US Army Air Corp

Not sure what you mean..the AAF was the designation for what is now the Air Force. I believe it was separated from the Army in 47 maybe 48...Think Truman desegregated the Military in 48 also..

Regardless, the game would look better if there was a  USAAF presence

There are US skins for the P-38 and P-40 in the offline/practice version of the game, has been for years.

I agree we need a US Army Air Corps (technically the combat arm of the USAAF, btw) presence, ingame.  As they were THE largest air force in the war, it's wrong to not have them represented at all.  The American P-40 skin we have is TERRIBLY wrong (Checkertails NEVER flew P-40s in Europe), and the P-38 was phased out early, but they're better than not having ANY American air presence in the game.  Having a few of our RDP bombers reskinned as US would be a welcome addition as well.  I mean, it's not like American bombers had ANY effect on the war, but still.  ;)

 

I really feel that, if we DID have P-47s (starting at the end of '42) and P-51s (starting late '43), we'd have a LOT more air-oriented players joining the game on both sides.  Flight simmers are VERY underrepresented as part of the playerbase and could bring in much needed money for the Rats.
