorry, I got the name wrong. :(

"A four-engine version would have been possible with existing engines like the Daimler-Benz DB 601, but the four-engine layout would imply higher propeller drag for dive bombing. The use of only two propellers on a heavy bomber offered many advantages such as a substantial reduction in drag, reduction of dive instability, and a marked improvement in maneuverability."

I understand why they were trying to do it.   But once they had such problems with the technological issues, just move on to a more simplified engine design/plane design to get it into the fight.

Plus, who is really thinking that such a plane is going to be used for dive bombing!!!!

Here is the Me 264, but this is a more basic design that it would seem that they could have place four engines on the He-177 wing.  Even four Jumo 211(or the forementioned DB 601) inline engines could have been used to keep drag down.

But they also keep flying the He-177 well into the winter 44/45 on missions over England.  Surely those resources could have been better spent elsewhere.

Like bringing more of the Ta-152s on line against the Allied heavy bomber attacks.  I just love the Ta-152!  Kurt Tank was amazing.

You enderstand my opinion with the number of planes the priority is for fighter in this 44/45 not to bombers...

paint job on the planes looks amazing!  I hope I get the chance to play you in this game at some point!

Can you share your enhanced plane rules for the game?  I noted you have some additional nationalities and additonal plane types - I am really interested in how you incorporate them into the game. . .

cheers,
mark

For the differents airplanes. Someone is for esthetic, for another is a new unit exemple on the Brit a have two medium bomber unit the Blenheim and the Wellington in this case is for esthetic of the game not a real unit. For the Brit the Blackburn Skua naval dive bomber is a new unit. I give you the stat after i have finished the list of new units, whit pleasure.

I have a new optional rule for the supply. On the first turn is the normal penality. And on the second turn only the number of the territory in unit can survive. Example if a territory have 3, only 3 of all sort of unit can rest in that territory, with the normal penality. If the territory have no value every unit surender on turn 2. This not rule tested. But i feel is interesting
