INTRODUCTION

In the mid and late thirties, Lockheed produced several small airliner designs, namely the Model 10, 12 and 14, the latter then being subjected to a feasibility study to make it an armed reconnaissance aircraft. With the war looming up in Europe, a British Purchasing Commission crossed the Atlantic for a shopping tour which lead to the manufacture and swift delivery of a first batch of 250 Model 14 based Hudson Mk.I light bombers. Many followed in different variants, sub-variants and evolutions, the details of which are beyond the purpose these Atlantic Air Combat™ background notes. Suffice it to say that while the Ventura evolved from the Hudson, it was larger and heavier, and so was the succeeding Harpoon, both being based on the larger Model 18. Only a brief, deliberately incomplete, summary of post-war users is proposed here. Besides some details assembled on our WWII.Vintage page, interrested readers would find more comprehensive data with Joe Baugher (see Index) and naturally with U.S.Warplanes to only mention these two sources.  A Production Summary is also proposed further below.

To make a long story short, the relatively light and agile attack aircraft the Hudson initially was, evolved into a less agile but punchy maritime patrol aircraft, as it was more and more used in this role.  Hudsons (25) and Venturas (6) are credited with the sinking of several U-boats (eg: U-174,  U-591, U-615, U-604, U-279 in 1943, and U-761, or U-960 in 1944) but not all these successes were in European waters, as one of the A-28 delivered to the Forca Aerea Brasileira crippled U-199 off Rio de Janeiro in July 1943, allowing a fellow Catalina to finish it later.  But if Hudsons and Venturas/Harpoons could bite, so could their prey, and several were shot down by German submarines: RAF Hudson AE591 off the Baleares (by U-565, 1942), RAF Hudson AM638 off Algiers (by U-73, 1943), RAF Hudson AM781 off Oran (by U-453, 1943), but also SAAF Ventura 565 off Cyprus (by U-453 again, 1944), or USN PV-1 Venturas 29916 and 29909 off New York (both by U-566, 1943).

The Origin

In its original airliner iteration, the Lodestar was offered with various cabin configurations and alternative powerplants : either two Pratt & Whitney 9 cylinder 875 hp R-1690 S1E2-G Hornet (L18-07), or 14 cylinder 1200 hp R-1830 S1C3-G Twin Wasp (L18-08) or 9 cylinder 1200 hp Wright R-1820-G205A Cylone engines (L18-56).  For instance, South African Airways selected the 18-08 variant with accommodation for 12 passengers and a crew of four (pilots, radio operator and a cabin attendant).  The maximum passenger capacity of the type was 18, rarely used by airliners but the standard fit for the military version, albeit in a crude manner as illustrated below.

IN ATLANTIC AIR COMBAT™

The Nemrod  is part of the WWII vintage aircraft collection.  It will be referred to as the P1V2A15 Nemrod  and will be represented with several of its historical operators, plus some cheat ones.  All will be fictionally upgraded to radar equipped PV-2 standards, donned with a coupleof "modern" weapons and be offered near-fighter agility.  While principally intended for maritime patrols (read: anti-shipping, anti-submarine warfare, armed reconnaissance and search-and-rescue operations), the type will naturally be available as a vintage attack/bomber.  As such, Brazizilian aircraft will be operating from various Southern Argentinian runways to challenge forces present in the Falkland Islands.  Similarly, and according to circumstances, Portuguese aircraft either operate from Portimao, or from Dakar, or from one of the other mentioned locations :

    1080 nmi Madeira = 2160 nmi
    1545 nmi Azores = 3090 nmi
    1550 nmi Portimao = 3100 nmi

Military Transport and Airliner Variants

The military transport and airliner variants will be represented by a single type, thus only differenciated by their skin color : either camouflaged when standing for the C-60A or in various AAC™ airline colors when standing for the L-18 airliner.  These will be referred to as the M060A10 and the 218L100 respectively.  The M060A10 will be available for cargo and passenger transport missions, as well as for paratroop drops and liaison purposes.  The 218L100 is intended for background scenery (scheduled airliner flights) and for the benefit of non-combat flying amateurs.

Operators

As shown in the table above, operators essentially refer to historical ones, for which the service life of the Ventura/Harpoonn is artificially lengthened.  There are however a couple of deeper cheats :

Ireland

Only operated a single Hudson during war time.  In AAC™, Ireland, allegedly gains its airframes from Italy (bombers) and the Netherlands (transport)

Portugal Is the country justifying the presence of the Harpoon/Nemrod.  Portugal apparently never operated the transport variant but did transform two of its three PV-2D Harpoons into (VIP) transport aicraft.  In AAC™, Portugal allegedly gains its transport airframes from Netherlands

BOMB LOADS

Most of the litterature about the Hudson/Ventura/Harpoon sort of agree on their respective internal bomb capacities, and these are referred to in the Aircraft Variants & Specification table further below.  There are however more weapons at stake than these usual references.

Mk24 mine

It is never mentioned.  It is assumed it is because of the high secrecy surrounding what actually was the first ASW homing torpedo, sort of creating the reverse situation surrounding the Spitfire : while the Hurricane should have taken the main share of the credit, the war propaganda of the time made the Spitfire a legent, a tale that still sticks today.  The Fido torpedo being above top secret, that secrecy still lingers today.

Sea mines A weapon never referred to.  Could it be because mine laying missions were less glamorous ?  Then, the Pilot Notes doesn't mention them neither...  Having sait that, these were laid by the thousands during the war, why not by the Venturas/Harpoons ?  The addition of the 550.lb Mk19 is assumed here as a plausible cheat - the post-war 550.lb Mk50-Mod.1 could be another option.
Depth charges Only one 325 lb ASW bomb (depth charge) type is usually mentioned, likely the 325.lb Mk.17.  It is assumed the succeeding 350.lb Mk47 and the 650.lb Mk49 could have been possible
Soviet weapons With the type associated with Cuba, one might imagine it (could have had) operated Soviet rather than American/British weapons....

So, these forgotten  weapons are marked as plausible in the below table.   More could be added (and have been examined in the accompanying drawings), like the post-war Mk34 ASW torpedo, but they don't add much so they are unlikely to be carried on with in the game.  The table thus shows both historical referrences and (potential) game cheats to set them in perspective - these are easy to spot and the table offers access to various illustrations in support of this summary.
