Just curious but will all the planes have open-able conopies or just the naval. I thought that I read in a previous post that it is only intended for naval planes. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Only the new carrier aircraft, like the Wildcat and Hellcat, will have the ability to open the canopy and raise the seat.

THX, http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif but what I mean is like the A-20 or the p-40B and C and the new army air corps planes.

I was under the impression that ALL new planes would have this feature... maybe not the larger bombers though.

I guess I'll find out tomorrow http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yellonet, here's Oleg's info on Canopies.

Open / Close Canopy: This feature is mainly designed for carrier ops. It will decrease your airspeed somewhat and is not recommended for combat.
It is ONLY available in some of the new planes that shipped with Pacific Fighters. It is NOT available on older planes that were built for Forgotten Battles, Ace Expansion Pack or our older games.

And to go along with the canopy info, Change Seat Position: this key toggles the pilot’s seat height between two presets: high and low. This feature is intended for use during take-offs and landing to help look over the aircraft’s nose. High position should not be used in combat as it prevents you from using your gunsight. You must open your canopy first before raising your seat.
This function ONLY works on the A6M Zero, F4U Corsairs and F4F/FM Wildcat series of planes. All other planes did not have seat systems that could be controlled by pilot in-flight.
