The threat from the East
In the 1950’s, with Europe having been just cleaved into two by the Allies and the Soviets, the Swiss, while neutral, were looking quite anxiously towards their eastern border. Especially taking into consideration that their best tank was a slightly improved Jagdpanzer 38(t), the G-13. The Swiss felt underprotected against a possible Soviet threat. Continue reading

A reasonably succinct account of the events and screw ups leading up to Dunkirk.
So here is part 3 of the Swiss Wowp tech tree.
Since we have covered all the main lines we will now list all of the premiums we have in the tree. Now these are just the projects we thought would be great premiums but there are a bunch more projects which could be premium but we have not included due to various reasons but there are more possible premiums if needed.
Tier 2 :Häfeli DH-5S MVa ( Fighter)
Designed by August Häfeli in 1929 as an armed reconnaissance and trainer aircraft. With it’s 7.5mm synchronized machine gun and it’s rear gun it would be a nice tier 2 candidate.
Since part 1 of the Tech tree showcase series went well. We decided to continue with part 2 of the Swiss World of Warplanes Tech tree including the heavy fighter line and the Ground Attacker line.
Heavy fighter line:
Tier 5: P-2110
The Heavy fighter line starts from the C-3601 and at tier 5 we have the P-2110 which is extremely reminiscent of the BF 110 heavy fighter.
It has 2 1250 hp engines and has a calculated top speed of 544 km/h it mounted 4 7.5mm MGs and 2 20mm guns in the nose of the plane and has 1 twin 7.5mm MG in the rear of the cockpit. Continue reading
Greetings everyone, since Wowp 2.0 is in the works and is, as of yet, very well received considering it’s past. Blockhaj and I have decided to show some of the Tech tree proposals we have worked on in the last couple of months.
Today we start with the first part of the swiss tree as this is one of the 2 nations where we have the most information gathered, the other one being the swedish tree, there are however many other trees we have prepared as well.
However for the Swiss tree we are starting with the 2 fighter lines which will end in 2 tier 9 and 10s per line.
The fighter line, or in this case, Multi role fighter lines will be divided by manufacturer: Dornierwerke Altenrhein ( Doflug), later Flug- und Fahrzeugwerke Altenrhein ( FFA) and
Eidgenössische Flugzeugwerke Emmen ( EFW)
Note that this is merely a proposal so planes are subject to change.
