are we gona be able to spot ships from farder away, like in aep or fb, the ships just pop up from no where, if u are flying at 3k, u need to be over the ships for them to show up, and when u tray to bomb run ,. level bomb run, it is realy hard as they pop up at close distance... and u almost have no much time to aim, and set ur bombsight... i hope u guys already notice this, pacific been a ship theater, having this kind of problem would be realy annoying for spoting and level bomb run ports, or even pearl harbor

it would be nice if the ships had a wake trail that streched of for a few miles like in real life, maybe even the irradecent glow that you got at night in the moon light from the wake, now that would rock, it would make the ships easier to spot also.

That was some of the best flying I've seen yet! right up to the part where you got killed.

It looks through the brevity - that Luthier intends to improve the resolution and increase visual range for us.. I like 'Cudas' thing too about the nightime wake phosphorus thingy majigglerism.. like in Apollo 13 that scene Tom Hanks has describing just that..and finding the carrier in the dark.
