Would be interesting to have an option similar to the AEP combo sets, of having a Betty WITH flyable Okha, especially if PF will incl. the possibility of effective Kamikaze mission profiles?

My own quote, from another thread:

"...But it isn't less true that the Ohka, the rocket-engined kamikaze plane was built, flown and used in combat -usually launched from a Betty- and this would be a very interestin add to PF, merging in one the emotions of FB/AEP's TB-3 SPB, Mistel and V-1. Not to mention the adrenaline shock it must be a mission trying to fly frantically to death against a running boat, amongst AA bursts, gun tracers and horrible buzzing sound..."

Fully agreed with all you pasted, especially since it will provide the only historically correct operational Pacific X-factor and a unique one for PF to boot.

The Cherry Blossom I feel would be great in the game ! It was in production and was going to be employed when the allies where close enough, launched from land cave bases. The Betty delivery system also would be neat but late war would have been hard to get to the target area.
PS they also had that helicoptor thing. A squadron went out for action on a very small carrior but it was sunk by a US sub. I pretty much got all of this from History Channel show last month suicide corps of Germany and Japan.

The quick falling Cherry blossom,
that lives but a day
and dies with destiny fulfilled

Is the brave spirit of Samurai youth
Always ready,
his fresh young strength
To offer to his Lord.

The Oka was used. Its first attempt was in March 1945..but the transports were intercepted so it failed. However, April 1st the Oka had some success, hitting the battleship West Virginia and three transports.

Well, it's not a secret that Luthier hates anything without a prop in the nose. He is the only guy in the development team who has a fan in the car instead of conditioned air. But, the Ohka was there, and they had to cope with it... and try to stop a suicidal rocket man has nothing to do with fighting against a BI-1. Nor being the suicidal rocket man yourself...
