I was just wondering if the Corsair will be available in the configuration that the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm used them?? The ends of the wings were clipped by 6 inches mainly for storage purposes, but an added benefit was that the reduced wingspan also reduced the flare on landing, so made flying them from carriers (or rather, landing them on carriers) easier.

Anyone know if we'll get the clipped versions?

whit ye looking at, ya big jessie?!?!

A decent FAA paintscheme for Hellcat, Corsair and Avenger would be a good start IMO (just like the Bf 109 G-2 - check german stock skin and finnish stock skin).

In addition, the FAA corsairs, particularly the
FG1s were lighter by several hundred pounds. Look at the "Fighter conference of 1944" and the FG1 is lighter and has a lower wing loading than their F4U-1A cousins.
