The C-47, the R4D, and the DC-3 are all essentially the same plane. If you've read the BSM description you'll know it's "the Plane with a Thousand Names"; including the Dakota, Skytrain, Gooney Bird, and others.

Since in the Japanese campaign you win at Midway, this implies that at least some of the Japanese carriers survive. I expect Akagi and Kaga would be amongst these, but don't expect to see them in the post-Midway, historically accurate US campaign.

hay, if u guys see anything in the screens or anywhere else in offical pictures tell me and i will put on the list i see the akagi up so so i will put it on the list just like the b 17 it was not in a screen but look up to the top the b17 is on a picture for this web site for this game so that makes it a cnfirmed unit just like the akagi. i also put the pete in there for whoever said that.

The Japanese used paratroopers from very early in the war, before the Americans used them operationaly, and to crown it all, the main plane used by the Japanese for this role was a version of the DC3 Dakota, for which they had aquired the plans pre-war.

i think the most important one mentioned earlier, is the I-400 Sen Toku class sub that appears in the trailer, launching a minisub from her forward deck.

that grey offset ramp on her deck is for launching 3 or 4 seiran floatplanes

Its a sub that launches aircraft. and a damn big sub.

thats the part of the game i'm looking forward to most
if of course, its a playable unit.

Lets hope its playable, In Midway you can't control the deyruter class cruiser or the Hawker hurricane.

As for the I-400 looks cool but i would stick to my old Midway subs, i can assure you that I-400 is not a speed demon.

how many planes could a cve hold

The Bogue class around 19 to 24 aircraft. A typical airgroup would be:

12 Fighters (F4F Wildcats)
9 Torpedo Bombers (TBF Avengers)

In Royal Navy service (31 of the 45 Bogue class ships built were at some point given to the RN), the ships typically carried Wildcats & Seafires for fighters and Barracuda's & Swordfish in the torpedo & bombing role.

Tamiya's 1/700 kit of the Bogue has Hellcats, Corsairs, Avengers and Helldivers so I'm assuming they were used to once they came into service:

3rd Sep 2008, 15:22
I love these littles CVE's...They're looking very nice....

But Hellcats, Corsiars and Helldivers were never on CVE's, beacuse they needed longer decks to start. There were Fm 2 and Avengers.

David603
4th Sep 2008, 15:36
I think your right concerning CVEs in US service, but the FAA operated Seafires, Hellcats, Wildcats and Corsairs off their Bogue class escort carriers. All the Bogue class CVEs transfered to RN service had their flight decks extended, while the USN examples didn't, this may be the reason the RN was able to operate larger fighters.

Look carefully on the image on the top of this forum.

There are two Japanese CVs, without doubt, that one behind is a Soryu class CV.

But look at that one on the front. It's NOT the Akagi. Akagi's bridge is on the left. So it can't be anything but the KAGA!

David603
6th Sep 2008, 13:22
I wish I could say I agreed that the carrier in that image is Kaga, but I've seen that image somewhere else with the bomber on the left. So I think the image has been reversed here, and the picture shows Akagi and the modified Soryu class carrier Hiryu, since both these carriers had bridges on the left side, which would translate into the right side with the image reversed.

Both Soryu and Hiryu are in BSM, so I think this is a more likely explaination, though I'm sure that the devs could flip the Akagi model to make the Kaga like they flipped the Soryu model to make the Hiryu if they wished.

Eagle1Division
8th Sep 2008, 02:08
What'd be really nice to have is the B-29 Heavy bomber. The B-17 carries 8,000 lbs or less depending on the range of the mission. But the B-29 could carry more than double that, 20,000 lbs of bombs. Mabye THEN heavy bombers could attack the Yamato :D .

While Eidos is on hypothetical Battles (Japanese Campaign), I wonder if they could fit the Montana in anywhere. Hmm... Montana VS Yamato...

The Kaga and Akagi is not same as Soryu and Hiryu. Soryu and Hiryu are based on the same class of hull, the Soryu class CV. The Akagi and Kaga are converted from Amagi class Battlecruiser and Kaga class Fast Battleship respectively. They cannot be simply flipped to become another one.

it looked like this until end of 1943 then it was converted in the way you mean!

The Yamato
23rd Oct 2008, 13:48
Yes, 1944 was when the Battle of Samar happened but the pre 1943 model of the Yamato was put in BSM.:scratch: Eidos probably had a time to do the updated version. I know it was converted before that as most ships are, to save money etc. I dont know the exact deatails of the Yamato model pre 1943. I should of mentioned I meant in the game at the Battle of Samar where some of the AA guns are invisible. When it was more converted with more anti aircraft guns when Japan started losing the war in the sky. If the Yamato model shows that in BMP it will make the feel of an air attack more intense instead of having invisible guns.

The Shinano wouldn't suit a Japanese campaign because it was sunk before it went to war by a USS submarine wolf pack.

