a) Development priority is BoB which means Maddox Games is only trying to add 3rd Party planes which have been "ready" a while back.

b) Developing a large plane takes 4-5 times the time/ressources than a single-engined fighter. Such projects have proved to be impossible for 3rd party developers.

c) A 4-engined flyable plane has no real place in FB/PF because we have not the map sizes necessary to simulate the use of such strategical planes. Using them on small maps is hardly "realistic" (airstarts, lack of range problems/fuel management, lack of time to climb to altitude ...).

PS: c) is just my opinion.

Yeah! Don't speak for us all! And if you are a real IL-2 fan, then you should know, that you already got your 4 engine beasty bomber!

Last night I "flew" the B-29 on the RCAF-FB server.
Imagine how much havoc this plane can create during a single pass over an enemy base, dropping ten 2000pnd bombs!
I wished I had a flyable cockpit so my aim would have been much better. This plane proved to be quite capable of defending itself, not in the last place because it has a really marvelous topspeed, also at treetop.

If you want to fly four engine heavy beasts you really should try MS Flight Simulator 2004 plus the addon from Shockwave Productions called Wings of Power WWII Bombers and Jests.

There are some good heavies (B-29, B-24, B-17, Lancaster) if you get the firepower addon for cfs3. You can drop a nuke out of a B-29 and there's also some little nuke to mount on the Ar234.

There are rumors that the Russian knock off of the B-29 will be flyable in the Russian only addon. The plane is an exact replica of the B-29 so I don't think there would be a lot of work involved in converting it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif. The problems are: the plane may never be implemented in the game to begin with and we may never get the Russia only content.

Mini nuke!
That's what I miss - that attention to realism. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
