Since Maddox is creating a Pacific sim for us, i hope they will include a "Destruction of Force Z" mission as a single mission in the game! G3M Nells and G4M Bettys sinking the battleship Prince of Wales and the old battlecruiser Repulse outside the coast of Kuantan in Malaya (3 days after Pearl Harbor)!! And British Brewster F2A Buffalo‚¬īs trying to shot down some of the Bettys... That would be kool... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Since the RAF failed to cover Force Z in reality, it would require at least one of the Japanese bomber types to be flyable create a realistic scenario. Hopefully the Betty will be flyable in the initial release (the series doesn't have a good record for flyable multi-engine a/c).

OTOH, you'd need to find people willing to model two capital ships with a very limited role in the game.

Never the less an interesting request http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I actualy recently created a Historic Series of Pacific Missions using FB /AEP, which utilises a Pacific Skin Pack.
Mission number 2 is the Destruction of Force Z, and we turned it into a what if Scenario, we where able to do this because a Group of RAF Brewsters did actualy fly over the scene just after Prince of Wales and Repulse sank.

In our Scenario the Brewsters arrive over the British Capitol ships as the Japanese attacked.
The RAF Maylaya Skin created by Ian Boys is perfect in this Scenario, plus Texs Betty Bomber skin.
There actualy 9 other Pacific Missions in the pack.
If you are interested in trying them, go to the Net Wings Down load area for Missions and then for Skins for Il-2, Look for Empire of the Sun , or our own web site, which explains it all at

To be honest, we immediatly stopped work on the Empire of the Sun Series when we found out Pacific fighters was being created.
Mainly because I would rather build Historic Missions from a Pacific Sim, instead of trying to immitate the Pacific in FB.
Mind you a few people have said we did a pretty fair job of immitating the Pacific in FB.

Yea I reckon the Destruction of Force Z is a great Idea.
Even if it does not come as a Mission in Pacific fighters, we will still re create the Mission in PF.

Cheers

PS Just read your Post Luthier, hmmm Force Z eh! that will be nice as a stock mission in PF

Maybe we've learned to take them with a certain reserve http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Though I'd be happy to scan what I have on both ships!

Guess the Betty has been fully covered already?
