A request NOT to model an airplane.

Oh, I dunno. The Barracuda was pretty ugly, but I like the "cr@p" planes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hey, it's not that Barracuda is cr@p or anything. Just face it, pick an attack plane career and you are history. If the CAP doesn't get you the flak will. And if the flak doesn't blow you out of the sky, then trying to land your wounded bird on the heaving carrier will do you in. Of course the end comes even faster in the ***apanese navy as Allied flak is heavier and your plane is more vulnerable.

Barracuda or not, you will lose http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I wouldn't call the Barracuda a **** plane, as it was pretty successful in Europe and in the Pacific. It was equally good at dive bombing and torpedo attacks, which it makes it unique among WWII aircraft. I think the U.K. built something like 1600 of them, so it was built in significant numbers for an attack plane. It would be a nice addition to both PF and FB, but I doubt we'll see it.

When I say a cr@p plane, I don't necessarily mean that the plane was bad, but perhaps just not as well known or in the spotlight as often as other planes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Dunno, could be worse, the Barracuda was not popular with its crews but they could give you a Curtis Helldiver which was really awful, or maybe the one described as the greatest waste of human endeavour ..... Vultee Vengeance?

Gee... I think that is lovely air-floating piece. Really. IMO include if possible. For sure lovely comparing to some FB mosters like 109Z, or BI1. Wise folks in Roman Empire was bublling something about "if we have some number of man, we have equal number of tastes". However I cannot translate it correctly. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

To me it slightly has a Stuka "look" about it, which I like since I'm a fan of the ol Ju-87. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

A question though: Did the wing spar go through the cockpit? Looking at the wing positions, it sure looks like it would've. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

The Barracuda was originally designed to take the Rolls-Royce Vulture engine(2000Hp) but when that failed they fitted the Merlin(1600Hp), Max.Speed was 228mph (367kph). I think this is were its problems started. Later versions had the R-R GriffonVIII.
