Quote1. In the game, I am planning to use the Blohm & Voss BV 222 flying boats to evacuate injured German soldiers from the Alpenfestung to the Allied port of Trieste.
Since wen are the Alps so high as Himalaya ?
the Blohm & Voss BV 222 service ceiling is 7300 meter
last time i looked the Alps are much lower that or has this change ?
(even at 4500 meter for cruise speed the BV222 can fly easy over that part of Alps to get to Trieste...)Quote2. Could the Messerschmitt Me P.1112 be in the flying prototype stage by May 1946?NOPE, That program start In early 1945 with completion of a Wood Mockup in April 1945, planned first prototype flight for June 1946.
Here lies the problem "planned" not mean, it will flight on that date, but realistic much later
Oh By the Way,
Messerschmitt had several production sites and Büros near the Alps
like the design department in Oberammergau and several Small production sites for Me 262.
go for more advance Me 262 Variant or P.1101 who had it prototype completed in April 1945Quote3. Could the BMW Strahlbomber II (and with it the BMW 018 turbojet engine) be produced from late 1945 onwards to replace the Arado Ar 234 C?
I have No idea how far that Program went at BMW, most literature only mention the design, not the program
Can be that BMW design was only a "Papertiger" collecting dust in archive of RLM
in that case go for Messerschmitt P.1100
it based on Me 262 so it's the production sites can modify by building the Bomber Fuselage instead
Thanks for the answer, it seems you really know your stuff. But I think I need to clarify some things:
About the BV 222: Its not the cruising altitude that is the problem, its the climbrate. You see, in the Alps there isnt enough room to circle and gather altitude slowly (at least not for a BV 222), because at one point you are going to run into a mountain and then we have a problem. Thats why normal Bramos or Jumo 222s aint going to cut it.
I am already planning to have Me 1101 in the game, great thining about the 1100 tough. Do you have any ideas for the production designation maybe?
