Default If only we had a naval squadron Martlet

Yep, thats right there, as far as I can tell Grumman Martlets I (AKA Wildcat) were in the Battle of Britain. I know I can pretty much only dream...but how sweet would it be if we somehow got this bird.

4 .50 cals anyone?

oh...sources

The Battle of Britain is generally acknowledged to have occurred between summer and autumn of 1940. 804 Sqdn operated Gloster Sea Gladiators until October 1940, when they were re-equipped with Martlet I fighters. At that time the squadron operated out of RNAS Skaebrae in the Orkney Islands (northen Scotland). IMO there are other aircraft that could be added to the BOB scenario before the Marlet. eg. Fairly Battle, Gloster Gladiator, Westland Lysander , Heinkel He 59 C-2 (Air-Sea rescue).

No chance, as it's a Grumman built bird.

I'm sure the terms of the original settlement with Northrop-Grumman that keep their aircraft out of IL2 will apply here as well.

I definitely want to see a flyable Gladiator though.

shilla22, to make a very long drawn out story short, large amounts of cash would have to change hands for any more Grumman aircraft in the IL2 series.

Just let it rest.

It's a dead horse and no sense beating it any more.

I think someone who has the time to write to them, asking politely, for an explanation of their current policy on older intellectual property, 70+ years old tech ...it may have changed over the years

You think a lawyer cares about a few "gamers" when $$$ is the motive for this?


Go ahead and try and see how far you get. And please post the form letter you get from N-G here would you?

My point was a simple e-mail, would reveal if Grumman is still protecting their older intellectual property. They may not care about the use of such material in a game. Anyone interested in sending a e-mail, would probably get a fast reply.
