As well known to all we have a historic shortage of CAS aircraft in the Italian TT.
Italian TT gamers have been waiting in vain for years.
The present post is to reiterate this need also on the new forum.
The TT needs, and is a manifest need and a widespread and shared opinion of:
The Aermacchi MB326 series (especially the K/Impala model)
The Aermacchi MB339 series
AMX Ghibli (A-11A, A-11B and the Brazilian version A-1)
MD Harrier II
Furthermore, as a quick remedy, a series of C&P could be introduced to the lower BRs, among these:
P-39 (the only nation in the game to have used them and which does not have them in the TT)
P-51 (Besides being an excellent fighter it also has good CAS capabilities, and also in this case this model is missing only in Italy, this is now ridiculous given that in other trees there are also war prize planes)
Curtiss SB2C-5 Helldiver
controversy has often arisen about the C&P, the opinion has changed a lot recently after the introduction of the good P-47D which gave a significant boost to the mid/low CAS line, then it is useless to look for what does not exist or imaginative prototypes , obscure and without documentation, when there are viable alternatives. Moreover, C&Ps do not take away the possibility of having native aircraft, which in any case has never happened in all these years, so I would say that it is also time to get over it.
Tornado is only available for top tier setup and it is far from being a comfort CAS, it’s like a strategic bomber in lower br battles, you can kill tanks with it if you are lucky, but you will be deleted from the sky very easily.
Though again imo lower br jets are more necessary for Italian TT, currently the tree has a little variety at jet era and huge gaps (like from 6.3 to 8.0, from 9.7 to 10.7), Aermacchi and AMXes will be like a fresh air + can add some nice premiums.
