aghh yes i want ohka http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

here some info about yokosuka mxy7 OHKA:


This small rocket powered aircraft was used by the Japanese navy at the end of WWII as a desperate means of attacking allied capital ships.

After release from the mother aircraft (a Mitsubishi G4M2e bomber)the rocket motor would ignite to give the vehicle a range of about 20 miles. The kamikazi pilot would then guide the plane, its nose ladden with high explosive, onto the target.

The weapon had only limited success. Because American Navy fighters patroled further than 20 miles away from any capital ship, the unwieldy mother ship/rocket plane combination proved a sitting duck for the American pilots.

There was a development update about 2 months ago with a couple screenshots of an Ohka. Oleg also stated with-in the last week that if you've seen it in a development update then you'll see it in the game. This would lead me to believe that you will see, at the very least, an AI Baka suicide bomb in one of the upcoming patches.

Having said that... many of the past PF dev. update screenshots have been removed. Click on the Dev. Updates link and you'll find that PF is thinly represented in the archives. What that means... probably nothing.
