call me boring...
« on: July 09, 2019, 08:29:51 AM »

...but I love maritime recon, ASW, and AsuW missions (partly because I have zero dogfighting skills).

However we are struggling a bit with NATO Cold War maritime aircraft.

Mercator:

Bombsight not functional.
Bomb loadout only.

Neptune:

Bombsight not functional.
Impossible to takeoff with full fuel tanks, let alone a weapon payload.

Shackleton:

Bombsight not functional.
Bomb loadout only.

I know this is not directly linked to BAT, but as I use BAT exclusively (as I am sure many others do), I included this post in the lounge. Not a criticism at all – I’m very grateful for all the fantastic work done by everyone in my favourite sim - but wouldn’t it be nice if at least some of the above were made fully functional?

All is not negative for the period, though.

Privateer:

Used until 1951
Nicely varied ASW/AsuW loadouts.

Short Sunderland:

Used in the Far East in ASW/AsuW role until 1959, and by the RNZAF until 1967! (mainly because of limited airfields suitable for the Shackleton).

Tracker:

Nicely varied ASW/AsuW loadouts.

I suck at night fighting, and simply won't fly if the lights are out.



cheers

I am a big fan of the Sunderland as it deals with another of my regular problems - I can't overshoot the runway with a flying boat...

Landing flying boats and sea planes is quite easy. Ditto for most stuff with a fixed undercarriage.
