I can't seem to identify what plane this is. Is this just fudged historically or is the design slightly wrong?

I see similar planes that while looking almost identical they do not have the angled wings like the corsair.

Similar ones I've seen are the Latécoère 298 or Loire models.

That's a Dewoitine HD.780 (D.520 adapted for floatplane use with an inverted gull wing and floats-1 prototype built).

There is a thread from 2016 (when the Dunkerque came out) with the info.

Much improved graphics evident from then to now.

I want to say it did also, but I no longer have my old screenshots.  I remember talking about wrong catapult aircraft and such years ago, i.e. WTH do we have Hellcats for catapult fighters.

 

The UI has changed a lot.

I googled Dunkerque seaplane, and this thread was the first item.  Somewhere on the second or third page was a reference to the old thread.
