Well, the search didnt come up with a thread about this for FH2. This was an American Catapult launched aircraft, capable of doing 164MPH. 2 crew, pilot and observer.

Armament was 2 M1919 Browning .30-06 machine-guns and 650 pounds of depth charges, or 200 pounds of bombs.

This aircraft was RARELY land based, only known to takeoff from land by the Australian Air Force. More info, check this link: OS2U Kingfisher

Nice. It would be good for the Americans to get a new Battleship-borne Aircraft. Especially since we don't need to use the POW as the only US Battleship in the entire war. "Why yes, Little Johnny, the Prince of Wales did fight at the Battle of Saipan, nearly 3 years after it sunk."

We'd indeed need US battleships before needing US battleship-carried planes...:p
