Well, if that beauty is going on your wish list than these go up there first:

F8F Bearcat
P61 Black Widow
torpedo planes
rest of the carriers
battleships
nuclear weapons

(If I'm not mistaken, wasn't one of the later Corsairs rated to carry FatBoys? I dunno, maybe I'm wrong about that... But it would be kind of an interesting loadout option though... One under each wing! -- You know, for working over runways, ammo dumps, and the occasional target of opportunity.)

The Tigercat and Bearcat didn't fly operationally during WW2. Not even sure why the P61 should go in there considering how limited its use was.

I'd rather see time and money spent on planes that saw combat and made a difference rather than very late war or post war fantasy planes.

Would much rather have those missing aircraft that participated in the early and middle years of the war along with a correct selection of BBs.
sorry but for me KGV class BBs on battleship row at Pearl Harbor is a real turn off.
Can't imagine what oleg was thinking and can only hope this will be addressed in a future patch.

Avenger, Kate, Nate, Claude, Helldiver, Ventura, Harpoon, Devastator, Ki-100, George, Raiden, A-26, P-47N, early P-38s then I would be happy to have fantasy planes.

I agree with the last poster. Give us early and mid-war planes first.

But for goodness sake, no-one reads this forum and decides what planes to model next!

I saw the Tigercat (Big Bossman) race in the unlimited class, this year at Reno. Totally insane, I had to change my shorts when it passed the grandstand all out, the sound was incredible http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Would love to see this plane simulated...

AD Skyraider? Didn't enter full carrier service until 1947. The B-36 began entering service in 1948, but it had so many fire control problems it was a few years before they were really operational.

You want to know what "what-if" planes I would support?

A7M Reppu "Sam"
B-32 Dominator
BTD Destroyer
Buckingham
F7F Tigercat
F8F Bearcat
Firebrand
G8N Renzan "Rita"
Hornet
Ki-108 "Randy"?
Lincoln
P-80 Shooting Star (not the YP we already have)
P-82 Twin Mustang
SC Seahawk
Seaford
TBY Sea Wolf

All these were practical designs that were either entering service as of VJ, or would have had the war extended for another year. I have my doubts as to whether the J7W Shinden would have become an operational production fighter within a year of VJ.

Add the De Havilland Hornet (a lightweight Mosquito that nearly entered service in the PTO), the Tempest Mark II (almost entered service in this theater as well - part of the RAF's so called Tiger Force) and the Seafire XV (I think thats the one). That'd be fun http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Fairy Firefly would be very cool.

Teh USS Colorado, USS Arizona, and IJN Haruna will be in the first patch I believe.

The reason I thought of the A-1 and the B-36 which as you state the times of introduction as history shows.
The B-36 might ... have been in earlier if a bombers had to fly from the US. As the war did not need these planes they were put on the back burner. The what if planes.
As for the A-1, It was the last of the prop planes of the USN.

Laughing at me? I didn't put the 109Z in there did I. I don't want it in there either. Dunno why people want fantasy planes in there when planes like the Avenger aren't flyable and theres still many aircraft not represented in this series that actually made a difference.

Nope. No way. The Fat Man bomb weighed 10,000lbs. Little Boy weighed in at around 9,000lbs, so unless the corsair was modified to have a bigger wing, another three engines, and a big fuselage to carry all the fuel, then it seems rather unlikely that it could carry one.
