Here's more:

1.Give us flyable heavy bomber - I am always geting shot in dogfight. But flying a heavy bomber I will have a good excuse: this kind of aircraft can't dogfight at all.
2.Give us flyable heavy bomber (ver2) - I can't hit a fighter, but I want to get kills on-line. So if there will be a flyable bombers, I finally will have a large steady flying target with human pilot onboard! What a fun!
3.Give us a separate bombardier crewmember - I can't use that gizmous http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif bombsight, nor I can hit anything with it. But with a human bombardier I will have someone to blame finally!

I have a far simpler translator:

"You're whining because you don't like something the game isn't doing right"

Equals:

"I am a rabid PF/FB fan and therefore will shut my ears and scream if I hear anything I don't agree with."

Sometimes the complaints toward FB are pretty trivial/untrue. But so many of them are downright valid--muzzle flash comes to mind. It's one thing to be a fan and support FB/PF, it's another to lash out at others and pretend like those issues don't exist. They do, and until they get resolved people have a valid reason for voicing the concern--especially since the franchise prides itself for unprecedented realism.

Yes, the size of the MK 108 muzzle flashes would lead one to believe they were grenade launchers that kept misfiring. The fireball from the NS-45 cannon looks like it should instantly consume and destroy that poor little Yak wielding it.

IIRC, the B5N is flyable, its the later versions of the kate that are not.

According to UbiRazz the B5N Kate is AI only.

I hate to be a buzz-kill here, but none of the Japanese carriers were sunk by torpedoes. Thank the SBD jockeys for that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Those late war PF servers may have very short lists of volunteers for the Japanese side huh?

Maj_Death

Maybe so, but it was those unescorted TBD's that screwed up their cap allowing the SBD's to bomb the carriers virtually unopposed. And dispite the TBD's less than steller record, it did do its job reasonably well all things considered.

Edit: one more thing, I know your servers fill up pretty quick but that is mostly because they are stable, have people in them and the maps don't totally suck *ss. Also there is the Ki-84 on the japanese side, but it would be nice if we had more than one latewar fighter to choose from. How would you like it if the only allied latewar fighter in AEP was the Yak-9 series? I doubt too many people would be pleased with that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
