Mosquito and more
The highlight feature here is, of course, the release of the Battle of Normandy Mosquito FB.VI. This fighter-bomber variant of the famous Mosquito was used for a variety of operations both at night and during the day. It’s array of eight guns including four 20mm Hispano cannons in the nose offer a potent punch against anything infront while a decent top speed and heavy bomb and rocket firepower make this a dangerous aircraft.
1CGS also have given us the 57mm armed “Tse Tse” Mosquito variant. Look forward to doing some anti-shipping operations with that.
There are other updates included as well. Balloons now have collidable tethers. Fire effect of collapsed buildings has been improved. Ship and vehicle gunners have had some updates and ship gunners now have improved firing arcs.
The AI has seen some tweaks to their ground attack behavior and will cease firing at targets faster as they pull off of the target.
There are also a bunch of small stability fixes and other quality of life enhancements.
