    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

    http://worldwar2headquarters.com/HTML/aircraft/britishAircraft/typhoon.html

    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.
