Well, Then the Americans could offer it! Its all fictional anyway,As you see even the 3M is based on a book (Great Info Narvik, thanx)

I do think the Su2 would be a cool naval plane!

Its all fun. Its all good.

I downloaded the original Russian mod from Aviaskins when it was released and it's fun- so is this one!
After thinking a bit more about its historical possibility, my guess is that the Soviets would more probably have used a navailzed Yak-9U variant than a Yak-3; the "U" stands for "Ulisennui" or "strengthened", the (9Us had strengthened airframes (the classicists among us will discern "Ulysses" in "Ulisennui") which would have been more suited to the batterings of deck landings...... i

Well, the "U" actually stands for "??????????" - meaning "improved" in English, not strenghtened and I don't think it has anything to do with Ulysses. ;)

The plane looks great, Russian/Soviet navy planes always had great design and nice paint schemes.

Talking about fixes, this mod doesn't work too well for me. I get the plane and it flies okay, but none of the stores show up or operate. It is actually just the Yak3K duplicated. So far my virtual Russian Navy haven't been able to make the darn thing work properly. Sigh...

Nice airplane having fun flying it and got to agree with norm a longer landing hook would help with the landings

I looked there and Flightsimfiles but no luck. Thank you for replying though. Maybe I'll find one somewhere.

More late model Yak-7 or 9s would be awesome to mod for carrier operations, perhaps a late war La-7 as well?
As far as bombers go, already the T model Il-2 in game, could be adapted maybe for the carrier use, Su-2 for dive bombers? A navalized Il-10 could start the basis for an add on of the in game Il-10 campaign (which personally I found a tiny bit lacking when it moved over to Manchuria....hardly any resistance at all from the Japanese)

For early war years, navalized I-153 or I-15?

With all of this, a Russian A/C would be nice to have in game....perhaps based on the Illustrious or Graf Zeppelin?

Gerrit, didn't the RN have several modern carriers employed in the Indian Ocean and in the Okinawa campaign in 1945? What if Clement Atlee decided to give the USSR a surplus RN carrier along with the nice Rolls Royce jet engine he gave - that actually ended up being the basis of the Soviet jet fighter industry??!!

In any event, the Yak could get airborne off an escort carrier and there were many, many of those around in 45-46.

On subject of fictional navalized, and appropriate for 46.....mig9, he 280 or me 262 ( whichever had better low speed handling) or he 162......better yet a naval go229 ;)
