How do I jump into the seat of a Nazi plane?
They show up on the right of the screen menu but clicking on them doesn't take me to them like it does for allied planes.
The manual has a section devoted to telling you how to pilot these craft so you must be able to fly them.(just got the game yesterday sorry if its in the manual, but I cant find it)

In PRACTICE Misions you can only fly the planes on your side.

In Regular missions you can fly EITHER Side.

Well, I believe few of them were actually in the National Socialist Party, in fact if I remember correctly Offiziers were forbidden to take part in Politics.
I agree with the Colonel, we would prefer not to have the NAZI term used, especially when some of us fly for "The Other Side", therefore der "Luftwaffe" is the most common name used.
Not trying to split hairs, we know what you mean, but some Luftwaffe squadron websites have been shutdown by their ISP's because of someone unleashing the Nazi word.

I stand corrected and read you loud and clear.
Thanks for pointing that out to me.
I was posted in Germany(Lahr)for 4 years with the Canadian Armed Forces.
I know how sensitive the "N" word can be.
Sorry if I offended anyone..
Merry-Christmas!
(by the way I loved the whole time I spent in that beautiful country. Living in the Black Forrest and getting paid for it was just a dream come true)

Thanxs Osprey for ur understanding. U see, as Blond_Knight said, very little percent of the german soldiers where really Nazis in all the bad meaning of the words. Most of them where proud fighter pilots and soldiers, exactly like there US and UK counterparts was. They was not bad people, most of them did not really want the war, and they had no other chance than to fight or get shoot...thats why we wanted them to be called Luftwaffe or germans neither than Nazis. Nazis are the bad @$$ses who was in courted in nürnberg, and of course, Hitler itselfe. But not most of the brave figthing man out in the field and air.

thanxs again for ur understanding

I Agree that Word "N" should be used to minimum. I come from Croatia, there we had a pro. "N" government. My parnets were Tito's Partizans. Only selected groups of the German army were special SS, but majority were normal 3rd Riech army.

After the war ended, whether you believe it or not, but many Germans were shocked with the atrocities that were commited by the "SS".

My best friends come from Germany. I love that Country as well. Unfortunately "N" is a dark history of that region, and as of the world, but we should not use it as it makes a deep impact on the feelings of the people that come from there.
