USe Hyperlobby, ALmost all of the top servers use bomber sin the planeset.

The missions aim is for aeach side to destroy each others ground targets.

As for servers, it depends what settings you want. ALl these have Online mini-war style missions with bombers in the planesets and a 'bombing mission' to perform. Al have Axis vs Allies planesets with mostly historical missions.


Servers with Relaxed settings > Allow cockpit off, icons, Externals on, Padlock on, Map icon on -

Ukdedicated 1


Servers with Medium settings > Cockpit always on, friendly Icons only, Externals on,Padlock on, Map Icon on -

Ukdedicated 2


Servers with Medium to realistic-ish setttings > COckpit always on, Friendly Icons, No padlock, No Externals, Map icon on, close Enenmy icons -

Warclouds Western Front, Warclouds WIngs Over Europe


Servers with Mostly Realistic settings > Cockpit Always on, No Externals, No Icons, No Map icons, All settings to realistic -

Spits Vs 109's, Ukdedicated 3



There are other seevers too with the options you are asking for (Western Front with bombers) but the ones above are the servers I have played on and enjoyed. Maybe some other people can suggest other good servers.

Dark, I recommend you get Hyperlobby and simply pick the server with teh settings you want. There are lots of bombers on all the servers I have listed above. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I recommend Ukdedicated 2 for fun, semi realistic, good times bombing. Friendly regulars, honourable, easy for bombers to find targets with F7 padlock. Just a great alround server where bombers have a real chnce to hit the targets and get away unscathed. On servers with no padlock, it can be very tough for a lone bomber to fly around on the deck trying to find the targets with preying fighters above just loitering above where they know the bombers are attacking.

Forget the cries of 'but padlock isnt realistic!', nor is the fighters knowing exactly what target you are going for and where to loiter, or bombers attacking singly, or being able to press 'refly' after a death. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yes, what Xi said, download hyperlobby and feast at how many server options you have. I am going to reccommend the more hardcore servers that don't allow external views, simply because if you like flying bombers, you can survive alot longer when enemies cant look behind their blind spots and press f6 to externally padlock your plan. You can get by taking off, bombing the enemy and returing to base a number of times due to the stealth factor realistic servers offer where more arcade servers you will get spotted very early and blown to bits.

Yes, this is a good point actually. However I think bombres are very visible to the enemy anyway once in 'F6-able' range. And as such will be seen anyway.

I believe that F7 to padlock the ground targets, especially if you are new to the map and have never played it before, helps a lot the bomber pilot to find the targets, and get in and out quick. Not be buzzing around for 5 minutes on the deck trying to see the exact placing of the targets.

Of course this is all a matter of opinion, and Stilleto makes excellent points.

Wichever you think is best, choose those settings. Also try and get some cover or other bopmbers to accompany you. Asking people who are just taking off at the same time as you is a good idea.

Make sure you make the chatbox bigger with your mouse so that you can see 5 or 6 lines of chat, ratrher than the default 1 line. Then you can chat to each other and call out bandits. Also the command <targets<blue or <targets<red should help you locate your targets.

Good luck! If I see you on a server, I will join and give you some cover!


By the way, Dark_P, come back and tell us which servers you have tried and enjoyed.
