Well i could've just listed all of the Bf 109 variants used in North Africa. :p However i felt that the more common versions would be more appropriate. The Bf 109E-7 is basically a Bf 109E-4/N with provision for a single 551lb bomb or a 66 imperial gallon drop tank on a centreline hardpoint so the two would be possible with one model. I'm not sure whether the Bf 109F-4/Z was more common than the Bf 109F-4 in North Africa, but the GM-1 Nitrous Oxide Injection could prove handy. A possible alternative to the Bf 109G-2 would be the Bf 109G-2/R6 'Kanonenboot' with an aditional pair of MG151/20's in undering pods.

I would like to see the North African Bf109E's lose their engine mounted 20mm gun.

E-3's came with a MG FF 20mm cannon in the nose between the cylinder banks which was removed due to problems with overheating, jamming, and vibrations.

This was especially so in North Africa where the sand, dust, and heat caused even more problems.

E-4's did not have the 20mm cannon from the factory but IIRC there was a kit to install one in he field. But for resons stated above most North African Bf109E's did not use the nose cannon.

This made standard armament in North African Bf109E's 2 x 7.9mm in the cowling above the engine and 2 x 20mm MG FF in the wings.

I also had data concerning Hurricane IIB's in North Africa that I cant find but am looking for.

The data said that Hurricane's in North Africa used the Vokes air filter which caused a drastic speed reduction. To improve speed and to improve the aircraft's performance in teh hot desert air the outer .303 MG's were removed leaving a 8 gun Hurricane IIB.

By the time the Hurricane IIC came out teh Hurricane was mostly relegated to the fighter bomber role and the 4 x 20mm cannons were excellent for strafing Axis supply coloums.

Maybe because climbing and diving are used for the up and down arrow keys? And raising and lowering the landing gear is doing fine as is in automatic?

I would much rather have a button for brakes. You can land on the belly anyways, thats usually better than using the wheels because you have no brakes.

erm. thats why you slow down a bit before landing... those variants sound good for a quik addition. mot much to change. edit: oh, and since there is no after burner on any of the WWII planes (except maybe the nitros bf109) could the shift button be used instead as a break? it shouldnt be hard...
