Oleg plz, before you release the new flyable Buffalo, remember to give her a proper default skin.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The current dirty white is terrible.... Plz, add a medium blue for the US planes and a green/brown camo for the RAF planes. I'm sure many talent skinners here would be very happy to give you good skins to be default.

Thx again and again for this wonderful game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Why are we getting a F2A-2? Few were in service with the USN/USMC at the beginning of the war, and none saw combat. The only F2A that saw combat in American hands was the F2A-3.

wondering also for a long time. but it is on line with the last 3 years - planes without maps ore actualy saw no combat at all.

porpably they wanted to use the F2A-2 as basis for future B-339s http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well, the plane IS in the game as AI, with a blanc skin. AFAK, this bird is going to be flyable in the next add on, with the flyable Betty and flyable KI-100, and i'll love to have the Buffalo, as i'll love any other WWII plane to be insert in the game.

I'm just asking for a proper skin.

SkyChimp I think the F2-A2 was the same model that the Brits and Dutch flew against the forces of Japan. (Only given a different designation)

B-339, but it didn't have any of the Navy equipment (telescope sight, tail hook, life raft, etc.)

I've wondered the same thing. It seems to me that a F2A-3 would've made more sense, but maybe I'm missing something.

there are still a lot of differences betwenn a F2A-2 and the British and Dutch B-339s
Engines , weight = performance
weapons
equipment,cockpit

I think you're missing the basic fact that the F2A-3 participated in only one major action during the war. That was in Marine service at Midway. The flew just one day and suffered heavy losses.

RAF and Dutch Buffaloes saw much more extensive combat service over a much longer period of time.

F2A-2 is NOT identical with B-339s !
sure , they have the dsame short fuselage and large spinner of the F2A-2 , but thats it.

have a look here

http://www.warbirdforum.com/britdifs.htm

also, the Buffalo Mk.I was ~900pounds (!) heavier than the US navy plane. that reduced the over all performance.

ore the Dutch Brewster had .303cal MG in fusealge, not .50cal

The only use of the F2A-3 in aerial combat in WWII was in the hands of US Marines at Midway. True enough. But F2A-3s nevertheless were part of our Naval air arm in the first months of the war. VF-2 on USS Lexington was equipped with the F2A-3 for the first months of the war. Fighting Two participated in attacking a Japanese submarine, I-18, filling her full of holes on 10 Janaury 1942.

ill photo the bufflow profile jobby i got.

tbh, one with a hook would be nice, and a english/dutch one if possible. there was field mods to try and make it better vs zero aswell
