ORIGINAL: Commander Stormwolf

designs that were available:

G5N - yes, there were available since 1941 - 4 were on hand on Dec 7
G8N - yes, they were built and can be available late war



I've often wondered why these two are not part of the AE. There were in WitP at least one of them was but can't remember which.

Both flying. G5N was weird designed so all ready planes become as transport plane.
G8N dont go to massive production because industry was broken. But plane was real (same as planes like J1W or Ki-201).

G5N was really poor airplane. Unreliable, too heavy, slow... There's no point have that in the game, because Japan produced only couple prototypes.

need G5N , and make the player pay the correct materials cost (20.1 tons)

so an inexperienced player might say "cool, i have a 4E.. lets build them"

but 1xG5N costs the same as 9 zeroes


there was a good reason why axis didn't build large number of 4E

but the player can have the choice to do so

about dinah factory

stop sonia factory
use Ha-31 stockpile to build Dinah
convert Ha-31 factory to Ha-32

G8N was pretty good

similar speed to a B-29, and a lot cheaper to build (17 tons versus 30 tons)

but not quite the range of course


under a different economy (no submarine blockade.. or B-29 raids)
it would have been quite plausible to build them

also would have been a good platform to launch the Ohka

Kawanishi H8K-2


Just to clarify, i know the H8K can carry 4x250kg at extended range.
Can i assume it is 8x250kg at normal? It only lists a torpedo at normal range.
If so it might be worth it to manufacture on a large basis.

main thing you need are slots that classify H8K as level / torpedo bmbr

right now only a few small slots as a patrol


user defined unit size would be nice, otherwise use editor
