    Don't talk about forgivness! That's good, thanks for your criticism!

    Well, I think that Japanese fighters are to good for them (here i mean F4F-3). But ok, they are out of planeset.

    Neither do I - I think we gotta test it on Multiplayer arena/.

    I will leave two Bofors for the American car & artillery positions and one on the airfield.

    You mean that I should exchange destroyers to clippers? Sorry, but there is lack of Japanese naval units. I can change the formation (make it chaos) and low the number of escort, nothing more.

    Well, Midway is not in UKD1 circle.

    Corrected map will come tomorrow or monday.

    Thanks for criticism again,

    You might want to listen to JtD mate, he`s been doing UK1 maps for a very long time, he`s usually right.

    That's why I made this map.
    JtD, what did you certainly mean with those carriers formation? What should be changed?

    Looks good Fergi. I've been trying to do a Wake scenario for a while now but I haven't come up with anything I ever liked.

    This looks good. No need for the A6M2. Just the A6M2-21. The A6M2 is basically a A6M2-11 and aside from almost no differences in performance only saw limited service in land theaters at the very opening of the conflict anyways.

    Are you sure that the Wake scenario lends itself as a mission scenario for a flight sim? There were 12 F4Fs stationed on Wake, total. Well and a PanAm Clipper, but after the first attack of G3M2s (which we don't have) already half of the F4Fs were destroyed on the ground.

    Zorin, it don't have to be 100% historical scenario.

    I've got some problems with IL-2, so I can't fix the map now.

    It'd still be fun. I was trying to do a 1943 version of the scenario with the first deployment of Hellcats...but I couldn't get it to feel right. Early war Wildcats and Buffalos might be more fun