The Kaga and Akagi is not same as Soryu and Hiryu. Soryu and Hiryu are based on the same class of hull, the Soryu class CV. The Akagi and Kaga are converted from Amagi class Battlecruiser and Kaga class Fast Battleship respectively. They cannot be simply flipped to become another one.
The Soryu and Hiryu are arguably more different looking than Akagi and Kaga, despite being based on the same class of ship since in addition to having her island on the other side Hiryu has her island much further back than Soryu. And they are close enough that you could get away with flipping the Akagi to make the Kaga with a few alterations such as the position of the 8in guns etc and this would be more accurate than doing nothing.

If your talking about the Shinano, she was sunk in November 1944, after being commisioned into the Japanese Navy but prior to her being deployed to the combat theatre. Shinano ran across the USS Archer-Fish while she was being moved between Yokosuka, where she had been built and Kure where she was due to recieve her aircraft and be readied for combat. Due to combination of factors, such as Shinano not having been tested for watertightness, the inexperience of her crew and a defective seam between her main and lower armour belts Shinano was sunk by just 4 torpedoes.

Far as I know, the Archer fish was operating solo when she took down the Shinano.

YUKIMURA300
1st Nov 2008, 14:23
The Archer-Fish was operating alone, ready to act as a lifeguard vessel for the B-29 raids. They spotted what they thought was a tanker, before they saw it was a carrier and sunk it. She wasn't part of any "Wolfpack".

The Yamato
4th Nov 2008, 15:26
All I simply meant was the the Archer-Fish is part of a submarine fleet/class. Like any vessal it will have another in its class. In this particular mission it was alone but it was still registered as a submarine under a certain class/wolfpack etc get my drift? The Archer-Fish was alone but it was still part of a group of submarines in the navy. We are on the same side but you dont understand what I mean. I mean the same thing but in a whole lot less more detail. I dont see whats the big deal about all of this, peace.

Anyways, I think that the sinking of the Shinano would be best suited to a US campaign not a Japanese one because there will be way more to elaberate on like I stated before.

We Canadians actually had two aircraft carriers at different times. I don't think they served in WW2 though. Look (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Magnificent_(CVL_21)) here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Bonaventure_(CVL_22))

Both were laid down during the war but neither was commissioned until the late 40's.

That has to be a South Dakota, just look at the funnel. Out of the three modern US BB classes only the South Dakota class had a single large funnel, while the earlier North Carolina class had two small funnels next to each other and the Iowa class had two tall, widely spaced funnels.

W4lt3r89
12th Dec 2008, 12:30
Looks like an Iowa to me.

Well, as i see it, this has only 1 of the funnel, Which was unique to the South Dakota class or any other US BB that carried 16" guns (http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/ship/images/bb-57-line.gif), NC had 2 funnels but the first one was nearly on the middle of the ship, and the 2nd one about 10-20m to the stern from the 1st one (http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/images/h68000/h68516.jpg)

Iowa had 2 funnels but 1st one was connected to the bridge section, as shown here. http://www.acepilots.com/ships/bb61.jpg

Also there is barely any gap between the 5" guns, unlike on Iowa, this MUST be the South Dakota. Refer to the images while looking the screenshot, and look on the chimney and the placing of the Secondary armament.

SuperE
12th Dec 2008, 21:31
That is the South Dakota it only has 16 5" guns. The North Carolina had 20 5" guns

In my opinion the North Carolina will not be in the game because it looks to much like the iowa which I was suprised they put the South Dakota in in the first place

This is the list of allied battleships I thought would end up in the game

Confirmed: Iowa, New Mexico or Pennsylvania, New York, King George V, Renown

Guesses: Colorado or Vanguard, Rodney, Montana, Alaska

It should be noted that Shinano is the larget "catch" by a Submarine ever.

In terms of raw tonnage absolutely. It's just too bad Shinano would have been pretty useless as an aircraft carrier anyway, since it could only carry some 46 or so planes. Carriers half its size could carry twice that. :)

I hope Colorado will be in the game, though more likely they'll go with one of the older Standards like NM or Penn. Hopefull both.

Dude, if so much as one Standard got in the game i'd be all over it. The forgotten battleships, they laid the groundwork for all US capital ship design over the next 30 years. The Pearl Harbor mission would be LAME if I saw Iowas in the harbor with the name "Maryland" or "West Virginia". The thing is they don't even really need to feature all of the Standards. Pennsylvania and Colorado are the only ones that really matter, since they were the final designs of their lineage. (Nevada to Penn, Tenn to Colorado).

Speaking of failed substitutes, anybody else remember that lame Pearl Harbor movie Bay did a couple of years ago? Remember seeing Ticonderogas and other guided missile cruisers during the Japanese attack? LOL.

Thing is, if models of the Pennsylvania and Colorado where put in the game then it would be relatively simple to adapt them to represent the other 3 classes of standard type. It would be possible to start with a single hull and adapt it with different bow shapes, superstructures and armaments to obtain accurate models of all the classes, though a shortened hull would be needed for the Nevadas.

