Did the Walrus have a machine gun ? Without one it would be rather useless.
1 in the front ant 1 in the back. (make it a plane for 3 or 4 person)
couldnt it be poslible to ad a Catalina or a Short Sunderland to the Rheinuebung map...?? this planes can trow Depth Charge,do recon misions (to find u-boats) or SAR misons: Search And Rescue...wen i play Rheinuebung, and a alied ship is sunk.. ther are a lot peaple dying becaus the isnt a rescue vessel (only te 2 smal lcvp)...but most of the time that isnt good enougf : ore some noob that dont rescue his mates! if ther isnt eney alied vessel in the area it should be usfull if ther is a fast big plane ..who can pic up surviors ...and bring the to a save spot or 1 of ther own vessels.. if it is posible to put in 4 or 6 seat 4 surviors it sould be fantastic :D

They should complete this one, and put it in Battle of Brittain or bombing the Reich, to pick up survivors out of the water. ( i know parachutes were disabled in BTR, but you can still survive some water crashes )
That is what the real ones amongst other did too, besides flying recon patrols, having limited bombs to attack ships or attacking submarines with depthcharges.
It was called "fliegendes stachelschwein" because flying at wavetop height with all the mg turrets it carried it wasn't a perticularly easy target to bring down....in fact, the attacker was at high risk going down himself and several german fighters and fighterbombers went down trying to attack it, thus the aircraft gaining that nickname.
