As far as i know we have only A-20 and G4M (Betty). we might be getting the Kate later (single engine japanese torpedo bomber)

no dauntless or devastator?

The Dauntless is flyable, but it isn't a torpedo bomber. You probably mean the Avenger. It's in the game but AI only.

Yeah and if'n that weren't bad enough it hasn't half the load outs it should have.
makin it as good as broke d!ck dog in a pound full O' b!tches!!

But somebody has felt sorry enough for one side to include ,in the future, a japanese equiv, but the Ami's, round eyes or what the "F' ever yer nick is fer us/them , are still screwed blue & tattooed @ the end of the day!

Sympathy is a Bee yotch , huh?!

Dont forget, Der Stuka can also carry torps, and actually did serve in the Pacific Theater. The Germans sent something like six or twelve to use on trials on the Japanese carriers. Pretty interesting stuff really. They had intended to finish the Graf, and wanted
T/O and landing gross weights, etc. LongHorn

I don't think the Stuka has torpedoes as an available load out in this here game Tex. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Beaufighter Mark 21, A-20G, G4M, He-111, IL-2T. For the merged folks, there's a decent number of flyable torpedo bombers.

Sadly, none of the classics, particularly the Avenger, are to be found. This situation is not likely to change.

Very sadly indeed. Especially considering the TBF has 3 different versions in the game already as AI only, and the TBD has a model that wasn't included in PF for some reason unknown to us. The B5n is in but AI only too. No Fairey Swordfish. Nothing. No flyable torpedo bombers at all, just dive and level bombers that can coincidentally be fitted with torpedoes.

B6N2 was mentioned in Oleg's last update list, but it looks like if it is included at some point, it will be AI only.

Beaufighter of course and the A-20

The A-20G is a light level bomber/attack bomber. It seldom carried torpedos historically, nor is there any (historically accurate) map ingame for it to operate as a torpedo bomber. Ditto (though to a somewhat lesser degree) for the Beaufighter and the He-111 (which does have some maps where it can act as a torpedo bomber). The G4M1 and the Il-2T are the only dedicated torpedo bombers in game; neither is carrier cabable, and only the G4M1 can (historically) be used in PF.

Why we don't have an AI TBD, and why UBI/Maddox evidently signed away the rights to put a cockpit in the TBF (and why Grumman even gives a hoot whether a plane already in the game has a cockpit or not), is way beyond me.
