Hi All!
i've a question about bomber!
at the moment people that want fly with bomber must be pilot,bomber and navigator at same time!!
this don't create problem's if you arrive over target freely from enemy fighters!
but if you are engaged become impossible make a good bomb run!
and if you want play the bomber with some comrade, your friend may only play th gunner!
with the next expansion, there is the possibilty of flight the bomber (he111 now, but b25 and ju88 in future) with a player pilot and a player bomber?????
with the possible option, if you flight the bomber alone, to change the control at the actual situation (the player is all bomber crew http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )
tnk all, Basola

yes the player is all that but if you get with a number of players the gunners cover each other and we normally have a lead player doing the navagating we also have other players that escort us along the way right now I am the CO of the 250th TBAP Heavy Bomber Squardon and are currenty looking for new Bomber Pilots if you are looking for a home look me up my msn is rjjetdoc31@comcast.net

it would be very nice to have a bomber position separate from the pilot

Good idea, using bombsight and controlling plane at the same time is too much work... I hope that there would be AI bomber on off-line too...http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

yes, i hope that the maddox team may separate pilot from bomber (if possible).
tnk you Jetdog31, but i'm already in a team (and i'm the only bomber http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif ).

my dream is that one day in Fb (or Bob ecc. ecc.) may be a separate game inside the game!
for the bomber a separate bomber control, i've think similar to B17 flyng fortress (you know thi game....wonderful), but with the possibility to co-operate with the normal game!
example, you play the in single player the bomber (and complex) carrer or fighter carrer.
in online game if you play the bomber mission, you play at this way!
the bombing mission are really long, so if you are crazy and want run all missin (take off, regroup ecc. ecc.)you play in a separate miss.
but when you pass in enemy zone and if mission of intercept are ready.....you enter into the other on-line player missions!
if no intercept mission are ready, you play all online mission with AI.
i don't know if is possible work at this way, but it is a beauty dream!

Yes, this is an issue I have mulled over myself, and been frustrated at, specially when level bombing in the Heinkel where any deviation in bank will cause the sight to reset (not good with fighters pinging you, and the target just coming up!!).

I use the auto leveller function quite a bit, but, with it you tend to lose altitude fairly quickly (it seems approx 5ft/sec?) so you have to keep a careful eye on the altitude and airspeed inputs, and make sure you are moving the crosshairs to keep on the target.

Having a position for another player to take the bombadier position would be amazing!!!!! I could concentrate on flying, and my mate can concentrate on bombing (and takes care of gunnery when not on the bomb run).

That leads me onto one other thing: ammo load for the gunners. It is meagre at best!! I don't know the specifics of ammo loads, but I am sure it was well into the thousands per gun on most medium-heavy bomber in WWII, which should last a lot longer than just a few seconds!!!!!!

Hopefully this is all fixed in the addon, or will be later.

And I really hope they consider adding a seperate bombadier position.
