The rockets seem to change shape, size and colour after release? They look more like A2A missiles than unguided rockets from their trajectory.

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

ELEM, they're different rockets... Look at the first shot! The ones on the fuselage pylons are twice the size of the wing mounted ones!

Anyone know exactly what these bad boys are? Never seen rockets that big on a WWII fighter before. C'mon SkyChimp or someone, spill the beans.

I am not expert but my guess would be Tiny Tims, I believe they were going to be modeled

Yup all looks great and will be first inline for the game.

Anyone know how many planes are allowed on one carrier, things like spawning on carrier if its a selected homebase etc.

Ah! yes. I didn't look at that picky. It's all clear now. Yes, they are Tiny Tims. What fooled me was the shot from underneath where 2 of the wing rockets are missing. I thought they had come from there. Obviously the TT's have to drop below the propellor disc before they ignite which explains the trajectory.

Any one got a photo of a Corsair carrying 2 of these? I've only found references to one being carried on a centre pylon.

If this was in reply to my request, I already found these. Corsair only has one mounted centrally in these pics.

People who are new to this game and see those pictures think; 'that looks ****!' I don't think I will bother buying it. It's so easy to turn on 4x AA and then make your screenshots.
