I belive that Forgottenhope needs a plane specially designed for busting tanks and the German Luftwaffe apperently did also which is why the Henschel 129 was developed. It was specially designed as a twin engine aircraft that was used in close suppost of ground troops. The first prototype was HS 129B-1, it was armed with 2 20mm cannons and 2 7.92mm MG's The extrodinary part of this aircraft though was that in a later prototype, the HS 129B-3 which was shipped to the eastern front, was outfitted with a 75 mm panzer 4 cannon, fed by a 12 shell auto-loader. There's more at this website listed below http://www.absoluteastronomy.com/encyclopedia/h/he/henschel_hs_129.htm I think it would make a great addition to the FH airforce.

Id like to see a plane that doesnt bust tanks very well personally.
Its a year old so this thread will stay open...
btw, whos impressed I can remember 1 year old threads? ;)
I'd still like to see the Hurricane Mk.IID aswell.
The A-10 is called "Thunderbolt II" so shouldn't the P-47 be it's forefather?

'Impressed' isn't the word. :D
The game already has the IL2.

I think he's talking about for the Germans. Personally I think it would be a neat idea. That plane with the tank gun is freaking awesome, and would make a really cool addition to the mod

I am! Good to see you are a mod now MG42. The 129 is overrated. Anyone who has ever played IL2 Sturmovik knows how slow these birds are. Trust me, only the most skilled of FH pilots, like MG42Maniac here, would be able to weild it with any avail at all. You are better off flying Fw-190 A-8s and IL-2s than you are in this bird.
I would not mind seeing the 30mm version or no gun pod and a couple of 250kg bombs but the 75mm version I think most would not want to play as it was barely flyable. It was very badly underpowered. There was nothing wrong with the Hs-129 design that a pair of BMW 801 radials would not have cured.
But I think this would be a excellent addition to FH mostly because I want one in North Africa!!!
