Just got Pacific Fighters and can not find the A20's. Are'nt they supposed to be on here or is there a campaign I might not have?

If you click on B25 when on this menu you can choose the A20 campaign:-

Interesting. The above pic shows: New Guinea, July 1942 and both available planes for the campaign are 1943 and 1944 variants.

I've flown them both, like them, but never noticed this before.

That's a very good point. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Actully the A-20 G was operational from early 1942, but the early stock went to USSR under lend-lease. They were identical to the ones used by USAAF, exept they had two of the .50cals replaced by 20mm canon!
I messed with my DGen to make the A-20 flyable from 1942 onwards in the Sturmovik campaign. You should all try it, it makes one hell of a campaign! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Finkeren, during your campaigns was there a problem with your AI A-20s being unable to land properly at some airfields?

My 1944 eastern front B-25 and A-20 campaigns are downloadable here (http://forums.ubi.com/ubb.x?a=tpc&s=400102&f=23110283&m=5911021782)

No I never experienced that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
There were a few incidents in the Kuban campaigns where the AI would fly themselves straight into a mountain, but I just altered the mission file in question to make them fly 500m higher.
The A-20 is an incredible AC. On one occation I was flying as leader of the second flight, my wingman was caught by the flak and had his right engine blown off together with is right elevator and is rudder!
He trailed behind the rest of us, when he was attacked by a lone FW 190 (yes I play with externals on http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif) He shot down the FW and reurned to base, and landed with no trouble just a few minutes after the rest of us!
One hell of a flight!

I think the dates on the aircraft might be suspect, but their dates of historical use seem to be within tolerable limits ^_^

For example, the Beaufighter Mk21 is listed as 1944 - is that accurate? It might be for that model, I couldn't say without checking it up - but then if MG was only going to include a New Guinea 42 campaign for beaufighters, why'd they approve the inclusion of a late model instead of an early one?
