  2. A turbocharged version was indeed developed, the XF4U-3, but it never went into production. A better high altitude performance was not required at this stage of the war and the turbocharger over no benefits over the super charged F4U-4 at lower altitudes.
  3. In 2015 when the Iwo Jima map was conceived Nevada wasn't even released. Nobody thought about a Marianas map back then. So much has changed that I would be very surprised if this map is ever completed now.
  4. It still saw combat however, at the time of the Vietnam war. During the Soccer War in July 1969 between El Salvador and Honduras. Both sides used F4Us, El Salvador the F4U-1D and Honduras F4U-5s. France still used their F4U-7 in Algeria in the early 1960s.

    He 112

    I love the Heinkel high performance designs from the 19030ties. He 70, He 112, He 118, He 100, all beautiful planes with clean lines. Sadly they not never enjoyed the success they deserved.
  6. WW2 Marianas is going to be incredible! looks like the F4U release and the map will be close together.
  7. The antennas were tilted by 90° to be level with the flight deck. You can see this in the second photo (USS Boxer) in Rudel's post above from 2nd February 2021.
  8. Exactly. ED has already announced that they will do a WW2 version of the Marianas map. The F4U is almost finished now and M3L has shown screenshots of Japaneses ground assets they are working on. Thus all elements for a minimum viable Pacific scenario would be there if somebody makes a Zero. You have to start somewhere. I fully expect that F6F or Zero or both will be announced this year. Otherwise too many things like the Pacific Theater sub forum here or the Fw190A repainted as a Zero in the 2022 and beyond video wouldn't make any sense.
  9. My thoughts exactly. Also I presume that is the reason why they were showing the Fw190A painted as a Zero so prominently in the 2022 beyond video.
  10. Yes it did. In the last 45s you can see the system in action:
  11. They are the same shown here. https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/de/downloads/screenshots/572/
