Just putting food for thought out there. The Beaufort flew extensively in the pacific with the RAAF who produced nearly a thousand of these which were used for anti shipping strikes and low level ground attack as well as many other roles. Anyone thought of looking at this beatiful beast for PF???
With the Beaufighter already confirmed this light bomber could be great in this sim!!!!

Would be nice.

On a sad note here is an interesting link about a Beaufort misshap in 1943 complete with terrible (but interesting nontheless) video.

I'm with you Pappy, I just love the big twins. To me something like the Lightning is a boring twin, I like 'em big and robust like the Beaufort, Mossie and my personal fave- the Ju88. While not in PF it will be a blast to fly the 88 in either IL2FBAces or BoB. A big bump on the Beaufort my friend, you have good taste in aircraft <ggg.> All the best, LongHorn
