Why am I getting flashbacks from War Thunder?

Super nice. Love the detail. Also, it's interesting to note that the onboard gun turret positions were not just to fend off other attacking aircraft, but could also certainly engage ground targets as we see here!

-rock and roll music intensifies as Bomb-bay doors open and the planes line up in sight of the Japanese convoy, dropping more than 3 tons of bomba on the freighter ship as they turn into a cloud of smoke and schrapnel and debris.... -

Original boat planes were not useful, let's swap em out with pretty much a Upgunned B-25 XD genius.

Great image. Terrific detail. Just one question. What is the top turret shooting at?

Beautiful camera shot.

Wow nicely done. If there’s footage of this raid, I’d love to see it.

Named for Thelma Miller, wife of the pilot and VB-109 Commander. I have read but don't remember the title of Commander Miller's book. This a US Navy version that did strike and maritime recon in the Central Pacific in WW II against Japan.

Before Convair came up with the Privateer.

The Privateer came out in 1945. Then was followed by the Lockheed Neptune in the 1950's, the Lockheed Orion in the 1960's, and now the Boeing P-8A.

Actually, the PB4Y Privateer became available after late '43/ early '44.

I stand corrected. The P-8A's are the Posidans ( my spelling is a little weak).

cullyferg2010's avatar

But you got the intent across. And if I remember what I've read, the Privateer soldiered on until 1950.

I think you are right. The Neptunes covered the 1950's. The Orions started in the 1960's and are, I think, still in service in elint role.

Some Orions are still doing duty as ASW craft as well as hurricane hunters.

Awesome work! These bombers are war winners in the Pacific. :clap:

As well as in the Mediterranean and Europe.

Could fly higher, farther and carry a bigger bomb load than its Boeing cousin.
