Thread: Unofficial aircraft corrections and additions

    Default Unofficial aircraft corrections and additions

    I have been a bit behind with updating the unofficial aircraft lists, with 8 new decks since it was first posted. One of the first things this week was starting to redo the Ju.88s, since I had them using the heavy fighter base, and they are officially bomber bases. Plus typos and moments of idiocy
    So I will be posting the corrections here, as I come up with them. I ask for a minimum amount of comments here; please start another thread, if we need discussions.

    Unofficial aircraft V.1 errata

    1) Vickers Wellington: base should be a bomber base.

    2) Corsair: Deck is now the T deck

    3) Hawker Typhoon to T deck

    4) Nakajima "Kate" : ZJ(B) deck: no reversal, 90 degree turns, extreme SS or regular SS; only fast SS.

    5) Ju.88P: front guns are fixed. P-1 is a 75mm ground attack only. P-3 is 3 37mm, so D-D/D. P-5 has a single 50mm, D/A. Rear gun is a A/A standard rear gun.

    6) K** deck: Should be no 45 dregree turn or fast SSs

    7) Hawker Hurricane Mk.IID is a K deck (and marked as (trop)).

    8) Spitfire Mk.VI is an A deck.

    9) Ju.88S-1: Deck is now the Y/(M w/boost) deck, hits 25, ceiling 12, climb 5
    Given the boost endurance, you might want to assume it is in effect the whole game.

    10) Ju.88D: Deck is now the Y deck; hits: 28; ceiling: 10; climb: 7

    11) Martin B-10B, and also the 139WC, and 139WH-2
    Deck: T(Zb); hits: 21, ceiling 5, climb 7

    12) Martin 139H-3: (Aka Martin 166) Deck: ZM(b) hits: 21, ceiling: 8, climb: 7.

    15) Nakajima Ki-44-IIc Tojo: Guns are C-C-C-C/C-C
    or D-D-B/A (Optional provision for two 40 mm (1.57 in) Ho-301 cannons; this was rare, as the cannons didn't work very well (very short ranged, and should only be allowed 2 shots (10 rounds each) and were often pulled and replaced by the 37.5 mm Ho-203 MGs), so D-D-B/D-A
    or B/A (if cannon not replaced).

    I've been redoing the Ju.88s due to the release of the official ones. Also fixing errors I made:

    16) Junkers C-2: Use Ju.88A-1 stats; front guns are B-C/B; rear guns are:
    Dorsal gun: rear arc A/A; Ventral gun: rear arc low only: A/A

    17) Junkers Ju.88C-4 and C-6: Use Ju,88A-4 stats; front guns are B-C-C-C/B-C;
    rear guns are: Dorsal gun: rear arc A/A; Ventral gun: rear arc low only: A/A

    18) Junkers Ju.88 A, C, G-6c, and P models: remove house rule 3.

    19) Junkers Ju.88C-6c: “Schrage Musik” (forward) C-C/C, is optional; not all had it.

    20) Junkers G-1 and G-6a is now the Y deck.

    21) Junkers Ju,88G-6c: Ceiling is 11; climb is 5.

    22) Junkers Ju.88P1-4: Deck is now ZT(b)* (also take out the fast side slip cards).
    Ceiling is 7. delete house rule 3. Front guns are ground attack only; delete the A/A mg (for aiming only).

    23) Junkers Ju.88D: Recon version of the A-4. Use those stats for it.

    24) Me.410: all models now use the Q**deck (no 45 degree turns or extreme side slips).

    25) Me-410B models: Here are the guns for the B models, as near as I can make out. Bear in mind that after May-44, all A models left should have their front gun A/- upgraded to B/A:
    Messer. Me 410B-1: B-C-C/A-C
    Messer. Me 410B-2/R2/R3: B-C-C-D-D/A-C-D
    Messer. Me 410B-2/R4: B-C-C-C-C/A-C-C
    Messer. Me 410B-2/R5: 6xC/C-C-C
    Messer. Me 410B-2/U-4: B-D-D-X/A-D-X

    That's for the 50mm anti-bomber guns. Also used for AtG against tanks and flak.
    Given the very low RoF (45rpm) and the small amount of ammo (21 or 22 rds), some sort of house rule for it's use needs to be done.
    Obviously, it can only target bombers or ground targets.
    I don't have a good rule for it right now.

    Another note on this cannon; it was used at a longer range than MGs could shoot, by design. It did score several kills on B-17s and B-24s, but if there were escort fighters, they were dead meat.
