Has any of you lucky bastards http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif that have the AEP tried to attack a bomber stream of 10 or more B-17s with Bf-110G-2? Apparently this was a very effective tactic until the advent of long range escort. I've played a QM in FB 1.22 version where i flew the 190 and I assigned the AI to control two flights of Bf-110 G-2 with MG151/20x2 pod and 2xMG108. Well.. I really felt sorry for those poor B-17s, all butchered up like that...

Here a nice link to a WW2 picture taken by B-17 gunner of a Me-410 breaking off after a close range attack.

That's the photo on the cover of my copy of "Last Flight of the Luftwaffe" by Adrian Wier.

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

Take them head on and hit the wings with slashing attacks. 20mm or mk108's. Both work well. Then set it up and do it again.

Be patient, hit the ones on the perimeter and keep your "E" up. A friendly to help distract some of the defensive gunners are invaluable too!

I hate bomber-attacking missions. I find the AI gunners totally unrealistic.
