Very simple request as a future buyer of this Pacific war sim. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Would it be possible to have also the CV-2 in its "war config", with square front deck, simplified structures on main chimney and dark livery?

Lexington only lasted to Coral Sea, and that was what? May of '42? I think Saratoga was the same class, though with some changes...

cheers

There isn't a lot of reference for the version of the boat in the photo there.

Just that picture and a few others, but no schematics or color pics.

Here is a pic of the Saratoga with the more pointed flight deck. I'm frankly not sure that the PF one isn't already squared off.

Here's the Lex:

I also noticed that the screenshot shows the ship with "L E X" written on the aft end of the flight deck. I know the USN did that for all its carriers prewar, but didn't they get rid of the letters once the war started?

I wonder if Saratoga will have to go around with L E X on her deck in the game too.

You are right. It would take months, no, years to change that one part of the texture http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm guessing they'll be dressing up the carriers in all manner of skins.

When Lexington went down at 1942 it had absolutely different fit and painscheme.
There are a LOT of reference on that.
First of all, the 203mm turrets were removed and replaced with quadruple 28mm AA. The superstructure changed a little (not as much as on the Saratoga though). The paint scheme was "Measure 11", wich basically was dark blue-grey overall with natural wood deck.

So, in the end, will we get a "war" variant or not?

Good eye, but this has been brought up before, after Pearl both the Sara and the Lex landed their 8" tubes on Oahu (to be used as coastal defense guns) and replaced them with the venarable 5"38. Probably the best dual purpose gun of the war along with the German 88. I REALLY hope Oleg allows skinners to do the Carriers like they can do the aircraft now, that would be something. All the best, LongHorn

4 turrets with two 5"38 in each were installed on the Saratoga only. Besides that, the funnel was shortened, the armoured conning tower was removed and forward superstructure rebuilt.

The Lexington didn't change much in appearence. The most noticable change was replacement of the 203mm turrets with 28mm quad mounts.

So, in 1942 this ships looked quite differently.
