Is this just a remake of Tuskeegee Airman? It looks a lot like it at least borrows alot from that movie in the preview trailer.

Looked good until...what's this? Strafing a battleship? Huh?

They did sink a German destroyer via strafing.
Lots and lots of 1/2 inch diameter holes in a ship can let in a lot of water.

Makes me also wonder if it will be "that which shall not be named" type movie

The jury might still be out on Red Tails but this one is definitely cringe worthy.

Strafing a BB could supress the AAA fire. Not sure it would accomplish anything else though.

F6Fs strafed the Yamato's AAA gun crews during her final sortie and caused horrendous losses amongst them according to "A Glorious Way to Die" (think that that is the title - read it a long time ago - her last sortie as detailed by a surviving JO).

Looks similar to the made for TV version made a decade or more ago. It is "inspired by true events".

Knowing Hollywood this'll have more than a taste of "spectacular" stuff that is so far removed from reality.

I'm sure that didn't produce the Hollywood grade explosions as shown in the clip....
