One small request: since you are striving for native linguistic accuracy, do please spell the English words correctly for the British units at least - motorised vice motorized, mechanised vice mechanised. Blooming colonial debasement of the language...... :)

Pretty soon we are going to have something about troops rallying around the colours :D It will be a large step forward in flavour events :D

On a serious note, I will be updating all of the naval models, if there are any that have really been bugging people, let me know so I can get that fixed. The number of naval models is going to be making a large increase so I will probably come looking for opinions about submarine models and classifications. MDow

DB D1A Susie (prewar DB)
DB D3A Val (prot: Jan 1938)
TB B7A Grace (prot: May 1942)
NAV N1K1 Kyofu (prot: Dec 1941) - the seaplane precursor to the powerful Shiden land-based fighter.
INTFGT N1KJ Shiden (prot: Dec 1942) - entered service in 1944 and became a respected adversary for the US pilots.
NAV H6K Mavis (prot: July 1936) - the mainstay Japanese seaplane of WW2 with bomb and torpedo capacity.
INTFGT Ki61 Hien (prot: Dec 1941) - using an engine copied from the German DB601 inverted-vee engine it was Japan's only inline engined fighter, useful as a high altitude interceptor.
INTFGT Ki100 (prot: Feb 1945) - developed from the Ki61 Hien body but with a radial engine this, the IJA's best fighter, was developed too late to make a significant difference in the war.
ESCFGT Ki45 Toryu (prot: Jan 1939) - entered service autumn 1942 and served in ground-attack/anti-shipping and night-fighter roles.
INTFGT A5M Claude (EntServ: Jan 1937) - precursor to the Zero this Early monoplane fighter was a completely indigenous Japanese carrier fighter.
INTFGT A6M Reisen (prot: 1940) - the legendary Zero fighter.

MB G4M2 Ishikkiro (EntServ: May 1943) - 'improved' with better aerodynamic surfaces, additional fuel capacity and heavier armament though all of this was at the cost of reduced agility. A final upgraded version (U) included more armor and self-sealing tanks but this last one came into service too late.
INTFGT J2M Raiden (prot: Mar 1942) - designed as the 'land-based successor' to the Zero it was not very much better than its predecessor but it was the best point-defense interceptable available to Japan at the time of its completion.

LB Ki30 Ann (prot: Feb 1937) - served mainly in China where lack of fighter opposition allowed it to continue generally unmolested. An undistinguished aircraft, withdrawn by 1942 for crew training.
ESCFGT Ki46I Dinah (prot: Nov 1939) - excellent performance and handling as a high-altitude recce plane though armed with only one rearward MG, this plane was virtually impossible to intercept in the early years of the Pacific War.
ESCFGT Ki46III Dinah (EntServ: Nov 1944) - adapted from the Ki46I to a high altitude interceptor to counter 'B-San' and armed with forward and upward firing cannon it proved disappointing in actual combat due to poor climbing performance.
HB Ki49 Donryu (prot: Aug 1939) - designed to replace the Ki21 it was not very successful and in the end only supplimented its predecessor.
HB Ki67 Hiryu (prot: Dec 1942) - the finest Japanese bomber for either army or naval air forces with high performance, good defensive firepower, adequate weapon load and a sturdy body.
MRFGT Ki43 Hayabusa (1939?) - the most advanced fighter of the IJ Army Air Force.

A very interesting list, some of your choices for what planes to use and what not to use is interesing, I admit not the same choices I would have made (more emphasis on domestically designed aircraft), very detailed though! :D

One small request: since you are striving for native linguistic accuracy, do please spell the English words correctly for the British units at least - motorised vice motorized, mechanised vice mechanised. Blooming colonial debasement of the language...... :)
In fact, could every English-speaking nation other than the US and possibly Canada be returned to actually speaking English rather than American English?

Thanks :)

It's actually from an aviation pocketbook I have, Warplanes of WW2. There are some entries missing, the ones from the other pocketbook, Biplanes, Triplanes and Seaplanes. These at least, aside from domestic industry, and realistically how many countries had a strong enought industry to produce their own stuff (a reason why I was pushing for a 'tech' for an established arms, vehicle, aircraft, maritime industry) and most would have to buy outside. This at least lists some of the countries that 'bought' outside as well as other options for bigger countries.

Best regards,
Richmond

Cool! I Have several sources on aircraft if you would like any help, I have a small pocket book by Jane's of Aircraft of WWII, I have the Illustrated Directory of Fighters (which is just fighters if you couldn't tell from the the name :) ) and lastly the Encyclopedia of World Aircraft which has entries on 3000 civil and military aircraft from the Wright brothers to the present.

Actually many countries tried their hand at making their own aircraft, they usually never got off the prototype stage and many of them wheren't too good but hey, they gave it a shot! :D

When CORE v0.7 will be released, with his new classes of aircraft, every suggestion about improving the model list (that is already very big, trust me!)will be very appreciated! Expecially finding some aircraft names for all the very minor country of the game!

I see some similarities to Ukrainian, especially in the pekhota, konnica names. Russians usually use different names for those kinds of units.

But it's totally OT, I'm not the linguist... :D

Hmm, if Halibut is lurking here he will explain it ;) :p
