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

 

i would like to suggest one of the plane that we selected to be a potential reserve plane for the eventual Minor axis tree. the Avia B-34

to be honest, the Avia B-34 is not an outstanding plane, the performance of the plane is almost identical to the He-51 who is also a reserve plane in the german tree and maybe the worse reserve plane in the game but it is still doing the job well enough, the Avia B-34 was originally a Czechoslovakian plane built for the the Czech air-force. the plane was designed in the early 30s and was a full metal built. the plane was soon related to the training duty in the Czech air-force until the country surrender to Germany in 1937. in the Czech service, a single plane was lost. 12 was been put into service in the czech army, from them, 8 was captured and used as trainer by the German Luftwaffe. of the last 3 plane still existing, they all saw service in the hand of the Slovak air-force (Slovakia was a puppet state of Germany and a member of the "Minor axis nation"). while no B-34 was confirmed to have saw combat, the plane was considered as very robust and durable, it was the kind of plane that could take some hit and still flying, thanks to the full metal construction. despite to the strong structure of the plane, the aircraft was unpopular amounts the pilots, mostly because of the poor flying performance which is partially caused by the heavy structure. while the flight performance was not really good, the armament wasn't so good either with only two machine gun on the side of the fuselage as the only armament of the plane (which is a bit poor in comparison to the I-15 or Furry who also act as reserve plane)

I would support having this aircraft along with the B-534 variant as premiums for the Germans in the reserve lineup. Seeing how there are records of the B-34 in Luftwaffe service I believe this may be suited in a current tree. When the international tech tree is added it can be removed accordingly. +1

the international tree was been confirmed to not happening. however, it was been confirmed that other nation will be considered. this plane is selected as a potential reserve for the Minor-axis nation if the tree is implemented someday. but of course, until it happen, all vehicles from the minor axis nation can be in any other nation, permanently or temporarily. but as this plane is performing nearly identically to the He-51, it may be not really needed in the German tree. in the past they did removed some vehicles because it was not really different than other vehicles. just take the example of those SM.79 removed in the up-date 1.37 because they was too much alike the other SM.79

 

to offer something a bit different, the B-534 could be better than the B-34 in the German tree. it was also well used in Germany in a larger number and also in many minor axis tree. mostly as escort for the Ju-87 in the invasion of Poland and as trainer later. it could cover the space left by the Italian biplane fighter.

Even though this topic isn´t about the addition as a german premium, it would be of course a great german premium (and a great regular addition to the axis tree) but i need to ask, if it gets into and international tree why should it be removed from the german tree?

+1, could work added to the game somehow (Czech vehicles present a problem for where to add them).
