    Does "Tempest" suit as a British fighter-bomber?

    I think u're right. Hawker Typhoon is a real British fighter-bomber. At this moment British avia has bomber Mosquito, which is good, but doesn't has rockets. So, Typhoon will be more effective. OK, let's start to compile information Wink

    Armament is quite impressive:
    Guns: 4 × 20 mm Hispano Mk II cannon (or 12x7.7mm Browning)
    Rockets: 8 × RP-3 unguided air-to-ground rockets.
    Bombs: 2 × 500 lb (227 kg) or 2 × 1,000 lb (454 kg) bombs

    Hurricane Mk.IId (2x40mm) - the best choice for African missions,
    Hurricane Mk.IIc (4x20mm) - may be additionaly used as a Lend-Lease VVS RKKA aircraft.

    Extra argument: on the Western Front the British troops may be supported by USAAF, but not in Africa.

    There are not too many missions for the GBR side. Suppose there are only two:
    "Across from Pyrgoss"
    "Dust in the wind2", where Mosquito used as aviation support.
    I'd like to have rather one attack-plane for the common case. We may change armament depends on the period/area of using. So, Typhoon is preferable one.
    Thunderbolt was made as US side unit, but of course it could be used for the British side also. The question is - who will make such mission? Wink
    I've idea to make mission on the the base "Kasserine Pass" battle, but it's only project for the very long future.
