Halberstadt CL.II IRL

The Halberstadt CL.II was a two-seat attack biplane flown by the German Luftstreitkräfte during World War I. Designed to supersede the earlier, unsuccessful D.IV, the C.II (later redesignated the CL.II) was pressed into the roles of escort fighter and armed reconnaissance aircraft upon its introduction in May 1917. From then on it proved itself to be a highly capable aircraft, with good maneuverability and rate of climb. 900 aircraft were built in total.

It was during the Battle of Cambral in November 1917 that the CL.II first demonstrated its effectiveness as a ground-attack aircraft, contributing significantly to the German counterattack. From then on the CL.II was increasingly given the task of close support, or Schlachtstaffeln (battle flights) - a tactic that has become commonplace in combined armed warfare today. The CL.II also participated in the Spring Offensive of 1918, and was retired at the end of the war.

The Halberstadt CL.II was demonstrated at the "EA Play" event on June 12, 2016. It is a two-seat attack plane, with the pilot operating a variety of ground attack weapons, and the gunner a Parabellum MG 14 turret capable of 360° coverage.

The pilot may choose between an MG 08 heavy machine gun, 20mm Autocannon, or a 57mm Nose Gun. For secondary armament, the pilot may use 10kg high explosive bombs, 50kg bombs, or Explosive Rockets.

Compared to a fighter plane, all weapons have more pronounced arc due to lower muzzle velocity. The CL.II also lacks the bombers' anti-armor weaponry.
