I think I could manage abit better than that if the carrier was moving instead of stationary!

This was harder, cause she's not a tricycle gear kite.

If you like these sorts of stunts and achievements I'd suggest you get the "For Good Pilots" campaign. One mission involves landing a B-25 on a carrier and taking off again

There have been some truly amazing carrier landings posted here over the past few years.

I never tried the P-38 for a carrier landing but it should be one of the easier ones since you can get her down to such a crawl of a approach/landing speed. P-38s also get into the air really quickly too. Don't know if this is realistic but the Lightning flies like that in the game anyway. The KI-84 also has a stupidly slow landing speed so it should be easy to get on a carrier too.

anything with tricycle gear is a dead easy, heres some screenshots i took about 4/5 years ago maybe, when pacific fighters hadn't been out that long. they're the oldest screenshots in my photobucket account, lol,

really as i said above, anything thing with tricycle gear can be be put down easily, the only thing you have to be careful is hitting the super structure with planes that have a wide wing span.

even more so when you have an airbrake that will get you to stall speed within a few seconds http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
