This is absolutly not a whine, I am just asking for something which deserves to be in the game. If anybody is able to model a B-17 (interior) for exemple, please go ahead, I am sure that a lot of people will appreciate a plane like that . I am bored of flying he111s with 3 or more players and get so easly shot down one after the others , seems like we are the favorite threat of newbs waiting above their airfields in fw190s with mk 103s. With heavy bomber we will surely have more chances to succed, Those 7,** mm bullets in he111 or Tb3 are almost ineffective over fighter who will most of the time shot you down before they be close enought to be vulnerable. Please tell me that a least one big bomber gonna be flyable, If you are not convince juste fly a he111, or tb3, you ill see, bombers rocks !! (If you fly them seriously, and learn to bomb /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )

I concur, the He-111 tends to drop from the sky relatively easy, but on the request for some bigger bombers, I guess they need someone to make them first, I know the Ju-88 is under development, I'm not sure about other types.

I agree. The more multi-station bombers, the better. I believe that the Pe-2, Lancaster bomber, B-17 and B-25, etc should all be included in the game in order to add even more variety. I'm quite sure that the Ju-88 is also comming soon (possibly even in a nightfighter variation).

Hi fellas:

1. If the enemy uses heavy weapons like Mk108/103, I am afraid no heavy bomber can really stand a chance...specially if alone and taking off. If they were concentrated in a formation of 20+, that would be different...but so would be in planes like He-111 or Pe-2...

2. Heavy bombers cannot really deffend themselves on their own...you still need other bombers (compact formation) and escorts...that is just what happened in the war, isn't it?

3. The He-111 was an easy target, specially if in small formations. I agree the heavier variants would be better suited for the sim and late war scenarios (we may get them in the end), but it will never be able to survive heavier attacks on planes armed with large calliber cannons...no plane can, no B-17, Pe-8, b-25 or b-29. Those were bomber killers, after all...

I like heavy bombers and what they stand for, the idea behind, but they will never be what you want them to be. To add to this, I believe you are better off with medium bombers liek A-20, Pe-2 or Ju-88. But, remember also they requite LOTS of TIME to model them...it is just a lot of work. Ju-88 will come, but it is a gigantic task.

Hi all,

Yes i agree wiht Xanty buht we bomber pilots just ask for more flyable bombers in this great game.
We get so many new Fighters and the are all great buht to play online campains or offline campain as bomber pilots we are so limited to a handfull Ground atack and bombers.
And except the IL2 and stuka the are early type war plane`s.
Nohting agains the fighters and jets and Rocket models buht this game just need more Ahter type`s of flyable plane`s
Like the PE2 , Tu 2 , Ju 188 , Ju 88 , and many more.
To be able to play campains , Coops missions wiht more viriation on plane settings.
Its nice to fly in the comet and try to shoot A.I bombers down buht after 2 or 3 time`s its boring.
Exemple how many time`s u see the Be-2 be used incoop`s / campains? or to have a Zero wihtout the maps were the were fighting?
We like to have a total war not a big DF.
This game is great for Fighter pilots buht poor for Bomber pilots.
So please 3e party bilders and Oleg and his Team , try to give us more flyable bombers / ahter type of model`s than Fighters.
This game disure it.

Agreed, medium bombers are the most likely addition to FB because they would add more historical realism and take less work to model than a heavy bomber.

At the risk of repeating myself; This forum needs to have a place where 3rd party modelers and the Maddox Team communicate in public to discuss current and future work. This will eliminate duplication, prevent missed oportunities and encourage new development.
