I really don't want to be the first to start talking about a patch, butI guess there will most likely be one, or two http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/353.gif

. So I was hopeing the TBM-Avenger has a cockpit in the works. ?

The Betty will carry torpedoes, just make sure you don't smoke while flying it. It comes in the patch. The patch will be formally announced on Friday.

Would you prefer it if PF was delayed until the Avenger cockpit was completed?

I Thought SBDs could carry torpedos?? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif Why isn't there one in the arms menue???

Now I suppose I should be the one last to gripe about anything now that I have the B-25, but it does seem like the game needs torpedo bombers on both sides.

100% agree but does SBD carry torpedoes? Of course.
Does Val carry torpedoes? Well,not.Thus comparing those two is not a good thing if you ask me. That's what I meant.Anyway,no big deal. I bet there's a patch in work.That one should fix many things.And add some new things.

SBDs and Vals could not carry 1200-1700 lb torpedos-they were too long for them to fit under the center station.

A-20s and B-25s rarely carried torpedos if ever. Strafing and skip bombing was faster, safer and more fun. We need TBF/TBMs and Kates, followed by Judys, Jills, and SB2C Helldivers.

Sorry,moronic remark from me,SBD had no **** torpedoes as loadout. I should know better since I just finished one 1:72,darn. I was playing too much the Beaufighter I guess and mixing the two http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

yes but Val is an early war dive bomber with poor loadout....no serious threat to any of the carriers

Avenger, Kate is must have, and I would be delighted to have (flyable) Helldiver, Tenzan, Suisei and Ryusei.
