I've just got the 1946 version last Christmas and I really love it.

However there's only a slight downer about it, and that's when playing as the Japanese you don't get to play the Entire War on a Japanese perspective.

Imperial Japanese Army: You only get to fly on the Invasion of Singappore and the Battle in New ******a, after New Guinea they say Japan wins the War.

Imperial Japanese Navy: I played mostly as a Fighter Pilot but when the Battle of Midway ends, they say again that Japan wins the War.

Is there a way to get the entire careers to play as Historically accurate in both cases?

I really want to play the entire war from a Japanese perspective

So you wanna be a Kamakazie pilot and sink the Yorktown dont ya. Well you might have to download mission pack to get more closer to a real Japaneses campaign.

Im still marveling at how my squadron can shoot a enemy plane up, catch it on fire, and have it pull a manuver and come at me at a speed faster than when we were originally shooting at it and fill me full of led.

I really had a great time flying the Oscar and it's not that bad...If you enjoy your plane to be agile that is.

The Mistubishi G4M also is fun to fly like the Zero

Well when it comes to playing Kamikazes, how about escorting G4M carrying Ohka human-bombs on the American fleets missions? We already have the Pearl-Harbor Strike and a Japanese Campaign about shooting down B-29s so why not going all out?

on a serious note, have you tired downloading nimits's true pacific dgen. It really improves the stock dgen pacific campaigns, much more realistic and imersive imho.

I just dont like most jap planes, i dont really value turning v speed and climb, and i find they ruin my flying in other planes, plus they are generally under armed and ignite like a petrol covered keg of gunpowder.

Yeah that's a downer with the Japanese planes but their philosophy about Military planes was mostly about aerobatics in order to get a bunch of kills...Much like the Italians yet a bit better

As I understand it, the Japanese hadn't moved away from the aerial combat tactics of the First World War. Their aim was to pick a target and stay on it, thus the maneuverability inherent in their aircraft.

BTW, not all later-war Japanese airmen were kamikazes. There were several squadrons, though not all operating due to lack of fuel, etc... that were still fighting the traditional fight.

Yeah, the Japanese really lacked a reserve of oil to keep up the fight against the Americans, but that wasn't the only problem the Japanese had.

Their Factories were Bombed around the clock ever since Saipan fell, and on top of that, the Japanese average Air Crew seriously fought like amateur by comparison.

But that doesn't mean their aircrafts are no fun to fly
