Default Sb2u

Vought SB2U-3 also served with the French as V-156F

Here is cockpit from surviving SB2U-2

That's effectively two different cockpits because the V-156F and SB2U-3 had different instruments, crew equipment, and guns.

Does Vought designed and manufactured aircraft circumvent the whole Northrop-Grumman issue? Apparantly N-G bought Vought in 1994. However in 2000 The Carlyle Group bought Vought from N-G.

If there is no N-G issues the Vought OS2U Kingfisher would be a cool edition to fill the gap of the lack of an western allied floatplane.

My wish list is just about every plane in ww2, flyable.

No, seriously. Just the Ju-88C6. Hopefully with cockpit.

It depends on the exact wording of the consent decree, but I'm guessing that Vought aircraft are officially off-limits. That would explain the lack of improvements to the Corsair series over the years.

That means that, for American catapult-launched float planes, our only options are the horrible Curtiss SO3C Sea Mew or the reliable, if obsolescent, Curtiss SOC Seagull.

You are most likely right.

well, a US floatplane would be nice. But luckely it's not at the top o my wishlist, the Blenheim, Wellington, Swordfish, SeaHurricane and the D.520 are.

I'm also looking forward to the MDR-2 and the BoB-era Spitfire.
