In a manly sort of way of course.

Quad .50's, bombs, gunners...what's not to love? Blow up all kinds of stuff. Had a FW-190 stray in front of my sights and blew his a$$ to kraut heaven!!

Oh yeah, The A-20 rocks. I wish they could give us an A-26 as well. Invaders are my fave medium bomber.

My fave torpedo plane. You can jink into the target resonably well and take a lickin to boot. Give me a flight of A-20's and the Yamato in my sights and I'd be in hog heaven. You can dogfight her too as MajExtreme and 99th WindDancer have shown me on numerous occaisions.

+1 for the A20. Its like an even bigger P47 with two engines and two rear gunners.

If only they had modelled the fire interrupters like in real life on the dorsal turret guns... Hate shooting my rudder to pieces... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Yes this is one sweet plane.On paper a Mosquito walks all over it but the A20 turns so much better it can even mix it with below average fighters .Ive killled 2 109s in recent weeks with the 4 x30s on the C version....The G with 6 50cal mgs is a monster for the unsuspecting single engined noob.It can climb to very slow speeds without stalling out as the Mossie would .Lovely plane...

What's not to love about the A-20? It even takes torpedos!

The only thing is the skin mapping. There are some weird mapping going on around the engines, and uneven warping of the fuselage. That's too bad, because there are lots of very nice historical schemes for it.

Correction...the A-20G is actually a six gunned .50cal armed plane. So its quite quite the punch and all of its packed into a very small space. Its a very nice bonus for an aircraft with a relatively decent sized bomb bay.

Its a beast. Its easy to see why pilots in the 5th Air Force couldn't get enough of them.

Real men fly bombers http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

but i have to agree with Friendly_flyer, the skin mapping is bad, pity that the bombers are lacking when it comes to modles and skins http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

But hoppfully we will see some sweet bombers in storm of war http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

the skin mapping is bad

The mapping really is pretty good compared to the Spit, and many more planes for this sim.

The A-20 is about on par with the P-51 or the P-47. So mapping isn't a issue, only the skinner working the skin is the issue.

I also have to say that I'm really really glad they added the A-20C. It lets us include this fantastic aircraft in more historical scenarios and gives us a bombsight option.

The A-20C in its respective era is a awesome aircraft. Fast, good payload, bombsight, MGs, whats not to like. Play your cards right and its difficult for an enemy to catch you.

I prefer bombers but I have never cared much for the A-20. In this item I like the Ju 88, He 111H, Ar 234, Do 335A-0, D3A1, SBD, and the Pe 2, but I really enjoy flying the Hampden in FSX. If only there was a B-26 for IL-2.

For those who came in late:

A-20=THE SCHNIZZLE!

Went out for my first twin engine strike tonight ever on line and knocked out 2 a/c (static) and some AAA.

Pacific map, on UBI.

Next thing I know A-20's and betty's are everywhere! Much fun!
