    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." '

    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.

    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! :goodjob:

    Ripptide,
    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 just re-d/l-ed both versions, opened the zips and ran some flics w/out any problems. Maybe try again?
