Well, the HMS Illustrious is in, and at least one King George V class vessel is there, and I would imagine a couple of others.

As far as aircraft go, the Seafire is in, and the Beaufighter is in. I don't know about other british aircraft, but most carriers in the BPF carried USA-ian aircraft like the Corsair so that doesn't seem too relevant.

What I would like to see though is the Aussie Commonwealth Aircraft CA-12 Boomerang fighter. That would be great to have as the only Australian made fighter aircraft of the war.

Reasonably certain that we'll see the Seafire Mk III, Spitfire Mk VIII, and the Beaufighter all as flyable aircraft.

Apparently also the Avenger Mk III was listed as a campaign according to one report. So thats a possibility.

Not a bad selection!

I can't wait to fly that Beau- banging along low level at 300mph with a stink load of bombs and rockets going after Japanese merchant shipping.

Think of it- charging towards the convoy thats growing ever larger in the windshield, the flak starts to streak by and the larger stuff bursts in front, pattering against the fuselarge. The Beau then starts to gently twist and turn, singling out a soon to be doomed merchant ship from its escort. Shortly a 10.000 tonne freighter is set firmly in the site, and the pilots finger hovers over the rockets, waiting for the optimum distance. FFFFWWWWWOOOOOMMMMFFFFFFFFF FFFFWWWWWOOOOOMMMMFFFFFFFFF FFFFWWWWWOOOOOMMMMFFFFFFFFF

A salvo is a lunched and the pilot breaks off as the Flak starts to zero in on him. Twisting and turning to make his escape he looks to see the freighter burning, explosions leap into the air. The pilot has just hit a 10.000 tonne bomb. Now he has to get well away before the thing goes sky high.


Was it the Omega squad that did the Beau? Are we in for any extra version? I only ask as i recal seeing a Beau fitted with Merlins as well as Hercules engines

No, no. Keep thy hair on. I meant the Boomerang, and I wasn't trolling on that either (well, maybe a little bit). http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif I don't know anything about this plane except someone's got it breasts up in their sig.

Is it a good plane? Did it see much combat? As the only Oz designed combat plane of WWII it certainly deserves to be in, but beyond that...what's it bringing to the party?

Not to mention the other planes from Il-2/FB/AEP that will also be available for the RAF, the Spitfires, Hurris, P-40s, etc. Oh, and the A-20.

Well, we know that the P-40 is already coming, along with a couple of other versions, notably the P-40B, so that's not really necessary to discuss that too much. But yeah, the P-40 was the great stalwart of the Pacific in the early years
