Make me a match!

For a Okinawa map.
Here are the planes that historically few against Okinawa and are ingame:

USN:
All carrier planes from 1943 to 1945.

US Tenth Army Tactical Airforce:
B-25, P-47, P51, A26 (Could use the A20G to represent this)

IJA:
I cant find any info about historically flown planes.
I know zeros made kamikaze attacks. I ausume most IJA and IJN planes can be used.


I want no more than 4 plane types per side including bombers......what would be a good match?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks Firelock!
I'm not a fan of big plane sets so how about:


RED
F6F-5
SBD-5
A-20G
B-25J-1NA
P-47D-27

BLUE
Ki-84-Ib=20
A6M7_Model63
N1K2
D3A1
G4M1_11


Is that a fair match? Will any of those planes end up not being used? :confused:

When you think about it the SBD is pretty much redundant if the A20 is there and B25(I think even the P47 you have carries almost as much bombs). F4U, P51s,P38s are all popular planes for US planes fans people might well ask where are they? ditch the SBD and add another red fighter. Same is true of the D3A1 Val the Ki84 and the N1K2 both carry more bombs and the Val is a deathtrap on this later war era. J2M3 perhaps, tough plane to fight though.
Anyway if your going for a smaller set (which is probably very wise) these would be my thoughts.

Thanks again for the Help!

Good point about the SBD; thats out.
Im happy to add the F4U.

Not sure about the P-51.....it it a fair match against the IJA planes? It would also make the P-47 a little redundant as a fighter.

P-38 is a no-no as they where not used at Oki. as far as I can tell unless the Navy was using them.

Blue
Again, good call on the Val, J2M3 sounds good

How about:

RED
F6F-5
F4U (D or C)
A-20G
B-25J-1NA
P-47D-27

BLUE
Ki-84
A6M7_Model63
N1K2
J2M3
G4M1

Does that look like a fair match?

Im tempted to remove the N1K2 as they where not very common at Oki. and I dont want to make the Zero redundant.

Zero is already redundant when there is Ki-84 and J2M3 available. What you should do is to limit all but the mainstay fighters you want in the air IMO..

F4U-1, F6F-5 vs A6M7, Ki-100, Ki-61 could be a good match, served with P-47, P-51 vs Ki-84, J2M3, N1K2 in small numbers and/or maybe a grid or two away from the actual bases..
