Is anyone else upset at the fact that we can't actually fly any transport planes in Pacific Fighters? You can set them as friendlies or enemies, but you can't fly them! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif It would be so cool to be able to fly the C-47!

So does anyone know of a mod that'll allow that?

Kramer,

There are "mods" that will allow you to fly the C-47. Google "IL2 Mods" and you should be able to find what you seek.

It's not that cool. You're flying a slow, non-maneuverable, unarmed can of gas. I suppose if you got hit and caught fire it would start getting exciting real quick.

Actually I find it kind of fun flying in formation with other large aircraft, wading through tons of flak.

Then again I'm just weird like that, so yeah.

+1....its a nice break sometimes...Imagine what those real pilots went thru dropping paratroopers....Was in one mission where you can drop supplies to friendly troops..I didnt think mine was armed with anything until i saw bails of something coming out.

wait until we release the New Guniea- New Britan map. many airfields are bush type strips cut into the Mtn side with 10% grades. there are no go arounds on these strips with a C-47. we built the Wau airstip per specs (as we do on all our fields) one end is 300ft higher than the other.

Yeah!! The whole point of simulator games like this is to put yourself in the shoes of these pilots... Including those of the C-47! Thanks Sillius_Sodus, I'll look for mods right away. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
