I presume that you mean flyable since the Ar-196 A-3 is already in the game as AI?

I do not recall flying one of these in the game. The Japanese float plane yes but not these. Are the in there as AI?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I started to get seasick just watching the video but then I started laughing so hard I forgot about being seasick.

They sure didn't score high on the dismount but, considering the conditions, I'd give them a pass.

As you can see the two pontoon plane faired better than the single pontoon with the wing floats.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

That was soo funny. Starts out pretty boring but soon escalates into some classic slapstic.

For the longest time, I never understood how the propellor hub gun mechanism worked in planes like the bf 109. Like many people, I assumed that the gun somehow shot through the driveshaft, but this is not the case. Anyway, I was recently at the Museo del Aire at Cuatro Vientos in Madrid where they have a DB 601 engine with sections cutout so you can see the inner workings. In these photos, you can clearly see how the the pistons drive the bottom gear. The large top gear drives the prop shaft which is hollow. Thus, a gun can be mounted between the cylinders and fire through the prop shaft.

That was CLAAAAHSICK!!!!! Man I was watching and thinking, "man he got it down, but I don't think he's gonna get that thing up in those waves..." and WHAM there goes prop, engine and the whole Magilla... I was stunned already but when the sucker caught fire and these guys are bailing for their lives... Oh brother I lost it.

Thanks for that man best laugh I had all week.

I watched it again and yeah it is darn funny. It would be a good caption video. I did notice the first plane was throttled up to max and this probably did it in. The second plane the throttle was eased up slowly and I think that help him get it out of the water. The two pontoons probably helped keep the nose up and out of water.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Sure it would be funny. Long as they both got out alive, it's hilarious. Notthing hurt but their pride and one float plane. Do you really think most American's are THAT jingoistic that we couldn't laugh at ourselves?

Alright men, caption the video. Have fun with it!

Here is mine:
