Which planes in IL-2 are Japaneese, specifically ones that would've been around when the P-38 was. Thanks

Anything A6M or Ki-**. Also the G4M* Betty bomber. I'm sure there's something I'm forgetting as well.

Ki-61 Hien too. They slugged it out with P-38's for sure.

Ki-43, Ki-61 and A6M were the most common P-38 fighter opponents.

The USAAF P-38J was assigned to the South Pacific theatre in 1942 (New guinea, Guadalcanal etc.)

The RAAF also flew them in this theatre later on.

As far as I know we never flew the fighter version.


75 sdn had some photo recon birds I was thinking of doing a skin of one of these day if someone like Kristof doesn't already have one out there ...

No 1 photo recon also had 3, they managed to trash two of them in landing accidents .. says a lot for giving photographers airplanes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The aircraft that the P-38 would have fought are ones just like the ones in this, the best P-38 track ever:

I have spent the majority of my time on and offline in the P-38, as you can probably tell.

The J model is the coolest in the sim because it takes the most skill to get results with....

I was heavily involved in the development of the P-38 for this sim, and I must say it has the best and most accurate flight model of all IL2 aircraft*




*My help in development was not with programming or modeling, but in whining about the aircrafts poor performance in this sim to gather support behind my fantasies for it enough until the real development team caved and let me have my dream so I would STFU.

This is half the method of development of any part of this sim, and I am honored to have been a part of it......
