Hello,

I have a question lately Oleg has been releasing wonderful patches that have better sceenery and new flyable planes. Does Oleg ever plan to make the big bombers (B-17s, B-29s, Pe-8s, etc.) flyable? It would be very wonderful to fly and see the inside cockpit of a B-29 or a B-17.

If anyone has any information let me know

thnx-

Don't bet money on it.

Pretty sure no. They take a bucketload of time to develop (modeling a B-17 would take as much or more work as 10 single-seat fighters), and for the most part the game does not really provide an arena for their use.

Yeh, I would give it up. There are no flyable heavy bombers in this game. If your interested (probably not) CFS3 has 3rd party addons for heavy bombers, some MAGNIFICENT, some not. But up to you if you really have to do that ground pounding.

Some of the flight model stuff was put into the latest PF patch. A testbed for BoB if you will. As for the heavy bombers, don't hold your breath. As stated above, for the time spent modeling 1 heavy bomber (looks and flight at Oleg's attention to detail level) multiple fighters can be done. This expands the number of flyables faster but at the expense of not being able to fly some very prominent bombers. I mostly fly the B-25 and would love to fly a B-17. Will it happen for BoB? The potential is there but I personally wouldn't count on it.
