Hi all,

Yep, first US ace on this theater and... on Soviet aircrafts!

Story here:

Perhaps an idea for another "Forgotten Battle" (many aircrafts involved in this war are already modeled).

Cheers,

Would be a good scenario, and I would like the i152 if its flight model couldnt hold up against late war planes. Seems most of the modelers are going for late 45-46 planes

I rather it be the older a/c props fit in fb much better

Yep, there were some very cool and rare aircrafts there fighting against the Japanese.

Some very pretty little Breda fighters, French mercenaries on Dewoitine 510, Curtiss Hawk biplane (love this aircraft), Vultee attack aircrafts etc...

I think also the Chinese scenery should be very pretty to see. I'm thinking of the ambiance of this movie with Steve MacQueeen on the Yang-Tsé-Kiang /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The Chinese even used early variants of the He-111 and also Tupolev TB-3!

Cheers,
