I think M3 plans to make an Essex class for their F4U and F8J so hopefully the A-4 mod will work with that.

M3's Essex will be in WW2 configuration:













... the Skyhawk flew from the updated Essex, with angled deck ... the Stennis would be a better fit:

... and speaking of the Stennis and the A4.

Sorry couldn't pass up the segue... Here is a link to a video that I made to showcase the A4 mod and some of things that you can do with it. This video (which features some video footage of the Stennis) is actually a review of some other videos I have been making that show the kinds of missions you can fly with the A4.

Take a look. I'd love some feedback. I'd also be happy to hear suggestions for the subjects of future videos.

You have very good videos, I’ve learned a lot of details from them .. could you do one about landing on the Stennis?

I can recover on the Hornet and on the Tomcat with no problem, but the A4E is being very hard on me ... I always explode when touching down

I really like your videos Sidekick, but as someone else suggested I think you need to hit CTRL+Y twice to kill the unit bar on your external shots, your great widescreen format is spoilt by the bar at the bottom of the viewing area.

Hmmm... OK. I will think about that. The dirty little secret is that I use the time code on the screen to sync the video to the mission time line. I actually make several recordings of the mission and then cut them together. I can probably find another way to do that. Appreciate the feedback.

@Rudel_chw. Ok I will have to practice. I have only managed it once, and it felt like it was more by luck than design!

Oh .. no need, I don't want to intrude on your free time, just tought that it was only me having difficulty with the carrier recovery ... maybe it is harder than other aircrafts because of the SFM?

No Worries. Something I have been meaning to work on for some time. Glad to hear that it's not just me that finds it a challenge.

There seems to be an issue if one touches down too early on the deck. I found I'm most successful if I basically crash it down, yes really, after the first wire.
I made it my mission once to trap 10 in a row, which I managed after a couple of hours. I have a track and TacView somewhere. Don't remember how many traps/misses I got eventually, but quite a lot. I stopped when a got the 10th in a row, was quite tired at that point.
Just to be clear. No "recovery procedures". Just got it down.
