Is that the B-239 from FB? The B-239 would work well for Dutch or British scenerios in Malaya, etc.

But the only combat-operational use of the Brewster by US forces was by the US Marines at Midway. The Marines flew the F2A-3, which had signifcantly different dimensions than the B-239 (it had a longer nose, and didn't use the spinner).

It would be great to have both versions. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That's an F2A-3.

We're doing a LOT of work creating additional versions of existing FB aircraft. For half the effort of creating a new AI plane, we can create 2 or 3 sub-versions of an existing plane.

Trust me, I'd be put off more than most of you guys at seeing a P-39N in 1942, or a flight of B-17Gs landing at Pearl Harbor attacked by A6M2-11s http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Why would we have B-239s at Midway?

It just gets better and better!

BTW, we're drooling for more screen shots.

Wow! This is getting cooler and cooler everyday. I was pretty excited at the notion of what a Pacific sim with the FB style of attention to detail would be like but this is going to be great. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yes please - more screenies... How about a better look at the Essex class carrier.
Hornet? Midway? Enterprise?

And about those torpedo bombers.. any close screenshots yet ?

It may have been noted before but the islands the F2A-3 is flying over look an awful lot like photos I have seen of the Midway islands.
Am I right?

You win a cookie.

These little ocean maps like Midway, Wake, Iwo and such are a joy to make because you can litereally get every tree down to its historical location.

AVG pilots were at first jealous of nearby British pilots flying the B-239, believing the P-40 to be inferior. Chennault arranged a mock duel to quiet their fears.
