My guess- they were solving a problem that wasn't all that important and didn't need solving, while adding production time.  They only made a few thousand of the helms, and the idea was never explored again.

And why such design was discontinued?

It's the M18 'cut out' helmet.  There's various reasons given for why this was done, the most likely is that it was to make it easier to hear in combat/less likely to cause ear damage from reverberation of explosions.

General_Bradly of IDF mod exported it for us. Not sure where he got it I think he said it was sitting on his HDD for ages. It was originally a 50k poly model, but he got it down to 30k. It is one of the nicer aircraft we have next to our Sikorsky H19 transport helicopter.

Yeah, the Night Fighter texture variant I had made, and it is my first full aircraft retexture ever, so there are many areas needing improvements. The Night Fighter variant we have is strictly a Korean War livery, but the WW2 era texture is pretty good.

I could pass it along to you if you would like to look at it?

I should also mention, CMP was going to get this regardless since they have been helping us borrow stuff for BFK and my new Battlefield 1943 recreation mod where we are recreating the console exclusive game in BF2. But I was just hoping we might get the main FH2 leaders attention here and the modding Gods might bless us with being able to get usage of the Corsair, since it was such an instrumental aircraft in Korea.  :P

It could def be used on multiple maps for CMP. It looks much better than the FH1 port imo. The cockpit model looks nice as well. Just needs a bit better re-texture imo.



who made it? was it bought from a site?

Yeah, it is a good idea on Meuse. It is a really fun map. I had lots of fun flying the mustang on it last time I played.

I think the only 2 maps FH2 could use it on is Bastogne and Meuse River since apparently the Army Air Force didn't start receiving them until September of 1944.

It could be cool on Meuse tho since it's a semi-fictional map and the planes are meant for close-support ground attack purposes.

My thoughts as well. It has something strange going on by the ears

Yeah, he can't give permission he said. So I figured it is worth a shot here. Also, the A-26 Invader was in the European theater, and was noted for being able to turn inside of a BF109 and was very fast. So I think it would fit well in Europe better than Pacific maybe, since it seems to have only gotten very little use there.

I have been trying to get contact information for PointBlank for a long time now, like email or something at least.

If we can;t be granted permission to use the Corsair we will just get one exported, but it would save a lot of work if we shared stuff. I would love to see the A-26 in FH2 since it is a highly detailed plane, and has a really nice cockpit.
