Hi all, i am making myself some missions to play, set on the western front with large bomber formations ie more than 4 or 8. As i was planning them out, i started wondering if certain german planes were tasked with the bombers, and others with the fighters, or whether it was just a case of do what you could. I'm sure i can remember that during the bob hurris were often tasked with the bombers, with spits distracting the 109's.

Just curious, with a view to making the missions more realistic.

cheers in advance.

Usually there were heavy formation destroyers (BF-110, BF210, BF410, sometimes even Ju88's), FW-190 usually got the bomber intercept job and there were units of 109's that would do only high cover.

Good info and specialized skins here http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif:
