I wonder why the Panzerknacker Stuka dosen't get much time outside the hangar?

It seems like a good choice on an online map. It has a brutal enough armament to satisfy the point hungry player. Plus the necessity to loiter over the battlefield and make as many as twelve atack runs leaves them highly vulnerable to intercepting fighters. Compared to a typical "drop 'em and run" bomber. This would keep the other side happy too.

Alas, it seems that this one is the sole preserve of the off-line player http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I guess it's the fear of those YP-80 drivers...

Getting PKed by a Stuka from 3km away isn't too nice for their ego you know...

It was one of the most feared planes, when it was introduced. Not because it was good, but because it was armed with HEP munitions. If you had the chance for a single hit, your opponent was dead meat.

I remember flying a sortie online. In head-ons I shot down 2 B17 and an LA7 each with a single shot. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

It gets used on UK-Dedicated...thats about the only place I've seen it. Its definately an Eastern Front aircraft....Kursk battle almost specifically.

This is my guess.

It's really useless in most situations and the earlier ones do a better job.
The G is ungainly and heavy and can't defend itself aswell as the other ones, wich can do limited dogfighting and have better chances to hit a fighter or evade an attack.

Some servers have it but few use it.
It ofcourse can nock out tanks but if one see an enemy fighter it's best to bail.

It would be fun to have it if the opposition wasn't overwhelmingly superior, but maps wich are created especially for stukapilots seem scarce.

In this game even bombing is done better by fighters.

It would be nice if it made an appearence on Spit vs 109. As I understand it, small numbers were used in the West (but certainly more than the long-cannoned 262 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif). Not to mention its involvement in the Med.

I thought maybe its been blamed for causing lag or something.
