Aces High has yet to have a Betty. Maybe you are talking about the 67.

Also, with the end of the war, myth-making began, often by those who had never fought the Japanese, particularly during the first six months of the war when the IJNAF had seemed to be nearly invincible. In these myths, Japanese aircraft were held to be fragile toys and their crews were stooges. If that had been true, then the men who had beaten them--the Allied and American pilots and aviators--would have acquired little distinction in doing so. Indeed, one of the prime reasons for an accurate appraisal of the IJNAF today is to remember that it was once a formidable force and that the men who beat them were extraordinary in courage, competence and endurance.

All aircraft shown were used by the Japanese Army or Naval Air Groups during the war.
Maybe I'm missing something. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The Post-War Consequences and Myths
With the end of the war, substantial numbers of Japanese aircraft were left over, most of them in the Japanese Home Islands. A few of these were flown or shipped back to the United States for inspection, but almost all of them were burned and thus converted into scrap aluminum within days of the arrival of American troops. The Americans had quite enough experience with Japanese military airplanes during the preceding four years.

In the years immediately following the war, small numbers of Japanese warplanes were salvaged and flown by a number of forces or air forces in what had formerly been Japanese-occupied territory. Some of the IJAAF's "Oscars" survived in service in Thailand until the 1950s(Thailand had been an ally of Japan during the war) and a few Oscars were flown--over the complaints of their pilots--by the French in Indochina against the guerrillas there. Some similar machines were also used by the Nationalists and the Communists in the Chinese civil war from 1946 to 1949. As can be seen above, these airplanes had spent months or years parked beside their runways before this and that alone meant that they were not safe to fly without extensive refurbishing. In addition, there were no aviation mechanics with experience on these types nor were there any maintenance and repair manuals which the mechanics could read. The men who were forced to fly these salvaged machines did not like or trust them and it is easy to see why.

Great update! Always fun to see some Japanese planes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Did anyone else notice something different in the screenies? Look again, closer. Need a hint? How's this:
1) The spinning prop on the "Shiden" looks different, it's not a perfect disc but rather looks split into quadrants.
2) The Speedbar... Look at the Speedbar!!! It reads HDG xxx deg. Where's the ALT and SPD? Are we finally going to be able to select the variables shown in the Speedbar so we can fly full-real with just the HDG shown? That'd be a great compromise for the planes with hiddan compasses!

I know I might be jumping to conclusions, but I'll stay happy until it's being denied by someone on the team. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
