One small request for inclusion in PF.
Light AAA for transport shipping. Not too much, just a couple of .50 cal or 20 mm guns, especially on the US ships.
It always seems wrong (and IS wrong) when you are attacking transports and they put up no fight at all.
You would also need this to properly recreate one of the most famous G4M missions when about 18 Bettys made torpedo attacks on the transports of the Guadalcanal invasion fleet. Several of the low flying Bettys were lost to 20mm fire from the transports.

This would be a exciting mission for the flyable??? Betty but one which would be very difficult to survive. It could well be the first single mission campaign!

If this has already been taken care of, thanks in advance.
