I've spent the last several weeks building a Fairey Swordfish biplane, and had a really great fun with it. While reading up about the plane, an idea for a campaign came to my mind: what if we launched a campaign for the underdogs, the planes no one really expected much of, badly obsolete designs that somehow managed to punch well above their weight, delivered stunning performance despite being clearly outclassed or even planes that turned out so useful that they outlived their replacements? Well, you get the idea. Do you think it would be worth a try?
I could pull some examples out of the top of my head, like the said Swordfish, or Gloster Gladiator, Hs 123, Ju 87 in the late war, Hurricane (Spitfire stole all the glory, but it was the Hurricane that bore the brunt of the fighting in the BoB), MiG 19 in Vietnam, Aardvark in Desert Storm, A-10, even F-16 - designed as a cheap and expandable alternative to F-15, turned out to be a weapon that ruled the battlefields. Do you think it would make sense or maybe there would not be enough variety?
