Hi All,


I've browsed through the posts here and found nothing on the subject:

Is it possible to simulate the Doolittle raid down here in WitP AE?
Meaning, having B-25s take-off from a carrier close to Japan and land somewhere else in China or Russia?

I've seen some B-25 squads in the West Coast but there seems to be no way of making them "carrier capable" and trained for that.


Thanks!


Felipe

No, it is not.

It would have entailed a lot of work for a small return for the developers.

It's not, but feel free to try a normal carrier air raid on Tokyo early in the war. If your opponent isn't vigilant, you might get your own mini Pearl Harbor. I've tried this a couple times in my games. Unfortunately, in both cases I was detected before I got in range.

Using the editor, you could create a special carrier capable model of B-25 and a squadron that would use it (the squadron would also need to be carrier trained). While the squadron wouldn't be able to land a different base after bombing their target, you could use a house rule where you get 1 raid with them and then disband the squadron.

Yes, LST has this built into his mod, Bottlenecks in the Pacific.

In game terms it wouldn't have a measurable effect. Propaganda victories don't feed any bellies or put boots on any feet.

We could have you score some PPs if you rescue Amelia Earhart.

If she's grown a beard and is wearing coconut shells for a bra you would lose PPs.

Is this a trick question? A spice has nothing on a yacht in service of the US Navy in the defence of the Philippines.

Not a trick question. It has been asked by many young men and many young men have answered it. Of course, you have to understand the question and its importance.

Mary Ann +1

Isn't she the only Gilligan's Island performer left? I guess I could Google that.

I get the Gilligan's Island cast confused with the Lost in Space cast.

In the Bottlenecks mod you can. You get a unit of carrier capable B-25s.

It's intended you withdraw them soon after.

What does the first "P" stand for in this context?

In what is likely a futile attempt to bring us back to topic...

I've played LST's mod through the available window for the B-25 CV raiders four or five times...once in a PBEM but have never been in a good position to pull of the raid. Has anyone?

Oh, and yeah, Mary Ann +1...

Thanks for the clarification, guys!

@GeoffLambert,

I’ve tried to get a hold of Amelia early in the game but when the Japs invaded the Gilberts, she was all gone for good!


@Shellshock

And...wow, what a Mary Ann!!! +1 with no doubt!

Thanks guys.

Sounds like it's another slam dunk for Mary Ann.

Hopefully, Ginger's departure will be merseyful and quiicckkk.

Now that Mary Ann has passed that test, the following:
