Calling all Aussies and allies - petition UBISoft - to support inclusion of New Guinea maps e.g. Port Moresby, Buna, Lae, Milne Bay, and at least a couple of Aussie airfields in North Queensland and ACT, Horn Island etc. into Pacific Fighters.

Inclusion of the types of planes flown by the RAAF but not currently listed for inclusion in PF would be a bonus as well e.g. PBY, Hudson,Vultee Vengance, Beaufighter,Boomerang, Avro Anson, Wirraway etc to name several.

Why? Because if you dont you may not get it.

Heh; you can get all those places, on a 1:1 scale map in Target:Rabaul (http://www.targetware.net) today. And you get Rabaul, Guadalcanal, the entire Slot island chain, Bougainville all thrown in the bargain, too.

This coming week, or soon thereafter, a new version's coming out which will include the various P-38 models, F6Fs and a few other surprises. Target:Rabaul already has Rufe float planes, Zekes, Corsairs, P-51s, Ki-45s, H8K flying boats, Beaufighters, P-40Es and -Ms, Oscars and more.

It's taken care of. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Here is a little info about the Darwin raids.

Darwin Raids (http://www.pacificwrecks.com/history/campaign/darwinraids.html)

Broome Western Australia (http://home.st.net.au/~dunn/wa12.htm)

But to be honest If we only got PNG I would be happy the rest could come later.



Stiglr if you would like to advertise your game perhaps you could buy some webspace instead of constantly spaming this site.I wonder how UBI feel about this.

Oh, man, you're gonna regret that choice if you actually have to enter combat in one of those deathtraps. Flying a Wirraway against a Zero or a Oscar or a Nate is like flying a Buffalo with a hand and a foot tied behind you.

One of my Uncles was in No4 sqd as a aircraft fitter they had Boomerangs and Wirraways, and even though both those planes were not realy fighters I would still love to have them.

Well, pourshot they WERE, and were SUPPOSED to be trainers... but they got pressed into combat in the Dutch East Indies along with the Wildebeests, Ryans and other flying club castoffs.

They got butchered, too, along with the "front line" Hurricanes, P35s, Buffalos, D21s and the like.

Boomerang was designed as a fighter. It was found to be of no match to the emeny fighters so it was used in a ground support role.

How do we know that New Guinea isn't already in PF? Amoung other theaters of the PTO as well.

offered some time ago to do historical RAAF skins for PF with no response whatsover so your chances of getting special maps are likely not high http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


would be amazing maps though .. many of the peaks in New Guinea up around the 15000 to 17000 feet mark are alomost permanently in cloud .. clouds with rocks in

the airstrips are very short and go down the side of the mountains you land up hill and basically fly off the edge and drop into the gorge gaining airspeed as you fall before eventually pulling out before hitting the bottom

fun http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


as for the boomerang .. it was much like the I16, I153 or gladiator .. an extremely nimble manouverable fighter with unfortunately an airframe that couldnt handle a big power plant and hence lacked speed and altitude

yup defense of australia, they also need the aluetians islands chain. They seem to be rushing PF to fast I hope they dont forget to include alot of aircraft and maps for the aussies, same with japans invasion of china. I want to see some chinese aircraft and maps of china. Burma too.

btw petitions dont work look at the majority of users who wanted fb aircraft and maps added into the slightly tweaked PF engine. Shakes head at ubis choices

btw you forgot to mention the Lockheed PV-1 Ventura
(Lockheed B-37 Ventura) extremely important aircraft for the australians and british like the p39 and p63 was to russia.
