Looking for stats on a P38 Lightning and OS2U Kingfisher for next game, battle of santa cruz. Also Fairey Barracuda, for game after that....:lol:

I thought the Barracuda was a hybrid dive/torpedo bomber. What is the reasoning behind giving it high level instead of accurate and reducing the number of dice? I'd take a few less dice but a better chance of a hit. Also it was woefully underpowered would that not give it a 5 target score?

It seems I forgot to alter the template I used. It should not have high level bomber.

This is what I found about the engines on wiki:
"Early Merlin 30-powered Mk 1 Barracudas were underpowered and suffered from a poor rate of climb."
"The later Mk II had a more powerful Merlin 32 with a 400 hp (300 kW) increase in power."
Since only 30 Mk1's were produced, I took the mk2/mk3 as current model since over 2500 of those were produced. Since it wasn't mentioned that the Mk2 was also woefully underpowered I assumed the problems of the mk1 were largely fixed with the new engine.

So should I go with a 5 target score and an attack of 6 with no special abilities?

I don't see any reason that the Mk2 Barracuda, with the improved engine, should be rated as vulnerable as say a TBD Devastator. So I'd just keep it at this:
