The "Generic Depth Charges" on Soviet vessels have far too great a range compared to the named ones on Western vessels.

The 1944-era Sunderlands operated by the Royal New Zealand Air Force in the ASW and maritime patrol roles from 1951 to 1967 (http://www.airforce.mil.nz/about-us/new ... erland.htm ) are in the database [:)]

How about the Sprint and Spartan Missiles (and radars) the US developed? I know they were deployed and then removed almost immediately but it might be interested to explore their use otherwise.

Talking about World War II platforms. I would like to see HMS Hood. We now have a lot of World War II platforms, I think it would be interesting to include Hood. Also I think another "What If" candidate could the Battlecruiser HMS Tiger (cut in the 1930s because of the Naval Treaties).

Some of these may have been mentioned before, I'm just copying over the list I've begun in another post as it's been suggested I post them in the CWDB and DB3000 posts from the devs.

Database errors/various other errors:

CWDB Canada: Arrow Mk.2 = Arrow Mk.2 should be powered by the Orenda Iroquois engine, only the 5 Mk.1s were powered with the American-made P & W J75s
CWDB United States: YF-12A = range seems to be quite low considering the platform it's based off of. This aircraft hits bingo fuel too late like the XF-108 below and crashes about 70nm away from base.
CWDB United States: XF-108 Rapier = hits bingo fuel far too late. If you go on a straight run until bingo fuel, aircraft runs out of fuel some 100nm or more away from base.

Suggested new Database entries:

CWDB Canada: Arrow Mk.1 = already exists as the "Arrow Mk.2" in the current database.
CWDB Soviet Union: La-15 Fantail = was introduced in 1949 and retired in 1953 with some 235 produced.
CWDB Soviet Union: Yak-17 Feather = an improvement based on the Yak-15 introduced in 1948 and retired in the early 1960s with some 430 produced. Also served in the Polish, Romanian, and PLA Airforces.
CWDB Soviet Union: Yak-23 Flora = a further development of the Yak-15/Yak-17 introduced in 1949 and retired in 1951 (retired in 1956 in the Polish Airforce) with 310 produced. Was utilised by the Soviet, Polish and Romanian Airforces.
CWDB Soviet Union: Yak-27 Flashlight-C = 3 different entries, the Yak-27 with is only cannon armed. Yak-27K which was missile armed and Yak-27R which was a tactical reconnaissance aircraft. Only the reconnaissance version was actually put into service and served from 1960 into the late 1970s.
CWDB Soviet Union: Be-10 Mallow = Flying boat.
CWDB Soviet Union: M-50 Bounder = Supersonic bomber design. 2 prototypes built.

Hiya

UK ship R12 HMS Hermes needs to have its aircraft facilities upgraded to reflect its ability embark Buccaneers.
at the moment it can only take medium sized A/C while the Buccaneer is rated as a large aircraft in the database

"she was first refitted in 1964-66 to operate Sea Vixen and Buccaneer aircraft having her flight deck widened ( now 160ft max.) to starboard of the island in an "Alaskan highway""

The generic depth charge has been fixed, but the BMB-1 Depth Charge (Weapon #1604) still has the too-long range of 2 nm.

Checked to make sure it was indeed much shorter

I have mentioned earlier the possibility of adding generic suicide explosives as weapons, but I wonder if it would make sense to do it as ships and facilities? Each of them would have a weapon, but one with no range (or maybe 0.001 miles, if it has to have some range to work), and with enough explosive power to destroy the ship/facility itself and any nearby targets.

Suicide Bomber (Terrorist) <-- possibly modeled as the Downed Pilot, but with a warhead?
IED (Terrorist)
Land Mine (Generic)
Anti-Tank Mine (Generic)
Vehicle (Truck Bomb) (Terrorist) <-- 500-lb. warhead?
Vehicle (Truck Bomb, Nuclear) (Terrorist)

And watercraft...

Civilian Boat (Suicide Bomb) <-- 500-lb. bomb for this one and the other non-nuclear ones?
Fishing Boat (Suicide Bomb)
Civilian Dhow (Suicide Bomb)
Civilian Junk (Suicide Bomb)
Container Ship, Feedermax (Nuclear Bomb)
Tanker, General (Nuclear Bomb)

Anyway, it's just a thought. Maybe this would be an easier way to do things?

Minor point...it occurs to me that if these are added they probably should be named differently so it is not obvious when one encounters one of these things what it is. If something shows up as Civilian Dhow (Suicide Bomb) in the game display, after all, one would probably just sink it rather than let it get close enough to cause damage. :)
