    The CAC Boomerang was an indigenous produced fighter made by Australia during WW2.

    Nice unit to use for the Pacific nations :)

    could you do this Douglas A4 Skyhawk as well ?

    Hulfgar - It's funny you bring those 2 up. I was actually looking at the A4 last night and also thinking I needed more mobile artillery. If nothing it would be nice to have models and textures ready for whenever we get the ability to make units for Civ6. So yes, I'll probably work on those next. :)

    I'll probably leave the CAESAR on the back burner for now.

    After the next few units I'm going to focus on making models/textures for the earlier modern units (biplanes, tanks, fighters, bombers - think WW1 and WW2) since I think they'd get the most use.

    I also want to get some of my existing units polished up for an eventual input into Civ6. I'm really crossing my fingers that Firaxis will give us a way to get our artwork into Civ6 quickly!

    Thanks! I really love my 'little Boomer' in War-Thunder!

    If you get the time in future, there are a couple of other aircraft that would work along side the Boomerang (being 'native' designs for the most part, whether based on overseas designs or not):

    1) Wirraway (Aboriginal for 'Challenge' - Another personal fav from War-Thunder): A two-man light 'ground attack' dive-bomber - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAC_Wirraway
    2) Womera: A prototype light/medium bomber - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAC_Woomera
    3) Kangaroo: Post-war potential Mustang replacer, rejected in favour of Jets - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAC_CA-15
