View Full Version : patch and aircraft

Why is it that the KI-100 has made the game?
I'm not whinning, but just wondering.

My resource book state that production for the following aircraft was:
KI-100: 389....271 KO, 118 Otsu
P-51H: 555

The P-47N saw far more combat than either other AC. But then again so did the F4U-4. The Meteor saw more service than the P-80. Shall I say YP-80, same as GO-229.

Am I miss something here? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Production numbers are not a big factor in choosing planes, I suppose.

Especially 3rd party ones. People will model what they like. Bi-1, Go-229, YP-80 were 3rd party, among many others. People deliberately make planes that are exotic, rather than the same old.

Ease of modeling, reference information, and luck have more to do with what is finished. I remember someone was making a P-47N, but for whatever reason, it didn't pan out.
