SVA was a great recon fighter but not a dogfighter. It's a very famous aircraft, at least in Italy, because of Gabriele D'Annunzio as pilot, and the missions over Vienna.

So, if we'll never have an italian front SVA should be a must to have, but for the "game" Hanriot is much better.

Arent most of our early planes called scouts, not fighters. So it should fit right in.

Absolutely but you should fly it as an armed heavy recon. In this rule it was a superb aircraft: fast, powerfull and with a strong structure. Off course it was able also to engage but it was not its rule, not at all. Hanriot and Spad VII did it.

What i mean is:

- if people would like have this one as italian scout for the dog server it would be the worst solution; Hanriot and Spad VII would be better and historically correct for it;

- if people would like have an italian aircraft for a cooperative style mission, S.V.A would be perfect and really competitive, really a lot. You need a very fast scout to intercept it, if available…..

I hope that the italian front can be possible in the future - after the Western front fills-out a little more. A few gaps need to be plugged before wandering elsewhere. Some of the crates in the south were remarkable to behold, and the landscape would be breath-taking. Love to see it happen sooner than later, but think expansion in that direction is inevitable.

My opinion of expansion is this

1) Britain and the channel. It is small compared to Italy or Russia and will give the Gothas a place to go, as well as the Zeppelin looming in our futures. It would also finish the Western Front proper before moving elsewhere.

2)Southern Front - great variety of aircraft and stayed to the end

3)Eastern Front - Fewer aircraft, folded in 1917. Less to get excited about.

I know there are favorites, but I think those Gothas have got to go somewhere.

The game lacking more aircraft of the early years of air combat (1915-1916).
Above all two-seat observation and bombing ……

They should think about designing more aircraft models 1915 and 1916:

Aviatik CI (two seat, 1915)

L B G CII (two seat, 1915)

Rumpler CI (two seat, late 1915)

B.E.2c (two seat, late 1914)

AVRO 504 (two seat, 1914)

FE.2b (two seat 1916)

D.H.4 (two seat, 1917)

Love that Italian kite. And the Venetian Banner? Makes me get teary eyed for my ancestors. Nice!

And here's something I've been wondering about, does the modern Italian Air Force (Naval Air) have something going on with Venice and the Local Soccer (Calcio) club there? What is it with Green Black and Orange? I saw flags around Venice with green and black stripes, orange, and then the Italian Roundel in the corner. Anybody know what that is?
