I know, I know, this could be a wee bit too early, but I wish these were in PF maybe in a future addon, as flyables:

Japanese Army/Navy:

Ki-27 "Nate"

ki-45 "Toryu"

SB2C Helldiver

F8F Bearcat

Reason? They were all in AOTP and the 1946 addon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I wish there was a Philippines map though, because those Nate's would be useless without a Philippines theater. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

This doesn't include more versions of stuff already in the game. I'd really like to see D3A2, Ki-43-II, Ki-61-II, P-47N, etc. flyable.

Of course I appreciate it takes a lot of friggin' time to make good models.

Nice lists. Pretty much you all have listed all that I would have suggested.

The P-35,P-43,P-66,CW-21,Wirraway,and Boomerang are also some that come to mind though.


I would also include more varients of the P-38,A-20,B-24,B-25 and P-40.

My list was short because it included what mattered to me most, and besides, if I posted a pic for every one of shootle's suggested a/c, I'd have a veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery long thread full of pics hehehehe.

You migth be wondering why I did post those pics though. I just did that so that one can attempt to visualize what these babies could look like in-game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Oh and some more that I forgot:

Kikka (Japanese version of the Me-262)

Baka, the suicide rocket bomb (like a manned V-1, I suppose hehe)

I totally agree with Snootles' aircraft suggestions. Some of these planes were included in the old Aces of the Pacific, including the Ki-27, the Ki-49, the Ki-45, J7W1 and, this would be a great add-on for PF, the Ki-83 (experimental heavy fighter).

The Ki-67 in its various versions (inc. torpedo bomber) would be very welcome too. I hope we see more Japanese aircraft in future patches, upgrades.

Thanks,

John Noory

I think were getting an Okha. Its actually mentioned in the manual in the mission building section.

I'd like to see:

Ki-100
Ki-44
Ki-45
Ki-61-II
and a couple of JAF bombers plus
TBD Devastator
SB2C Helldiver
Spitfire Vc (Trop)

Some stuff that we're missing is the utility aircraft. Couple of gliders, more transports, etc.

None of them are flyable...just for AI purposes. The FW-189, the Storch, and others from FB were great for mission building.

While the list mentioned are very comprehensive and include many of what I would like to see I just have only a few that are my wants. Most are Jap, as the choice in PF is poor

Mitsubishi Ki-67 Hiryu -
Best jap bomber of the war. Excellent torpedo platform, hvy defensive arms (5x12.7's and a dorsal 20mm), armour and self sealing fuel tanks. Used by both the Jap Navy and Army

Kawasaki Ki-45 Toryu - (How could they not have included this?)
Best Jap fighter/bomber of the war. Tough and well armed. Saw extensive service, very effective agasint libs and also used at night. Hvy armamaent(standard was a 20mm and a 37mm cannons + rear MG) - I really wanted to fly this one, it was my fav in AOTP, and is probably my fav Jap plane.


Ki44 - Is coming i believe, search Netwings.

hmmm come to think of it, just use the plane list from AOTP http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Ohka and Betty mothership have been submitted. At least as AI. TBD-1 as I have stated several times has been submitted as AI. Also, we have another Japanese twin engine in the works.
