Description: The BF109 G14 was a German fighter of the Second World War. The BF109 G14 was one of the latest versions of the 109 that were produced in the latest years of the war. In 1944, the BF109 G6 was no longer adequate to contain the enemy fighters, so Messershimit had to make a new version of it to be in pairs with allied aircraft. The main differences between the G6 and the new version, called G14, were mainly the engine, which was changed to the more powerful DB605AM. This new engine was able to give the aircraft the needed speed and climb rate to reach an adequate altitude in time. In the Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana service, the G14 started to arrive in mid-1944. It was mainly used against the fighter and bomber formations. They scored multiple successes against the Allied air force, but in the end, their enemies proved to be too numerous to be countered. At the end of the war, most of the Italian G14, as well as all the other Bf109, were destroyed or badly damaged. But they proved to be very effective in the Italian hands against the allied aircraft.

Why it should be in the game: It could be a good addition to be foldered with the G14/AS or to replace one of the Hunarian premium 109.

Although I agree with the sentiment that Italy should have its indigenous designs prioritised over this, it would be great to see this aircraft to pad out the superprop era of Italy.

And? That doesn’t mean we have to see another Bf-109. This is actually crazy. Literal German main arguments.
Why would you want a plane that doesn’t allow you to have fun with MEC and offers a mediocre ground striking loadouts?

Very simply: bigger techtree, more options under the flag i love, the possibility to play it if i want or ignore it if i don’t wanna play it and just having it, more like a collection piece.

Yes, I think German aircraft would be great as premiums so more Italian aircraft, even prototypes, can be TT
