I highly doubt the Ho 229 will be included. Its a simulator focused mainly on civilian aircraft.

Not really, it was supposed to be a fighter, and WWII fighters tended to be small/medium in size. Its wingspan was of 7,47m.[quote=“John_Preston21, post:4, topic:23765”]
The graphics alone would impact performance

The impact on performance might be even lower than the available aircrafts: no need for a large fuselage, only a wing with a canopy and cockpit attached.

Not to be negative. But I don’t think you will ever see this aircraft in IF.

You don’t see most of the the requested features implemented into IF …

On a second thought, I’d love to fly this 1st generation stealth fighter on IF.

This would be a great addition. I have always loved the look of stealth fighters, and what better way to start getting them in the sim than with the first?

Oh man I would love to see this bird ! I’m a real fan of but unfortunately I think the devs won’t be able as the amount of data is way too little to develop this aircraft.
It will stay a dream but I still love it tho :) Currently trying to get it in War Thunder

cough cough @Butter_Boi

Just look at this man ! The Germans nearly built the first stealth aircraft !

but it’s better they didn’t :)

I’ll admit, that’s a cool aircraft, and would be a joy to fly in IF!


Matter of fact, I’m only 1 plane away from the F-80, and I have 2 P-51’s, 😛
