Problems with copyright laws with the manufacturers of the Original aircraft.

in other words, if we include them in the sim they want paid money.

The IL2 Sturmovik and He111 carry torps.

Beaufighter too.

No US planes tho thanks to Oleg getting shafted by a US plane company I think.

A-20 carries torpedoes so um thats a us plane if i'm not mistaken.
But still there isn't even one carrier based torpedo plane that flyable.

Yeah, we know. It's some BS law that says US planes, or likenesses of US planes and ships can only be put in games if royalties are paid, unless the game is made by Microsoft....

The Japanese torp planes aren't flyable because of insufficient data available on their cockpits, apparently. More's the pity.

Sigh! Haven't you paid attention to anything that's been posted on the subject? There is no law that said this, it was sheer bluster on the part of NG and Ubi/Maddox Games didn't call their bluff. No doubt they wanted to avoid the possibility of a court battle wherein only the lawyers would walk away with money. But there is no such law currently on the books.
