    we started from f29. than f31 was captured by the enemy. while climbing to 6km hdg 315, we saw a CV. After reup f31 (from red-capture) we saw no con, until it was closed by our forces again.
    than we went to the cv, to hold f31 clear.
    the only con there was staying near acks. some minutes before f31 reopens, we went back there.
    we spoted one con after the other and engaged them. the spit took many small hits and turned over two human acks.
    before the spit was killed, we were spotted by a high f4u and another spit.
    i just evaded and punski cleared my 6. but because of extreme low fuel, we had to climb home. one CV was killed near f29, another was shooting on f29, while we were landing. but we had luck to land undamaged.

    I think A-8 represents A-9 better. Externally they are identical. A-9 is somewhat better performer.

    Yes it's about as fast as 190d-9 at deck. But considerably heavier than both. And alt performance isnt that great either.

    Though would be nice to see A-9 modeled in FH.

    Do you have any data for it? I have none.
    We will have A-6, maybe A-2 in FH. Then only major model missing would be A-9.
