Hi guys,

I havn't played any of Oleg's games before although I have heard a lot of good things about them. I'm looking for a good WW2 flightsim and with this nearing release and the fact we can fly some smaller bombers I'm keen to hear more about the coop side which is mostly what I will buy the game for.

Can anybody help with these questions please? I tried searching these forums and the game site but can't find much on coop play.

Can I be in the same plane as a real teamate? e.g. fly rear gunner in a 2 seater or can 2 or more people be in the same bomber? bombadier, gunner, pilot, etc.

If 2 or more people can be in a bomber does one of us have to fly or can we switch to both gunners while the AI flies for us?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, you can. Only in coop though... not in dog fights where it would be really usefull http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

You can "jump around" to all positions if you're alone.. don't know about coop as I've never tried it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif But I would imagine that you can.

In a COOP, the pilot is able to switch to all positions on the plane, while human gunners can only switch between gunner positions.
However, the AI will not fly the plane for you, the pilot will still be in control of the plane even when controling a gun.
The pilot can put a level (altitude) hold on bombers, this is a way of quickly trimming the plane for level flight... but all it will do is fly level.

In the past I have with squadmates, filled two He-111s with human gunners, and let them dogfight... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Yeah, you can have an entire group of guys man a bomber. The pilot still has to use the bombsight and fly the plane but you can fill the other positions entirely with humans if you so choose.

Some COOPs should be good fun with human manned A-20's for instance. That'd be good fun. I've had a few good games flying as the turret gunner on a Bf-110 or a IL-2. Once I even accidentally shot part of the tail section off in a gunning frenzy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

COOPs are sometimes the best and most fun part of this game actually. There are some great games I've had, particularly with the well organized VFC COOP nights. Can't wait to see those return.
