Float plane questions - 1/11/2010 4:13:42 PM

I've got a few questions about floatplanes:

1. Can every float plane be used on subs? For example: if I decide to focus on the Jake, can I replace al other floatplane currently on subs with this type?

2. Regarding maximum range: when searching, does a plane keep flying until it has reached its max range? Or ss there a limit how far the plane will fly, even if it still has enough fuel to continue flying. (Iam asking this because iam leaning towards favoring the Jake above all other FP's, because of its larger max range and, hopefully, search distance)



Thanks,

Athius

In game terms any floatplane can be carried on the IJN subs.
HOWEVER, in real life only the Glen was designed to do so (light and folded/partially dismantled to fit in the hangar). No way could a Jake or Alf etc fit onto the sub.

Longer range is better but at a cost. If you set the range to max it will search but still only one 10 degree slice per phase, at reduced chance to spot and potential for more Op losses.

I would consider replacing Glen with Jake or Alf kind of gamey, even though the game will let you do it.

That issue should have been fixed - I really hate to se Jake on a sub. I do not know why the designers allow loop holes like this to pursist

There is however another FP late war ( and quite good) designed for subs is there not?

I only use the Glen for subs. Eventually the Jake for everthing else as I let the other types slowly die off.

Well maybe because you're big guys who can behave by themselves without the need for the programmers to add another line to the code, potentially fixing the issue but making a fuss and creating new ones while doing so...?

The M6A Seiran was designed for the I-400s, yes, but it was much larger than the E14 Glen, so it would be wrong to use them on the other subs. On the otherhand, I think it might be reasonable to use the other floatplanes from the I-400 if desired, as they were slightly smaller than the M6A's.

yeah, but the Seiran can only be used on the "submersible aircraft carriers" which carry three of them each
