Is there a fix in the works to put the landing gear on the PBY so we can used it as land-based?

that's Gib's area. you'd need a PBY-5a, instead of the PBN that's in the game now

The Catalina in the game right now is not a PBY, it's a PBN. That's why it has no wheels.

PBY = amphibian
PBN = flying boat

You can still park 'em on the ground as static aircraft and they look nice http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

PBY-5's and older where flying boats, the PBY didn't become an amphibian until the 5A model

I stand corrected, thanks Thrud!

Still learning about what the different model codes meant. http://www.uswarplanes.net/catalina.htm has some interesting figures.

I just made a dog fight map using the Gulf of Finland.It has 2 water bases.I have all the AI float planes based there.They spawn in the water and are flyable(from external).I load them up with bombs and attack the channel shipping.
