this suggestion is made in support to the addition of the the Minor Axis-Nation

 

i would like to suggest an interresting light attacker for the eventual Minor Axis tree. the IAR 37 series

iar37-2.jpg

 

the IAR 37 was built by the Romanian under the official requirement of reconnaissance plane and tactical bomber (equivalent to a dive bomber). the prototype was based on the french Potez 25. the prototype was offering to the plane an better defense, a glassed canopy and more powerful engine than the french ancestor. the project start in 1936 and planed to fit a IAR 14K (a French Gnome-Rhone sublicensed engine) in the new plane. the prototype, the IAR 37-1 flow for the first time in spring 1937. the good performance of the plane which resulted with a contract with the ministry of Army and Navy. 50 IAR 37 was deliver before the end of 1937. more plane was needed and the IAR 37 was an exelent plane at this time (for reconaissance and light bomber) but the IAR 14k of 870hp production suffer of many delay. an alternative was offer to fit to the plane the BMW-132 engine who was a bit weaker but available. the new plane was named the IAR 38 and suffer of a lot of performance lose. the IAR 38 was relayed on the reconaissance and observation role only due to the weakness of the engine making the plane too underpowered to carry a decent number of bombs. in novermber 1938, the new IAR 14K IIC-32 was now available and the engine was soon put into the plane that was in the production line as replacement to the BMW engine. the production went into a few strutural technical problem which was soon corrected but resulted to a new plane named the IAR 39. due to those probleme, the IAR 39 didn't flew before 1940 but show decent flight performence even for that time. 95 plane was produced before of the end of the year. a new engine was later introduced in 1942. the more powerful IAR 14K IV C was fitted in the plane by SET compagny after the production was been transfer. the new produced plane received the name of IAR 39a and received a production of 160 planes.

 

Variant

 

IAR 37

Spoiler

iar37-4.jpg

 

the IAR 37 was the first plane of the series. it had a exelent performance for his time and received a production of 50 planes in 1937. the production of the plane was converted in 1938 to the IAR 38 due to the availability of the IAR 14K engine that the IAR 37 used. the plane was armed with a total of four machine gun. two was fixed on the front, on the upper wing and was used for the offensive. one was at the rear of the canopy and used by the rear gunner/observer for the defense of the plane. a last machine gun was usually in the floor of the plane to be used by the observer and bomb aimer. this last machine gun was usually facing a bit backward. the plane could carry a load of 600kg of bomb, usually it was either 12 bombs of 50kg or 6 bombs of 100kg. the speed of the plane was good for a reconnaissance plane of his time with 335km/h

IAR 38

Spoiler

iar37-1.jpg

 

due to production delay of the IAR 14K engine. the IAR 38 was created with the BMW 132A 700cp. the machine gun armament remained unchanged and almost everything on the plane was the same except for serial modification on the nose and the size of the tail. the plane was a bit underpowered and wasn't used for bombing mission due to the incapacity of the plane to carry sufficient bomb. 75 planes was odered but 50 planes was built and used as reconnaissance and observation plane only. the 25 planes left to produced was converted to IAR 39

due to the poor performance and the incapacity to carry bomb, i would prefer to not see this plane in the game as it would make a poor fighter and can only be used as one.

 

IAR 39

iar37-7.jpg

 

as the production of the IAR 38 was undergoing, the new IAR 14K C34 engine was available in 1939 and the plane was tested in 1940 after a few modification. the plane was put into production as remplacement to the IAR 38 in the production line as the plane was performing better to any aspect. the plane was put into service in the Romanian forces and was used until the end of the war. 96 IAR 39 was built by either IAR or SET.

the IAR 39a was the last variant of the IAR 37 family. it was developed in 1942 with the new IAR 14K C36 engine. the new engine was more powerful than the previous one and required nearly no modification to the planes to install. the IAR 39a took over the IAR 39 in the production line. however, the production was moved from the IAR factory to the SET factory near Bucarest. the IAR 39a was produced until the end of the war with 160 planes built.

Thank you for the suggestion, However all these planes have been previously suggested as part of this suggestion. Please use this thread to further discuss these subjects.

 

Please support this suggestion with your information on these planes instead of having a single suggestion. :salute:

 

Locked.

 

Open for discussion.

These could have potential for addition at rank 1.  For a series of single-engined biplaned bombers, this things are quite heavily armed defensively, which could make attacking them dangerous if you're in a reserve fighter.  It'll still be a free kill for stuff like Hurricanes and H-75s though.

really? premiums? :facepalm:

 

Yes.  Gaijin has stated that future minor Axis nation vehicles will be premiums in the Italian tree.  It isn't like they'll be very expensive either, being tier 1 biplanes and all.  

 

If we do get a separate minor Axis tree I will change my tune but I don't think it's happening.

i dont think it either but that doesnt mean i support that idea. so i will always dislike it when people just accept that decision of gaijin
