well, a Singapoore map is propably comming soon .

IF not correct Brewster will be released beside , which one should fake the RAF B-339E and NL B-339C/D.

the B-239 ore the F2A-2 (actually the B-339 was export variants of that modell)

im more with the B-239:
it has a reflector sight (like B-339E), darker skin (F2A-2 looks like a Zeke-21, espacially with NL markings http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ) and slower speeds (the B-339E was much heavier than a USN F2A-2)

Use the B-239, with skins from Il2skins.com- there are two or three Commonwealth Buff skins that are historically correct.
Performance-wise, the B-339E was slower than the F2A-2 (and B-339C and D used by the KNIL) and had a poorer climb rate plus less manoeuverability. The B-239 was somewhat slower, but it is a better representation due to reflector gunsight (which should be similar to that in the Hurricane IIB for instance). Externally, though, the B-339E had a spinner similar to that of the F2A-2.
The F2A-2's speed has been corrected somewhat recently, it was originally the same as that of the B-239. It is now about 20-30 kph faster at 5,000 metres, but should be at least as fast as the A6M2- not slower as it is now.
