Battlefield: 1942 is a tactical first-person shooter set in World War II. It introduces combined arms tactics, using tanks and dive-bombers, submarines and carriers, and machinegun nests with AA-artillery. Every aspect of WWII warfare will be accessible to a player and his friends from an FPS perspective, and the ultimate goal is to win enough campaigns to win the war.

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!

I've heard that this can be played on Mac, is this possible?
If so, how do I do it? Would I need an emulator?

Do you have Windows 7? Had problems with that OS, and tried compatibility mode with Windows 98 and it worked (save for random crashes during loading of some maps).

You can also try to run it unmodded (vanilla Battlefield 1942), then go to Custom Game and launch mods from there and see if it works this way.
