These previews are stating to become a regular thing now :p

It was hard deciding on the US postwar ground attack plane, there was about half a dozen I could pick from but in the end the AD-6 (or A-1H as it was called after 1962) shone above the rest. Having a service life spanning from 1945 up to the early 70’s (four times that of some of the other choices) & the ability to carry more munitions then a B-17 kinda won me over.

In the next update I’ll have some ingame pics of the Skyraider plus some US bombers too.

Yes! Absolute wise choice, MiGy!
think of a ground attacker, it can be launcher from a CV, pretty well protected, carries more than a B-17, idog-fight ability almost matches the prop air superiorty fighters in the same era, and shoot down a Mig17 in Vietnam.
What eles could come close?

BTW, I think Twilus meant the vertical rudder is a little bit too thick. All others nice.

maybe he meant cubish?
but after looking on a pic with the real one i don't think much can be done, plus, it probably won't be even noticeable in the game
