The only two i'm sure of are the short sunderland and the wellington bomber as they were big enough to carry the leigh light.

There may be others but i'm not sure.

This game goofed somewhat with the ASW aircraft. We are supposed to believe that the British used Hurricane fighters from land bases to hunt U-boats. The Sunderland was the mainstay of Coastal Command, until they were equipped with VLR Liberators. Another aircraft they used in numbers was the Lockheed Hudson; completely missing from this game. So sad.

Instead of the Hurricane it would have been more realistic if they'd modelled the Avro Anson for the early years of the war.

Yeah the Anson would have been nice for erly war, dispite that they were fairly usless.
Its ridiculouse the Hudson and venturas are missing, they were the most common ASW aircraft used by coastal command.
The mosquito and the beufighter are also major ommissions! They should be up there instad of the hurricane.
