[quote="Oizo"]For me, I hope to see B-26, A-26 and Helldiver as they are ones of the most produced and operational aircrafts during WW2 and still missing in the game[/quote]


Roger, that....+1! :D

Im going to stick all of your topics. As I believe these can provide in site to modders wanting to make a new aircraft. And then they can know whats being worked on.

I didn't see the F4U-4 listed and it definitely was in Combat in WW2. The Corsair MkIV is not the F4U-4 as some players think. The Corsair MkIV is the Goodyear built Version of the F4U-1D (FG-1D) made for the Royal Navy with "clipped" wings. The Corsair MkIII was the Brewster built version of the F4U-1D (F3A-1D) for the Royal Navy with "clipped" wings. The US was the sole operator of the F4U-4 and was made by Vought only.

While Tigercat, Bearcat was tested and flown in WW2 they did not see service in that conflict. Arrived too late! Nice aircraft none the less. The SBC Helldiver and B-26 Marauder are two of the main US aircraft of WW2 vintage that saw combat that are still missing. 8)

I think you forgot the Convair B-36 "Peacemaker", because the project started in the 30's and the first plane was delivered only a couple of days after WW2. The first real intercontinental (atomic)bomber and the biggest plane ever to carry a USAF star :wink:.

Only in wingspan as the C5A beats it in Length,height and empty weight. So can we really call it the biggest.

At least it's the greatest :wink:
This is an engineering masterpiece, absolutely top of the crop for it's time.
Just imagine the engines, 6 P&W Wasp Major means 168 cylinders with 336 valves and spark plugs :roll:

Best regards - Mike

Yes, at least until Convair came up with the hairbrained scheme of a nuclear powered version. I'm an A and P mechanic and cant imagine maintaining those 4360,s probably hundreds of hours of maintenance for every hour of flight time.

Re: List of USA planes flown in WW2 that arnt in the game

We have many pre war and early war planes but do not have the plane that flew in two of the early war carrier duels including arguably the most decisive naval engagement in history - Midway.

That would be the TBD-1 Devastator. This aircraft was slow and obsolete but it did participate successfully in the following 1942 missions:

Marshalls and Gilbert Raids Feb 42
Action off Rabaul Feb 42
Wake Raid Feb 42
Marcus [Minami Tori Shima] Raid Mar 42
Salamaua New Guinea Mar 42
Lae New Guinea Apr 42
Tulagi Raid Solomons May 42
Coral Sea [2 days] May 42

It would be nice to see this historic aircraft that paid the full measure at Midway [Jun 42]. In the meantime, the B5N Kate makes a suitable substitution with a TBD skin but it is disrespectful to those crews that died to fly a Japanese torpedo bomber [No disrespect intended to our Japanese shipmates].

Who's got a B-17? I can't find any.
