Hi from Heraklion Crete in Greece.
I am new here and i just want to know if there is any patch to make Japanese B6N2 plane flyable in IL2 Sturmovik 1946?
As i saw into the game the B6N2 is the the unique fighter which can transport torpedo.

Nope. Very unlikely to see it become flyable.

Its not really unique however...the B5N, B6N, TBM, TBF, and other AI planes can carry torpedoes. Player flyable torpedo aircraft include the Beaufighter Mark 21, A-20C and G, G4M, Heinkel He-111 and IL-2T.

heinkel He-111, A-20C are bombers.

The B6N is not a fighter

I think the modeler of the B6N external model tried to make the cockpit,
but had to stop because of lack of references.

Well find out then. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

The Il-2T is a torpedo version of the Sturmovik, you know the plane that started the series. Beaufighter is a twin attack plane and heavy fighter, and the G4M the Japanese Betty bomber.

As for the Ai planes, as harry said, B6N (and B5N) are not fighters but single engine attack planes, like the TBF Avenger.

The B6N and B5N are also bombers....

Neither of them have any forward firing armament of any type.

I believed that B6N2 was a fighter because it seemed like A6M2 Mitchubishi Zero.

I do not think that alot of fighters are burdened down with a torpedo and a crew of three. So, it must be a bomber. Here is a bit more info on the aircraft.

Well, its larger and heavier, it has a crew of three, no forward armament, a bombsight, a torpedosight, two rear gun stations to protect above and below the aircraft, and so forth. The B6N and its predecessor the B5N were very capable aircraft for hauling torpedoes or bombloads over long distances and both tended to outclass their American counterparts as far as range was concerned.

Neither could ever be considered a fighter and by the end of the war they were sitting ducks for American fighters that had gotten more powerful, better armed, faster, more numerous not to mention sporting some of the best trained pilots at the time.

Welcome to the forum by the way. Beware prolonged exposure may lead to unwanted harm

I gave him lots of references -only lacking for the radio seat. I don't think it was because of that. I bet it was for the same reason they didn't put the B5N: doing so required to balance with flyable US torpedo bombers.
