Awesome model and texture as always!

One thing though- why does the bottom one have more support beams between its left wings than it has on the right side?

Those are actually the supports attached to the engine cowling. I admit that I had to take a closer look to see it though.

Turkish007 Jun 13 2013 replied:

They arent going to. Everyone would love to haveminor factions including me, but that is just too much work for a little developing team right now.

Also, we arent having Poland in 1939, who would expect the Romanians? Lol.

Too bad BF2 doesn't have any advanced damage model or anything close to it. And the flight model is very simple (
Also I think Po-2 will be useless in game. Just shoot it with MG's and rifles.

Originally known as the U-2, the aircraft was designed in the late 1920s by Nikolai Polikarpov as a replacement for the U-1. It saw extensive use by civilians and the military. Its application as a crop duster gave it the nickname Kukuruznik, derived from the word for maize. At the start of the war, the Soviet Air Force was using the Po-2 for all kinds of work, including liaison, medivac, reconnaissance and general supply.

Its most famous use was as a night bomber. With a machinegun added to the observer's cockpit and space for up to 350 kg of bombs or RS-82 rockets beneath the wings, it was used in daring low level attacks. The distinctive engine sound, and the near silence of the gliding bombing runs in the dead of night gave these missions a psychological effect in excess of any material damage caused. Perhaps the most notorious pilots were the all female 588th Night Bomber Regiment - the so called Night Witches.

The Po-2 was hard to detect, and a challenging target for fighters to shoot down. Its simple construction could absorb many hits with little effect, the pilots flew incredibly low to the ground, and it was so slow compared to Bf 109 and Fw 190 fighters that keeping on target for any decent length of time was nearly impossible. Between 30 and 40 thousand Po-2 were assembled between 1928 and 1959, and our one was made by Herc.
