Kamikaze 0 20%

DEADLINE 28 JUNE 2020

Extra info

Cockpit has 0 mass and 0 drag (to provide Katana and M1 Garand with real sizes/weight)

No need for your vehicle to have been historical involved in Pacific War. Since I will allow fictional vehicles, that obviously never been there, I cannot refuse replicas either.
Vehicles can be military, auxiliary or support. If someone wants to build a Burma Railway (Death Railway) locomotive, is ok. Same for cargo ships, supply planes, trucks, maintenance or engineering vehicles. Those are really important in a war. A bomber will be useless without a refueling truck, right?
Your vehicle size, appearance, performance and role must be plausible. It will be nice to provide info in description about a real thing that resemble your build. To avoid any debate or misunderstanding. Otherwise i will choose, if your fictional fighter looks like P-38, i will compare it to P-38 and rate accordingly.

    [HERE is an Allies list] Major allies were US, China and British Empire. Also, URSS, Italy and Germany had limited involvement. [Still, Germany managed to sunk Australian Navy Pride, HMAS Sydney] so i will not start to debate percentages and importance.

    @Hedero since fictional vehicles are allowed, i cannot go nazi on replicas. So, the only rule is that your replica should be a ww2 plane. Designed and tested before ww2 ends. For fictional, it must be clearly a ww2 design. It must resemble/be inspired from a real design.
    @TheFantasticTyphoon i specified in the rules that US and Japan allies vehicles are allowed.

    @BogdanX Another question, is a cargo plane (US modern example: C-130) included in the supply subcategory below support?

    @BogdanX Hello, I have a suggestion. Maybe next time if you host a challenge, it's in the European or Atlantic theaters?

    @BogdanX Hey mate, I've been looking around and according to militaryfactory.com the CAC Boomerang was a part of the pacific war, I know it fought in New guinea as such but I'd just like to clarify if I can build and enter this aircraft.

    @TheXDimension32 i noticed your skills improved lately, so i welcome any entry of you. If you mean by dauntless the SBD dive bomber, that will be a nice variation from the P-51 invasion.
    @CRJ900Pilot On rudder is more complicated. Needs advanced research on its function. Some rudder tabs are used to compensate the propeller action, some to balance the plane based on payload and some as (anti)servo tabs. If you cannot find the right data, just make it a servo tab (it will move in the opposite direction of YAW).... so if the rudder moves right, the tab will move left.

    @BogdanX I'll probably do some work on the cannons and camo. I'm also making a dauntless that i might throw in too.