I suppose that the New York model could be adapted to represent the Utah, but I don't think that it would be worth making a proper unit model for a ship that wouldn't be controllable and would only appear once in the game.

CaptHawkeye

I think he was just angry we "forgot" about Utah. It's not like we'd be using it anyway, since Utah was more or less retired and wouldn't be used in a war under any circumstances.

In fact, i'll see his Utah and raise him Wyoming. The old coal battleship converted into a convoy escort and training ship. Removed all of her primaries and replaced them with tiny destroyer DP guns. :)

SuperE
2nd Jan 2009, 18:24
I wouldn't care if it was in the game its just that it hasn't been mentioned much and it it one of the ships that have been sunk in Pearl Harbour.

Anyway I saw that the Yamato has been changed in the Dev journal trailer(only in the video not gameplay) they got rid of some secondary guns on the side and replaced them with AA guns

Maybe there will be two versions of the Yamato in the game
If so I would hope the will include the CL version of the Mogami so the Japanese will have a decent CL

CaptHawkeye
2nd Jan 2009, 18:52
I'm pretty sure Mogami was a purpose built CA. It was in the last game, and Japanese units are always in short supply, so i'm pretty sure you'll be seeing it.

That makes me think, it'd be pretty cool if we could "mod" ships or use "crew perks". Number 1, Engage Sarcasm!

Yamato Class BB - Set for Anti Aircraft (More AA guns and better fire control against air targets.)

Perk 1 - Sankaiden - Fire long range anti aircraft shells from your ship's primary battery.
Perk 2 - Overkill - Better ammunition design means all your weapons hit harder.
Perk 3 - Dead Silence - Your ship makes very little noise and is more difficult to track with sonar.

Colorado Class BB - No mod. (Ship is well rounded for all types of engagement)

Perk 1 - Extra Stores - Your ship carries more gun ammo of all types.
Perk 2 - Fire Control Radar - Greater accuracy with all weapons.
Perk 3 - Exhaustive Drilling - Your crews are well trained and operate the weapons much faster.

Northampton CA - Set for Merchant Raiding (Ship is slightly faster normal. Damage control quality decreased.)

Perk 1 - Extra Torpedoes - Your ship carries extra torpedoes.
Perk 2 - Kingfisher Recon - Your ship can engage targets farther away with aerial spotting. Can be shot down.
Perk 3 - Last Stand - The ship will continue to fight back even as it sinks.

Fubuki DD - Set for sub hunting. (Ship is equipped with better sonar that hears farther and can track targets at max depth close to it. Surface and anti-air capabilities decrease.)

Perk 1 - Damn the Torpedoes - Detect mines and traps.
Perk 2 - Hedgehogs - Advanced ASW weapon.
Perk 3 - Dead Silence

Gato SS - Set for Merchant Raiding

Perk 1 - Acoustic Fish - Torpedoes track moving targets.
Perk 2 - Overkill
Perk 3 - Crash Depth - The damage your sub takes over time at max depth is significantly reduced.

Oh man i'm having to much good dumb fun with this. :lol:

SuperE
2nd Jan 2009, 18:58

right just rasie the limit. because it was hard to operate only so many planes and split the 2 into fighters for CAP and some into a attack force. So not as much as rasieing the limit but the amount of slots for planes so i could have like 2 more squads.

The Lockheed P80 Shooting Star and the Nakijima J9Y Kikka (a plane loosely derived from the German Me262) bring jet combat to the Pacific, and the L2D2 Tabby transport (Japanese built DC3 Dakota) gives the Japanese paratroop cabability.

I have no idea what the new destroyer is must be a prototype has 8 DP guns and a five torpedo tube mount looks like a Fubuki


Akizuki class

8-3.9 in. (4x2) guns
4-25 mm. A.A. (2x2) guns
4-24 in. T.T. (1x4)
6 depth charge throwers and 72 depth charges

http://rasputin.physics.uiuc.edu/~wiringa/Ships/Period3/Japan/Destroyers/Akizuki.html

it fits the 8 DP guns perfectly looks like a fubuki, and yes, i know it only has 4 torp tubes but its close enough

Same here. Really the ships that survived or where re-floated and put back to sea should be in the game.

See pic11 on the new BSP site and check out the two Japanese cruisers in the background. Those turrets aren't 8in guns, compare them with the ones on the Takao class cruiser in the foreground, and only the Agano had that distinctive line round the hull.

W4lt3r89
15th Jan 2009, 08:13
Hmm... The hull design of those 2 background cruisers are related to the agano, and 3 gun's that are dual barreled... Propably 6.1" Type 41 Cannons..

*checks some images of Agano class cruiser*
Yep, mast gave it away, that is the Agano class light cruiser. I wonder does it come with the floatplanes..

And if Agano is made, there might be a chance that the oyodo class will be in aswell, since it was modified agano hull with rear turret taken away and more space for floatplanes.. Would be intresting to see. :thumb:
