Hey Shockwave should include this Japanese bomber as it was extensively used in that conflict plus it was made in good numbers.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_G3M
I'll second that Scott!
Here is an excerpt from a piece I have been writing as a motivating overview for who-ever I would be advising among the programmers on SHOCKWAVE's Team....
The Japanese sometimes used vector sights for low level bombing .
... Indeed, the Japanese used no bombsight at all on some of their raids over China, (according to some accounts.)
Other sources aver that the Japanese sometimes used a "hand held tube"
(This leads me to believe that they may have sighted through a "TOOTOO" similar to the one I, as a precocious child of two, invented . ... by adaptring the cardboard core from a roll of bathroom tissue .
I used my TOOTOO alternatelly as a telescope and as a musical instrument, which was played by carolling "Tu-Tu" through it, as I paraded around the room.
If the Japanese DID use it as a bombsight, it is probable that they also used it to trumpet triumphant TU -TU's after a sucessful bombing run.
Should this prove to be the case, it is further indication that I was quite advanced for my age... for I spoke a smattering of Japanese!
"TUTU" in my then limited vocabulary, obviously meant either "Bombs Away" or "Banzai!". (I am no longer sure which, for now my physical age far exceeds my mental, and senile dementia is looking over my shoulder.)
Spesaking seriously, Both Jon and i have been searching diligently for information about the bombsights used by the Japanese bombers that challenged the AVG in China, and we are not finding much.
(Other than the information I have set forth above.)
If bombsights are desired for the program and if I can get more data on the Japanese bombsights used at that time in China, I can probably help the team to develop something better than a "Tu-Tu" for us to use when we bomb the "Tigers" base.
