how would you like to attack a B-17 formation with the current sniper gunners?

Think about it, 19 50 cal. rounds to your engine for every revolution your prop makes. . . . . no wonder they didn't have it for 1.0

I would love a B-17, I wish someone would ever make it flyable....

The hawk 75. Was that any good? It looks sortof like P47, but I realize its like 7 years older and has a 1000hp engine....still, was it THAT bad?

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.

About the Hawk 75/P-36 Mohawk, it's the original version of the P-40. By all accounts, it was a much better climber and aerobatic performer, but it lacked the straight ahead speed and dive of the Warhawk. When the RAF evaluated the Mohawk examples acquired right after the fall of France, they found it more maneauvrable than the Hurricane or Spitfire MK I, but more lightly armed (these were equipped with the four French 7.7mm MGs instead of the American armament of 2 X.50 and 2 X .30 MGs), and slower overall, especially in the dive, hence unsuitable for bomber interception.

They did comment on how well harmonized the controls were, and used them in SE Asia when the Japanese attacked, to some good effect. Certainly, the Finns and the French used them very effectively, and the French camo looks very cool on it.

The only American use of it in combat was at Pearl Harbor, when a number of them got into the air and engaged the Japanese, with mixed results, although the Hawaiian commands were considered essentially advanced training squadrons, manned by mostly green pilots.

"Here's your new Mustangs, boys. You can learn to fly'em on the way to the target. Cheers!" - LCOL Don Blakeslee, CO, 4th FG, March, 1944

Flying the B17 will be fun, but you had better be good at multi-tasking to man all those positions. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
