Try as I might I haven't been able to get either of these birds up off the deck in the single missions file. Neither, it seems, can the AI. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Can anyone out there do it? If so can you lend me your secrets.

I'm not really that suprised at the F6F though, the mission has you taking off with 2 500lbrs, a droptank and rockets!

I just got myself "carrier qualified" (6 traps in a row) on the Seafire, Hellcat, Corsair, Zero and the Val. I'm itching to see if anyone can get the FM-2 or a F4F-3/4 off a static carrier.

<span class="ev_code_RED">CAN IT BE DONE?</span>

Dont know, whatever the default is for the single mission file.

Check it out, do some runs. I'd love to be proved wrong.

and btw about the AI.
not tested it, why should i anyway.
if there are AI planes its a single mission ore COOP. and then the carrier should move , like they did in real !

Right did some testing;

FMB; Crimea: Miday, no weather.

Findings:

US carrier Generic/ US Lexington

F4F-3/4 can take off with 100% fuel,
FM-2 can take off with 100% fuel
F6F-3 can take off with 100% fuel

US CVE

F4F-3/4 can Take off with 75% or less fuel.
FM-2 can take off with 15% or less fuel
F6F-3 Could not take off, even with 1% fuel


So, the Hellcat cannot take off from a stationary jeep carrier and the FM-2 can only take off with minimal fuel.

Does any know if this is right?

possibility of launching a Hellcat from a stationary jeepcarrier - i heavily doubt it.
even with with wind and catapult.

Cool, happy now.

I might just email the Bug report (though i'm loathe to do it at the moment) and try and get them to give the FM-2 less fuel, the Hellcat less bombs and them both a bigger carrier!
