Hello there, as the title suggest, I think that the Arado 234 should get it s historical boosters(RATO devices)(Walter HWK 109-500).

Spoiler

The Walter HWK 109-500 was a liquid fuelled rocket motor developed by Walter in Germany during the Second World War.

The 109-500 is a self-contained. modular monopropellant Starthilfe (take-off assist) motor in a pod, able to produce 500 kg (1,100 lb) thrust for thirty seconds. After the fuel was expended, the pod was jettisoned and it returned to earth by parachute, with the parachute packed externally, onto the blunt forward end of the pod.

It entered service in 1942, and some 6,000 were built, by Heinkel. It was "used extensively on a wide range of aircraft", especially the potentially underpowered (when heavily laden with external ordnance) Jumo 004-engined Arado Ar 234B, with two of the units uniquely displayed as mounted operationally on the NASM's sole surviving, restored Ar 234B.

I like the sound of it. Would we need new mechanics for the parachute drop? Or could you just get away with piggybacking the parachuting airmen from bailing out?

Il-28, Il-28Sh, Tu-14, and Kikka do not needs mods for their RATO's, why should 234?

234B cannot take off full load from short AF, barely take off from long ones.

This would be a great help for all the pilots who land after their first bomb-drop and consequentially have to take-off again, which is kinda slow with only two Jumo engines and a bomb-load of 1,5 tons. It's historical and would help the Arado 234B gameplay and since the B doesn't have guns, I think this is a very reasonable tool to have. I fully support this! +1 :yes_yes_yes:

+1 to this.  It should also be applied to the Arado Ar 234B night fighter if we ever get it.
