    How'bout modelling a Caproni Campini, one of the world's first jet airplanes?

    Re: Next Update Poll - Gladiator or CR.42?

    How does that fit into the projected scope of TFS 5.0 and beyond at all?

    Without having carried out any research into said aircraft I assume that it:

    i) did not see production in any significant numbers.
    ii) did not see any service or action during WWII.

    The only jet aircraft which would have a right to exist in a historic WWII combat flight sim would be the Me262, He162, Ar234 and Meteor. And even those were a rare sight back then.
    There's literally dozens of aircraft which would do a better service to the sim and community. Time, manpower and resources are limited and cant be thrown around aimlessly.

    Re: Next Update Poll - Gladiator or CR.42?

    Yes, you are right. It was merely a prototype that inspired other manufacturers of future jet powered aircraft.
    The Me262 definitely has a higher priority. That would be an interesting addition to 5.x when its time comes...

    The timeframe covered by 5.0 however only goes as far as mid/late 1942 and is centered on North Africa, a theatre that the German Wehrmacht had long retreated from by the time the Me262 entered service. I wouldn't hold my breath for any jets to make an appearance in CloD, just saying.

    Guess you could have asked about this one Noofy. Or not

    This was the next video after watching the one you posted.

    Have to say, I've never seen any like this. How it didn't make it to mass production is one of the great mysteries of the world.

    Very brave pilots!

    Schade. Would have been interesting to fly a Me262.
    Maybe in 6.0 or 7.0 then...
    In the meantime looking forward to the Macchi 202

    Re: Next Update Poll - Gladiator or CR.42?

    Oooo, I dunno, that Stipa-Caproni looks like a winner, definitely 6.3 confirmed


    Naa, I am looking forward to the next aircraft in the lineup, and maaaaaaybe a Swordfish down the line in a few years :3

    But seriously some of those planes are remarkable, simply because of how, or more to the point, why they were made.
    That is literally a De Havilland Gipsy engine suspended inside a massive metal cylinder with one of the strangest cockpits ever seen! Also that tailplane is held on by what exactly? Instead of having a perfectly good contact point of decent surface area (Being a standard fuselage or at least a good number of stringers) they go for the "well, three surfaces, three contact points...she'll be right" approach.


    I dunno about anyone else, but give me one of those old six winged things from 1910 and I would be less nervous flying it, at least I would be going slow. Honestly almost anything that looks like a real attempt at an aircraft, and not something that appears to have been made out of what seems to be the last toilet roll that was decommissioned yesterday, now combined with some of the card stock in my office cabinet

    A real aircraft needs to have at least one propellor.
    As long as there are so many fascinating piston engine powered aircraft left, you can leave those blow driers alone as far as I'm concerned.


    @TheChristianPilot
    'Toilet roll with wings' really nails it!

    Not nice for the gliders
