Well, I bought the game yesterday and have managed 4 games so far. When I (and the others) get a few more games under our belts I'll suggest this plane to them.

However, from looking at what you posted it seems okay. However what are its damage characteristics and its health?
Also, as you're making it a fast plane you could maybe use the D deck as it is slightly faster than C.

This plane isn't out yet is it?
As far as I know there aren't any expansions for DoW.
Otherwise I may just have to get them!

According to some things I've read, the system is eventually slated to include bomber/escort missions. I'm hoping to see the possibility for interceptions of He-111s and Dorniers over Britain and B-17/B-24 formations with Little Friends vs. Bf-109s and FW-190s.

I'm holding off a bit on buying the game to see if these reports hold true.

On a different note, I've had the good fortune to see P-47s in the air at the "Thunder Over Michigan" airshow. They might look a bit inelegant on the ground with that big round fuselage and huge radial engine, but the P-47 is a lovely graceful thing in the air. I think it's the elliptical quality of the wings that really makes it pretty in flight, but the thing just slices through the air as slick as can be. Much prettier while flying than still photos or even videos can convey.

They could take a beating, too--didn't have the same radiator vulnerability as the P-51.

Hmmm...again, by simply looking at the stats (and now with another game under the belt ) I'd suggest either reducing the health to about 16-17 or reducing it by one and taking away the long range A.
It seems quite overpowered at the moment as the ME 109E has a health of 17 (maybe 18) and has the same attack stats it does not, however, have the supercharger.

One more thing you should add into the rules is make sure you state that the speed are FAST FAST FAST SLOW. you simply stated 3 fasts, you forgot to state that it only has one slow.

Thats my two cents anyway. I hope to have a chance at using it this week.
