Nicknamed “Catalina” this was a wonderfully designed flying boat. It was widely used for patrol and rescue operations.
Even after the end of the war, this masterpiece of a machine saw continued usage.


Capable of performing ASW on its own (similar to Ka-type Observation Autogyro).

Increases the range of fellow Land-Based Air Squadron planes, from +1 to +3 range depending on the base's unmodified range.

Although it is a scout which does not actually participate in Aerial Combat mechanics-wise, it is still included in the launching animation if other planes are launched.

When used alongside other planes in an LBAS, it can rescue some of them, saving some bauxite when resupplying (doesn't prevent loss of Plane Proficiency).
