asheshouse - do you know what the sights on the main artillery turrets were for? For shooting at air targets maybe?

As always - a beautiful ship and a great job - thank you very much!

Iron ring sights, for both surface and AA fire. Similar sights fixed on the top of the gun barrel when there were no turret shields.

Unlikely, but i would never rule anything out completely. It does have an interesting WWII record, with involvement in Torch, Overlord and Dragoon landings.
The primary purpose of ships in IL-2 is to enable campaign and mission builders to create realistic background scenery for mission building. So far the ships released do not appear to be attracting much interest from mission builders, or maybe I am just missing the posts.

To me, ship classes are the most eye-catching type of scenery, especially when they're actually getting in on the action with their guns and AA. Back in the days of unmodded Pacific Fighters, the fact that the Pearl Harbor missions (and really any mission featuring battleships) were populated with nothing but a bunch of the same generic battleship really bothered me.

Maybe I'm in a minority where this is concerned, but... eh. I dunno.

Agreed. It would be nice to see campaigns with the new ships, or older ones upgraded. However, don't ignore the 'dark web' of mission building, ashe! I fly primarily maritime missions, and use your ships personally all the time. But I'm far too lazy to write briefings and playtest everything, so don't really consider making them more widely available (I know I should).

Also, I use tobias's radar upgraded aircraft (Avengers, Swordfish, B-17, Hudson, Catalina), some of which are still WIP and would need to be installed manually by any potential user of my missions.

I suspect that there are many others like me - so please keep the ships coming!

Yours,

Clive

Ashe, your ships have contributed greatly to the sense of  visual engagement with the game. Your contribution is such that the simulator would be lacking in the sense of the history and authenticity that your labours have brought us all.

A mission without the masterpieces of our ship builders to fill our waves is like trying to have a good dinner with empty dishes....simply IMPOSSIBLE!!!
