View Full Version : B-25 Off of Carrier

Any Doolittles out there who've done it? Is it possible?

It can be done with a full load of fuel and 500 pound bombs if the carrier is large and steaming fast into the wind.

There's a Doolittle raid recreation (simulated on Kyushu) on the mission pack link by my sig.
Taking off is not really all that hard, trying to navigate with map icons off is actually the harder part.

have done it in training although without bombs.

Just did it. Made sure carrier was going 25 knots. 12 x 100 lb bombs. Full fuel. Take off flaps.

I tried it, but my joy stick has no dead zone, so i pulled back, then all the sudden the the joystick stopped working
and i nosed down into water...
The AI plane made it though
He was about a foot off the water http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I havent really tried taking off from the carrier with the B-25, but I have been able to land on the carrier. Although it was set on the easy difficulty. I tried again on the hard difficulty, but I kept crashing into the fantail or hard landing on the deck, or rolling off the front just as I'm about to stop.

On a side note. I was able to LAND and TAKEOFF with the TB3(SPB) with 2 I-16(SPB) attached, with it set on the hard difficulty. Altough I did have to use the IJN Shokaku CV running at its top speed, since it was wide enough for the TB3's wingspan. But only by a foot or two away from the island. I have the track but I dont have a site to post it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
