    Swoop. You are always welcome. My server is open to ALL EAF. We had Starfire, Redundant, Mikke, Mram and myself yesterday. We tried fighting the various Jap models we will encounter and those flying Jap made a running narrative of the strengths and weaknesses of the various planes. Good fun session over all.

    I did discover that the F4U-1C rocks!!

    Not to rain on your parade, but you shoulden't get used to that particular model. It wasen't introduced into combat before Okinawa 1945 and only 200 was produced.

    Compared to the total number of F4U-1D variants it is less than 5%.
    Vought F4U-D - 1,685
    Goodyear FG-1D - 1,997
    Brewster F3A-1D - 735
    --------------------------
    Total 4,417
