Hello,

1st I think It's quite nice to see the Pacific Theatre air war revisited again,
Well...We have to admit that the theatre is actually rarelly potrayed in Flight sims even thought the Pacific war is considered the place where the most intense arial actions happened in WW2.
(I can say that european airwar almost have been almost done to death by flight sims this past 10 years...yet I only noticed 3 titles about the pacific...made by Dynamix, Microprose and more recent Microsoft)

Now, This is only according to my personal POV...I do think The PCF team should include the American Douglas TBD Devastator, SBD Dauntless and Grumman TBF Avenger in the game..since those craft have significant roles in that Theatre.

Thank you,

Yes, rarely represented things need their time in a good simulation......like this one. Therefore, the F8F really and truly does need to be included. No deals, not "only if....", fact is, all planes that can in any way be calculated or made from raw test data need to be included. Even things there were little more than indepth proposals/designs at the time (IOW - all but prototyping done). But...... the F8F is one of the easier things to do, would be an absolute blast, is one of the most qualified non-traditional types, and thus far languished in the world of simulations, except maybe for the CFS stuff, but...... CFS... :::shudder:::

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif Uuuuggghhh, stop whining for your uberplane and just grab a POS F4F-4 like the rest of us. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif Nobody ever said it would be easy.

lol! You guys are all just afraid of having a US plane that would dominate evreything shy of turbines.

The Hellcat, if done right (and we'll see about that), will surprise the hell out of, and piss off, just about everybody. Having the F8F done justice for like.....the first time EVER, would not only be triple sweet, but would also cause tons of virtual deltawood to be strewn over eastern europe. Be sure. heh heh heh http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

No use whining if we don't know that they won't be available.

We've already seen a picture of the in development TBM Avenger. I feel fairly confident that the TBM will definately be flyable...and I can't see the Dauntless or the Devastator left out (the ill fated torpedo attack that effectively removed the Devastator from service for instance).

What about the Curtis Helldiver? I want to fly that one in the late war campaign against the Japanese battleships.
