I love the Dauntless but are keen on Kate and Val too. 
I hope most for Catalina, Betty, B 26 , you know planes we likely not will get

Could see PBY and B-26 for this initial midway/coral sea project, but would Betty have a place in either of those battles. Certainly not Midway, but I don't know about Coral Sea

Anyone looking forward to flying about in one of these?

Yes!

I’m more looking forward to sneaking up underneath them in my Zero…but still…yes. Love that plane.

I do not remember any mention of Betty bombers at Midway or Coral Sea... 🤔

There is a flight of Betty's listed out of Wake island in the orbats but I'm not really sure what part they played in the battle

Betties were involved along with Nells in the Rabaul strike launched against Admiral Crace's Task Force 44 (TG 17.3), which was subjected to the infamous Repulse - PoW treatment during Coral Sea (but came out in a much better shape).

 

Cheers 🙂
