At the same time the Kawanishi H6K was going into service in 1938 the Navy ordered the development of a larger, longer-ranged patrol aircraft. The result was the H8K which was one of the best if not the best flying boat of World War II. It was in service from 1942 till the end of the War during which it earned deep respect among Allied aircrews. Unlike many other Japanese airplanes "Emily" could take quite a beating and its defensive armament was pretty impressive as well.



Available in FHSW will be the main variant H8K2 which had improved engines and armament. Possible bomb load configurations are

  • 2x 800 kg bomb
  • 8x 250 kg bomb
  • 16x 60 kg bomblet
  • 2x torpedo

So the Japanese airforce in FHSW finally receives a four-engined bomber with a high bombload that can close the gap to the B-17 a bit.



It's equipped with an Air to Surface Vessel (ASV) radar which means for FHSW you have the rare ability to detect ships and submarines from air. Besides the pilot five seats are available and each one has a 20 mm gun. Even late American fighters can get into trouble when attacking a fully crewed "Emily"! There's no defensive armament on the underside of the plane so it's the safest to attack from below.



Look forward to version 0.6 to fly this magnificent airplane!

This is one of the best multiplayer games I've played to date. It just feels right. In this game, unlike in several others I've played, no one gun is clearly superior to the others. It's all about finding a weapon you're comfortable with and getting good with it. (My personal favorite's the Thompson) Everything's been integrated into the game so well. From tanks and airplanes to jeeps and half-tracks, everything pretty much handles the way you'd expect it to. My only issue with this game is the absence of the M1 Garand. Certainly the "rifle that won the war" should be featured in a game that so accurately portrays a World War II battlefield. Other than that, the game is simply great. I'm particularly thankful for the bots, because I'm not always going to be on a LAN. Anyway, it's a game I can highly recommend for any fan of the FPS genre.
