I've heard that there will be several new Japanese planes in one of the upcoming add-ons. Just wondering if any of them will be flyable. Please everyone, I'm not trying to start a rant here, just asking. Anyone heard?

I'm stoked about the N1K-2J. That plane is a very serious contender! Automatic combat flaps and four 20mm cannons. Not the fastest fighter about but a very solid aircraft.

The Ki-27 is what I'm looking forward to. Something about Pre-1940 planes just calls to me...

I can hardly wait for the Ki-27 and the Ki-43-II. I can already hear the screams and moans coming from the people who tangle with the N1K. All the screaming about "wobbles" won't hold a candle.

i wouldnt expect too much from the N1K2-J , put it in the same leage as the ingame Ki-100.

very dangerous for the F6F , but can get trouble form a smart flown F4U . will be outperformed , sure not in horizontal turn, by USAAF fighters........

in the book "Gendas Blades" they even talk about that the Shiden-Kai had no rear pilot armour !
and if it will have a better view out of the pit than a J2M3 , well, remember the Fujijama behind the Ki-43-I pilothead or the "Berlin Wall" behind the Tempest pilot ! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Don't call it that stupid mate...they have given us patches 3.01 through 4.04 for free with new maps and content. Free. So paying a little money for some content I'm not opposed to. Nobody should after all that free stuff.

A download would probably be a little cheaper too?

I can't wait. I'll pay, and gladly. In fact I'd keep on paying for more if they keep on making more. Some people pay $20 per month for an MMO, I've been getting additional content and endless on and offline gameplay for YEARS without paying a cent. I think we're very lucky.

What Faelas said - I'd keep paying as long as the planes keep rolling off the line http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Personally, I€m dieing to see J2M5 flyable, it€s one of my favorite Japanese WWII planes. I know, know you may say that we already have J2M3, and it€s quite enough. But I am sure that in real life J2M5 was much more superior(in all aspects) than J2M3:
1) much more reliable high altitude engine with 3-stage supercharger
2) significantly higher speed on high altitudes
3) better view from cabin
4) the plane finally got rid of all defects that J2M3 suffered from
also, I want to mention that some J2M5s got a pair of powerful 30 mm type 5 cannons that were extremely effective against heavy bombers ( Hasegawa Hobby Kits firm produces J2M5 plastic model kit in 1/48 scale which includes traditional four 20 mm and optional two 20 mm type 99M1 and 30 mm type 5 cannon armament), I talked in more details about this issue in one of the previous discussions.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif Shame! The Ki-100 is an excellent aircraft!

The Ki 27 will pwnz all.

And when was the last time you saw a smart Corsair jockey? They all will turn eventually, be sure.

Which aircraft had the nickname Tenzan? I heard it was in the works is that one of the above or has it been lost to the island of misfit 3rd party models along with the P-61 and He-177?

The B6N2 is the Tenzan, it's a torpedo bomber. Going to be AI only.
