Some of u new might not know this but......
U can fly as a parasitefighter hanging under the wing of a Tb3 bomber, or as a bomber with parasites, called "SPB" (This also work in DF= dogfightservers online.)

Or fly a fw190 attached to a Ju88 bomber filled with explosives. (Online I think this only works in coop's not DF, not sure though)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The option is available in single missions

Parasite (SPB):
1 go single mission
2 choose russian and the mission "Zveno-SPB" among the planenames
3 now u can choose to be the parasitefighter or the tb3 bomber with parasite.
4 U have to assign a key for "attach/detach aircraft" in controls, u can do this ingame also by hitting "ESC" then "controls" when mission is running.

---------------------------------------------

If u go to german side u can fly the "mistel"
choose "Fw190 F-8 (mistel) N1" to drop the mistel i belive its same key as above "attach/detach aircraft".

have fun..... and thnx for the pic olli http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

or... you can donwload my free program UQMG at www.uberdemon.com (http://www.uberdemon.com) that makes it extremely easy to create missions using not only the SPB and Mistel (in fact you can create a mission in second with multitudes of these flying composite groups) but also Tug/Glider combos in which you can fly the He-111 towing a glider. V-1s are also available in every map.

Think of a QMB with ALL features of FB/AEP but that is much easier to use than the FMB, and it does all the hard work for you in seconds so that you can go on enjoying FB instead of building missions, and it creates all at one time an SP, a Coop and a DF arena for you.

How does this work in dogfight servers? Besides having the planes available on the map?

i don't know but we've done it on MANY occations in DF servers. the sad thing is that on a great number of the early war and early eastern front DF servers this gets over looked.
if you can get 3 tb3's in the air with the i -16's attched you can just reak total havock in a early DF server. lol not to metion it's a real hoot.

In DF Servers, mistels do not work (actually you can fly the mistel ju88 from outside view) but the SPBs do work.

One player has to be in the proper TB3, of course. Up to two players in the I-16 Type 29 SPB model need to taxi up to the TB3 (under the wing, near the attachment masts/cables) and then press the Attach/Detach command - wham, you are attached to the TB3.

Now the old Tupolev pilot can take off... and off you go. Dont press the Attach/Detach command again until you are well into the air, otherwise you will fall into the ground...

(BTW the Attach/Detach command is not done by default, but I find that assigning Alt-Z does the job.)

The new tb3 must have modified engines.On take off with 2 I-16s under the wings it just about jumps off the ground.It takes off in a very short distance.Also the I-16s can carry bombs as well as the tb3 itself.

I also tried for about 3 hrs to reattached in mid air.(mid air refueling)I never had any success although I saw some squad memembers say they did it.
