B5N Kate, B6N Jill and TBD Devastator, TBM Avenger will be flyable in PF?

Only TBM Avenger will be flyable in my information :-(

The Kate will be in, it is a safe bet, but the other types you mention will have very low odds to appear as flyables.

All IMHO...

So B5N, TBF/TBM are going to be flyable right off? But TBD and B6N will not be? (They will at least be AI, right?)

How do you do the Early Carrier Raids, Battle of Coral Sea, and Battle of Midway without the TBD? How do you do Philippine Sea without the B6N?

If they give us everything we want the first time there is no room to make more money off addons.

The TBD will not be flyable (ever), but it will be AI. That has been stated time and again. It's a matter of detail cockpit and FM data that is missing (mostly the latter from what I've read in here).

Dunno about the Jill, not at the start, and flyable would require detailed cockpit and FM data.

Not all aircraft have been added in paid add-ons, BTW, many have appeared in free patches.

Well, I don't have the time to visit these forums more than once every week or two, so I miss alot.

You sure the Devestator will not be flyable? This post http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=26310365&m=684107195&r=331102026#331102026 is somewhat ambiguous on the subject.

Anyway, the whole point of Pacific Fighters in my mind(besides the carrier landings) is the torpedo bomber campaign. Sort of ruins the game before it gets started to leave such an important plane as the Devestator AI only. Not enough cockpit and FM data my foot. There are almost enough photos of the TBD cockpit in the Squadron/Signal TBD Devestator in Action alone to draw up a cockpit, and their has got to be as much FM data on the TBD as there is on, say, the B-1, I-185, or Go-229.

Sorry, not flaming anyone in particular, but to hear that my absolute favorite bomber of all time will not be flyable in the one sim where it had a chance, well that is just depressing.
