Hi all ,

Last night I saw a documentary on National Geographic on the horrors in Japanese working camps in Thailand(?) and the "Bridge on the river Kwai". In this documentary, a veteran spoke about a 'secret' mission his B-24 squad had to fullfil in 1943. They were to test and use the new bombing system "AZON". The first radio-controlled guided bombing system...
Here's one link for additional info:

I was impressed by the accuracy this system was able to reach, at that time! All D(irect) H(its), even with just a singel bomb! With this system a/some B-24/s destoyed, amongst others, the birdge on the river Kwai.

I was wondering .... IF http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif we should get some more American bombers flyable in this game (besides the B-25) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif, of which I'm eagerly awaiting the B-17 and B-29 (with atomic bomb, jeeez where is it???) and/or the Liberator too, to have this bomb system integrated too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I fear you will not see it in this game, there was allready a request to german radiocontrolled gliderbombs like the FritzX or HS293, have heard that Oleg stated that it will not be possible to get the bombsteering in the code.
But yes, such things would be nice. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
