Mine would have to be this!

I know I know.... in real life they sucked! and the pilots hated them! But ever since AotP (Aces of the Pacific) that has ben my favorite Pacific plane ever! (Not too many games have a TBD1 ) After that comes the Wildcat.

The B-25!!!!!!

It's fast and takes a steady hand to land it on a carrier with it's high landing speed!

I don't have a fancy screenshot though

Here's an approximation though..

Those graphics remind me of the original MS Flight Simulator for the PC Jr. The one that had the WWI "side" flight simulator. The flying I beams. It was awesome. Small square grid with 2D mountains on two sides of the grid. Ahh...the memories.

Hmmm.... well thats a good question Argon. I'd have to say the P-39 Airacobra (I CURSE YOU RAZER!! ) Ever since the FSDOE P-39, I've been hooked on it!

Can you fly the B-25 out of the box in CFS2 or did you import it from somewhere?

I now have a new favourite plane!

Here it is in Canadian markings, shooting down a Val over the Swiss Alps
(It's a great BnZ'er)

Argon V:

That jet is just lovely! Where you get that plane from. It doesn't come with the box flyables does it?

It looks like a 3 seats fighter/bomber. I genuinely like the look of it you know. So could you possibly tell me where I can download it from if it is a downloadale plane. Appreciated

My favorite plane is the one with an AI pilot from another game that will actually drop a torpedo or bomb on a ship when told to do so !!

My favorite in CFS2 is the F6F Hellcat, as far as fighters go.

FMI, has anyone sunk a ship with a Dauntless yet? Either I'm dropping a 500 ponder on a pt boat to no effect, or I need to brush up on my DB skills. BTW, I miss that nifty bomb sight from PAW.
I wonder if MS would release their cockpit rendering tools (when you wish upon a star) for 3d, if not we can probably stitch together a 2d pit with stock instruments and a hole in the floor for a bomb sight .

Cheers! ArgonV. I suppose the download comprises of the FM for the plane naturally.

Actually, I believe Airbuddhas AI downloads are the stock CFS2 flight models. There are some FM fixes for the Betty Val and P-39 however that I would suggest you go find.
