Can there be a map involving the American Volunteer Group, the Flying Tigers? Not much was said about this.

I am pretty sure there will be one eventually. Not sure if it is in the making yet or not though.

Just my 1/2 cent, But you need IJAAF to be correct.

While it is safe to say the AVG did fight the IJN at times, the vast majority of combat was fought against the IJAAF.

That would mean...

Ki-27 (Nate) Ki-43 Hayabusa (Oscar) Ki-44 Shoki (Tojo) Ki-45 Toryu (Nick) Ki-61 Hien (Tony) Ki-84 Hayate (Frank)

Ki-27 Type 97 heavy bomber (Sally) Ki-48 Type 99 light bomber (Lilly) Ki-49 Donryu (Helen) Ki-67 Hiryu

All you would really need is a Ki-43 Hayabusa, a Ki-61 Hien (TLB model?), and reskin a G4M Betty to a Ki-67 Hiryu.

That would give you the two most common fighters and a Jap bomber.
