I always liked I-15.It's one of best looking planes ever ;-)

Here's another looker I've been tweaking the FM for - will include this one also with an update to the early WW2 SF2 FM package. An "early" Tony - Ki-60 and/or very early Ki-61 - model is by A-team and it took a while to rework the FM but I like the results - top speed about 560 kph @ 4500 m alt. Best climb around 350 kph, 13 m/s or so. Ailerons are okay above about 300 kph but horribly ineffective below 250 kph. Rudder is ok. Also avoid loops if your speed is less than about 300 kph, tends to spin out. Other peculiarities on the type - tends to "sink" if flying too slowly - rather than entering a typical stall. No wonder pilots didn't really like the Ki-60 prototypes and early Ki-61 batch, compared to the more pleasant Ki-43 ("Army Zero"). Having said that, it's a fast type for the early war and works just fine if you avoid tight dogfights with it. Good for slash-and-dash attacks.

Getting back little by little. But, I ran into an issue I didn't have before . Now all the B-24s (Pasko) are sitting on their butts. Any fixes?

Amariani: try adjusting the center of gravity on your B-24 Data.INI, moving it forward. This model has CGPosition=0.0,1.8,0.0, and it sits on the runway just fine.

it's not the player controlled units, it's  the game generated parked aircraft. been that way for years. but, i'd try adjusting the cg to

CGPosition=0.00,2.0,0.00

that what mine is for both pasko's 24D and 24J

be advised, in may change in-air handling when player flown. otherwise, i'd just ignore it

Absolutely right.  I'm doing the P-40B/Tomahawk next and had it on my mind while posting the Hurricane picture.

Got it fixed. 

Thanks for the catch.
