Look at those killer rockets on that F4U!

And check out the water in the bottom right of the Lexington image. Does that look real or what http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

BTW, there are model numbers for both the Corsair and the Avenger, but not for the Hellcat. Have they just forgotten or haven't they decided which model it's going to be?

Yes, there are Tiny Tims rockets.

Btw, I didn't know they were used operationnally on the Corsair during WWII, rather on B-25, A-20 and perhaps Helldiver, and Corsair also, but on the F4U-5 variant in Korea.

Avenger looks great. And the water is sonething else, indeed.

But I'd like to see what they have done for the Yorktown Class carriers.

Who cares? It's gonna be sweet, if someone makes an Invasion of Japan campaign, I'm sure they'll be used. The images look freaking awesome, I love that water, although my video card doesn'thttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Thanks Razz

cool screen shots.

What were the two rockets on the Corsair used for. I'm guessing anti-ship, they look like they are about the same size as a harpoon. Anyone know anything about these?

I know for a fact they were at least TESTED on F4U's. Not sure about combat. I am trying to find out if the Tiny Tims were used in combat at all. From what I have found out, only 2 carriers were equipped with them in 45.

I want that Helldiver http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I really hope its flyable soon after release if not in release. I never knew that they had rockets like those...must make a heck of a wallop when they hit!
