Hope you all had a safe and happy holiday season!

This update introduces the three Japanese battleship classes:

  • Fuso
  • Ise
  • Nagato

In addition, rear gunners have been added to those aircraft that were missing them along with support for custom campaign maps which now allow modders to start creating campaigns outside of the original Solomon Islands map area.

Finally, TMA parameters for calculating firing solutions have been added on an individual ship class basis to better represent their accuracy.

Version 1.08g4h1
