The B25 seems fairly impervious to Japanese aircraft.

Garbage!

I would win at least 75% of all my online duals with fighters while flying my 111.

Very few people fly the bombers so the kills you are getting are probably c******nay sipping fighter jocks 'giving a bomber a go'for a bit of a change, not tested bomber pilots.

I agree on the He 111, and also the B25. They are stout aircraft and can absorb as well as give punishment. The Betty however is an unarmoured flying fuel tank. True, it is fast, and has a 20mm in the tail, but a couple of stray API rounds in the wing root and it's toast, literally.

Still I look forward to flying it.

Oh? You must be in a slow patch, if your Greatergreen stats are anything to go by... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The thing is though, and the point that many online fighter pilots seem to miss, is that most folk who fly the bombers know they're at a disadvantage, and don't care.

Hitting the ground targets-and surviving-is the name of the game; the fun is in the challenge.

No one looking forward to the Betty is actually expecting to shoot many fighters down... Though it will be fun when it happens, as it inevitably will...

u can do fairly well in a bomber, but its more the stupidity of the attacking fighters that gives u the kill, rather than the potency of your defensive guns http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If the "flyable" is anything like the AI version then, yes, they will take fire rapidly and easily, but they also seem to be able to fly for an inordinate amount of time after "lighting up".

Just look at it as a long fuse. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

No, it's not just you. I know I can more easily bring down a B-25 than a Betty since I have yet to fly the Betty. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Well I have plenty of b-25 kills to if I tally my closer than necessary encounters with the ground. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
