I'm very hopeful but want more effective jap types hopefully in a later patch..........for a moment there I misread the A6M7 and thought it was the A7M. That would certainly be a good addition to even things up.......except they did not get a chance to use them.....Ho....Hummmm.

Great, one question:
Has the sidewindbug been fixed?
(If the wind blows at you from your left side, your nose will turn towards the right and not as it should be, your tail heading to the right, even more wrong when the same thing happens when you are on the ground in a taildragger)
