Impressive list--especially the Japanese.

It's going to be a bang-up free-for-all.

Woody,

Wait until you see Olympic. Much more of a flight of fancy.

Jets
Adopted German weapons on both sides
Revolver cannons
Contra-rotating prop jobs.

Maybe I can fit in the ground fire mod we set up for "Silent Wings".

Men will shake in their boots, women will cower and children will cry out for their mothers. :shock:

Plane set is done for Coronet. Includes:

Aircraft models, flight models and hangar screens for all the planes except the B-29's.

Now it's on to the weapons and then the loadouts. :party:

Ray, If I'm not wrong Coronet ( planned for March 1946 ) goes well after Olympic ( planned for November 1945 ), so Coronet shall have more "NEW" planes than Olympic, as Olympic planned for 1945 give no time for new planes to reach frontline service.
A nice page to look at :

maybe this incomplete Main could be usefull too...

...by 1946 it would seem the ruskies could be involved by now?

Hi Shreck,

Thx for acknowledging the hard work on the EAW16.HM. It wasn't easy to fit the elevations within the tile boundaries. BTW very nice tiles too.
Stratos did a great job on this eh? Can't wait to see where this will go, good luck.

One of the nicest parts of your terrains is the varying heights that make flying interesting, VBH.

Looking forward to what will be done for the HM for Japan, Shreck.
So far, it seems impressive.
Japan's mountains like Fuji and its rich colors will give us new insights to "what might have been".
