Air warfare of World War II was a major component of World War II in all theatres, and (with anti-air defense) consumed a large fraction of the industrial output of the major powers. Germany and Japan depended on air forces that were closely integrated with land and naval forces; they downplayed the advantage of fleets of strategic bombers, and were late in appreciating the need to defend against Allied strategic bombing. By contrast Britain and the United States took an approach that greatly emphasized strategic bombing, and to a lesser degree, tactical control of the battlefield by air, and adequate air defenses. They both built a strategic force of large long-range bombers that could carry the air war to the enemy's homeland. Simultaneously they built tactical air forces that could win air superiority over the battlefields, thereby giving vital assistance to ground troops. They both built a powerful naval-air component based on aircraft carriers, as did Japan; these played the central role in the war at sea.
Before 1939 all sides operated under largely theoretical models of air warfare. The Italian theorist Giulio Douhet in the 1920s summarized the faith that airmen during and after World War I developed in the efficacy of strategic bombing. Many said it alone could win wars, as "the bomber will always get through". The Americans were confident that the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bomber could reach targets, protected by its own weapons, and bomb, using the Norden bombsight, with "pickle barrel" accuracy Japanese aviation pioneers felt that they had developed the finest naval aviators in the world.

What's New in Version 1.01
There are several fixes in this version including sharing cancel button not responding problem.
A very neat app!
I think that this app is very fascinating, but I wish there were all of the pictures. For example, the Blohm & Voss Bv142. For the first medium bomber and the heavy bombers, I found pictures for
them in moments on google images. It also is missing a few planes, such as the Yokosuka MXY-7 "Ohka" (cherry blossom).
I hope to see more apps like this for vehicles by you, and also maybe weapons.
Y love it
Its the best y love it. But put some experimental craft
