Great stuff SkyChimp! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

Where in the world do you get all your sources? You seem to be the King of the Pacific Theater eratta. Maybe Luthier should promote you to the high exalted position of "chief getter of weird stuff" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I want to see this modelled in PF! Ground attack and shipping strikes just got a WHOLE lot more interesting.

Any references on when it was first deployed/used and what groups got it? Any pics that show what happened after it hits?

Interesting reads!

However, I am getting bored of this '44 or later US stuff...Did I miss something? I thought the war started '40 (even earlier)...Now all people talk about is Corsairs and Hellcats, and God forbid, Bearcats and Tigercats...not to mention Shinden-K stuff...

Whatever happened to the other years? The japanese victories, the struggle, the start of it all?

sorry to whine, but it's just that I would appreciate more info like this on earlier equipment/battles/aircraft/etc... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I have to agree with Xanty here.

It just represents a basic pattern that is easily noticeable and has existed with FB since it's inception.

There are the people are fascinated and very intent on flying the latest, greatest technology of the second World War, such as the TA-152 and the Bearcat and the Shinden...

and the types that are more interested in the early and mid-war period, where nobody knew yet how the War was going to turn out and technology on both sides was still developing. I'm a firm believer that the early-war planes have more character and require more skill & caution to fly and survive in.

Because fighting an A6M2 Zero in a P-40 E in 1941 is going to be quite a bit harder and more risky than fighting one in a Corsair or P-38 Lightning in 1944. At least, to anyone who knows not to dogfight with Zeros anyway. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hey xanty -

Just speaking for myself - I only posted thanks to Skychimp for this article - not "I cant wait to have these weapons"...

I am more than happy to fly early and late war equipment - I don't know whether the Chimp is posting it as an "I hope we get these quick" or if he is just bringing more good stuff to the forum... have to ask him that...

I didn't however assume that it was anything other than an interesting read from Skychimp. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hi all:

I am a whiner now.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

My main intention is to get the similar kind of great info and insights of the war period but covering many perspectives and all years...

It is great to build up the atmosphere and educate the future players... and these are great. But if we go on like this, we will have one side only...who is gonna sign up for the empire? or care for the Aussies/Brits/Dutch?

I for one haven't flown the p-51/Ta-152 yet, and almost never the Yak3 and LA7...But I can't recall how many hours have gone in a Mig3, I-16 or B-239....

Xanty -

I love the bipe's myself - Cr42 is my current steed. Scored my first online kill in an I16
love the rat.. anything with an open cockpit is good windy fun.

But when the Corsair comes?... I'll be bent for a looong time. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
I've said it before and I'll say it again.. the best thing about Il2 is diversity and assortment of aircraft to choose from.

These pages I post come from various issues of Naval Aviation News (previously BuAer Newsletter). Issues earlier than 1943 are not available, and much of the issues in 1943 were scant on pictures. Only in mid-1943 did the BuAer Newsletter go to a more traditional magazine type format. And later, the name changed to Naval Aviation news.

So, if my images deal with 1943 and later topics, now you know why.

I totally agree about the early war stuff. I guess that's why I fly for the FAF most of the time, where most of the fighters are early war.
