Commander Stormwolf -> ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 6:29:28 PM)


yours?

mine? H8K3 - 305mph flying boat

operate from anywhere, do almost anything


a rare photo (only 2 H8K3 built), nice retractable floats

Schanilec -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 6:37:03 PM)

That was what I was going to pick. I have a 1/144 H8K2 die-cast at my desk.




Schanilec -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 6:56:48 PM)

I could also go with the P1Y Ginga 'Fances'. American, that would have to be the Hellcat or the B-24.




moonraker -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 7:05:46 PM)

SBD Dauntless. The Allies best anti-shipping weapon for early - mid war period

Nice picture!!

There are just loads to choose from.....I'll have a think!!




Bullwinkle58 -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 7:46:56 PM)

Bearcat. Just about the Nth development of the prop fighter which showed how ready naval air was for jets. I got to crawl all over one when I was a kid (Armed Froces Day air show) and Ill never forget how it pulsed with sheer power and musculature. Truly a beast.




RisingSun -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 8:00:52 PM)

That also my favorite plane too, tough, realiable and travel so far.

Ilyushin-2 Sturmovik. Too bad you have to wait until the Soviet Union enters the war to play with 'em. [8D]

oldman45 -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 8:05:37 PM)

Wow that is a tough question. Since you said favorite I base that off of looks. So the Emily and Sunderland are my favorites along with the A20, F4U, B-25 and B-24.




Sakai007 -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 8:15:11 PM)

The B-25 is my favorite, in all of her variants. A modern medium bomber the the allies get early war. And then the skip bombing........ :D




mike scholl 1 -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 8:15:56 PM)

The A-20 and B-25 "gunships". Too bad the game does such a poor job of modeling their use. Between the massed forward-firing .50 cals. and the skip-bombing technique they pretty well spelled the end of all Japanese naval activity within their range.




Commander Stormwolf -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 8:23:56 PM)


Ki-44 and F8F are my favourite radial fighters probably, designed for rock climbing

large engine and tiny wings.. like a plane from a cartoon , some nice footage of F8F at airshows.. it keeps going up and up and up .. 5,000 ft/min




wadail -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 8:26:57 PM)

For performance, the A-26 Invader.. That thing ended up being able to carry 2x the specified ordinance and fought all the way through the Vietnam war.

Three contenders for me - I can't choose between them.

First there's the

But I think my favourite for striking terror early in the game is:-

Where did you get that loading screen from?

I want it!




GreyJoy -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 11:16:39 PM)

Spit VIII, hands down

I'd love to have the Spit IXc (my favourite plane when i used to fly on full swicth IL2 servers)....but we don't have it here[:(]




khyberbill -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/19/2012 11:41:35 PM)

PBY's any variant.

Go to Spooky's old WitP site at http://mathubert.free.fr
A fantastic free site with loads of sound files and alternative loading screens etc.

Scroll down to the heading marked 03/06/05 & and it will say 'A new OpenLoad screen by Matto with a preview here.'

Just download the zip and unzip directly into your Art folder making sure you back up the original files somewhere.

The new file must be entitled exactly the same as the one you are replacing ie. OpenLoadScreen_1024

There are loads of sounds files there also, many are a distinct improvement on the originals.

Large Naval Guns at 09/18/04 is particularly good, as is the Mayday, and many aircraft and bombardment sound files.

*A word of caution:- This site was set up for the original WitP.
Sound files and loading screen files etc are interchangeable with AE, but do not go anywhere near the map alterations/ plane art / ship art etc.
Most, if not all of these are not compatible with AE.*


Always back your files up when 'pimping' your version of AE

Enjoy!![:D]




CaptDave -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/20/2012 2:20:58 AM)

I'll vote for the C-47, but I've always been partial to transports. I'd have to think for a while about fighting planes.




LoBaron -> RE: ~ Favourite WITP Plane (9/20/2012 10:52:10 AM)

If it is just for looks, these two win.

+1 and because when you shoot down a zero with one of these you really feel like you have "punked" your opponent.....

Its slow, its unarmed - it wasn't prepared for War, but still the men who flew it gave their lives. Nothing but respect for the Douglas TBD "Devastator".
Oh and its one of the ugliest birds I've seen.
