I guess everyone has their favorite-aircraft-that-isn't-flyable-yet requests, so I thought I'd mention mine: the H8K Emily.

I know it's a pipe dream, but wouldn't this be a great addition to a PF patch?

Here's why:
1) It was easily the best flying boat of WW2
2) We already have the exterior (AI version)
3) Great info is available on the interior. Aero Detail 21 has pics of the restored Emily at the Marine Museum in Tokyo
4) If we had an Emily, the IJN fans would shut up about not having a Betty http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
5) Five defensive 20mm cannon!!

Looks like a shoe-in to me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Any other flying boat fans out there?

I actually played a map someone made where there was a flyable Emily for launching torps on ships. It was pretty sweet.
