It there any way two players can be in the same airplane at one time. I.E. One as pilot and the other as tail gunner? I think that could be lots of fun.

In a coop mission it is possible, yes. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Sure is. We do it all the Time in COOPs, not sure if you can do it in multiplayer DF maps though.

and yes it is quite fun having your B-25 loaded out with real gunners.

Can it be done on an integrated server?

What do you mean by integrated?

If you mean Dogfight server then no. If you mean COOP game then yes.

My most memorable mission ever was riding in a B25 with Danjama as the pilot, System-M as the top gunner, and me as the rear gunner...on a bombing run....

it was just fantastic....flying with friends (I know both the guys in RL)...so there was more sort of impetus to protect the plane....the exitment was higher...

we got bounced by a 109 on the way to the target from six oclock high...I managed to nail him....he shot past trailing smoke....dan sort of "leapt for joy" over comms....then we swooped on the target and commenced a low bombing run with four other guys in B25s and a few fighters....wipped the target out....gt hit by flak..engine got hit....we managed to limp back to base after dodging a fighter patrol....when we came to land the landing gear didnt work...so dan made a perfect deadstick landing....we then jumped out...and then to top it off the plane set alight then blew up!

Sounds great. I've got one gunner (lousy pilot, who happens to be my son). Maybe we can get into an IL-2 or something.

Some of the most fun Coops I had in this game were those TB-3 wars.

That's right. four TB-3 bombers. Two in each team. Humans in all position going at each other. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

I used to sometimes play non-coop missions online with my son using the mouse in the tailgunner view - while i still flew the plane with the joystick - its a bit tricky flying from the tailgunner view though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif , but fun too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'm with Jaws2002. Dogfighting in TB-3 bombers is the stupidest, dumbest and yet the most funnest thing you can do in this sim. Turn on unlimited ammo, fill the planes up with humans and blast away!

man that was one of my best memories of this game, really was the best, i remember every detail now, from the 109 camouflage flashing past, to the airfield location that we set down. Amazing stuff. It seemed so real with you guys riding along, if it were up to me, it would always be done like that! Good times. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Brewst, FYI i am a very capable bomber pilot, able to bomb from altitudes of 7000m http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif maybe higher with practice! Bombers are one of the depths of this game that i urge everyone to explore, but it isnt for every idiot Spit pilot, there is alot to learn.

I got a fine Doolittle Mission, substitute for a "Tokio" map is Guadalcanal.

B-25s are quite fun http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
