WW2 era flying boat in basic blue....
Consolidated PBY-5 Catalina
and using the colors from VP-12 "Black Cats"
'Flying from the island of Guadalcanal during World War II, a squadron of black-painted PBY Catalina flying boats that operated mainly at night wrote another proud chapter in the history of U.S. Naval aviation. They were known as the "Black Cats." '
PBY-5 Catalina Black Cats
(First post! )
Finally we have a Catalina in Civ! Thanks, Rip!
Another fine one, ripptide! Just curious -- do you use it as an air or naval unit?
good question ozy, really not sure but I guess you could use it as either. I don't have it loaded in game, but I'd think you could set it up as a long range land based recon. Afraid the actual "how to use em" isn't really my dept
Didn't the Catalina also axct as a Anti-Submarine Warefare unit? If so, give it bombard stats of about (5.0.3), Lethal Sea bombardment, Detect Invisible, and Radar to make it an ASW plane.
Oh my God, I this is awesome! I may even make this a naval unit...
You're making this really fast!
Oh! I didn't realize I needed this unit, but now that I see it, I did! Thanks!
Thanks Ripptide.. the PBY has been a silent unit request of mine for a long time!
Very Nice ripptide Great addition well done
Same comment as everyone else...
Are the red parts in the prewiew are civ-coloured only?
Any ideas on how I could use this? A sub hunter comes to mind...but how?...Can planes see invisible?
The wings rocking back and forth are a nice detail that is often left out of other airplane units. Great unit!
can I ask if you're going to release some of the other planes and tanks I have seen pcitures of at CDGROUP.
This Catalina was among them, so was the Oscar.
I'm talking about the A5M Claude fighter, tanks like the Chi-Ri and some LVT.
I think you know what I'm talking about.
I also know they will be included in the SOP package but so where these intented to be. Just wondering.....
Of course hoping for a fine topmodel of the D3A Val to complement your fine Kate torpedo model.
Has anyone tested setting the unit as sea unit and giving it a low movement like 1 - 3 and giving it ability to perform air missions?
I'm just finding this beautiful unit..but after downloading it and then try to open it...I get a Corrupt message. The black version works fine!
I just re-d/l-ed both versions, opened the zips and ran some flics w/out any problems. Maybe try again?
Thanks Oz..I just try the regular PBY one again and it worked too! Thanks for the post!
I love the units from ripptide !
harm, that it still no Panzer IV (Version with with long gun) of him gives. I look for these for a long time ....
