For the 335, I was thinking fighter-bomber, as well, which is why I called out the A1. The ease of handling due to the engines being on the centerline and, essentially, offering no net torque coupled with incredible speed and roll-rate would have made a wicked fighter and bomber...from what I've read.
For the J7W, it's obviously an interceptor, but it seems to stand out in two ways. First, it was allegedly going to be very nimble/maneuverable...different from many interceptors...so maybe effective against bombers and fighters. Second, the sheer amount of firepower from 4 30mm cannons seems like something worthy of attention.
Hm. The J7W would be a bit niche in an already crowded field, but I'll see what I can do.
Just dropping this here to remind me where I was on IJN MTB work...
RE: IJN MTBs. I've looked at the T1. I get the desire for an eary-war model, but - not only would it be class-limited to 3 - the card would be functionally identical to the Thai No. 6 Torpedo Boat card I've already given Thailand. Since most venues allow Thai/IJN mixing, I don't think there's a need.
I'm looking at an alternatives. The T35 and T51 are both contenders.
All right. The much-requested IJN MTB. I went with the Type-51 as the best model... it was essentially patterned after the German S-Boat. Her top speed was 29 kt, so I gave her speed 2, while retaining High Speed Evasion for her manueverability. For a smaller/faster boat, the IJN can always use the No.6 MTB card that I did for Thailand... which was basically equal to their T1 MTB.
Now a little saurkraut. This is the Do.335 "Pfeil" (Arrow), a late-war fighter-bomber that was incredibly fast. It was a "push/pull" propeller arrangement, and generally a badass. Like most late-war German Wunderwaffen, though, it was too late and produced in too few numbers to sway the tide.
