Is there any chance we could select 8 aircraft in the QMB. This would allow bigger, closer groups of bombers to dive through.

I noticed because when trying to make a large amount of bomber in QMB, I could only go up to 4 per group and in the air, these groups were far apart from each other...

What would be cool is a whole squadron of bombers like in CF2 and also in BOB instead of having to make one in FMB....

It would reduce FPS but then again, you dont have to select that many bombers....

I was just going to say...make it in the FMB...but you said no to that. Kind of hard to do anything for you there.

In FMB I decided to finally make a group of 16 B-17 bombers all on a tightly arranged grid ranging about 200 meters in variety of altitude and probably just a bit more across (gotta fit all those bombers in ya know).

Makes a very tight grid of fire...especially when FW190's dive through the line trying to take out B-17's. I think they go down fairly quicky in AEP these days but the defensive firepower is still impressive. Fortunately a 8 ship group of P-47D-10's is on the point ready to shoot any FW190 that emerges intact.

Quite a mission...even slows my 2700+ down a bit.

If you can't stomach the FMB, and want to make missions with more than 16 aircraft per side, you need UQMG. Using the flight cloning feature, it is actually possible to set up reasonably realistic box formations, or as close as one can in FB anyhow.
