How come I can fly with the B-17 but not fly the aircraft it's self? This is one of the greats and being a bomber pilot that's one I want to master.

Yep...and its alot of work to make multiple bomber stations to exacting specifications.

We did see a B-29 being mostly completed. It looked bloody fantastic actually...wondering where that got off to.

a lanc is worth nearly 2 american bombers, in bomb load (plus way more varied loads)

any european map.
also some russian maps maybe

bomber harris kept them all for bomber command and normal ops as far as he could.

halifax was a better coastal command cos of its wing bomb bays (central filled with fuel).

lancs would have been part of the tiger force for the pacific too.

until the b29 was fixed, the lancaster was THE heavy 4 engine bomber.

for best medium, i think mossie/ju88/pe2 and wellignton gave a good showing early war...

b25 has a small bomb load, but its a good attack aircraft with guns and rockets http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Sadly my Heart longed for a flyble B-24.

But as we all now know the chance of getting any further American Aircraft (bombers included) are about the same as a snow balls in hell. It just ain't gonna happen. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
