I seldom post here in this area but considering some of you might want some Navy B25's skins.

Here's a peek:

USMC used PBJ's from the USN. These skins are pretty good and beats using the USAAF scheme in USMC ops.

We Marines are a little averse to admitting our relationship to the Navy (no offense Squids!) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

Technically, as part of the Department of the Navy, the Marine Corps gets ALL it's stuff from the Navy, as well as hand-me-downs from the Army (Thanks Guys!).

But don't tell my drill instructor I told ya. He'd have a coronary...

And yes, they are OUTSTANDING skins. Semper Fi.

Actually Crash, I believe that the skin pictured above is that of a VMB squadron.

So THAT's why we can't entice you to come aboard Air Group 51?!! Heck son, we've got a couple of "former" seagoing bell hops on board already. You'd fit right in!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

lol, I didn't either until about a year ago. It's one of those obscure sidenotes to the war often overlooked which, in my opinion, fits very well into the whole "forgotten battles" theme. Right up there with the Tuskegee airmen and other units that didn't get a lot of recognition.

I was never much of a bomber fan until I started reading about the role of the B-25 in the PTO (and subsequently the SBD) and when I found out that the Marines had several PBJ and SBD squadrons I was hooked. For me, bombers bring a tactical element to the game that I really enjoy.

Not a lot of literature in print on the various PBJ units but there is a ton on the Web if you hunt around for it. I think www.vmb-613.com (http://www.vmb-613.com) would be a good place to start if you're interested.

And as for y'all, Razor, despite my prior service and the presence of a few undesirables, I would gladly enlist if I could make the time commitment. As it is I'm sitting in my hotel room spending yet another holiday away from my family wondering desperately how to Install PF on my laptop without our IT department finding out...

But I promise to stop by as often as I can. Your server rocks!

Awesome skins! I tried one out recently and when flying over a village somehow my engines and landing gear plopped off. I landed right on the shore so I just had to take a picture.

Thanks for the compliment guys.

VMB 613 is an excellent site, I had the privilege to correspond with the webmaster, as truly great gentleman. I had promised him about 2 months ago I'd finish VMB 613 so, after I wrap up my plate I'll hit the VMB-613 skins hard.

If you see me slacking off and not comming out with VMB-613 skins PM me and rattle my cage.

Fly them well boys!
