I'll be honest, I can't make missions worth squat. But it'd be cool to see a designer make a mission, and set all the planes and objects in the right places, for a shoot down Yamamoto mission. After all, it was one of the most important missions of the Pacific War.

I know u can put the right aircraft in Quick mission, but for them to be set up right, is a different story.

We haven't the maps for what you are seeking in the way of a Yamamoto shootdown mission.

IIRC, Yamamoto's betty was downed over Kahili drome on Bougainville. This map doesn't exist (and probably never will, now) in PF.
Many of us were sorely disappointed when this was realized.

Sorry.

It's true we don't have the maps (yet, maybe).

But that hasn't stopped mission-makers in the past - after all we got a BoB campaign using the Gulf of Finland for the channel. I enjoyed that one immensely, despite the only semi-real location.

Head on over to Netwings, I've seen a 'Down Yamamoto' mission in the Pacific Fighters/Mission archive.

I made a coop; I'm just waiting for the flyable Betty before uploading it.
We flew it once as is, it seemed to work ok.

Cheers!

Missing maps is only one of the problems.

The fact that the AI are so inept is a much bigger problem.

Just try setting waypoints for several P-38s at 15 meters. You will watch almost everyone one of them fly into the water or each other and there will be none left in a very few minutes.

The odd behavior of the AI makes it impossible to have AI P-38s flying at the 50' altitude Major Mitchel and his flight flew.

Yeah the trouble is definately that we lack the P-38F and the map to do the mission proper historical justice.

Subbing in the P-38J works....I guess we could do it on the Guadacanal map. I may just go ahead and do that...at least we'd have something http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I did one using the Marianas map but didn't bother with any ground units. Just P-38s, Bettys and A6M2s.

Air starts for all (due to the lack of geography) and the different legs of the P-38s' flight aren't excatly right but probably close enough since the geography is fantasy as well. Also, the altitude the P-38s fly is pure fantasy due to the fact that the AI is so screwed up.

I made a Yamamoto mission. I used the Guadalcanal map from Lunga Pt.,Henderson Field (due to map restrictions) to a make shift airfield on Tulagi Is,(instead of Bougainville) off of the Florida Is.

I used the 16 P-38J's at a low alt to intercept multiple A6M2's and 2 G4M1-11's.

It's obviously alot shorter then the actual mission but then again peeps online get inpatient when there's not quick action.

Mission functions well, if anyone is interested contact me here in forum.

Name Yamamoto Shoot-down ver 4
Short U.S. Naval Intelligence has learned that Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto is flying into Bougainville at exactly 0800 hrs.\n\nUS side - you have one chance to get him - do so at ALL costs\n\nYour planes are LOW... pull up immediately!\n\nJapan Side - Protect our Commander-in-chief. \nYour Honor depends upon it.\n
Description Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, is the architect of Pearl Harbor and Japan's most talented and revered war leader.\n\nU.S. Naval intelligence has learned that Admiral Yamamoto is flying to Bougainville, in a "Betty" twin-engined bomber. He will be escorted by 6 Zero fighters and is due to arrive on 18 April, 1943 at 0800 hrs and leave by Sub-chaser at 0840 hrs.\n\nAdmiral Yamamoto is punctual to a fault.\n\nThe U.S. Army Air Corp is sending 16 aircraft to intercept.\n\nThe Japanese have 6 Reisen's [zero] as escort and up to 50 Reisen fighters within minutes of Bougainville, so strike hard and strike fast.\n
