French in CLOD

Post by Spirit » Fri Dec 01, 2017 12:00 pm

Hey guys I was wondering why TF havn't added any french aircraft to the game for the early BOF missions we play. What was the involvement of the french airforce during the BOF and after the push back into france later into the war?

If we have a G50 and BR20, I would love to have seen a french fighter and bomber available to fly
Catch me if you can...

Why, you'd just fly around waving a white flag?

I know they had started work on the D.520, but O don't think they were able to get it in for 4.5.

They will most likely save the D.520 for the desert theatre, either as an extra for the Battle of France or added to a potential "Operation Torch" DLC (whether we'd be alive to play it is a different story). "Operation Torch" would also support the F4F Wildcat or 'Martlet' also in production.

Ah, Operation Torch. When men were men and French gave up as per usual.

For the same reasons that haven't put polish aircrafts, we have enough useless things in this game... :clown:
