Very widely used seaplane in the early years, and flew on till the end of the war. Never truely replaced by the Kingfisher.

We should have this bird.

Wouldn`t it be nice if it could be launched off a catapult and recovered back to same ship
(obviously a pipe dream)
A nice plane to have but at the end of the day its a fixed float seaplane just like the OS2U.
And although i would fly it i find the lack of seaplane bases and or tenders anoying

why would we want this plane as a flyable as opposed to AI? what will it be able to do as a flyable?

Why, that's the svelte and handsome Curtiss Seamew.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think it's named after a Pokemon.
