    You really got the death animation fire down this time Ripp, looks completely real!

    I know I'm one of those bastards who always asks, but can we ever hope to see a Comanche Helicopter?

    Ripptide, just one question, since the B5N2 was a Naval Bomber why did you use the Army camo scheme, and why is it dropping bombs instead of a Torp? Just curious as it seems a little odd in that scheme, and dropping bombs.



    Cheers Thorgrimm

    @Thor: Didn't the Kate (amongst others) also come in dark green despite it was a naval plane ? (Btw- what's with that weird Carthage-Quote- the Carthagians called the Romans barbarians :lol: )

    @Ripptide: Nice Cammo there- will you be making a Torp Bomber out of this ?

    Thanks much all )

    Khai, best I can tell you is eventually ) Have a bunch of stuff in the cue but it'll get there

    Thor, this color scheme isn't an IJA pattern (as far as I could find there were no Kates used by the IJA), its from a bomber squadron which flew off the Soryu. And it's dropping bombs because it was used to do both (in fact when they were used to attack Pearl Harbour, IIRC there were more configured as horizontal bombers than as torpedo bombers) .

    Yep W.i.n.t.e.r I was thinking about doing a version as a torp bomber for those that wanted to use it as such :)

    @Ripptide, thanks, did not know any Naval squadrons used that splotched camo on their Kates.
    @W.I.N.T.E.R. LOL! The quote is in response to a lot of Anti-American sigs i see floating around on CFC. :D I figure they are using false statements, so i would quote going the opposite way. ;)

    thanks for this. It cuts down my list faster than I could hope for.

    Let me bring you back some time and ask about the Chi-Ri tank for the Japs. I remember I saw that together with the Ki-43 somewhere. The japs have very few tanks indeed. Any hints ???

    It's not a fighter,
    but a torpedo bomber.

    Ripptide if you please could consider the D3A Val divebomber.
    The version out on the internet is said to be the Val but the flc files are surely more like a Kate toperdo bomber.
    So we do need this correct Val to make the carrier strength complete.

    Please Ripptide, consider it...

    Yup, a Val is still needed- Wyrmshadow's Val turned out to be a C6N (modified B6N "Jill")- so far I'm using his "Anne" for a "Val"
